It’s been a big year for movies and tomatoes alike.
Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes said Wednesday that 2016 has seen a record amount of “certified fresh” ratings on its website, with 17.4 percent of the year’s film releases receiving the distinction.
A movie is deemed “fresh” when it has a 75 percent or higher rating after a set amount of reviews have been tallied — 80 for wide releases and 40 for limited-release movies.
Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight, Hell or High Water and Hunt for the Wilderpeople are a few of the films that scored in the top 90th percentile of the year, while the eight-hour documentary O.J.: Made in America and the Spanish-language film Neruda were among the 100-percent rated films of 2016.
At 18.3 percent, 2011 is the highest percentage of Rotten Tomatoes “certified fresh” releases.
