In case Black Panther hasn’t had enough success just yet, we have another thing to throw on the pile of wins for the film. In case you didn’t know, Rotten Tomatoes has a list of “Top 100 Movies Of All Time.” These are movies that are rated as the highest reviewed movies of all time, and as of today, it looks like Black Panther has taken the crown for the number one reviewed film.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Black Panther only has a 97 percent, and movies like Get Out and Paddington 2 are closer to 100 percent, so how has Black Panther won?”
While this is speculation, I’d bet this has to do with the number of total reviews given. Black Panther has 310 total reviews, while Get Out and Paddington 2 only have 300 and 187 total reviews, respectively. Given that each individual review is given weight, perhaps the sheer number of reviews helped make up for the fact that it didn’t actually get 100 percent approval from critics.
Regardless of the specifics, the fact is that Rotten Tomatoes currently has it placed at the top of the list. That, coupled with the movie’s amazing success at the box office, is enough to paint this film as an enormous victory for Marvel Studios. Never has a film of this size achieved this success, and the fact that it’s a film with a mostly non-white cast is another huge positive for social progress.
What do you think of Black Panther becoming the number one movie of all time, according to Rotten Tomatoes? Is it deserving? Let us know your thoughts down below!
