After a long week at work, it’s time to relax, grab a box of popcorn and watch a film – but what are the best films currently on at cinemas?
To figure out which films are worth leaving the house for, Lincolnshire Business has turned to reviews website Rotten Tomatoes to rank each release by how the critics found them.
Rotten Tomatoes bases each film’s overall percentage on its critical reviews. A score of 60%+ classes the film as ‘fresh’, while a score under 59% classes the film as ‘rotten’.
Take a look at the top six for this week:
- Critic score: 97%
