Also, with regard to who determines whether it is rotten or fresh [In reply to] Can't Post

I think we were both right. Here is what it says:


Quote
Most critics from the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS) enter their own quotes and ratings. For critics who don't enter in their own quotes and ratings, it's basically up to the judgment of the editors. They take into account word choice, rating (if any), tone, and who the critic is in their determination of whether a review is positive or not. If an editor is not certain about a review, it is sent to another editor for a second opinion. "Wishy-washy" reviews, reviews that are really difficult to determine if the critic recommends the film or not, are usually given a Rotten because if the critic is not confident enough to give the movie even an implied recommendation, then we shouldn't either.


If I am understanding it correctly the reviewers set the rating of fresh or rotten, unless they don't, in which case the RT editors do. So we were both right, in a way.

'But very bright were the stars upon the margin of the world, when at times the clouds about the West were drawn aside.'
