'Lady Bird's' Perfect 100 Percent Rotten Tomatoes Rating Ruined By This Guy

  'Lady Bird's' Perfect 100 Percent Rotten Tomatoes Rating Ruined By This Guy "Lady Bird" just got its wings clipped. The coming-of-age tale written and directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Saoirse Ronan had become the best-reviewed movie on Rotten Tomatoes. After 196 reviews, it still maintained an 100 percent fresh rating, surpassing "Toy Story 2." Now, that's been ruined thanks to one dude named Cole Smithey. He posted a review on his website this weekend that give "Lady Bird" a B-minus. That brought its Rotten Tomatoes rating down to 99 percent. Smithey declared "Lady Bird" was "far from perfect" and added, "There are dozens of coming-of-age films that far outweigh this lightweight contender." (It should be noted he gave both "Wonder Woman" and "Dunkirk" an F, so that should tell you something.) "Lady Bird" may not have its 100 percent rating anymore, but it's still flying high — it just received four Golden Globe nominations yesterday.

The American Film Institute has spoken, further legitimizing the Oscar prospects of female-driven titles from 2017, six of which were hailed Thursday as the nonprofit organization’s best movies of the year.

Benefitting most from this trustworthy Oscar foreteller are Patty Jenkins’ blockbuster hit Wonder Woman, which picks up its first major precursor accolade here, as well as Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird and Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water — both of which maintained significant profiles on the awards circuit in recent weeks.

2017 New York Film Critics Circle winners announced: See the full list

  2017 New York Film Critics Circle winners announced: See the full list As the dust settles in the wake of The Post‘s firm landing atop the National Board of Review’s annual top 10 list (and reliable best picture-nominee bellwether), the awards train is chugging right along, as the New York Film Critics Circle — the first of many major journalist collectives set to bestow year-end accolades upon 2017’s best films — announced its annual crop of winners on Thursday, positioning Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird atop the competition as its best film of 2017. Critics groups around the country — namely organizations in New York, Los Angeles, as well as the Broadcast Film Critics Association — have established themselves as key players in the weeks leading up to the Academy Award nominations, often heralding the official entry of late-breaking contenders into the race at large, though they often place a spotlight on smaller, independent, and internationally-skewing titles and performances that otherwise might not have registered on industry voters’ radars. This year, the NYFCC has given a key push to several fringe contenders hovering around the edges of the Oscar race, placing a spotlight on Girls Trip supporting actress Tiffany Haddish, whose standout role in perhaps the year’s most beloved comedy (and one of the genre’s biggest box office hits of 2017) could translate to a Melissa McCarthy-style nod from the Academy if she maintains momentum with larger awards bodies in the weeks ahead.

Though not directed by women, The Shape of Water, Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Steven Spielberg’s The Post, and Sean Baker’s The Florida Project all feature women at the head of their respective narratives, making this list a refreshingly female collective when compared to previous years.

Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name similarly occupy space on the AFI’s top 10, rounding out what has been a remarkable year for representation in the run-up to the Academy Awards.

Since the Academy expanded the best picture category in 2009 to include anywhere between five and 10 nominees after a preferential vote, the AFI’s list has matched roughly five to eight Academy contenders per year. Most recently, seven 2016 best picture contenders preceded their Oscar nominations with an appearance on the AFI’s top 10.

Baby penguin 'Maru' takes first public waddle in Singapore .
A baby king penguin waddled into view in Singapore's bird park on Wednesday, the first of its kind to be born there in close to a decade. Maru, which means "round" in Japanese, came from parents Zoro and Sora, part of the king penguin herd in the Jurong Bird Park's penguin exhibit. To maximise survival chances, keepers retrieved the egg and incubated it until it hatched in October. Weighing just 200g at birth, the hatchling was raised by keepers away from the colony on a blended fish diet and has now progressed to eating herring fillets and capelin. At 6kg, it is now 30 times its original weight.
