Mario Galaxy was a more artful game than Breath of the Wild and Metroid Prime.

This is so exciting.

9.1 is a stunning average.

Best picture material here folks. Nolan's way overdue, he changed superhero films, and now he's changing war films too.

Sounds like they are getting one of the 70MM non Imax prints. They exist.

The average score is what's going to separate this from the other similar RT scores...like SMH has a great score of 92%, but only a 7.6 average score.

That's why the % is bullshit, I think GAF should switch to the average score for thread titles.

Which is why the 9.1 rating is so stunning. Like, that's almost unheard of.

Gravity has a 9/10. Same with Social Network.

Mad Max Fury Road is at 8.6, but it started around 9/10 as well.

A 98 metascore with more than 5-6 reviews is insane, there's a 70 and 75 sprinkled in the average too.

Moonlight has a 9, Dunkirk is currently below that.

EDIT: Sorry, Dunkirk has higher again, anyhow it's about the same as Moonlight.

It's really hard to tell because they put so much emphasis on the percentage. But for reference, MM: Fury Road got an 8.6.

But this certainly isn’t a “Harry Styles movie” or a “Tom Hardy movie.” Instead, it’s an experience. And it’s a theatrical experience unlike pretty much anything I’ve seen before. It’s non-stop intensity that will both exhaust a viewer and make one grateful that we didn’t actually have to live through that hell.

What a quote. Goddamn!!!!!!

The rotten/fresh score for this seems like it would be exceptionally high considering all the praise of the "Experience". How bad does the actual movie have to be for a reviewer to not recommend the film?

I just remembered them scoring very high off the top of my head so I manually searched them to see what the actual numbers were.

Not sure if you can get just a list sorted by avg rating.

This is some quote from the EW review

Nolan has for all intents and purposes conjured the British response to Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan. If you can imagine that film’s kinetic, nerve-wracking 29-minute opening D-Day invasion stretched out to feature length, this is what it would look like.

For me, it's been Wonder Woman, then It Comes at Night, then Baby Driver, then Spider-Man, then Apes, and now (seemingly) Dunkirk. So good.
