I do not need to jinx it, however Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman debuted to a 100 % score on Rotten Tomatoes. Maybe that does not imply a lot to you, and it might not final at 100% till the movie‘s November 27 arrival on Netflix, nevertheless it’s uncommon to have that a lot essential settlement. Most films with 100 % scores are classics like Citizen Kane, Laura, The Philadelphia Story, or Modern Times. But typically a very trendy film like The Irishman will handle to impress each posting critic, and I included three of these choices among the many eight (OK, 10) beneath.
Some top-rated films can be found free of charge by way of streamers like Tubi (which has The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) or no matter HBO/Starz may need streaming any explicit month. Unfortunately, most 100%-ers are usually not on Netflix proper now, and despite the fact that they are on Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, iTunes, YouTube, and so forth., you’ll have to pay a small price. But in case you make a stink about wanting these titles on Netflix, possibly the streamer will put its again into getting them. After all, with Disney+ debuting November 12, now’s one of the best time to maximise leverage with Netflix to herald what YOU need to see.
Akira Kurosawa is among the best filmmakers of all time, however the Japanese icon solely has one film that is at present 100% licensed contemporary film on Rotten Tomatoes. Rashomon, Ran, and Throne of Blood are shut — and Ikiru is 100% however not licensed as a result of it has too few evaluations. But Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai) has 61 evaluations and they’re all optimistic. The 1954 film is among the most influential films ever made, inspiring each the 1960 Western The Magnificent Seven and the 2016 remake, amongst many different movies. Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress (97% RT from 31 critics) famously impressed George Lucas’ Star Wars.
Leave No Trace
I’m ready for Debra Granik to change into a family title. She co-wrote and directed the Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone with Jennifer Lawrence, and in addition co-wrote and directed Leave No Trace, which got here out in 2018 and is the second most-reviewed film to have a 100% approval score on Rotten Tomatoes. (#1 is a bit additional down on this record). Ben Foster performs an Iraq War veteran with PTSD who raises his 13-year-old daughter (Thomasin McKenzie) off the grid in a park, till they’re pressured to enter social companies. The movie actually left a hint with 218 critics up to now, who all gave it a thumbs-up. The viewers rating is a barely decrease 81% from 4,496 scores, however there is no doubt it is a highly effective movie. That does not imply it is destined to be seen as one of many best movies of all time, since 100% approval does not imply A+ grades from everybody, simply sufficient that each single critic was prepared to really helpful it.
I do not buy many films on disc anymore, however I purchased Alfred Hitchcock – The Masterpiece Collection in a swanky field set and it is significantly one in every of my most prized possessions. Rear Window will not be the one Hitchcock film to earn a 100% licensed RT score — Rebecca is on the record too — however the Jimmy Stewart/Grace Kelly film is one in every of my favorites for a lot of causes. I know I’m not alone there, because the movie is acknowledged as one of many best of all time. Sixty-five critics gave Rear Window its 100% score and it has a powerful 95% viewers rating from 150,518 customers.
Toy Story & Toy Story 2
Maybe it is dishonest to have two films right here, however each the 1995 film Toy Story and its 1999 sequel Toy Story 2 managed to tug off 100% licensed contemporary scores. The first film obtained its 100% from 87 critics, with an enormous 1,109,209 customers giving the film a 91% viewers rating. Toy Story 2 has its 100% from 169 critics and a barely decrease 86% viewers rating from practically 1 million customers. Toy Story 3 has a 98% RT score with Toy Story 4 at 97%, so that is clearly a franchise that is aware of learn how to stick the touchdown with followers.
Both Toy Story films can be found for streaming on Amazon, YouTube, iTunes, GooglePlay, and Vudu from $3. If you need to wait, I’m positive Disney+ shall be getting them quickly, since that service debuts November 12 and can supply lots of new and basic content material. You can join now for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a yr.
12 Angry Men
Henry Fonda’s basic courtroom drama is a superb psychological experiment, in addition to only a compelling and well-written movie. There’s additionally a 1997 remake you could look ahead to comparability. Reginald Rose wrote the unique script for a 1954 stay manufacturing on CBS. It was rewritten by Rose for the stage after which once more for the 1957 film. Fifty critics determined it was value its 100% contemporary standing, with 105,00zero customers coming shut with a 97% RT viewers rating.
Singin’ within the Rain
This film places a goofy grin on my face and it stays put all day. If you are fortunate, you may catch Singin’ within the Rain on TV typically, however this can be a good film to have the ability to play on demand. Because typically you simply want a “Good Morning” happiness increase, and there is nothing like singing and dancing together with Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, and Debbie Reynolds. Singin’ within the Rain — which was co-directed and choreographed by Gene Kelly — is actually one of many best musicals of all time, in line with each critics and followers.
Remember above, when I mentioned Leave No Trace was the second most-reviewed film to have a 100% approval score on RT? Paddington 2 is the primary. With 235 evaluations, Paddington 2 is the best-reviewed film on the location. That does not imply it is rivaling Citizen Kane for one of the best film ever made, nevertheless it simply managed to onerous stare previous probably the most cynical critics on its approach to an ideal approval score.
All About Eve
Fasten your seatbelts, it’ll be a bumpy night time! Actually, this basic makes for a deliciously clean watch. Bette Davis performs iconic growing old Broadway actress Margo Channing with Anne Baxter as her younger admirer-turned-rival. In 1950, screenwriter/director Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s film — primarily based on the brief story “The Wisdom of Eve” by Mary Orr — earned a file 14 Oscar nominations. It was the primary movie to have 4 feminine appearing nominations. Sixty-six critics authorized it to its 100% score, with 45,00zero RT customers going for 94%.
BONUS: The Godfather
OK, The Godfather will not be 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, it is solely at 98% — illustrating one of many flaws of RT! However, The Godfather does have a Metascore of 100 on Metacritic, from 15 critics. It’s additionally #2 on IMDb customers’ record of high rated films, which begins with The Shawshank Redemption (90% RT, 80 Metascore) earlier than heading to The Godfather. Not each film on this RT record obtained a Metascore of 100 — though Rear Window did — and never each film with a Metascore of 100 obtained a 100% RT contemporary score. Francis Ford Coppola’s mafia class The Godfather simply appeared like a very good addition to this record, since we’re main as much as one other well-received crime film in The Irishman.
There are so many extra classics to select from, so go forward and take a look at Rotten Tomatoes’ record of 100% films and choose a number of to stream on Amazon or your most well-liked streamer.
