Midway gut check on the movies of 2007

Posted By on Tue, Aug 7, 2007 at 8:33 PM

Swear ta God, I could just spend my entire day surfing around Rotten Tomatoes (wait, don’t I do that already), but a recent link really has me transfixed. It’s a simple item, really, and indicative of the site's latest trend toward All Things List.

But considering we’re past the midway point of 2007, it’s a gas to check out the film review site’s “Mid-Year Report,” counting down the 25 best reviewed movies, as well as the 10 worst.

Some interesting tidbits:

• 14 out of the 25 are American-made films

• All but two (The Italian, Starter for 10) have screened in Atlanta. Starter for 10 just came out on DVD last week.

• The worst-reviewed film, Because I Said So, clocked in at a lowly 5 percent on the Tomatometer.

• The No. 1 pick, Ratatouille, rocks so hard it’s ridiculous.

Well done, critics — including our own film critics, Felicia Feaster and Curt Holman. Click on these movie titles to see their reviews.
