Top 10 Movies that Should Have Higher Rotten Tomatoes Scores

The Top Ten

1 Forrest Gump

Brilliant film. Did it deserve Best Picture over Pulp Fiction & The Shawshank Redemption? That's debateable. Did it deserve the utter vitriol and backlash it received as a result (hence the lower than expected RT score)? Of course not. While slightly sappy, this is a very well done movie which is well paced, acted and written. Not to mention that this is one of the few movies to nearly bring me to tears. Great movie which is unfairly hated. - Mrveteran

Great movie. Deserves a better score.

I guess, but rt just compiles reviews - VideoGamefan5

2 Home Alone
3 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

What I'm seeing right now is that you're saying that more people need to like the movies you like? - NikBrusk

4 13 Going on 30
5 Godzilla (2014)

It's 74% Is Just About Right In My Opinion - JPK

6 Transformers

Judging a movie by it's sequels is like judging a book by it's cover. It is a serious error in judgement.

59% is almost right for this - VideoGamefan5

7 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

10 Cars 3

Why does this movie have 67%?! It's the best of the franchise, and overall it's a great movie! - FJS19

Good movie but I respect the critics, at least 90% liked it on Google - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 Cars

Deserves 89%. NOT 74%! So dumb Rotten Tomatoes!

74%?!?! It's better than most of thr other Pixar movies! So stupid Rotten Tomatoes!

Best childhood memory! what Rotten Tomatoes!

12 Brother Bear
13 The Fox and the Hound

Of course disney put this here - VideoGamefan5

14 The Lion King 2 - Simba's Pride

I really like this movie

15 Madagascar

Love the penugins

16 Interstellar

71% is so low. This film was really amazing and is certainly one of the best works of Nolan. The movie deserves at least a 89%. I really just don't understand why it got such a low score.

Underrated film.

Interstellar was amazing.

It should be in the 90s.

17 Avengers: Age of Ultron
18 Ted
19 Death Becomes Her
20 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rotten tomatoes is dumb! It should of got a 13%

Maybe It Should Have Gotten The Same Score As The Force Awakens, But 84% Is Ok. - masoncarr2244

This should get a higher score on Rotten Tomatoes. It only got an 84% on Rotten Tomatoes, while Star Wars Rebels, which isn't even that good, got a 100%.

Star Wars Rebels is overrated and Rogue One is underrated.

It was a terrible movie - VideoGamefan5

21 Jurassic World
22 Dumb and Dumber
23 The Aristocats
24 Watchmen

Very underrated comic book movie, which is very adult in terms of character, thematic substance and moral ambiguity. Not to mention how great the acting is and it's love for the source material. - Mrveteran

25 Elektra
26 Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
27 Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

At the very least, this is a very ambitious and daring movie, the likes of which we don't see anymore, at least not on this scale. It's polarisation among viewers is understandable, but at the same time, this is a very interesting film which is very stylish and very well acted. Considering that and the fact that critics seem to love other films like this that are far inferior (like 2001 or whatever pretentiousness Terrence Malick feels poorly out), this deserves a higher score. Not a great movie, but a unique one. - Mrveteran

28 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
29 Power Rangers
30 Beauty and the Beast (2017)
31 The Neon Demon
32 300
33 Suicide Squad

I Can Smell Hate Comments From A Mile Away - JPK

I think this should get a higher score than Batman vs Superman - Lucasw14

34 The Revenant
35 Fun and Fancy Free

In my opinion thiss was not a good film and that it belongs on the movies that should have lower rotten tomatoes scores list. It has two incredibly boring story's, a ventriloquist who is terrible (you can see his mouth open), two creepy, ugly and unlikable dolls and a little girl whose acting is so contrived and cringy that I hope she never starred in a movie again.

Just found out the little girl in this film did star in other movies, Oh dear God why!?!?!?

36 Friday the 13th
37 Pokemon the First Movie
38 Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
39 Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
40 The Jungle Book
41 Shrek

Score should be about 98% - Lucasw14

42 Avatar

Score should be higher than Titanic - Lucasw14

43 Sing

The audience really loves it. How come trolls a movie not as good as this is certified fresh but sing is just fresh it should be 85 percent

Doesn't Deserve 72% - JPK

As Of December 23, It's At 71%, But Since The General Public Really Likes This Movie, I Guess It Deserved A Better Score.
NOTE-I Liked It.

44 Minions
45 The Hand that Rocks the Cradle
47 Batman Begins
48 My Little Pony: The Movie (2017)
49 Space Jam
50 Alien vs Predator
