Paddington 2 just stole the top spot from Citizen Kane!
There’s been a change in the movie universe. It’s a massive one too. It might be the biggest movie change ever to happen and it could potentially affect everything movie-related going forward. I also might be exaggerating this but it's still a big deal. Rotten Tomatoes, the review aggregator that stands above all else just revealed that the number one ranked movie on their site just dropped to number 2.
Citizen Kane is no longer the number one movie! If you’ve never heard of it, Citizen Kane is considered to be one of the greatest movies of all time, has been parodied, referenced, and poked and prodded by mainstream media for years, and now it rests at a pathetic 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. 99%. That's second best. And like Ricky Bobby says if you're not first you're last. So what cinematic classic now stands above the rest as the highest-rated movie of all time? PADDINGTON 2!
Yup, Paddington 2 is now the highest-rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes with a 100% rating. I’m not gonna lie, it's one of my favourite movies. If you’ve never watched it with your kids, they will get a kick out of it. It’s hilarious! You've got Hugh Grant playing an over-the-top out-of-work actor and the villain of the film and Paddington wonderfully voiced by Ben Whishaw. I made my parents watch Paddington 1 with me a few years ago, and even though they had their reservations about it, they ended up loving it as much as I did, so I can definitely recommend it for adults as well. If you've got time this weekend to watch something with the kids, make it this!
