Armond White spoils Get Out's perfect rotten tomatoes score

It’s still early, but Get Out has been the movie of 2017. Get Out, which was written and directed by Jordan Peele, was the number one movie in the country last week, taking in over $30 million dollars at the box office.

It also, for a while, achieved something very few movies had: it accumulated a perfect 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, with over a 100 critics unanimously praising the movie.

Well that score dropped on Monday when controversial movie critic Armond White bashed the film in the National Review. This isn’t the first time White has done something like this. In 2010, White gave Toy Story 3 a negative review, spoiling its perfect score.

After the score dropped, Get Out star Lakeith Stanfield tweeted then deleted a not-so-nice tweet about White. Film and TV critic Charles Bramesco screenshotted the tweet:

This critic ruined ‘Get Out’s’ percent Rotten Tomatoes score...Lakeith Stanfield was not here for It.
So Get Out won’t have a 100 percent score. But 99 percent isn’t too shabby.


  • Not a coincidence when he did the same thing to Toy Story 3

    I’m not sure why Armond White’s reviews even count. His writing is disjointed garbage that is rarely about the movie he is “reviewing”. He is a contrarian troll. He has piled up negative reviews for 12 Years a Slave, Moonlight, Toy Story and really any good movie.

    Toy Story 3 was crap – an absolute repackaging of the previous superior sequel to grab more cash from nostalgia-obssessed parents. Where is it written that a reviewer has to agree with the rest of the herd? What a petulant child that actor was for his tweet .. get over it.. not everyone is going to like everything you do.

      lol let’s be real. critics are nothing more than cancer, and if you think that’s the reason why he bashed a good movie then you’re an idiot. Look at the pattern, it’s too fucking coincidental, and let me tell you coincidence doesn’t exist.

      Critics are for the most part hipsters. Anything that a lot of people like they are inclined to dislike only because a large amount of people think something is good.

      The actor had the right to post what he did and sadly he didn’t have the balls to keep that tweet up to avoid comments from the cry baby PC elitists like yourself. Armond is indeed a fuckin bitch.

      PC ? .. do you even know what that means?

    A 100% score for any artistic endeavor is an insult to artists, and complete bullshit. I liked the movie okay, but would not have given it the highest score. Sorry. If you have a hard time living in a cultural climate that allows for some nuance, get a time machine and travel to 1970s Moscow.
