    New Film Critics Aggregator Challenges Rotten Tomatoes

    Never rest on your laurels. When something is working, something new and improved comes along. While many of my pals prefer critics' aggregator Metacritic, which is leaner, more elegant, pickier and more pure than the mighty but messier, more inclusive and more crowded Rotten Tomatoes, there's a new...
