Rotten Tomatoes

At film festival time in Auckland it's always easy to decide which films to go and see. Just wait for the list of films the Society for the Promotion of Community Standards (doesn't that sound Orwellian?) is going to try and get banned, and you know immediately which ones to book. Saves time wading through the ever thickening festival catalogue looking for interesting movies.
The Society also provides hints on which films to avoid. They actually promote films by taking them to the Censor to be re-classified as suitable for children, such as that recent Mel Gibson S&M dirge. You then just avoid them like the plague.
