Does Rotten Tomatoes rate movies & television shows?
No, Rotten Tomatoes does not rate movies or television shows. The Tomatometer illustrates specific reviews collected by Rotten Tomatoes from verified critics. Those reviews are marked positive or negative by Rotten Tomatoes to provide audiences with a general idea of how many critics enjoyed a movie or television show based on the total number of reviews collected. For example. 7 positive reviews and 3 negative reviews for a total of 10 reviews would equate to a 70% Tomatometer score. Please visit the Rotten Tomatoes website for more information.
What is the difference between the words "toward" and "towards"?
There is no significant difference when using either one of the two words. "Toward" is more common in the United States and Canada, while "towards" is frequently used in the United Kingdom. While both are grammatically correct, the word "towards" does not enhance the word "toward" in any meaningful way. For example, the sentence, "I walked towards him," does not offer any new information when compared to the sentence, "I walked toward him." Therefore, "toward" may be the more appropriate preposition to use as the shorter word, but "towards" can also work based on the user's preference.
