GDT on the Tomatometer

I was wondering today how GDT's movies stacked up on the infamous "Tomatometer" at

The "Tomatometer", as many of you already know, is how the website "rates" movies - it basically compiles reviews from all over the internet and gives an "overall" rating in the form of a simple mathematical calculation - "% of Positive Reviews". So, if a movie has 5 positive reviews out of 10, it gets a 50% rating on the "Tomatometer". The great thing about the 'Mater Meter (ha! I just thought of that) is that it can include hundreds of reviews which can give it an good overall critical review.

So, now that I'm done explaining something that you already know, let's go to the numbers:

Cronos: 88%
Reviews Counted: 33
Fresh: 29
Average Rating: 7.3/10

Mimic: 54%
Reviews Counted: 26
Fresh: 14
Average Rating: 6.3/10

The Devil's Backbone: 92%
Reviews Counted: 97
Fresh: 89
Average Rating: 7.5/10

Blade 2: 56%
Reviews Counted: 127
Fresh: 71
Average Rating: 5.9/10

Hellboy: 79%
Reviews Counted: 182
Fresh: 144
Average Rating: 6.7/10

Pan's Labyrinth: 96%
Reviews Counted: 184
Fresh: 176
Average Rating: 8.6/10

The 96% approval for Pan's Labyrinth is particularly impressive. That ranked it as the #7 best movie of 2006 on The Devil's Backbone was #22 in 2001.
