Paddington 2 has overtaken Citizen Kane as ‘the greatest film of all time’ – 9+ rave reviews

Over on the film-rating site, Rotten Tomatoes, Orson Welles’ 1941 masterpiece, Citizen Kane, has long enjoyed a rare 100 per cent approval score, and is widely considered to be the greatest film of all time.

Unfortunately for its legacy, a bad review from the Chicago Tribune has recently resurfaced, reducing the film’s rating to – shock, horror – 99 per cent.

‘its sacrifice of simplicity to eccentricity robs it of distinction and general entertainment value.’

Luckily, a new ‘greatest of all time’ was waiting in the wings.

The news didn’t go down too well in some quarters.

But the triumph of Paddington 2 was met with jubilation elsewhere.

It seemed a little odd that the bad review should suddenly resurface – but there might be an explanation.

We’re happy to report that success hasn’t gone to Paddington’s head.

As thoughtful as ever.
