A new voice in the critical conversation.

Who decides what’s good? When it comes to media, the answer is usually: men. The overwhelming majority of critics published and aggregated by major outlets are male. That means the scores you see on sites like Rotten Tomatoes come from mostly male perspectives. CherryPicks is a new voice in the critical conversation. We’ll give you reviews from exclusively female critics in film, tv, music and more. This is where you can find out what women like, and what they don’t.
