Vudu promised its 1080p a la carte streaming movie service would be coming to the LG BD390 Blu-ray player by the end of the (read: last) month, making LG's connected box just about the best on the market. Well, it's a little late, but it's arrived in the US, and it brings with it a few new goodies: namely, Rotten Tomatoes integration.
In case you've never heard of RT, it's kind of the be-all, end-all of movie review sites, which compiles dozens of reviews per movie to come up with a sort of meta-score, which, more times than not, is in the right ballpark. Vudu's movie selection interface is now littered with tomatoes: tomatoes with the combined "Tomatometer" score at each film's selection screen, tomatoes with individual review excerpts in each film's selection screen, tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes tomatoes.
Both upgrades will just sorta happen: LG BD390 users should expect an upgrade prompt any time now, and all Vudu users should keep an eye out for the new ratings system. [Vudu]
