Spigen Classic C1 review: Who knew an iPhone X case could look this cool?

Spigen Classic C1
View Product
The Good

Colors are true to that of the iMac G3 • Two-layer build provides protection from drops

The Bad

Quite difficult to take the case off • Inconsistent matte vs glossy design

The Bottom Line

The Spigen Classic C1 will stoke all your Apple nostalgia feelings in just the right way. But considering the relatively high price and how difficult it is to remove, the retro look is the only reason to get this case.

‘Gotti’ has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes and the reviews are priceless


The reviews are in for the mobster movie Gotti which profiles the life of notorious crime boss John Gotti. Following the laundry list of excellent mob movies this should be an easy win, but Gotti‘s reviews are apparently the only entertaining thing about it.

The movie currently has a 0 percent Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s right, zero.

Tomatometer ratings are based on “the percentage of professional critic reviews that are positive for a given film or television show,” provided there are at least five reviews. Personally, I didn’t even know a 0 was possible.
