    There are some new symbols in the new UI when a movie description page is displayed. A couple of the symbols are a box of popcorn and a tomato. There are a couple of other symbols that I don't know what they are. The symbols are followed by a percentage number. Does anyone know what these symbols represent?

    Flixster (audience) and Rotten Tomatoes (critics) ratings.

    The percentages are the percent of reviewers that liked the movie.

    I'm not at a DVR right now, but the Tomato would be a reference to Rotten Tomatoes, a movie review site. You might give their site a brief visit. Popcorn may be the same, but another site, and percentages would be tied to their ratings system. Sorry can't be more definitive.
