Since its debut way back in 1999, "Toy Story 2" has sat atop the Tomatometer, enjoying a 100 percent fresh rating from an impressive collection of 163 reviews.

We're giddy with excitement for the release of the big-hearted indie flick Lady Bird, starring Saoirse Ronan.

While both films - along with many others - have a ideal 100% rating, Disney Pixar's Toy Story 2 received only 163 fresh reviews, while Lady Bird is sitting on 170 as of writing.

Only two other films in the website's history have managed to achieve a 100 per cent positive score with over 100 reviews - 2008 documentary Man on Wire, and Isabelle Huppert's drama Things to Come previous year (16). It is a masterpiece in the coming-of-age genre, and deserves every award it is bound to win.

She continued, "That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true".

Alongside this the bank has modelled a 33% decline in house prices and a quick rise in interest rates to 4%. This scenario also includes a collapse in Chinese commercial real estate of more than 40%.

Even Armond White, the known contrarian who destroyed Toy Story 3′s ideal score couldn't help but applaud Lady Bird, admitting that "the film's conflicts are surprisingly touching".

From first time director Greta Gerwig, Lady Bird has just smashed a huge record on movie review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. Thank you to everyone who has seen the film and has written about it so thoughtfully.

Gerwig added that the cast and crew are "using the tomato emoji more than [they] ever thought possible".

Saoirse has started off awards season on the right foot having bagged the Best Actress award for her role at the IFP Gotham Awards on Monday night.
