Fake ratings for a movie

I don't have any idea if anyone at IMDB will see this but anyway...

I'm here to talk about fake reviews targeting a unreleased movie. And to explain every single part of that, I should talk about the political situation that Brazil is living, but no, I don't have time, patience and knowledge to talk about, so i'll be fast on this (also my english s****).

In a nutshell, a lot of people are propositally rating the film as 1/10 because of divergent political opinion!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Fake ratings for a movie 2.0.

In the last post I forgot to put some crucial infos on it, so here's the part 2

I don't have any idea if anyone at IMDB will see this but anyway...

I'm here to talk about fake reviews targeting a unreleased (on the movie theaters) movie (yeah, the movie was released in a Film Festival in Germany, but here in Brazil, the place where the hating is coming from, the movie will be released just in April 18th). And to explain every single part of that, I should talk about the political situation that Brazil is living, but no, I don't have time, patience and knowledge to talk about it, so i'll be fast on this (also my english s****).

The movie name is Marighella, and, in a nutshell, a lot of people are propositally rating the film as 1/10 because of divergent political opinion!

sorry for 2 same posts, i'm new here :)

This great amount of reviews did not happen because of political differences, it was due to the Brazilians' revolt at seeing a terrorist assassin being exalted in a movie as if it were a hero. It was the revolt of the Brazilians to see the money of the taxpayers being used to manufacture an immoral lie.

Why a respected service like that has deleted the reviews from users about the movie Marighella? The reviews are from legitimate users who have come to give their opinion and discontent about this unethical movie by exalting a terrorist. Is it serious that IMDb is not interested in the true opinion of its users? Are they going to lose credibility like that?

Watch the movie and them you can make the review you like. IMDB is about opinions about the movie itself as a form of art. Not about people who thinks a movie should not exists and why they think so. There're movies about the human side of Hitler. It's a piece of fiction. Based on real people. Watch the movie and then make a review. Until then, there's rules about making reviews about a movie you did not see yet. That's not permitted. And rules about organized people massively voting down a movie nobody has seen yet.

IMDB taken an action to preserve their credibility. The rating is about the crafting. About the performances. About screenplay, narrative. Is not about what you think about the subject or whatever. Those reviews will not come back. You and your friends were violating the rules.

Jorge: While IMDb does weight the user ratings (see https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/faq-for-imdb-ratings/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV#), they are still going to include the ratings that people submit for Marighella. The same situation held when thousands of 1/10 votes were received for such films as Gunday and The Promise, also for political reasons.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled There are groups on Facebook manipulating reviews for the movie Marighella.

A group that supports the Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, is encouraging people to give fake reviews. This movie is not available in Brazil, so there is no much people that have been watching the movie.

Porque não eram avaliações reais sobre o filme. Era a ação coordenada de pessoas que não assistiram ao filme tentando baixar a nota artificialmente. Então eles removeram, como já aconteceu antes em ações parecidas de turbas ignorantes tentando influenciar as notas dos filmes.

For the non-portuguese readers like most of us (thanks to deepl.com):

Because they weren't real evaluations of the film. It was the coordinated action of people who didn't watch the film trying to lower the score artificially. So they removed it, as has happened before in similar actions of ignorant mobs trying to influence the grades of the films.

Hi!  Will, Official Rep

3 or 4 times the normal quantity of Users registered February 17 2019
Perhaps they posted many Reviews and Ratings for other titles
Too late to look for that now ??

ACT_1: I don't think they did this. They are not very bright and were just doing whatever they were told to do by social media right-wing groups.

Will: At https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/faq-for-imdb-ratings/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV#, it says, "... although we accept and consider all votes received by* users, not all votes have the same impact (or ‘weight’) on the final rating." However, I now see that all the previously submitted votes for Marighella have been deleted, leaving the film with no rating. (Or, at least, no more than 4 rating votes have been kept, since a film needs 5 votes to display a rating.)

That seems to contradict the policy of accepting and considering all votes received from users.

*Note: That should probably say "received from" instead of "received by".

IMDb is censoring bad reviews. This movie is terrible and tells only lies. 
My first review was erased by IMDb, and not only mine, but everyone's!

IMDB is a serious site.  i am a member because I believe in the seriousness of the site.  I do use it as a reference to watch movies.  I do not think IMDB should exercise censorship on the comments just because someone claims the comments are politically biased.  For instance: if somebody did a movie about Adolf Hitler depicting him through a black actor and claiming that Hitler was a "great leader"  (as former President Lula once did in an interview to Playboy magazine), OF COURSE there would be lots of criticism about this hypothetical movie.  Likewise, IMDB must reflect comments, not censor them.  Otherwise, instead of criticizing the terrorist Marighella and a bad movie about him, we would be criticizing IMDB.

When The Mechanism (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6873658/) received a lot of 1 ratings, IMDB did not want to get involved. Now when the role reversed, IMDB deleted all comments and ratings.

Hi, Jonas Rabinovitch. I mean you no offense, but I wonder if what you claim misrepresents the criteria by which and the way IMDb actually filters out comments registered users intend to publish.

Don’t throw your credit as a most important website about movies in the trash for this. The South America also is AMERICA, and also is FREE!

Na realidade, não é necessário assistir ao filme para classificá-lo. Vindo de uma esquerda falida e de uma meia-boca socialista, o que se pode esperar?

You are wrong. You have to watch the movie to rate it. That's a basic information.
