Time to give guidelines on how to rate a show/movie.
Hey IMDB, its time that you give a basic guideline on how people rate shows/movies. There are WAY too many people that will go straight to either a 10 or a 1. Its should be pretty rare that a movie is a 1 and virtually impossible for a movie to rate a 10. I shouldn't have to browse 30 reviews to see if they are too many 10's or 1's.
When giving a review for a show, a person should start off at a middle 5 them move up or down from there given how well the show progressed. When people give a 1 rating and they watched a movie for 5 minutes, that hurts the entire rating system as much as simply giving a 10.
Additionally, there should be a way to show/say how you watched. People will rate a movie differently if you PAID to see it in a theater at $20 a person, paid $2 to rent it, paid $15/mo for HBO etc or watched it for FREE. If I paid $60 (for 2) to watch a movie, I would most likely be more harsh rating as if I saw it for FREE on say Tubi.
Just my food for thought.... FYI - this insight is what you pay your executives $100k+ a year to come up with. If you want tens of thousands of dollars worth of great advice, get in touch. JCinHB
