Top 250 list

Hello- I'm doing a a project looking at the success of films relating to their budget. I'm planning to use imdb top 250 list however I noticed that you said films often spike in rating and position on the list when they come out. Is there a good time period to exclude from the data in order to be more accurate? Is there a usual period in which the ratings stabilise? 

Many Thanks~

Hi again @miednight 

We cannot provide an exact time frame as to when the film's rating will stabilize after the popularity of its release, however, I would suggest at least a few months after the wide release.

@Elliot​ Thank you for your suggestion, I was thinking of doing a year cut off for all so this is good to know
