Re: Lowest Rated Movies You Rate 10/10

There is only ten movies i gave a 10/10 and the five that have the lowest average rating are...

-Open Range (2003) - 7.5/10 average (55,628 votes)
-Lord of War (2005) - 7.6/10 average (254,269 votes)
-Road to Perdition (2002) - 7.7/10 average (206,154 votes)
-Training Day (2001) - 7.7/10 average (316,510 votes)
-Gran Torino (2008) - 8.2/10 average (582,942 votes)

NOTE: Gran Torino is in the Top 250 but the other four are not.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

while we are on the topic ill say here is the lowest rated movie for me for each of the following scores...

10/10 = Open Range (2003) - 7.5/10 average
9/10 = The American (2010) - 6.3/10 average
8/10 = S1m0ne (2002)/A Man Apart (2003) - 6.1/10 average
7/10 = Showgirls (1995) - 4.6/10 average

NOTE: there is only six movies with a 5.9/10 or less average that i gave a 7/10 or higher. all of which score a 7.


but there are a lot of great movies which are not enough high rated for Top 250


Yes, in fact... there is only 26 movies out of the 201 movies i consider favorites (i.e. everything i scored a 7 or higher (which is everything in the "My Favorites" link in my signature below)) that are in the Top 250. the rest are NOT in the Top 250. so while the Top 250 does have some great movies in there the vast majority of my favorite movies are NOT in the Top 250.

so in other words... only 12.9% of my favorite movies ARE in the Top 250 which means that 87.1% of my favorite movies are NOT in the Top 250.

p.s. i just noticed IMDB has a 'Top Rated English Movies' (it's a Top 250 of English movies only) which is different from 'Top Rated Movies' which is the typical IMDb Top 250. with that said, currently it says i have seen 133/250 on the English ONLY Top 250 but with the regular Top 250 i have seen 124/250.

NOTE: to be clear... i ultimately judge movies based on how much they interest me overall (i.e. basically how interesting/entertainment/enjoyable they are to watch) and the further they get away from that the lower the rating. hence, there is no difference for me between 'best' or 'favorite' or whatever other words you want to use as it's all the same to me.

Re: Lowest Rated Movies You Rate 10/10

I suspect the OP was referring to a thread where the topic was "Your Top 5" and everyone made cliche lists and I shook things up a bit by making lists of both the top and bottom rated movies I'd given 10 to. Interesting to see that many of you have only given 10s to high rated films for example the OP has a lowest rated film of 7.5. Then again I'm more generous with 10s than most. 41 of my 110 perfect scores have been for films <7.5. Here are my 18 under 7.0. A lot of them are films that critics have been more generous than IMDb users towards though.

The Scarecrow 5.6 (Rare film from my home country NZ)
Bruno 5.8 (Did better than this with critics)
Rock of Ages 5.9
Die Another Day 6.1 (Skewed by being first Bond I saw)
Wolf 6.2
Death Race 2000 6.2 (An interesting case of a highly praised low budget black comedy which was remade as a big budget serious action film with Jason Statham. The latter struggled critically but is much preferred by IMDb users, I haven't personally seen it)
Paranormal Activity 6.3 (One critics loved)
Anchorman 2 6.3 (Again fairly solid with critics. I only gave the first one a 7)
Get Him to the Greek 6.4 (Quite good with critics)
The Dictator 6.4
The Double 6.5 (Strong critically)
Machete 6.7
A United Kingdom 6.7 (Strong with critics. Not yet releasd in US)
1408 6.8
Bridesmaids 6.8 (Critically one of the more popular comedies this decade)
eXistenZ 6.8 (Strong with critics again)
Bulworth 6.8 (Another strong critical choice)
The Quiet Earth 6.8 (From NZ but more known than the one up top)
