I was on Net flix picking out movies in the Sci Fi department and came
across The Brothers Grimm. I was reading the reviews and it seemed
most people gave it one or two stars yet Net Flix had it at 3 stars.
So I added up all of the reviews just to see what was going on. Here
is what I found.
138 people gave it one star.
110 gave it two stars
73 gave it three stars
47 gave it 4 stars
23 gave it 5 stars.
Which equals 391
Here is where I am a little lost. What do you do next to get the
average rating? divide by 5?
Somehow with numbers like those above shouldn't it be more around 2
stars? Is Net Flix being honest with their math or are they just
trying to push dud movies on us.
Actually, they're trying to push movies on duds.
Why would they care? Hell, in their perfect world people would pay the
monthly fee and not rent anything :)
