A little number game. What have I done?
.
On April 9, 2023 I pulled data from IMDb ( www.imdb.com/interfaces/ ). Now the data does not all fit in a csv or excel file. That's why I decided to use Power Pivot to filter out the film types (movie, short, tv-MiniSeries, tv-Movie) that are most important to me. So I had a list of over 90,000 films. (I only included films with at least 250 votes and a rating of 2.5).
.
Basically, my focus is on the type "movie".
.
Therefore, in the first step of my specification, I assigned malus points (penalty points, minus points) for "shorts", "tv-MiniSeries" and "tv-Movies" as well as for the genres "Adult" and "Documentary". In the case of the "shorts", the penalty points even increased the shorter the film is. In my opinion, I only accept a film that is longer than 5 minutes.
.
In the second step, I gave plus and minus points depending on data ("most favorite movies" and "most official lists") on ICM ( www.icheckmovies.com/ ).
.
In the third step, I then also added a weighting by year to account for the significant distortion of timeliness in online vote counts. This weight was "votes x (1+((1977 minus the release year of the movie)/100)". I copied this great idea (adapted a bit at my discretion) from the Letterboxd user Prof. Ratigan.
.
I chose the year 1977 because from 1977 the VHS format for video recorders became more and more established and the home video recorder market became established as a result.
.
In the fourth step, I used the IMDb formula* for the "weighted rating" to adjust the film rating I had already specified.
.
*weighted rating (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C
where:
R = my specified average for the movie (mean) = (Rating)
v = my specified number of votes for the movie = (votes)
m = minimum votes required to be listed in the Top 10,000 (currently 999)
C = the minimum vote across the whole report (currently 4.9)
.
And now the following is the result, have fun with it.
