I've had an idea for a new regular feature I'm not seeing on other movie blogs. It's called Chart, and will take a different breakdown each week:

eg Chart: Top 30 Movies Of All Time By Tickets Sold - http://mrob.com/pub/film-video/topadj.html
Chart: Cinema Attendance By County
Chart: Cost Of Popcorn Over The Last Century
Chart: Top Selling DVDs Of All Time
Chart: U.S. Movie Attendance Over The Last 100 Years
Chart: IMDB's Highest User Voted Movies Of All Time
Chart: Highest Grossing Movies By Merchandise Alone

...But it can be almost anything movie related.

It's not as involved as a top 10, it's just finding the chart, with a couple of lines of intro and a couple of paragraphs of commentary at the end.

So if you guys spot anything suitable just drop it in the forum, any time.

I have an idea for two:

Chart: Top Movies Loved by Critics and Hated by Audiences
Chart: Top Movies Loved by Audiences and Hated by Critics

Like so:



Don't know how easy it is to assemble that info though.

Yeah, that's great idea. Got enough for 'Loved by Critics / Hated by Audiences' -

I'll work out the % difference on all the examples and rank them that way. Any more movies we missed?

How did you source those? I can't see an easy way to pull lists of films with user-critic disparity. A few of those are too positive from audiences though. I think if there aren't 60+ critic reviews and less than 50% from audiences it can't count.

Editor magic Wink

Actually I found their '100 best of the year' lists and opened all the titles I guessed audiences might not have liked. Went back as far as 2006 but you can keep going via the dropdown menu:

I agree on the differential principle. Although it might have to be below 60%, which is what RT consider the threshold for good, or we might not find ten examples.

Good spot. Such an average, forgettable movie. Can't believe 78% of the public liked it. Well, I can believe it, but.

Worst Ever Performing Opening Weekends

Fascinating chart showing the worst ever wide openings: http://boxofficemojo.com/alltime/weekends/worstopenings.htm?page=WRSTOPN25&p=.htm

Makes me so sad that Dredd and The Thing (2011) are on this list...
