Concerning those IMDB Reviews...

Someone's take on IMDB... and so it starts... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1815862/board/thread/215092718

How? How are you people seeing this movie.

In three days, the rating has dropped from 7.0 to 6.5. How is this fair? I can understand hating a film if you see it and don't like it, but don't just hate the film "...because!" without even taking the time to watch it and think about it.

The Last Airbender is a bad movie but it was judged as a bad movie after release. But this hasn't been released, at least not on a proper level.

By rating the movie without seeing it, you're making a mockery out of the rating system. This gives weight to people who say all IMDB ratings are phoney and biased. It makes it possible for someone to say "yeah, Lady in the Water has a low IMDB rating, but most people who rated haven't seen it, they just hate Shyamalan."

You think you're spiting the film or the filmmakers by giving it a low rating before it's been released, but you're not. You're just making it possible for people to discredit all IMDB ratings, which negates the point of them even existing.

Judge the film fairly or don't judge it at all.

Last Wednesday, only 82 Americans had rated the movie. That number has since doubled despite the film not being shown in the U.S. According to IMDB, the film was shown in Japan and South Korea, and according to Shyamalan, it's been shown in London and will soon be shown in Paris and Moscow. This explains the non-U.S. votes, which give the film an aggregate rating of 6.9. How can there be such a huge disparity between U.S. and non-U.S. voters? From 49 to 69 out of 100; why are non US users enjoying it, but American users aren't?

The Arithmetic mean is still 7.6. and the Median is 9, but it's clear that the rating is being sabotaged by U.S. trolls, which just proves that IMDB ratings can't be trusted.

It's worse that these low ratings are coming from grown men (30+) who should know better.
