Thanks for the analysis, I agree with you.


I posted some comments over at Freakonomics in response to other comments. What I have below is something I tried to post but does not seem to be appearing.

I found out how much each movie had earned at the box office then divided that by the number of votes it had gotten at IMDB. "Snakes" by far had the lowest rate. My guess is that it means that the people who saw it felt very intensely about it or people voted who did not see it. Maybe this does not mean anything, but it seems interesting. Here are the dollar per vote totals

Barnyard $129,386
Ice Age $78,220
Over the Hedge $56,816
Cars $42,329
Step Up $36,369
The Devil Wears Prada $29,416
Click $28,528
Invincible $27,712
Accepted $21,431
Talladega Nights $21,345
Pirates of the Caribbean $19,993
Mission: Impossible $17,127
Da Vinci Code $16,976
World Trade Center $16,970
Idlewild $16,435
Xmen $14,102
Superman Returns $10,113
Beerfest $7,767
Little Miss Sunshine $4,833
Snakes on a Plane $2,149

I used "The Numbers" site to get the dollar amount, as of yesterday. This could be a little bit of a problem since I took the number of votes from today. As soon as "The Numbers" posts data through today, I will do this again. Also, I only used US data for both votes and dollar amounts.

        Brands I love. Brands I probably need to stay away from.
