Is the DC fanboys downvoting this movie EVEN BEFORE THE PREMIERE
Your witch screaming is getting really boring. The film has already had a limited release. Additionally, IMDB has already explained in their Get Satisfaction board, that any private screenings, participates can submit their ratings.
How is a critically acclaimed movie as Black Panther is getting so many ones???
I've explained many times here, you don't know how many of the 1,000 1.0 ratings are actually applied to the weighted average, they do not reveal that formula. Every IMDB member has a "voting value" rating. Someone who uses an account to do nothing but vote all 10's or all 1's has a near zero, or absolute zero submitter rating.
The Godfather has 36,000 1.0 ratings. Alien 79 and Aliens 86 has 4,000 1.0 ratings each. 2001 ASO has 11,000 1.0 ratings. People can be very extreme about their movie tastes. You can find in these very forums people rating a given film a perfect 10 or a lowly 1.
IMDB SYSTEM IS FLAWED.
Then don't go to IMDB.......derp. Perhaps you should stick with rotten tomatoes since it currently has over 80 critics rating it 8.4 rating for BP. That should silence your ranting for awhile.....that is, until a movie comes along you love and RT has given it a lowly rating while IMDB rates it highly. Then you will have to switch back to appease your ranting. Perhaps install a revolving door between the two sites....
