What's your average rating on IMDB (if you rate films)? I have seen 1154 films and my average rating is 7.8.

6.1, but that's only films I have on my hard drives (1194). It would be lower if I had rated everything I've seen.

I don't use imdb but my average rating on RYM (x2 to make it a 10 point scale) is 4.78/10. I remember like 2 years ago when it was at 4.39/10.

Can't you find it anywhere on IMDB? You can see your ratings analysis like distribution and ratingaverages for genres and years, but I can't find the total average.

Calculated in Excel: 6,87

6.26 total average. Highest rated year is 1963 with 7.15. All years since 2000 are in the bottom half of all years with the highest of those years being 2008 with a 6.17. 2003 is my lowest rated year with an average of 5.00. Highest rated genre is Mystery 6.83. Lowest is Action 4.46. Didn't we have this thread somewhere else...? Oh well. I do tend to rate films higher based on production value so all those recent films I've been watching have been getting 4-6's even though I enjoyed them about 1-3 (unless it's a film with content that is just completely inane, Argo, Jurassic Park, etc.)

2.78/5 on RYM (that would be 5.56/10 on IMDb). I have not rated the hundreds of worthless Blockbusters from Hollywood I saw several years ago though.

It's actually lower on IMDB. Since you can't rate 0, rating 1 is the lowest. So you gave an average of 1,78 on a scale of 4 at RYM. On IMDB, it's a scale of 9 (1 to 10), so your average on IMDB would be 1,78/4 * 9 + 1 = 5,005

Didn't know that. In that case it is:
2,28/4,5 * 9 + 1 = 5,56

My average is 6.22 on 6334 ratings. The IMDB average of those movies is 7.07, so I guess I'm slightly tougher than the average IMDB user.

Where do you get all these stats, Excel sheets? I can see some stats on my IMDb user page (at least they implemented that) and could manually calculate my average rating, but not the average IMDb rating of my rated movies. (My visual chart looks awful by the way, with 7s making up nearly 30% of the votes. :ph43r: )

That's how I did it. Export ratings and let Excel calculate it.

80 movies - 6,5125.

Though now I avoid watching movies now that I'd rate 1 or 2.

Formerly I'd finish any movie I downloaded but I'm not doing that anymore.

For example I simply removed Pelle the Conqueror from my hard drive after 20 or so minutes cause no way I was gonna rate it above 3.

Out of 80 movies my lowest rating is 4 for Goodfellas and that's the only 4.

Here's my distrib btw:
1: 272 (1%)
2: 626 (3%)
3: 1246 (6%)
4: 2062 (10%)
5: 3418 (16%)

7: 4770 (22%)
8: 3324 (16%)
9: 940 (4%)
10: 185 (1%)

the biggest year is 2010 with rather curiously 999 titles

I imported about two and a half years ago and have since went H.A.M. on some T.V. series/episode voting when I realized I broke the IMDb top 1000.

IMDb breaks down my votes by genre, but strangely television is not a genre. 1400 is probably a fair estimate for television series, episodes and video games that I've rated on IMDb that haven't been imported. I actually use ICM as the reference for my IMDb voting now: I'll check something as I watch it, then when I'm keeping my personal spreadsheet records, I enter the IMDb vote as I go down my ICM checklist.

First of all, I'll admit this gets pretty wacky:

I imagine, like the majority of IMDb voters as represented by average scores, for many years I was handing out 7s much more freely than I do today. I've had my IMDb account since 1998, but didn't keep up with regular voting until I started big at ICM, went through my personal records to vote everything at IMDb, and did one big import at the beginning of 2011. Today, I try to keep the average film at a 5.

When I speak of "personal records", I am referring to a master spreadsheet of all features and shorts that I have seen that I have ranked by year, and then ranked overall in one insane chart. I split this chart into tenths, and went line by line through every title I had seen with IMDb voting. So, while it may not be entirely fair (like grading on a curve isn't), the "bottom tenth" of movies I have ranked got a one had it not already been voted for. Then I imported the whole thing to ICM.

So this is how the process plays itself out: on Sunday I watched The Prisoner of Shark Island. Within my 1936 chart, I liked it more than Thru the Mirror and less than Mr Deeds Goes To Town. That places it at about 218 in the 1930s, and 2382 overall. Falling within the 1716-2573 block of ~8900 on the master list, it scores an 8.

Not an exact science, but I can live with it.

I didn't rate every checks I've on ICM (only half of them) but for now, my average rating on IMDB is:

1/10: 12
2/10: 34
3/10: 54
4/10: 106
5/10: 107
6/10: 193
7/10: 195
8/10: 146
9/10: 51
10/10: 19

So, my average rating is 6.02/10 but I didn't rate all the awful movies I watched :whistling:

Simple question: How do you remember every TV episode you saw? I really want to try rating them but I'm afraid to not remember them very well. If you have some advice, it would be great, thanks :)

I'll start with my favorite shows, like Seinfeld and The Simpsons. I won't bother with kids shows and episodes I hardly remember even though I know I've seen them. I'll use the same philosophy I use checking films on ICM.

I've done guite some TV episodes as well long after I watched them. Sometimes I do it from memory, sometimes I watch a fragment on youtube. Mostly 'gut feeling' is good enough to rate it. Ratings are very subjective and often change after second viewing, so I'll settle for gut feeling.

If I can't remember the episode at all, I don't rate it.

In all likelihood I'll only do my favorite shows. It would be nice to have shows like The Simpsons, Doctor Who, Seinfeld, Sopranos rated and organized. I've always loved the idea of imdb just never had the courage to undertake the rating game.

Thanks to both of you. :cheers: Eventually I will rate only the TV episodes I remember well and then I will rate after (re)watching for the others.
