Forget it jo, it's IMDb-town.

These are genres I could see myself enjoying even if I had to hand out many 4s & 5s. Because it's fun to pay attention to all the tropes and to sort titles into subgenre canons, all the while not getting totally bored because of reasonable runtimes and enough things happening (special effect work, for example). While still acknowledging that some of these aren't great films. On the other hand, if I watched 200 foreign arthouse drama films I have to rate 4/10, I'd probably kill myself.
But yeah, it's another discussion and anything than objective, actually.
idk for me a 4/10 is a 4/10 and I dislike them all (more or less) equally, no matter the genre. But since I'm especially interested in horror films, I guess I would find a 4/10 horror film more interesting because I'm still building my knowledge/appreciation of the genre. If foreign arthouse drama was my thing then I'd probably prefer to watch tons of those.

My average rating for horror films (based on my spreadsheet, so no short films etc) is 5.3, with a bit over 2100 films, so it's definitely not helping my average rating lol. History is the only one that's lower (5.2), but family and musicals are also 5.3.

I calculate my average rating two ways in my spreadsheet:

By title = 6.926008414

By minutes = 7.244578837

And here's my supersexy bell curve from IMDb

That's what happens when you never explore beyond Active Topics. It's like being doomed to hand out 7s into eternity, not knowing how much wild stuff there is out there.
