It’s about damn time an intrepid mind applied analytics to the film industry. Now, once and for all, we can agree which movies are wildly underrated and which are woefully overrated.

His findings are illuminating, but also a little confusing. Like, who enjoyed Stuart Little 2? Who was so unsatisfied with how the first Stuart Little ended that they needed the second installment? And who didn’t love Grandma’s Boy? I don’t want to even conceive of such a person.

Go ahead and dive in to see if your cinematic taste is an outlier.
