A couple weeks ago Steve and Mat were asking me what our total review count was at. I just went into the database and crunched some numbers to pull out that information, along with some other stats.
I should note that if you start double-checking me, some of my figures won’t add up. This is because I designed the database to not be very strict. So Mat can rate Hell of the Living Dead as “An Inescapable Abyss out of 10” and Steve can rate Zombie 5: Killing Birds as “negative infinity minus 1 out of 10” – and it’s good for some laughs but I can’t really do math on those reviews. So little things like that will throw off the stats slightly but it’s not like we’re doing brain surgery here, I don’t think it will matter too much.
So, here are some numbers pulled from our reviews database…
We currently have 557 reviews: 453 movie, 43 game, 33 book and 28 music.
Mat leads the pack with 316 reviews, Steve has 101, I have 24, Brady has 12 and Sleepycast co-host Ronin has 9. Carlin also has 9, but the most important contribution he’s made has been this one. Oh, and some guy named Adam has 34. I have no recollection of this dude, but shout-outs to him for contributing back in the day.
Site-wide, the average score of our movie reviews is a 4.4 out of ten. By reviewer, Mat on average gives a movie a 3.7, Steve a 4.9, Brady a 4.5 and I’m more generous with a 6.9 average.
A breakdown of number of movies by score is as follows, with fractional scores rounded down (so a 4.5 review score is reflected in the 4 figure)…
The six 10’s were given by Mat (Predator, Aliens, Robot Monster) and Adam (The Shawshank Redemption, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Shaun of the Dead)
