We put another year behind us so now it’s time to review the results of the Peeple’s Poll. In case you’re not familiar, the RunPee app has a unique poll that asks users what their expectation is for a movie before it starts, then when the movie ends users can add their final/post-movie rating.

Surprise of the Year

If you had asked me before the year began what the most popular movie would be I wouldn’t have guessed Top Gun: Maverick in a million years. But wow, what a crowd-pleaser it was! In fact, going back to 2018 when the Peeple’s Poll was introduced, Top Gun: Maverick is the 3rd highest-rated movie we’ve ever had. That’s some rare air.

Movie Title Expectation Post Movie
Avengers: Endgame 90.1 92.2
Spider-Man: No Way Home 87.2 92.2
Top Gun: Maverick 83.1 91.7
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 82.5 90.6

Movies That Beat Expectations The Most

I always find this an interesting bit of data: which movies performed best over expectations? I guess I’m going to have to put Where the Crawdads Sing on my watch list, and maybe The Woman King as well. I’m most surprised by Ambulance. That looked like a typical Bruckheimer movie. Well, I guess when you look at how low the expectation was before the movie it’s not all that surprising. An expectation of 67.5 is really, really low. What I really wonder is why would anyone go see a movie that they expect to be a D-grade movie? It’s great that it was better than expected, but still, it’s just a C-grade movie.

Movie Title Expectation Post Movie Difference
Where the Crawdads Sing 72.0 83.3 11.3
Bullet Train 71.4 81.0 9.6
The Woman King 77.6 86.8 9.2
Ambulance 67.5 76.6 9.1
Dog 70.7 79.7 9.0
Violent Night 69.6 78.3 8.8
Elvis 75.6 84.3 8.6
Top Gun: Maverick 83.1 91.7 8.6
Downton Abbey: A New Era 78.5 86.7 8.2

    Interesting comment on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. When I saw it in the cinema I was somewhat underwhelmed and I was probably one of the people marking it down.

    However, a couple of months ago I sat down to have a rewatch with RunPee’s own Jill. She too had been disappointed when she first saw it and, I think, we were going to try and see what had gone wrong. It turned out that we both actually quite enjoyed it!

    Maybe what it needs is to be able to chat and point out things while you’re watching it; that is something that Jilly excels at! It’s also better when you can pause it, say “did you see that?”, rewind, rewatch, and check whether you’d just found an Easter Egg.

    I don’t think Jilly and I would be very popular in a crowded cinema!

    I rewatched it last week myself. I agree, it was enjoyable. But I think it was right about in line with expectations. I think the problem is that Doctor Strange, and all MCU movies in general, have high expectations going in.
