We spend a lot of time looking at the readership stats on our polls, ratings, and reviews. Last night I noticed that our ratings for the film Tag has a pretty wide movie spread, as shown in our polling statistics.[pullquote]What this means: a lot of people had a low opinion of Tag going in, and had a hugely high opinion of it afterward. Tag is polling WELL above expectations.[/pullquote]. Only Adrift and Overboard (both boat movies, hmmmm) had a wider spread.
Notice how fans originally anticipated the movie would rate in at the C- range (7.1), but walked out with a B- (8.1). People in my demographic (women around 50) gave it a high B (8.6). My vote was an A- (9.1). I see hundreds of movies each year, and this one pleasantly surprised me. I tend to be harsher on films than most. Tag was simply fun, and a nice respite from more serious world concerns.
Take a look:
We broke it down further, using ranges from recent films that RunPee fans voted on:
Only a few movies really disappointed fans, namely Hereditary (by a huge margin), Show Dogs (no surprise) and Action Point. And people got as much out of Avenger’s Infinity War as they expected (also, not a surprise – that film knocked it out of the Marvel park).
Anyway, here is the ‘spread’ table. Pluses means better than expected. Films in red mean worse than expected:
|Life of the Party||+0.57|
What does this all mean? It means people are loving Tag way more than expected. The film is kind of delightful. Maybe go see it. 🙂
