This got me to dig around,and while metacritic isnt the first place Id go searching for movie reviews,its an excellent place to observe critic/audience gap.For example:
The best critic rated movie there,Best kept secret
,has a 100/100 critic rating,but only 6.1/10 user rating(with only 29 users who even bothered to rate it).Meanwhile,Kung pow:enter the fist
has 14/100 critic rating,but 8.8/10 user rating(with 470 users rating it).
Similar can be seen in video games,where Out of the park baseball
has 96/100 critic rating,but only 2.6/10 user rating and Navy seals:weapons of mass destruction
has 18/100 critic rating,yet 8.1/10 user rating.
And music has similar trends appearing as well.Ten freedom summers
got 99/100 from critics,yet only 5.0/10 from users,while Julianas pony:total system failure
has 38/100 from critics,yet 7.8/10 from users.Though,with music,theres a narrower selection.
I couldnt be bothered with tv show,because those lists suck there.
Also,the worst movie there isnt the human centipede 3,which has a user rating of 2.4/10(for now),but its rather 10 rules for sleeping around
which also has 1/100 from critics,but only 1.3/10 from users.
And by the way,I must say how these aggregate ratings suck,because they put something with 100 average from 5 users above something with 99 average from 100 users.
