Artificially Inflated Rating
16 January 2010 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Someone has, with allies, been 'stuffing the ballot box' for films needing votes to qualify for a rating. I suspect this is one - and not the first - especially in view of the lukewarm user review. Guardians of this website should check this out.

As I roam about the website I will make note of similar films with preposterous grades which are not substantiated by user reviews or common sense. I look for ratings on Public Domain films. If they were rated so highly, they would not be in Public Domain.

This does a disservice to readers and to the website as well, as IMDb may be the best site of its kind extant.
