5 May 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

Do we have a misleading system here? I'm talking about this "weighted vote" process. Guess I'll have to read up on that. Other ratings don't often sway me. But I am, at least, curious about opposing viewpoints. So, after I thoroughly enjoyed They Call It Murder, I investigated its low "weighted" evaluation because it's so different from my own. Imagine my astonishment when I saw NO overall bad comments, and more than five times as many positive votes as negative ones. Now that I've further trivialized opinions, here's mine: I highly regard this film; consider that many familiar faces herein perform quite capably; and am thankful for the four-minute concluding summation because the script was too intelligent for me, as is often the case when I try to follow a thoughtful mystery. Henceforth, "weighted" numbers will have even less significance to me; and, perhaps, they shouldn't be too terribly meaningful to you, either.
