The Best Picture Nominees by Current IMDb Ranking

  • The Artist: 8.4
  • Hugo: 8.2
  • The Help: 8.0
  • Midnight in Paris: 7.8
  • Moneyball: 7.7
  • The Descendants: 7.7
  • War Horse: 7.3
  • The Tree of Life: 7.1
  • Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close: 6.4

I'm a bit surprised that “The Help” is that high but I shouldn't be. I'm a bit surprised that “The Tree of Life” is that low but I shouldn't be. I should revisit in a year and see what's changed. Someone remind me. Vinny? Reed?

“The Help”: It's funny cuz it's untrue.

OK, I'll mark my calendar. But beware because Tree of Life is only going to plummet downward. It is not a movie that will be appreciated outside of a theater setting. (Yes, I know almost all movies' IMDb ratings decline over time because the demographics shift, but I imagine that casual viewers will be particularly unkind to Tree of Life, especially if it wins a major Oscar).

No preconceived ideas of what will happen, just a curiosity. To be honest, I don't get IMDb ratings. It's mostly fanboy stuff and yet “12 Angry Men” is No. 6 all time. There's a story there.
