    @johnnyblazetb82 - Idk, for some reason i remeber being bored as hell by movies that year. And yes The Dark Knight & Iron Man are good, but two movies doesn't really make up for a total bad movie summer.

    "Horrible Bosses" FYI: In the first day of release the film grossed $9.9 million, giving it the #2 opening-gross for an original R-rated comedy in Summer 2011, behind Bad Teacher ($12.2 million).

    Horrible Bosses" was a surprising comedy that dose rival "Bridesmaids".!

    Looks like DOTM crashed a bit in the box office

    @thedude-abides I think it's because MW does it the same way as RottenTomatoes, meaning all that number counts is the percentage of users who gave the film a positive review. Everyone could have rated it 3/5, and since that's considered positive it would get a 100% score. RT at least has the average score in a separate place, which is usually a far more accurate indication of what people thought of the movie. MW has this too, but you have to go to the actual page for the movie if you want to see it (It's 4.4/5 on MW, compared to 2.4/5 on RT, so the public consensus clearly skews higher than its critical counterpart.)

    @monkeyiron are we talking about ROTF? or DOTM. Movies usually don't broadcast on cable TV 3 years after theatrical release.

    @sean I predicted that Dark of the Moon would've made 47-55 million in its second week. Turns out, I was right ;)

    @kingbrady - Transformers 3 was ok, thats the problem. Transformers should be nothing but Epic, let James Cameron do a Transformers movie "Nuff Said".

    @Number1Wolverine couldnt be more right with this statement..........Transformers was OK, way too many problems than good things with TF3 but its a blockbuster meant to entertain and it did an ok job...HP7 pt 2 should shine brightest next week

    Okay, so, can anyone answer this for me? I think the reason the MW ratings are so high is because the system doesn't calculate user ratings properly. MW operates on the 5-star ratings system, therefore every half star should account for 10% give or take, correct?

    After rating some of the older movies I've seen in which I've been the only person on MW to have rated, I've noticed some irregularities in the MW score. After giving one film a 3.0 star rating, the MW score came back at 100%. Same thing with a 3.5 or a 4.0. Does anyone know anything about this?
