Does anyone else factor in a user's review curve when deciding whether or not to follow them on Letterboxd or am I just being weird

My pet theory is, across eras and genres, movie quality follows standard normal distribution, which is just a fancy and unnecessarily oblique way of saying "most movies are okay"

the peak of my Letterboxd is at 4 because I don't watch shitty movies 😎


I can guarantee that most of the movies that I have unrated, which are mostly movie I haven't seen in 15-25 years, are between 2 and 3

a lot of direct-to-VHS animated shovelware and dull studio comedies
