*Puts on DC Fanboy hat*
So…Iron Fist gets panned by the critics and then Netflix decides to get rid of their current rating system?
Looks like another glaring example of the Marvel/Disney Illuminati covering up the truth for their own benefit! #bvsWASaGreatFilm!
*Takes off hat* *Burns it*
Though the road to Iron Fist‘s premiere has been bumpy, now that the show has become available for all users it seems to be falling comfortably into the basket of other well-preforming Marvel/Netflix shows.
What is Netflix doing now?
Netflix’s 5-Star rating system has been the go-to tool for users who wanted to get some of their favorites onto the screen of more couch potatoes.
Personally, I use it to give perfect scores to some of the worst movies and shows out there because I like trash (like BvS).
After beta testing their thumb system for about a year to a small portion of new users, they’ve noticed a 200% boost in rating usage.
Todd Yellin, VP of product says:
“Five stars feels very yesterday now.
We’re spending many billions of dollars on the titles we’re producing and licensing, and with these big catalogs, that just adds a challenge.
Bubbling up the stuff people actually want to watch is super important.”
“What’s more powerful: you telling me you would give five stars to the documentary about unrest in the Ukraine; that you’d give three stars to the latest Adam Sandler movie; or that you’d watch the Adam Sandler movie 10 times more frequently?
What you do versus what you say you like are different things.”
First off; nobody is watching those Adam Sandler movies, my man. I like trash, but that’s just torture.
Another change Netflix will be rolling out will be percent matching titles to help you find your next TV Show or Movie soul mate.
It will be private algorithm they will use to determine how likely you will enjoy a certain show or movie based on your viewing habits.
Honestly, mine is probably going consist mostly of alien conspiracy content and anything with Nicholas Cage.
