Informal Regression Analysis of Increasingly Bad Movies

Published by patrick honner on

I found this attempt to quantify the decline in quality of M. Night Shyamalan’s movies very amusing:

Using the rotten tomatoes rankings is a very interesting idea.  I wonder what other kinds of analyses could incorporate that data.

Very interesting. Personally, I mostly agree with the Rotten Tomato ratings for The Sixth Sense, The Village and Unbreakable. I haven’t seen the others. Maybe, as one of the comments about the graph suggested, this is just the start of a quadratic regression and we can expect a resurgence of the popularity of his movies.
