Huh. Before the movie is even out, 65 people have voted The Manchurian Candidate a 10, and 19 have voted it a 1, with very few votes for any other number. IMDB's anti-ballot-box-stuffing algorithm has translated this into a 4.7. A quick spin through movies that are actually OUT shows that votes other than 1 and 10 are losing some traction in the IMDB. This is not a representative sample - the other movies in the top 10 box office for last week looked more like this (a more even spread from 6-10, and a big cluster of ones) .

I expected that votes would begin to gravitate more towards ones and tens as the voting feature became more popular, but it looks like we're starting to see malicious attacks ("WTF?! It's rated 1,4? Seldon have I been this surprised. What is the world coming to? A total disaster. Who are these 16 people who are trying to kill this masterpiece?" - although based on his comments, I think he might be referring to the original, but he was clearly looking at the votes for the new one, before it was released, when the majority of the votes where ones) and counterattacks on certain movies.
