[[http://www.imdb.com The Internet Movie Database]], a website that records every movie ever released, along with television series and episodes, video games, actors, voice actors, major characters, and so on and so forth. Each movie has its own forums, and these forums are often plagued by {{Troll}}s and {{Sockpuppet}}s -- particularly the "Politics" and "Soapbox" subforums, which are troll-magnets. You'll more than likely find every variant of FanDumb and HateDumb ever named on these forums and [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement to put it simply]] you'll either be highly amused at their antics or lose your faith in humanity.

Users can give 1-10 grades to movies. After the death of HeathLedger, many users [[PraisingShowsYouDontWatch pre-emptively gave]] ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' a perfect 10 rating, while at the same time giving perennial high rankers such as ''Film/TheGodfather'' a rating of 1. Prior to the release of ''The Twilight Saga: New Moon'' the more avid of the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' FanDumb gave mass ratings of 10 to the film [[PraisingShowsYouDontWatch before it even came to theaters]], luckily /b/ was there to even it out with a healthy dose of 1s without even seeing it. [=IMDb=]'s averaging algorithm is designed to compensate for this kind of behaviour to an extent. (This doesn't prevent [[https://fi.getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/oogieloves_has_fake_voters some gaming of the system]])

Oh, and to remind everyone, we are ''not'' trying to emulate [=IMDb=].
