  1. Probability distribution of Frozen's final Tomatometer score, assuming ~300 final reviews and random sampling of current reviews (65 in total, 53 fresh). 95% chance that final Tomatometer score is between 72% and 88%.
  2. Well yeah, I think everyone knows that, but I had the impression tribefan was talking about more recently.
  3. For what it's worth, from the time of its release to about February of this year, Moana (in blue) had more google searches in the United States than did Frozen (in yellow). Zootopia (in red) included for comparison purposes.
  4. Yes, oops The new rank of Duck You, Suckers, is....
  5. Just for fun, this list re-orders the top 100 by the average number of points received per list. You can see that some films didn't appear on many lists but were generally very highly placed by those that did, and conversely that there were some films that made the top 100 merely on the strength of appearing on most lists. Of course, there were also many films that were both generally highly placed and appeared on most lists.
  6. I'll do it when I get home from work in a few hours.
  7. A total of 27 lists were submitted - thanks to all! Some other stats:
  8. @Kalo Noticed you submitted a list in the thread but not via PM. I'd still be willing to accept your submission.
  9. @captainwondyful @Eric Addams @ZeeSoh Congrats on becoming mods!
  10. Thirteen lists officially received (by PM) so far. Thanks for the submissions! Another stats update: No film has appeared on more than 11 lists. 8 films have appeared on ten or more lists. 146 films have appeared on only one list. 253 unique films have been listed in total. Ten different films have received a #1 ranking. 41 different films have received a top 5 ranking. 63 different films have received a top 10 ranking.

No need to stress about timezones. If it's still Sunday somewhere you're good to go.
  12. By the evening (my local time) of Sept 29 would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Let's be clear, I still think social media is a lot worse than mainstream media. I also don't think the world is black-and-white. I'll defend the media when it's warranted to do so, and I'll complain when it's warranted to do so. I haven't forgotten and obviously don't agree with the Liberals bringing up that old crap against the Conservatives and I actually happen to have a receipt for that one. First thing I said when the scandal broke:
  14. This is bullshit. I don't even like Justin Trudeau much, for what I think are much more important reasons. But the none of the progressive and liberal people I know - and it's a lot, nearly everyone I know -gave a shit about Scheer's stuff from 2005. It's what he and his party says and does now that matters. I don't know and don't care what bullshit shows up on social media. It's always the most rabid opinions that get the most attention there, not what most people actually think. That's too boring. The really progressive people I know that you would probably call "sjw" don't care about that kind of stuff from 20 years ago, not from anyone. If it's not illegal and wasn't hurting or intending to hurt someone, it doesn't matter if it's that old. Times change, people change. Literally everyone I know from every background and political stripe thinks this kind of stuff is bullshit and needs to stop. If the worst stuff you can find on someone is from ~20 years ago or more, that's practically an endorsement. There are so many more important things to discuss. Want to talk about Trudeau is a hypocrite on the environment? Sure. On his high-minded talk about the rule of law? Sure. On breaking his promise on electoral reform. Definitely. The fact this is the biggest damn story right now is garbage. I know multiple people - Liberal, Conservative, young (my age), old - who said more or less that the media needs to get a life.
  15. It's possible to submit a list much shorter than 100 films (minimum is 10). So maybe the people who excluded Star Wars and Jaws didn't actually imply that there are 100 films from the 70s they have seen that are better.
  16. You are indeed understanding it correctly. There's a reason why I felt compelled to post the stats so early.
  17. Six lists officially received (by PM) so far. Thanks for the submissions! Just for fun, some stats: No film has been present on all six lists. 7 films have been present on five lists. 91 films have appeared on only one list. 154 unique films have been listed in total.
  18. "Valid for US residents with US payment method only." 😢
  19. Nah, it's pretty mainstream now, at least for young people. Nearly all the high school students I tutor have it installed on their phones/computers. Even a couple years ago I'd say it would be a big stretch to say it was for "weirdos" - even fairly casual gamers who never got into Teamspeak picked up Discord.
  20. Yep, that happened at least twice (allegedly) in the teamspeak I admin'd. One time it caused hella drama because the person got caught (allegedly) only when they didn't have their voice mod turned on (allegedly), and only one other person heard it, so the guild actually got split into a "OMG, X is a dude!" camp and the "you guys are so mean X is a girl!" camp. Half the guild actually left over it. To this day I'm still not completely sure what the truth was because I told everyone that it was a guild internal matter (which it was, confined to guild channels only) and I wasn't getting involved. (thank god I didn't have to) The other time it happened it was confirmed, less drama though because it hadn't been going on for long.
  21. Yeah, I've seen that too from my experience with Teamspeak and (to a lesser degree) Discord. Don't think it's entirely out of trying to be liked, I think in voice comms there's at least a bit of social pressure/norms at work.
  22. I'd really like to think that if there were more women in the chat, the boys would behave. But regrettably I have major doubts.
