These dudes found a way to measure if movies are getting worse. They based it on polarization – and the mental leap that a polarizing movie was made with a base in mind and is therefore not as good as a less polarizing movie is the jump you have to make to agree. I think it’s an okay assumption, but I also feel like our society is more polarized than it has been in the past. Is it because of narrowcasting – the web-based phenomenon that you only see what you want to see and don’t get broadcasted at? I don’t know, and that’s a topic for more conversation. But if society is more polarized in general, then the leap of faith may not work for this graph.
