It’s no secret that it’s much harder to find a good movie today than it was before. This is due to the fact that the film industry today produces thousands of films every year. That’s dozens of times more than in the ’90s and hundreds of times more than in the ’50s.
Certainly the huge quantity affects the quality. More precisely, its average quality of the movies. That is why many people today say that today’s films are incomparably worse than the films made in the 60s, 70s, not mind the “golden age” of cinema.
However, can we say that this statement is fair? To understand when and in what years movies were made better we should do research. For this purpose, I uploaded data from 25 million user ratings from 162,500 users of almost 60,000 movies made for all time. Then, using Python and Pandas, I processed this data and noticed many interesting patterns.
