The Polarization of Hollywood

February 28th, 2011

By Matthew Lee Anderson

Movies are getting worse, Moki tells us.  And the way they know that is that successful movies are increasingly more polarizing.  The chart is of the top 20 movies from the past 20 years, and the one's that are red people completely disagreed about.

Draw what conclusions you will.  Especially about the evils of polarization and the even greater evils of Twilight.
