Hollywood sure to produce more short films and film noir  AUG 27 2002

According to this analysis of movie ratings (with neat graphs!), short films, film noir, and documentaries have the highest ratings on IMDB. At the bottom of the barrel are horror, sci-fi, action, and thillers. With minor exceptions, film ratings appear to be inversely proportional to box office earnings.
