Fell for fake ratings, and rented stupid movie on Amazon, AFTER WHICH i BEGAN WATCHING IT RISE IN RATINGS FROM A 7.2 TO A 7.5 WITH NEW USERS (WELL, 1-REVIEW USERS using the old account trick) amping it up every single day by at LEAST three 8, 9, 10 star reviews a day and at least thirty 10-star "ratings",  (went from 10,068 reviewers to 11,260 reviewers since I fell for it).  I wrote a review on it like others have, not to fall for the planted reviews and OVERNIGHT, I got thirty down-votes.  

Come on Col Needham.  You built this place.  Look after it so it doesn't become the joke it is on its way to being.

When I look at this title today, it's rating is not near 7.2, not even the arithmetic mean; it's 6.5 (6.7):

That rating is also showing on Amazon Video:
