IMDB user reviews for The Emoji Movie

  • Doesn't Need an Answer
If you look at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4877122/reviews, you will notice that many of the user reviews who voted the movie a 10/10 have been upvoted to the extreme, while many of the user reviews who rated the movie a 1/10 have been downvoted to the extreme.

In fact, here is what the user review section for The Emoji Movie looked like in the past: http://web.archive.org/web/20170802135158/http://www.imdb.com:80/title/tt4877122/reviews

I have no idea if the upvoting of the positive reviews and downvoting of the negative reviews are part of some kind of internet trolling, but something is fishy on IMDB, and I do not want to sit here and debate about it.

The exact same thing happened to Sonic Mania Adventures over the last couple of days as well. Unfortunately it's an internet series rather than a major film, so the meddling has done a lot more damage to the helpfulness of the reviews and to the overall rating as well.

That's unfortunate! I love "Sonic Mania Adventures"... Most of the reviews I see are quite awful with basic grammar mistakes, typing errors and no points whatsoever... Also, most of them are written from one-off accounts...

Yes, that's the one - two days ago, 10 reviews were posted that each managed to receive around 75 "helpful" votes within 24 hours, despite the page's comparatively low profile up to that point, and all the positive reviews have received the same number of "unhelpful" votes.

If it's possible to see the dates of the star ratings for the main series, presumably the vast majority of the low scores have all been rated on (or within a day or two of) the 20th July.

Sonic Mania Adventures
This show seems to have been review bombed.
Apparently some "fans" are upset by it.
It's frankly obvious that someone's made many accounts.
