Special effects have changed the way movies are watched since it came out. the issue is is that some of the older movies are being based off of today's standards. i wander if there is a way to only judge the movie based off of that time period like some box's to check. because i am sure that there are a few movies that were really awesome that are now being criticized by someone who wasnt even born to see the revolution of why the movie is the way it is.

I got it!!! how about beside the user name there is a sort of thing to say what decade you were born in. such as 60's child 70's child 80's child 90's child. then you sort of have an idea of what to expect based off of previous experiences. then maybe if you could break the rating down based on those votes as well. but that would be on another link.

You already get a breakdown of films by age of voters:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076759/r...

I'm not sure a lot of users would be up for making that public (as people might judge you differently if you were very young or old) and, as this would have to be optional and opt-in, I'd imagine there might not be enough uptake of this to make it worth staff's while implementing this.

However, now you've made the suggestion people can +1 it, so staff will be able to see how popular it is.

it is sort of the point to get judged off of your age here. more experience plus more knowledge of this sort of genre makes it easier for me to then base what i would watch based of of other user ratings.
