Amit from TotallyMoney.com recently reached out to me saying he had a neat post he thought the audience for Sci-Fi & Scary would enjoy. Now, with a website name like TotallyMoney, I was a bit nervous, but I decided to check it out, and I really liked what I saw. While it’s not right up our alley, it is one of those things that just feels worth sharing. (One of those things I’d love to learn to make up when I had the time and patience to do so!)

Lots of interesting information in there when you look at it for a few moments. I was surprised to find that the closest critics came to agreeing on any movies with the general public were the first Ice Age movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, and, surprisingly, Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones and Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and … Nightmare on Elm Street IV: The Dream Master?? Okay, yes, I’ll give you that it shows a solid middling score for both audience and critics on The Dream Master, but I’m still shocked, regardless!

When you click on the infographic, you get taken to the full page, and then it really gets neat. Instead of looking through the full list, you can pick which film franchises you want to compare against each other. I did that a few different ways. Sorting just for horror made me laugh because you can’t help but ask “Why critics gotta hate on horror so much?” Sorting for science fiction made it clear to me that there’s been a lot more Star Trek movies than I thought!  That, and that I think I’m actually inclined to agree with the critics about the Transformers series.

Anyways, was there anything you found interesting about the infographic? Talk with me about it below, and again, thanks to Amit from TotallyMoney for a fascinating compilation of information.
