We at ScreenHub wade through a lot of statistics so you don’t have to. Often the work is depressing as we hunt for the positive directions our sector needs. A UK company called Uswitch sent us a statistics release which is actually fun and clicks neatly into our sense of humour. Along the way it provides a link to a fascinating database, called latest Netflix data with thousands of attributes which geeks and producers will pore over for hours, entry by entry.
It covers categories like actors, genres, tag lines, culture, language, release dates and production companies. In one handy place, we can find Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, awards and box office. It covers heaps of languages, and the cultures where they are rated. So, we can see where Korean films on Netflix, for instance, are showing up around the world and where they rate most highly.
