....and I have no idea why such a tiny concept gets a 'high' score.
Speaking of IMDB scores, the Daddario Netflix film, WHEN WE FIRST MET,
is up to a 6.8, though with only 112 votes. That is a far cry from the
10,000+ votes that THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX got in its first day...and
the 6.8 puts it out of Ian's sweet spot for now.
