GBS Movie Roundup

Below are the movies that I have live-blogged here on this site over the last five years or so. I've rated each movie out of 10, and as you'll see, Blue Chips is really the only decent film of the bunch.

The funny thing is that I've also grabbed the IMDB ratings as well. Typically, I find IMDB's ratings to be a decent and somewhat consistent guage. I ran a movie podcast for years, and we always referenced IMDB's ratings. Usually, a film with a rating of 5 or higher is somewhat decent. (To me, a 5/10 is the level of "I would watch this again.") But here, the IMDB ratings are so wacky, especially when compared to mine.

I can't explain it. But trust me! Aside from Blue Chips, you do not want to watch any of these movies unless you have a special interest of some kind (or some idiots are live-blogging about them during a blogathon or other event).

Here is the GBS movie list so far:

3: The Dale Earnhardt Story (2004) - 3/10 (IMDB = 6.9)
Blue Chips (1994) - 7.5/10 (IMDB = 6.1)
Crackerjack (2013) - 1/10 (IMDB = 6.6)
Driven (2001) - 2.5/10 (IMDB = 4.6)
Fumbleheads (1997) - 1/10 (IMDB = 6.0)
Hockey Mom (2004) - 1/10 (IMDB = 5.2)
Kart Racer (2003) - 2/10 (IMDB = 5.8)
My Dad's a Soccer Mom (2014) - 1/10 (IMDB = 5.4)
Superdome (1978) - 3/10 (IMDB = 2.6)

Wait...Crackerjack gets the SECOND HIGHEST IMDB score out of all of the Blogathon movies...? My mind is blown. How bad were the rest of these?

Answer: apparently, really bad. I wish I could go back in time and live blog all of them with you, Mike.
