Weighted average is not 'mode'
23 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Guys, weighted average (imbd rating) is just one of statistical values. It usually tells you more about results than just 'average', but I consider 'mode' as the most informative statistical value. For Morozko, mode is 10 points! This could be a slight satisfaction for you :)

Please note that we in Czech Republic used to hate Russian's products and thoughts just because it was Russians, our occupant during communism era. Nevertheless, people in my country really have liked this movie since 60s, and even my father borned in 1952 and had been living most of his productive age in opposition to Russia likes this movie and enjoys watching it even today, remembering this nice fairy tale from childhood.
