Who is buying all the fake reviews on imdb?

Recommended Posts

Full disclosure; sometimes I read the reviews of GoT on www.imdb.com becuase I'm bitter of how it ended. And I find it pretty laughable it still gets ratings like these:

Or - and here is a crazy idea - someone likes something you don't like and expresses its opinion. *Mindblown*

So calling it a ”great movie” seems legit to you I take it?

I do notice most of these have no reviews other than that, and many are new accounts whose reviews seem to have been the only thing they've done with their account.

I don't fully understand the hows and whys of these sorts of things, but they may not be as straightforward as someone just "buying" reviews.

All that said, one of them (the ivan one) has several reviews over a long period of time  and is a much older account than the others so I suspect that's legit.

Companies/influencers/creatives/politicians buys followers, views and likes all the time. (google "buying followers" and weep for humanity) If you feel like arguing that it might be a clumsy attempt from some small time computerfarm to sell their product, know I will counter by pointing out that if its unwanted trolls tanking the score credability both HBO and imdb would be pretty eager to get rid of it - which hasn't happened.

I would understand if HBO bought them around the great downfall to try to keep their good score and not lose money and face. But its soon to be two years since it ended and there's a new one in the making so I doubt they'd stoop so low now. Especially considering the low quality, it's completely glaring, why would they risk getting caught with their pants down for a dead horse?

It has been said on here that one of the D's have a big hang-up on the shows imdb-score and has been very invested it's reviews on there, so one can't help but wonder. <_<

Also, yeah, the Ivan dude didn't really work for my point, I don't know why he got on my shame-list.

If it's a question of bots... Bots are cheap. Like, dirt cheap. 

 

However, as a die hard book follower (AWOIAF, PRINCESS AND THE QUEEN AND ALL DUNK AND EGG FAN) I don't see the problems most do until s08 ep 05/6. Even then there are good notes, but this general trend of s6/7 were slaw isn't my bag at all. I thought they were reaching a bit, but it's also like people were just ignoring the negatives of season 2/3.

 

Those reviews are either poor bots drumming up something or rather with a bad line of code, english isn't first language or just plain don't know how to use a computer people. An opinion is an opinion. I had event watches of the last few episodes and the last one was the only one where I openly questioned wtf did anyone like any of how this turned out.
