Most overrated films

These are the films that have the biggest negative difference between the rating I projected and the rating I gave it.

The projected rating isn't necessarily all that meaningful, it's a product of the IMDb rating and the Rotten Tomatoes percentage. However the average difference is surprisingly only 0.305 (my rating - projection), and the list is actually pretty reflective of what I consider overrated.

Ratings by country

My ratings averaged by country. Many films count in more than one country, I go by the IMDb entry. I've simplified a few things, e.g. I've forgone distinguishing the various divisions of Germany. I've also omitted countries from which I've only seen a single film.

Medium

For lack of better term I'm calling this medium -- it's really a blend of location, medium, should be obvious what it means. Note that TV is rarely or never live, normally recorded using MythTV.
