IFDB Top 100

Recommendations by Pegbiter (Malmö, Sweden)

An automatically updated list utilizing an IMDb style Bayes estimator to calculate weighted ratings based on all IFDB ratings. Questions and comments can be placed here.

Formula used for weighted ratings:
(r × v + c × m) ÷ (v + m)

Where:
r = average of ratings for the work
v = number of ratings for the work
c = the mean rating on all of IFDB (3.91)
m = minimum amount of ratings required (13)
