This is because there is a difference between how IMDB (or another source) lists the actor's name than their credit in a movie. The name after 'as' shows how they were credited in the movie. In the case here, it is because there is a difference in the capitalization between Dane DeHaan and Dane Dehaan.The difference here is relatively minor, they can be ...

I've some experiences in freelancing. I guess this answer is correct because I've seen numerous job postings like this to give positive reviews.

They measure popularity, not importance or quality. Plus, I think Rotten Tomatoes does a better job by ...

Although this answer is late I asked myself the same question just now. I wanted to look at a movie called Alien Armageddon and decided to see what imdb said before I did. Most people gave it a low rating. I was curious about the few persons giving high ratings to a movie that was overall rated very low. I found this strange. So I looked one up and saw the ...

The IMDB rating is highly subjective. The arithmetic used for averages or exclusion of voters for the top 250 are a way to adjust the ratings to misuse or exceptional values. But they work on the elementary data point which is bluntly: How many "stars" do you give this movie? This is not an objective data point in any way. It isn't even explained what this ...
