Top100 Movies From DoubanMovie
This is a Data Journalism presented by Siyuan Sun, who is from the Communication University of China. I collected the data from an authoritative movie website named Douban. In this work, some of the interesting issues are discussed.
I picked up the top 100 movies from Douban website. The score is given by movie lovers in China at liberty.
Distribution of the Top100 Movies
From this map, we can easily see that most of the Top 100 movies are from America. Europe and east Asia take up some of the Top 100 movies, while the other parts of the world barely create top-ranking movies.
Now look more closely at data, we can clearly find that 1994 is the golden year for making good movies, as many as 10% of the top 100 movies are made in this single year. However, nearly no good movie is made before1985, according to the viewers in China.
It is not a line-regression relationship between the score of a movie and its comments times. In other words, if scores represent the success of movies and comments times represent the popularity of movies, these two factors seem to have limited relation.

Top100 Movies selected by nation
Is the most productive nation also has the most of high rating movies? Not exactly. While India makes approximately one third of the total movies in the world, there is not a single movie that could be called classic. On the contrary, rather than focus on the numbers of movies, Europe is famous for the quality of movies.

Interestingly, compared with IMDB in America, the scores given in China have some discrepancies. On the one hand, more Chinese movies are included within the top movies; On the other hand, more latest movies are highly appraised.
Therefore, we can see that there is a culture gap between China and America. Both countries are more interested in the movies that reflected their own lifestyle, and maybe American people have a better view of the thorough movie's history!
