I'm tempted to hijack this thread to describe how bad Iron Fist is but that wouldnt be rude.

Yeah things like this can happen. It's an inevitable outcome of trying to quantize emotional response - there's no 1:1 correspondence between integers and feelings, we have to wing it a bit sometimes. After a few mass re-rankings early on I found it too much of a hassle and stopped letting it bother me.

If you score based upon a variety of factors and don't have a weight system in place that truly represents your preferences of those factors, then that'll happen. It happens to me too, I'm sure, but I don't usually compare more than two movies with the same score when looking at my total rankings. If it's uncommon, it shouldn't really matter in your PSIs and TCIs

Yeah, this happens to me all the time. I used to spend hours fiddling around with my rankings until it "made sense", but I don't bother anymore. It just isn't worth the time, when it'll hardly affect my PSIS anyways. I now only go back and adjust ratings if I actually have reason to see an old film in a new light (e.g I rated The Dark Knight highly because I thought it was the epitome of the superhero genre, only to watch the far superior Iron Fist and realize that that was in fact, the greatest achievement the genre would ever see, and lowered The Dark Knight's score to reflect that

Sure, plenty of movies work like rock/paper/scissors. 2001 > Star Wars > Leprechaun 4 > 2001
