Hmm, true. But doesn’t using two different variables relating to general public make it harder to tell? While the choices themselves, i.e. the data set, are ones that critics will lean to, you don’t get a sense of how critics opinions on those films differ from the audiences. To do that you’d need to plot Metacritic scores against IMBD scores and RT scores against box office.
Or I think anyways. My stats skills are roughly equivalent to yours but with less aptitude for graphs and excel. So, worse.
