LAMBScores: With Great Power Comes Drug Trafficking and Woolly Mammoths

by Nick Powell · August 3, 2012 · LAMBscores · 7 Comments

I think I am getting a lot more comfortable with my power after taking over the LAMBScores. I received some nice feedback from last week’s post so I decided not to change much on the new format. The only additon I included was certain quotes from reviews to give a little more depth to the scores. This week features The Amazing Spider-ManSavagesIce Age: Continental Drift, and Katy Perry: Part of Me. As always, feel free to post your own scores in the LAMBScores Forum, but please, read the rules beforehand. 

Rotten Tomatoes: 3.65 (73%)

    Is it just me or doesn’t it look like most LAMBscores median numbers end up between RT and IMDB. Interesting…

  3. How come my score is not with Spider-Man?

    Sorry to nag, but I was wondering if you would consider putting the LAMBScore “front and center”, to draw focus to it. Currently, there are a lot of numbers to look at, but what I am really concerned with is the LAMBScore. Also, I think would also be nicer visually to put the overall LAMB Score using those lambs graphics.

    Just a suggestion.

    Keep up the good work.
