5up Mushroom

Looks more like:

1. Movies, regardless of their final score, are generally scored higher before release
2. Movies that have a higher final score tend to have their pre-release score drop less (duh).
3. Probably some regression to the mean happening here besides the interesting psychology/social implications of high pre-release scoring.

The conclusion that the author drew is sound but it's boring given the rest of the article's premise; that all movies are rated higher before release. Of course crappy movies are going to drop more... zzzzz.
