I've read a lot recently about the recency bias of movie ratings, IMDB ratings in particular. So I decided to try & visualize the phenomenon to see just how strong the bias actually is. This analysis covers nearly 60,000 titles, and includes all US, english language feature films, with user ratings between 1 and 10.

Credit to dojutsu-user for his awesome script - worked like a charm.
Note that the colorbars represent number of movies for a given rating in that year.
