How much of a movie do people sit through?

Outsourced - Sit through Factor

Outsourced - Sit through Factor

We thought it would be interesting to see how much of a movie people actually get through before they give up. Now while that’s impossible to do with DVDs, it’s quite easy to figure it out for Netflix’s Instant Watch titles. Starting today, for all stream-able titles, FeedFliks will be able so show you just how much of the movie people were able to sit through. You’ll be able to see a ‘Sit through Factor’ right under the ‘Play’ button as shown.

Right now, Outsourced has a 86% factor which I guess means that it’s pretty watchable.  Some other interesting movies:

Good Night, and Good Luck is at 68%

National Treasure: Book of Secrets is at 76%

On the other hand, The Blood of My Brother which Netflix’s synopsis says is “A gripping documentary from filmmaker Andrew Berends…” is at 24%.  Is it possible that the writer of the synopsis was referring to people gripping their remotes as they rushed to find the ‘Pause/Stop’ button?

We’re hoping you’ll find this useful to check before you blow a lot of time on a really bad movie 🙂

    I think you should add this to the dvd listings of titles too. I think it says a lot about a movie!

    This is my first time seeing this post… I’ve neglected looking at my streaming queue on Feedfliks lately, because I’m ashamed of how big it has grown, but this is very awesome.

    One thing though – I wish that on the full “/instant-queue” page, it would be listed beside the star rating, so you could get an easier visual than having to click through to each title.
