Userscript: IMDb Decoder Ring

It seems to be a Greasemonkey kind of month. IMDb ratings are fuzzy in the middle, so Tom Moertel made a decoder ring listing what the rating means in terms of the movie's per-genre percentile ranking. Leprechaun 5's 3.2 rating seems bad enough even with an even distribution; in reality, it has a worse rating than 90% of movies in the database.

Anyhow, this userscript puts the data conveniently inline.

Before:

Shrek 3 at IMDb without the script

After:

Shrek 3 at IMDb with the script enabled
