Summer Movie Trends

Using the fantastic trending tools at Blogpulse I charted the instances of "Spiderman," "Pirates," and "Transformers." This is a super tool for both serious analysis, and my non-quantitative figuring. At a glance we can how much relative "buzz" or "ink" each Summer movie has generated. Each big peak is their respective opening night, while the the little ripples afterword show that most posts are made during the week, with big drop-offs on the weekends.

The Transformers bump in mid-May shows the echo in the blogosphere after the release of a trailer.

A casual glance showed that "Pirates of the Caribbean" generated the most buzz of the three films, even allowing for the higher base reading from other non-movie posts about pirates.

Interesting? To me? Yes.
