The biggest surprise in the IMDB rating came for the highest-grossing movie of 2023, Barbie. While a divisive movie in many aspects, there was no denying that Barbie was an entertaining watch. However, the film lacked a position among the highest-rated movies, receiving only a rating of 7 on IMDB. Barbie grossed $1.4 billion at the box office, and its release alongside Oppenheimer created the ‘Barbenheimer’ cultural phenomenon in theaters.

Other films that surpassed Barbie in the top spots included Emma Stone’s Poor Things, the Paul Giamatti-led film The Holdovers, and Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. Poor Things will be released in theaters on December 8th. However, The Holdovers and Killers of the Flower Moon were disappointing ventures at the box office, despite receiving critical acclaim.
