The success rate of a movie is largely dependent on people's perception and opinions, through word-of-mouth. In today's digital world, word-of-mouth is prevalent in the form of reviews found online. The opening day and the first few weeks following a movie's release is crucial, and hence production houses place a lot of importance on moviegoers’ opinions, and develop trailers and publicity strategies to sway public opinion. Taking this into account, the paper proposes the use of a review system for predicting the success rate of a movie. Moviegoers’ opinions of a movie before and after the release of the movie will be determined using sentiment analysis. A custom dictionary will be developed comprising words commonly used in movie reviews, which will be mapped to their corresponding weight-age in order to score reviews on a scale of one to five, and accordingly classify the success rate of movies.
Keywords- Movie Reviews; Sentiment Analysis; Classification.
