How was the data collected?

The reviews and ratings were collected using a list of film page urls and the tool. Up to 30 reviews were collected for each film.

Normalization information

The reviews were originally labeled with a rating from 0.5 to 5.0 with a step of 0.5 between each rating. Ratings less than or equal to 2 are labeled as negative and ratings greater than or equal to 4 are labeled as positive. Only reviews with less than 2000 characters are included in the dataset.

Dataset Structure

Splits, features, and labels

The Allociné dataset has 3 splits: train, validation, and test. The splits contain disjoint sets of movies. The following table contains the number of reviews in each split and the percentage of positive and negative reviews. Dataset Split | Number of Instances in Split | Percent Negative Reviews | Percent Positive Reviews --------------|------------------------------|--------------------------|------------------------- Train | 160,000 | 49.6% | 50.4% Validation | 20,000 | 51.0% | 49.0% Test | 20,000 | 52.0% | 48.0%

Each data instance contains the following features: review and label. In the Hugging Face distribution of the dataset, the label has 2 possible values, 0 and 1, which correspond to negative and positive respectively.

Span indices

No span indices are included in this dataset.

Example ID

The ID is an integer starting from 0. It has no inherent meaning.

Free text description for context (e.g. describe difference between title / selftext / body in Reddit data) and example

For each ID, there is a string for the review and an integer for the label. See the Allociné corpus viewer to explore more examples.

ID Review Label
4 Premier film de la saga Kozure Okami, "Le Sabre de la vengeance" est un très bon film qui mêle drame et action, et qui, en 40 ans, n'a pas pris une ride. 1
5 L'amnésie est un thème en or pour susciter le mystère. Encore faut-il être capable de construire un scénario qui se tienne. Celui-ci est boursouflé et accumule incohérences et invraisemblances. Notons aussi la stupidité du titre français, sans lien avec l'histoire. 0

Suggested metrics / models:

tf-allociné achieves 97.44% accuracy on the test set.
