This list attempts to find the most polarizing movies, meaning the movies with a significant number of both favorites AND dislikes. It uses the formula abs(favorites - dislikes) / (checks + 50) after first filtering anything with less than 50 favorites and/or dislikes (that is dislikes + favorites < 50).

I played around with several variations before settling on this formula but it is far from perfect. Please leave a suggestion in the comments if you think it can be improved. I will attempt to keep this list up to date.
