This is anecdotal at best but I'm finding that online review systems like IMDB seem to result in a moderate rating. Take a movie which is popular and the mean seems to be around 7.5... Of course I'm willing to get the median is somewhere around 9.5...

There are other biases - for example, in free text, female authors tend to use slightly more positive language than male wrt overall volume and so if this carries through to numeric scoring then filtering by number will bias the reviews to female reviewers.
