Comparing sentiments of the same topic from two different Reddit threads

Reddit has a huge variety of subreddits with different opinions and different topics. I wanted a way to observe/quantify differences between community reactions to the same content. To make this, I compare opinions from two different communities on Marvel's Iron Fist, a netflix show with mixed reviews; one community is Marvel fans, the other a general tv audience.
