Your Movie Rating System


#1

I am curious to know how everyone here rates movies.



For me, it goes like this…



1= I hated it! Fuck the person who made this shit up the fucking ass! I’ll NEVER watch this again! I want to kill myself for fucking seeing the shite I just saw. Why am I so stupid to actually finish watching it? What was I expecting???



2= Uh, did I really just watch that? Oh well, there goes an hour and a half or so I’ll never get back.



3= Meh, I’ll prolly forget I ever saw it, but I don’t dispise the filmmaker or the fact I saw it.



4= It was alright. I guess my life isn’t worse for having seen it, but still, I could have been watching Supercop instead.



5= Not bad, not good. Not enough to complain about, so that’s a plus.



6= Ooh! Not bad! I’ll watch this again if it’s on TV!



7= I’m probably going to buy the DVD… When it goes in the $5 bin.



8= I’m totally going to buy the DVD!



9= I’m going to watch this shit again right away, so I can catch the awesomeness! I’m buying it on DVD the day it becomes available!



10= This movie is the closest thing in modern times to Buddha, and I can see myself making a shrine in my house to honour it! Cos it’s that fuckin good.







I normally don’t care about rating movies unless they’re really awesome or really shit, but I’ve been rating every movie I’ve seen on netflix, and I’ve had to come up with specifications.



So…


#2

When I do reviews for friends and for work I usually just use 1, 5 or 10. That means that anything under 5 is pretty the much the same and the film blows. Anything after 5 means that film is good.



1 = total complete beyond blowing shit.



and then…



10 = Brilliant, masterful, sterling, all the above.



It’s just easier than specifying what each number between 1 and 10 means.


#3

Since I started rocking Netflix I’ve really started liking their system. Simple and direct. I always thought when I tried the 1/10 it was too vague and never used it unless I had given the flick in question some thought.


#4

I do a bit of ranking in my head when I see a decent to excellent film. Mostly base it around my all time favourites and my DVD collection, comparing the films, which makes it easier to give or take a point, pretty fairly…



Therefore, I will only have 10 at most films that will get solid 10/10. To me there the most perfect and anything else have to be a little less, therefore cannot score a 10. Maybe 9.5 in some cases.



Anything that would be below 5 I wouldn’t really rate, but rather dismiss just.



But it goes something like this:



5 = Nothing special. Fair. Wouldn’t watch it again.



6 = Average at best. I’d watch it on TV again.



7 = Good stuff. I like it. It’s in my collection.



8 = Very good. I’ll watch this a few and a half times. In fact, where’s the nearest Special Edition?



9 = Bloody brilliant. You’re only getting a 9 cos there’s something that I like a little more and it wouldn’t be fair on him. We’d have to go up to 11 in that case.



10 = Masterpiece, as perfect as I’ll get. Gimme alllll the memorabilia, poster, script, t-shirt, tattoo.

Yeah, the 5 stars on netflix is simpler, but sometimes, I wish they had a 10 point system, because sometimes a film is better than a 3 but not quite a 4, you know what I mean?

3.5? :stuck_out_tongue:



I’d just use the .5 system when it’s out of five then adapt it to the ten system if I need to.



So a 4.5/5 would become a 9/10. 8)


#8

I use the Kinick way, just 5 to 10. I only ever went lower than 5 once.

You obviously haven’t seen the stupid-ass movies I’ve seen. :stuck_out_tongue:[quote=“Kinick”]

Yeah, but netflix only has 5 stars, and you can’t choose a half.

(No argument)



#2-The movie still absolutely sucked. But it had at least one funny moment that saved it…Or some chick got nekkid.



#3-Good intentions, but still completely forgettable.



#4-MEDIOCRE



#5-One half good, the other half disappointing.



#6-Liked it, but could’ve been better.



#7-Oh, I’m definetly watching this again.

8= I’m totally going to buy the DVD![/quote]


(Same)

#9-Damn near an absoulte classic. If there's a flaw, it's minor at best.

#10-Loved every idea, every scene, every performance, every moment. Everything.
