I know i promised a review of World War Z. I will get to that, today was car shopping and i didn’t that night because i was on a date.
It occurs to me that I don’t have a standard rating system across all movies, i give numbers just on how i’m feeling. i can say 7/10 or 3.5 stars, but what does that mean?
SO i’ve decided i will work on a star rating system AS FOLLOWS:
Each star is its own category, if it’s good or better = 1 star. Eh = .5. Bad = no star in that category.
CATEGORIES: Story (character development too), Acting, Sound (music included), Visual, Was it enjoyable (to me and perhaps anyone i saw it with). The last could also be rated on rewatchability, it’s flexible
here’s that rating system applied to the movies i’ve reviewed:
- Last Samurai: ★★★★★
- Sunshine: ★★★★1/2 (story is flawed, but i still love it)
- Princess Mononoke: ★★★★1/2 (again flawed but love it)
- Transformers 1: ★★★ (half stars in both acting and visual, no star in story)
- Transformers 2: ★ (half visual, half audio)
- Transformers 3: ★★(no story nor acting stars)
- Hunger Games: ★★★1/2 (story and visual effects were weak, kinda enjoyable)
- Amazing Spiderman: ★★1/2 (entirely Eh)
- Premium Rush: ★★★★1/2 (they’re all good except story which wasn’t bad)
- Django Unchained: ★★★★★
- Phantom of the Opera: ★★★1/2 (story and acting were weak)
- Man of Steel: ★★★ (good visuals, audio mostly enjoyable and fair acting, but NO story)
- World War Z: ★★★1/2 (fantastic sound and action, not great effects acting or story)
it’s funny, on just an opinion system some i would have rated higher, like sunshine or mononoke, or some lower like premium rush which i wouldn’t give more than a 4. Guess the new system is keeping me in line and standard. I can live with that.
World War Z to come. I will be seeing Much Ado about Nothing this Monday, i will review that too.
