Rating System

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.
