My Ratings System:
1 Star = One Watch Experience
Can be bad/mediocre or momentarily engaging—either way it becomes tiresome upon repeated viewings.
2 Stars = Engaging (Not Essential)
Aptly displays the craft of its genre yet is not an essential addition to a collection.
3 Stars = Repeat Viewings
Good genre piece that rewards repeated viewings.
4 Stars = Classic
Bona fide classic essential to any true cinephile’s collection.
5 Stars = Masterpiece
The rarest cinematic experience. Universal artistic statement, often poetic and spiritual.
