A flawed attempt at ranking films. Without a doubt, I don’t always rate according to this system, and when it comes to films that I want to give 5 stars I practically ignore it. Note, this is not a competitive ranking system. (Work in progress)
0 stars= I can’t objectively rank the movie. That doesn’t mean I didn’t like the movie
2 stars= Mediocre. Ironically, the worst rating, because a 1 star can be so bad it is good.
3 stars= Good, but flawed.
.Didn’t achieve its full potential
.Great idea, poor execution.
.Poor idea, great execution.
.Inconsistent with its greatest strengths
.Does not quite achieve its own intentions.
.Possibly doesn’t make its intentions clear
3.5 stars= 3 star films that I was tempted to call great, but there were faults too major to ignore. (see my list)
4 stars= Great movie, any flaws are overshadowed by its greatness.
.Achieved its full potential
.Great idea, great execution
.Consistent with its greatest strengths .
.It achieved its own intentions.
4.5 stars= 4 star films that I wanted to give my biased 5 stars, but didn’t. My appreciation of them is edging near the blindingly biased love of my 5 stars. (See my list)
5 stars= those great movies that are above 4 stars for purely personal aesthetics. When I give a film 5 stars, I’m giving it 4 stars with my head, 5 stars with my heart. This ranking should not be allowed for commercial criticism because it is too biased.
