how i will rate movies from now on:
I find that rating movies with a number can be tough sometimes. I just think this experience/feeling-based system will be a more accurate way to judge a movie, rather than assigning it a solid number. Also, with the advent of my MoviePass/AMC A-List/Sinemia, as well as my trying to be less pessimistic as possible, I've reworded some of the categories!
So here's the categories I will 'file' movies under:
This movie is absolutely excellent and one I will want to watch all the time. I probably found this movie very fun, meaningful, etc.
Very good, but just short of excellence.
(Category previously named "Going In My Blu-Ray Collection")
An alright time, nothing special or recommendation worthy about the movie. Expectations probably killed the experience, or there were one or two small fixes short of being a good time. (Category previously named “Why Did I Watch This?”)
I had a good time in the theater and liked the film overall, but didn't find anything too transcendent/extraordinary.
(Category previously named "Didn't Waste
Pretty self-explanatory. (Category previously known as “I Hate My Life”)
