10-Point Rating System
When I decided to study deeper into film, part of that process involved watching more movies, particularly movies that I otherwise wouldn't watch. When I thought about it more, I thought I could write reviews/recaps/summaries of the movies that I watch.
This opened the door to a dilemma. If I was going to review movies from genres that I may or may not like, how could I judge them fairly and objectively?
This is why I created my own 10-point rating system. It's a simple system based on five yes-or-no questions:
Is the story Original?
Does the ending make sense to the story?
Does the story/script make sense, all things considered?
Do the characters make sense, all things considered?
Was I entertained?
A yes earns 2 points. A no earns 1 or 0 points, depending on the reason for the no. The score is usually mentioned in the review but also at the bottom of the page.
