Topic: How do you rate movies?
I've been thinking lately about the different ways people rate movies. And it's quite an interesting subject, because two people aren't likely to come up with the same answer.
For me, I only give a couple of movies a year a 10/10. Inside Out was the most recent movie I watched which I awarded it to, and I only ever give to movies which I consider outstanding. Most movies I really love I will usually give an 8/10 or above. If I give a movie a 7, it means that I really liked it, but maybe felt that it had quite a few flaws. I gave Frozen a 7, as I really enjoyed it, but I also think that it has quite weak writing and isn't as good as a lot of people make it out to be.
6 is when I think that a movie is good, but nothing much else. Iron Man 2 is a 6/10 for me - for a superhero movie, it was considerably boring and slow pace and wasn't all that satisfying. Overall I think its good. The 3rd act I really enjoyed and the movie was the introduction of the fantastic Marvel films that were to follow.
5 is a movie which I consider okay. Cars for me is a 5/10, nothing good, but not really bad. 4 and below are films that I dislike. I don't think many films deserve a 1/10, as that seems like the film has failed on every single level (Foodfight, for example).
But then there are the movies that are so bad they're good. Where do they belong? That is a difficult question, because they don't deserve to be a 1/10 as they are at least unintentionally entertaining, but then perhaps they don't deserve a high score either, because after all, they are still bad.
How do you rate movies? I'd be interested to hear your opinions. Also, when it comes to so bad they're good movies, how do you rate those?
