so many options
Well I think a 0-100 scale would be too complicated for what we're trying accomplish here which is an informal "does it suck or not" type of rating. I think mine is reasonable, but I'm just trying to get everyone away from giving every film they like a 9/10.
0-4 it sucks, 5-7 it's good, 8-10 its one of the best movies ever.
Unless we want to go to a 0-100 scale, but then the vast majority of films would never even come close to a 90. I'm a firm believer that almost every movie is a suckfest. I mean, "Crash" won best picture last year and I don't know if it didn't deserve it, but I do know it wasn't as good a many films that came before it.
We should keep it simple, but reasonable. There's nothing inherently wrong with a mediocre film. But the vast majority of films shouldn't get an 8 or 9 out of 10.
