Movie Review Ratings System

Filed under: Movies — Vamshi @ 11:02 pm

I will post movie reviews of selected movies I see in the future. Helps my writing skills to try and construct a concise summary of the movie and a cogent argument for or against the movie. The reviews aren’t likely to be useful to many people, since I don’t watch all that many movies in the theater, generally preferring to watch them on DVD (from Netflix, naturally)

The movie reviewer that I most admire and agree with is Roger Ebert. So I’ll use his rating system which his site’s FAQ sums up as follows:
"Roger Ebert has used a four-star scale since the very beginning. So, the star ratings range from Zero stars (beneath contempt) to Four stars (first-rate)."
