New ScreenGeeks Rating Standards
After talking with the other members of the site, we’re going to be making a change with how we review movies at ScreenGeeks.com. We’ve decided that we’ll now be rating films on a 4-point scale instead of a 10-point scale. The reason behind this is that the 10-point scale became too cumbersome. Instead of just telling you, the reader, if I liked a movie or not, I personally found myself trying to justify a single point or even half-point. We’re simplifying things now. Here’s how the points will break down.
4/4 – A great film. This movie will either be on our Top 10 list or at least an honorable mention
3/4 – A good film. A good time was had and it’s well worth your time to check out
2/4 – A mediocre film. The movie wasn’t dreadful, but is probably worth waiting for DVD
1/4 – A bad film. Avoid it unless you want to see a bad movie.
Hopefully, you’ll get more out of our reviews from a rating standpoint. Please let us know what you think of the changes.
