After much deliberation, I have decided to revise the rating system for the movies I review slightly.  With just the 5-star system, I feel it has been difficult to accurately quantify my feelings for several films without undercutting them or giving them the benefit of the doubt.  To help alleviate this problem, I have decided to introduce a half star increment to my ratings that will better reflect my true feelings towards a given film.  The new rating system is as follows:


★ 1/2 – VERY BAD

★ ★ – BAD

★ ★ 1/2 – SUB PAR

★ ★ ★ – DECENT

★ ★ ★ 1/2 – GOOD

★ ★ ★ ★ – VERY GOOD

★ ★ ★ ★ 1/2 – GREAT

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ – AMAZING

If, by chance, you ever want to go back and review the rating system for clarification on a particular review, I have added this rating system as a page.  It is viewable as one of my main headers now.  All previous films will be slightly revised to this scale by the end of this evening and all films following will be reviewed with the half star additions on the 5-star scale.

It’s been two months since I started this blog and I have been really happy with all the positive feedback it has received!  Thank you for your continued patronage and, as always, I love to hear your opinions!
