“The movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash, we shouldn’t go at all.” – Pauline Kael
All movies will be rated out of 4 stars. Full and 1/2 stars will be most commonly used, but 1/4 stars will also be used on occasion to bridge the gap between rankings.
**** – Outstanding
***1/2 – Very good to excellent
*** – Good to very good
**1/2 – Average to good
** – Poor to low average
*1/2 – Awful to very poor
* – Terrible
0 stars – Awfully terrible, and terribly awful. If there should happen to be a 0 star film, stay away at all costs.
