I’ve been thinking of this for a while and wanting to move away from my usual ratings system, especially where I score movies from 1 to 5, often throwing in that awkward 2.5 /5 or 3.5 /5 score for movies that don’t easy fit in. So going forward I’ll be using simply a word for each part of the scale as follows:
Essential – this replaces the much coveted 5/5
Recommended– replaces 3.5 /5 – 4/5
Good – replaces 3/5
Poor – replaces 2/5 – 2.5/5
Avoid – replaces 1/5
I’ve updated the reviews I’ve posted already this year and this new system will remain for the foreseeable future.
Not a bad idea. I’ve avoided scores/ratings on my blog for years but I can certainly understand the appeal. I wonder how many ‘Essential”s you’ll be awarding this year?
Any bring myself to go with no rating system. However I’m happy with this for the time being.
