New Ratings System

So I have been trying to get some kind of rating system. I've seen ones of out of 5 or out of 10 ranks, but 5 is too few and 10 is too many and has no middle point. So i am working out of 7. Hey, i was born 7/7 so i'll just run with that theme.



  1. Awful. Just awful. if it is a movie i wished i walked out or turned it off. For a book it better be from the library because i am returning it.
  2. Bad. Why did i bother with this?
  3. Not very good for me at least. I'll give this to things i don't like but could at least see that others might appreciate.
  4. OK. I don't feel like i wasted my time with it but i probably wouldn't read or watch it again. If i own it i wouldn't feel bad if i lent it out and someone didn't return it.
  5. Good. Time well spent.
  6. Great. I will probably talk this up to everyone but it doesn't quite fall into the category of "if you don't like it i am going to be annoyed with you" ;)
  7. Stupendous. I love it. I am buying it if i haven't already and will attempt to foist it on others. If it's a DVD it is going into heavy rotation.
Here's an example of a book and movie for each ranking. I had a hard time limiting the higher ones to just one example!

  1. Jeepers Creepers, Trainspotting (the book).
  2. Da Vinci Code, Book and Movie
  3. Natural Born Killers, The Road
  4. Talledega Nights, The Rest Falls Away
  5. X-Men 3, Poison Study
  6. Cloverfield, Lian Hearn's Otori Series
  7. Pan's Labyrinth, Harry Potter series

so maybe going forward things will be a bit more standardized.

  1. I think it sounds like a fun rating system. I look forward to seeing how you feel it works after you've test drove it for awhile.
