Since everyone seems to have a different style or opinion on how a film should be rated, I thought I would give an explanation to what each rating means when I give it to a film.
0% - This would rank as possibly the worst film I have ever seen. Only will I go so low if I cannot find a single redeeming quality in the film. Everything about it is terrible.
10% - Basically I hate everything about the film, but maybe one or two qualities that are ok or decent that save the film from being 0.
20% - Maybe a good performance, or some good quality about the film keeps it from being a total disaster.
30% - A terrible film, but a really good quality (good acting overall, good special effect, etc.) makes it not all bad. However, not to be recommended to anyone.
40% - Some good qualities and some bad, but the bad are either more important, or more often and ultimately mess this film up.
50% - Dead even. The good and the bad in this film are about the same. Some may like it, some may not, but the film is ultimately very forgettable.
60% - An enjoyable film that I like. Good outweighs the bad, but the film could be better. Only recommendable based on a person's personal taste in films. Usually something like average acting or boring plot keep this from being higher.
70% - A film that I really enjoyed, and could be worth buying. Most aspects of the film are good, but not fantastic or anything. Worth the watch and worth the money.
80% - A great film, for the most part everything about it was good, but maybe everything wasn't excellent. It won't make my favorites list, but it is good no doubt.
90% - An excellent film. It will more than likely find its place somewhere on a favorite list (depending on the size of the list) maybe a flaw or two, but not big ones.
100% - A masterpiece. One of my all time favorties, and will find a place on any of my favorites list. No real flaws visible by a regular viewing.
