If I could watch movies all the time I would and if it's a good romantic drama or comedy - I'll watch it.
Of course then I wouldn't have time to lay on the beach......
Anyway my ratings are somewhat stingy, occasionally. The only movie I've ever given 5 stars to is Schindler's List. I rate movies based on many aspects not just on how popular it is to everyone else.
Five stars: The ultimate story that captivates you (or in this case: me) with exceptional acting, directing, and intensity.
Four stars: Powerful storyline, action, drama, etc., extraordinary acting and directing.
Three stars: Great story, good acting and directing but on the whole doesn't quite reach the higher levels.
Two & 1/2 stars: I liked some parts and some parts I didn't like but it was okay overall.
Two stars: Not really that good but some parts make it tolerable to watch.
One star: Really pretty bad.
A half star: A pathetic waste of time.
Bittersweet Romance list:
CURRENT THOUGHT: (at the time I wrote this) Not that she didn't deserve to win but, I believe Kate Winslet should've won with the help of a more special role. I don't think that character did her amazing talent justice. Rock on Kate!
Movies or TV mini-series that I really like but are not on Flixter.
I would recommend:
THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF MARY BRYANT: This mini-series was very good. It is based on true events. It is about a young woman who gets caught stealing and is shipped as a convict to Australia to become part of a new British penal colony in 1788. She will do whatever it takes to survive violence, disease & starvation. She meets and falls in love with a fellow prisoner and they risk everything to escape and form a new life. Fabulous cast, great performances and an amazing story filled with action, drama & suspense amidst tragic human sacrifice and triumphant survival. I give it 4 stars.
