My rating system is a little different from the generic flixster one, so I'm just going to outline it:
5 stars - Brilliant. Very rarely will a film get 5 stars from me, but even if it does that doesn't mean I love it.
4.5 stars - Excellent, super enjoyable.
4 stars - Great, I highly enjoyed it.
3.5 stars - Very good, enjoyed it quite a lot.
3 stars - Good, I mostly enjoyed it. It just wasn't perfect.
2.5 stars - Only OK.
2 stars - Didn't enjoy it very much.
1.5 stars/1 star - Didn't enjoy it at all.
0.5 stars - I literally can't stand this film. (Often reserved for the American Pie or Scary Movie series).
