Rating Guide for Movies (and Short Films)

A 5-star rating system is used.

  • 5 = Perfect (or a personal favourite).
  • 4.5 = Fantastic but not quite there (something small was missing).
  • 4 = Amazing but something big was missing (or a few little things were missing).
  • 3.5 = Good, some flaws but I would highly recommend it.
  • 3 = Okay. It does what it says on the tin and I might still recommend it.
  • 2.5 = Passable, usually below average or just not for me (but in that case, it could potentially be enjoyed by others!)
  • 2 =  Bad, maybe one or two good things about it (if you squint).
  • 1.5 = Terrible, was generally a waste of time.
  • 1 = Awful, I might have even stopped paying attention at certain points.
  • 0.5 = I didn’t even finish the movie.
