New Rating System

Hello blog readers. As I stated in a blog a few days ago, I have been thinking of updating my rating system. The whole 3-out-of-5 thing was just way overdone.

I am a frequent reader of Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob as well as Blog Cabins and both of them have come up with a ratings system that includes movie photos and/or movie quotes. So, with permission, I started thinking of quotes from films that could explain my thoughts on a movie.

And I have come up with a new ratings system of seven.

Here's how it works: every time I review a movie I will insert one of these photos at the conclusion of the review letting you know what I felt about the film.

The quotes and pictures have been added to the right side of my page, with a brief explanation. The movie picked doesn't mean I love or loathe it - for instance Wayne's World is not my favorite movie in the world, nor is 10 Things I Hate About You my least favorite, it's just that a quote in that particular film fit in that particular spot.

I hope that this makes sense to everyone - well everyone that cares. There is a possibility of changing the quote/photo if another comes to mind that might fit better - but for now, this is a good start I believe.

Thanks - c ya tomorrow.


  1. haha, I love the new ratings (especially the Willy Wonka one). But the Matthew McConaughey one made me chuckle.

  2. Yes, those are indeed some fine choices. Though, really, the most fun comes from choosing them. I had a tough time doing so.

    Okay, by my count, we're up to four sites that have this type of rating system. I'm sure someone out there had it before me (going with the "there are no original ideas anymore" theme), but I never saw it. Soon, EVERYONE will be using this method - yes!
