I felt it would probably be a good idea to formally explain my grading system.
For new movie reviews, I use a “Scholastic grade” system, A-F. Probably because I still carry resentments from my school days and now I want to give someone ELSE a D. LOL.
Anyways, here it is:
A++ All Time Classic
A+ Great movie. If you told me it was your favorite movie ever, I wouldn’t crack wise.
A Excellent movie. Potential Movie of the Year for me.
A- Excellent movie, belongs in the movie of the year discussion, but I can already feel it wouldn’t take the crown.
B+ Very Enjoyable movie. There was some sort of problem with it that kept me from giving it an A range grade though.
B Enjoyable movie.
B- Enjoyable movie, but I have to qualify my opinion for multiple reasons.
C+ Average movie. There’s probably one or two decent scenes in it that make me feel its slightly notable.
C An average movie. Being called an “Average Movie” is not a compliment. Forgettable.
C- I’m really tempted to give this movie a bad grade. Multiple flaws.
D A bad movie. And not in a good way. Boring or stupid. Stay away.
F The worst of the worst. VERY Bad. Painful to sit through. Avoid at all costs.
