2011 Movies

The Movies That I Might Check Out

10/A+ – Masterpiece. I love this film. Perfect cast, perfect story. Everything just fits and works out wonderfully (The Lord of the Rings)

9/A/A-/ - Excellent. There is almost nothing wrong with the film; Solid all around, acting is top-notch; it just lacks that 100% of enjoyment of a 10 star movie

8/B+/B - Great. A good, solid film; there is originality or a unique twist; I may have noticed some flaws that affected my enjoyment of it, but nothing major

7/B-/ - Good. Nothing mind-blowing; worth watching once; some tiny flaw stopped this film from being a top notch; it could have been better but I definitely had a good time

6/C+ - OK. Might watch again under the right circumstances; some good ideas, maybe very good ideas sometimes but they just didn't nailed it; it has a lot a flaws; boring or bad at parts, but had good elements and aspects I appreciated

5/C - Fair/Average. One thing that still peaked my interest; not likely to watch again OR a movie that I watched all the way through and am completely indifferent or undecided how I felt about it; some nice concepts but pretty badly exploited; there's a good chance I didn't finish it

4/C-/ - Poor. Getting bad, but still not to the level of absolute crap; would never watch it again, but I don't entirely regret watching it; not super awful, but not good;

3/D - Why Did I Waste My Life? Definitely not worth watching and could not have been rescued due to some fundamental flaw; Acting or story was horrible, but there was one tiny little bit I may have liked

2/F - Awful. Burn it. Brutal, mind-numbing and borderline unwatchable; Not the worst thing I've ever seen, but close OR complete crap but it did make me laugh (whether for the right reasons or not)

1/F – Dreadful; One of the worst movie I have ever seen; (rare movie rating); mental torture and it shouldn't exist; completely unwatchable
