Rewatch & Review

by AbunaiGaijin | created - 3 months ago | updated - 20 hours ago | Public

This is a list of films I have already watched and added to my Watched Films Protocol or other "watched" lists. The purpose of this list is to rid my IMDb Watchlist of all movies I have already viewed at least once in my life.

my IMDb rating system: 1* regret watching it (no aesthetic or cultural value) 2* waste of time 3* hardly entertaining (a drag to watch) 4* not recommendable 5* ok (not worth watching twice) 6* entertaining (rather ephemeral, good for movie nights) 7* good (worth watching several times) 8* inspiring (extremely entertaining, mind-blowing) 9* visually & thematically overwhelming (goes to my heart) 10* Masterpiece (all time favorite, stays in my heart) If I'm undecided on my vote I'll always choose the lower rating.

DISCLAIMER: I acknowledge that rating any artistic expression will always be inherently subjective. This is why I do not try to be objective in an academic sense and rather embrace the subjectivity of my evaluation.
