Poll: Rating ''good-bad'' movies

There are GOOD films, and there are BAD films... and then, there are GOOD-BAD films. Those movies are still pretty terrible, but they can be watched over and over again, because they are so hilarious and entertaining in their badness.

But that poses a problem - how do you rate them on IMDb?

Note: each entry has a picture from The Room (2003), but the question applies to ANY good-bad film that you can think of

    Tommy Wiseau

    I usually give it a rating of 10

    If a bad film is endlessly rewatchable and entertaining, then why not awarding it with the highest rating (even ironically)?

    Tommy Wiseau in The Room (2003)

    I usually give it a rating of 9

    A bad film is endlessly rewatchable and entertaining, and therefore deserves a high rating, but giving it a 10/10 is a bit too much.

    Tommy Wiseau in The Room (2003)

    I usually give it a rating of 5 or 6

    Rating it 1-2 is too low for such entertainment, but rating it 9-10 is probably insane. So, it's a middle-of-the-road solution.

    Tommy Wiseau in The Room (2003)

    I usually give it a rating of 2

    The rating of 1 is reserved for those movies which are just plain terrible. So, a ''good-bad'' film gets an extra point because of its entertainment value.

    Tommy Wiseau in The Room (2003)

    I usually give it a rating of 1

    An awesomely good-bad film is just the opposite of an awesomely good film, and therefore, deserves a rating opposite of 10. Furthermore, a film with terrible rating is more likely to be seen by many people (and become a cult film), than the film which is just regularly bad.

    Greg Sestero, Philip Haldiman, Tommy Wiseau, and Juliette Danielle in The Room (2003)

    I usually give it a rating of 3 or 4

    A good-bad film is still pretty bad, but not terrible enough to warrant a 1 or 2.

    Philip Haldiman, Tommy Wiseau, and Greg Ellery in The Room (2003)

    I usually give it a rating of 7 or 8

    A good-bad film is still pretty watchable, but not great enough to warrant a 9 or 10.
