I’m a 5 star rating guy at heart. Anything more than five stars and I get dizzy. Stars out of ten? Out of a hundred? Really? You want to give a film something out of a 100? Like, perhaps a score of 80? Why not 81? Or 79? What factors made you decide one or the other? It’s ridiculous.
Five gets the job done like this:
1 = crap
2 = mediocre
3 = good
4 = excellent
5 = masterpiece
You go higher than five stars and all you’re doing is extending the above system. I think using 100 score rating system gives the illusion that your rating is somehow scientifically solid.
But I’m going to ditch score ratings all-together. Here’s why going forward on my own site all my reviews will lack score ratings. Two reasons:
a) It forces the reader to read the review rather than jump ahead to see the score
b) It provides protection against having your reviews compared with a fine-tooth comb, and being called a hypocrite among other things. i.e – “Dude, you gave Fight Club 5 out of 5, but Zodiac 4? Your taste is suspect!”
