• 1* – Negligible value, not worth watching.
  • 2* – May have some very positive elements, but flawed enough to result in a overall negative experience.
  • 3* A positive experience. Viewing recommended. Anything rated 3* and above is good and worth watching.
  • 4* Very good, repeatedly rewatchable or some kind of increasingly subjective personal attachment.  Highest rating possible upon first watch.
  • 5* Excellent or significant personal attachment. (Rough ‘All-time Top 10′ or ‘Top 25′ equivalent)
  • Catalogue films are rated as if they were new releases.
  • Ratings are likely to change after further viewings.
