And so, I would like to introduce the new supplemental Cheese Factor rating system in addition to the Z-rating. Both will now be rated on a scale from 0-5 stars and will represent the following qualities of a particular movie:
Z-rating: Represents how much I enjoyed the movie overall.
5 stars = Loved this movie, would watch it ANY time. Even back-to-back without tiring of it, some of my all-time favorite movies. HIGHLY recommended to those with similar tastes.
4 stars = Really liked this movie, would definitely watch it again and recommend it to others. Maybe not my all-time favorites but still very fond of these films.
3 stars = Liked this movie, not great but alright. Also might be films that are more effective than fun to watch. I may reference these films often and probably recommend them for a particular reason.
2 stars = Didn't really like the movie, but might still recommend to others just so I can make references to it.
1 stars = Hated this movie, totally lame but might have a scene or two worth seeing. (Or at least worth mentioning)
0 stars = TERRIBLE movie, avoid at all cost. Not even I think it's worth watching.
And this rating will now be supplemented with a nifty new Cheese Factor rating scale, from 1 to 5 stars, which will be a measure of how cheesy or corny a movie is. (Whether intentional or not) A movie high in cheese, sleaze, silly, outrageous, and over-the-top moments will rate higher on the Cheese Factor.
Movies that have high production values and are very entertaining may receive a high Z-rating and a low Cheese Factor.
i.e. Predators was a super bad ass movie that wasn't cheesy at all. VERY entertaining and HIGHLY recommendedA movie that has a high Z-rating and a high Cheese Factor is fantastic cheese or sleaze cinema.
i.e. Machete was extremely entertaining and was (intentionally) cheesy. This movie also scores high on the sleaze factor.Sometimes a movie will receive a mid-to-low Z-rating but the higher Cheese Factor may help this film be more memorable.
i.e. Havoc was a mediocre film about... okay, so I'm not entirely sure what this film was about... but you get to see the SUPER hot Anne Hathaway's boobies in the film!!! (Z: 2 stars CF: 4 stars)Hopefully, this will help provide a better insight into the films that I review. I will do my best to stay consistent with these scales in hopes that this will only improve the communication of my opinions.
