How I Rate Movies

Here's a quick little look into how I like to rate movies. I made the technique myself! Use it at your own discretion, I use it all the time :P

After I watch a movie, I'm left thinking one of two things: I either like it, or I don't. Simple enough, right? Well, I have kind of set myself up to be a film critic in the eyes of my friends and family. Therefore, I can't just say "Yep, that's a good movie" or "I hated it". I have to be specific. And THEREFORE I have to remember everything about a movie because I love recommending movies and I really want to give people the best recommendations possible.

So: I created this brief sheet that breaks a movie down into eight categories. They are: Overall Quality, Acting, Directing, Script, Originality, Music, Mise-En-Scene, and Rewatchability. In my opinion, these are the things I look for in a movie so I thought, I guess this is how I will rate movies from now on. I'll give them an average score (percentage) based on these categories. And voila! I created this form. And from that moment on, when people ask me what I think of a movie, I give them a score based on this!

Use it if you'd like or let me know how you like to rate movies. I'm all ears!
