5 Factors in Rating a Movie

I’ve been trying to figure out an easy way to rate movies after I see them. How to quickly convey to anyone reading my review what I thought about the movie and if they would enjoy it as well. I will fine-tune this system as I go along.

    2. .5 – Sometimes I was engaged, sometimes I wanted to turn it off.
    3. 1 – I was entertained thoroughly.
  2. Story – Does it make sense? Was it interesting?
    1. 0 – Confusing, it’s a mess.  I probably didn’t finish if it was this bad. Doesn’t make logical sense.
