Hmm, I've been considering making one of my own. How does yours work?

We're still ironing out a lot of the details, and I haven't pinned down the right balance yet to make it work properly with every film, so I'll just say it currently uses two axis' focusing on two seperate philosophical aspects of film as an artform, and a wonky version of the distance formula.

It still needs a lot of work though.

So this wouldn't be able to work with something like Casino and Gone Fishin', I guess.

Sounds cool, mine's probably going to be a straightforward point system by genre. Like comedies will have stuff like joke quota, quotables, rewatchability, classic scenes, etc... while a drama will have emotional impact, characters, mood, setting, etc.

Actually the whole point of my system was to be able to adequately, and objectively rate both good and bad films in their own merits. Because some movies are just so bad they're good. Right?

Exactly.

That's what the favorites/greatest thing is all about.

Schindler's List may be a greater movie objectively than Wrath of Khan, but I'm gonna watch Khan 4-5 times more than Schindler's, that's for sure.

Good, hope that all pans out.

The distance formula.

Can't wait to take film ratings into the THIRD dimension after I neail this one. Imagine the badassery.

But seriously, thing won't get truly accurate until film critic enters the 5th dimension.

I'm lucky there's an arts theatre near to where I live otherwise I wouldn't see a lot of the films that I get to. It was the one place in the whole city that was showing Pan's Labyrinth and God knows how many others, so hurray!

Zodiac wasn't that good. It was in desperate need of better editing. The movie ran too long and the pace suffered for it.

Not saying it wasn't decent...but a 9.5? No. Just say no.

^Are you serious? Surely you're not judging a year of film based solely on summer blockbuster, committee driven, franchise-extending cash cows? I'm not saying the merits of 2007 should be judged on just the po-faced, worthy Oscar-baiting films either, but there's more to films than just cheap, CGI-enhanced thrills.
