It’s hard to believe that I’ve been writing movie reviews for 2 years now. It’s even harder to believe that I’ve only managed to write a review for only 60 films. To “celebrate,” I’ve put together this handy-dandy chart to show you the each film’s score, the year it came out, and if it won or was nominated for any academy awards.
So here it is: Bryce’s Review Scorecard.
In case you’ve ever wondered what those scores actually mean to me, then I’ll tell you. The number is a gauge that I use to show how much I recommend this film to you. Specifically:
- 9’s and above are few and far between; these are must-sees
- 8 – 8.9’s are great movies that I highly recommend
- 7 – 7.9’s are decent; they won’t waste your time or money
- 6 – 6.9’s ride the fence between “alright” and “meh.” It’s appropriate that my average score is 6.4, as I would say that this group of films make up the majority of popular cinema. They aren’t good enough for me to recommend to anyone who isn’t a fan of the genre, director, franchise, etc.
- 5 – 5.9’s are mediocre films that I would consider a waste of time and money. They’re the kings of garbage.
- 4 – 4.9’s are films that I am usually pretty mad that I saw, but are usually popular enough for me to have to contend with the masses.
- anything below a 4 should straight-up not exist.
