How we rate movies
I think that it is impossible to rate movies on an even playing field. Almost every reviewer that I watch uses a numeric scale or a lettered one but they apply it “evenly” to all films which is a mistake in my opinion. How can we compare movies that have very different goals? Not every director sets out to win best picture with every film and there is nothing wrong with that. And what even makes a good movie? There is no consensus as to what a good movie is and who am I to tell someone that their favorite movie is complete dog shit and that they do not know what they are talking about? Maybe we should tier films when we decide to rate them like put artsy films in one tier and blockbusters in a different one.
