I have been passionate about movies for a long time now, and I started this blog so that I could write about movies and make something constructive out of all of the time I spend watching them. Now instead of just wasting time watching movies, I can waste time writing about them too.
“Why don’t you give scores or grades to your film reviews?”
I have decided to omit this part of the reviews for two reasons:
1. I don’t want to have unnecessary comparisons to vastly different films that hold similar review scores. How is anyone supposed to compare a film like It to Dunkirk or Detroit? Those are completely different films held to completely different standards, so comparing them by a single review score doesn’t accomplish anything.
2. I don’t want to have to deal with adjusting scores based on the score of an existing film. If I give Film A a 90/100, then see Film B two months later and enjoy it even more, am I forced to give it a 95/100? If Film B does not warrant the higher score, then I don’t to give it a higher score simply because I enjoyed it more than Film A.
Ultimately, my goal here is to give what I believe are the strengths and weaknesses of a particular film, and allow the readers to make their own decisions on whether or not they decide to see it.
