First and foremost, it should be noted that this rating system is popularised be a man called Dave Meltzer, a reviewer who is the main writer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter of whom I admire. He has a rating system that I had not seen before which I liked and will be using for my reviews.
It will be a star rating system where:
Five stars is the best
Minus five stars is the worst
Zero stars will be referred to as a DUD
An average movie is about a two-star rating.
A positive review rating is anything greater than or equal to three stars
It will get exponentially harder for a movie to get on the extreme ends of the star rating spectrum to keep it’s integrity.
