Reviews: A Note to Readers

Saturday, May 23, 2009 Posted by Chris Tung No comments
I was looking over my reviews, and I realized that I don't have a consistent way of rating my comics, movies, and whatever else I do on here. I pretty much ramble for a few paragraphs, and if you can make it through some of my more coherent parts, I give you some final sentence that sums up my review. But for all your work, you don't get a definitive answer.

I've decided to change that. I've gone back over my reviews and given them all a rating based off of a 5 scale system. And here's a quick guide to what they mean:

0/5- God Awful. Abysmal. Reserved only for the most horrible works to come out of any medium.

1/5- Just plain bad. You probably thought, "Hey! The trailer looked promising" or "It can't be as bad as they say". It was ONLY promising, and it IS as bad as they say.

2/5- Poor. Only for the most dedicated fans to a specific franchise.

3/5- Mediocre. Entirely mixed. If you like the genre, give it a glance. If you are indifferent, this won't change your mind.

4/5- Good. Definitely would recommend it even to someone that knows nothing about it.

5/5- Great. And a must-read or watch.

6/5- Reserved for the most remarkable and original pieces from that medium. I plan to use this sparingly.
