    • 10: Instant classic – exists in a league of its own
    • 9: Fantastic – cinematic brilliance
    • 8: Excellent – contains so many good elements that any bad elements are overshadowed
    • 7: Really Good – may not be perfect but definitely worth seeing
    • 6: Good – decent enough entertainment
    • 5: Average – mildly enjoyable
    • 4: Bad – the negatives outweigh the positives
    • 3: Really bad – fundamentally flawed
    • 2: Terrible – almost unwatchable
    • 1: Horrible – no redeeming qualities
