Here's an extreme example - if someone gives a bad rating to most movies he watched; let's say, 50 and downwards.
A movie I gave an 8 to, and a movie he gave a 4 or 3 to, become the same?
If this is the case - Criticker twists everything.
Thats under the assumption that everybody views how they rate the same as you. Like Shogun said earlier, for somebody like him a rating of 70 is very good, but for somebody else it may be completely average or even bad. Think of it this way, when you both have something in your Tier 10 films that means you both agree that the film in question is in the top 10% of films you've ever seen. I rate so that anything over 50 I would recommend watching and anything under should be avoid, but since I generally like movies more have ended up above 50 than below making it so movies ranked in the 50's to be a Tier 4 or worse than 60% of the films I've seen. But if you have similar tastes to me, whether or not you judge films harsher or kinder than I do, you could rightfully say that a film you look at in my tier 4 would less preferable to 60% of other films. Do this for a few hundred films and you can get a pretty decent idea of what films are worth watching the most according to your taste.
