Re: On what basis do you rate films ?

I don't think I could use a catch-all criteria since every movie is different otherwise you end up sounding stupid by saying things like "Dunkirk lacked character development"....no shit it's a war action-thriller. So yeah basic combo of how much I liked them, their impact, sometimes uniqu...

Re: Colossal

I enjoyed this one but I noticed most of the reviews as well as my close TCIs for it were unkind so I'm really wondering what other movies have I dismissed that are badly reviewed but I would enjoy. I'm not saying I thought it was a masterpiece, close to a B or B+ type and it definitely had its shar...

Re: Feature film of the year

I'm going with Manchester By The Sea as the best by a mile from what I've seen last year. Arrival/Handmaiden were the next best two I thought and then Hell or High Water. I have a handful of well-rated ones to see like Hidden Figures and Nocturnal Animals but I thought Manchester By The Sea was the ...

Re: Wishlist Download

They actually copy/paste fairly well into a spreadsheet, I just checked but the PSI beside the movie will be in the same cell as the title of the film rather than a separate cell. Bit of manual work especially if you have a big wishlist but easy solution for now.

Re: Name that country

This problem has been discussed before https://www.criticker.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4766&p One of the solutions offered was introducing a new tag 'language' Not really a solution, just a different category. That solution works for me. I was interested in looking up Italian films made...

Re: Movie Podcasts

There's quite a few Criterion ones and one called The Criterion Quest hosted by a couple Aussie guys is good, it's straightforward and simple. No gimmicks or long ad breaks or random tangents or whatever, they just pick one movie and watch it and then talk about it while making good points. I only l...

Re: What does everyone think of accounts show ratings from other sites?

Of these, by far the lowest TCI (i.e., closest taste to me) is mubivotes, who is my 37th closest user (TCI: 1.8288, with 2564 films in common). I don't know anything about what mubi is, though. It's a Film streaming website, they have an $8 subscription I think and one new movie added each day whic...

Re: Trial & Error Sitcom

I saw a couple episodes, not bad but I don't think it'll ever get to the Parks&Rec or Office level of mockumentary...the cast is much weaker imo but the jokes are decent.

Re: On what basis do you rate films ?

I agree with not rating a film if you didn't finish it or have too vague a recollection of it. Also I think it's a really bad idea to rate a movie based on how well made of a movie it was instead of rating it based on how much you like it. The whole point of the PSI thing is to get people with a sim...
