Hi all, JMagnesium. I just joined and love what I've seen of Criticker so far. (I came to escape the Rotten Tomatoes drama.)
I was really surprised when I rated a movie 70 (I meant "pretty OK") and the site marked it red and labeled it "terrible", but after a little reading up, it looks like I just have to keep rating more movies so the algorithm gets a better idea of the range I use.
So far, I really like how transparent and individual-preference-based this all is. I can feel all my movie-rating angst deflate as I think about it. *Hahhhh...* peace.

My only quip is I wish Criticker looked more modern. I think more people would use it. I almost exited the tab immediately when I saw the early-2000s boxes and colors. I thought "no way this site has an active community." Then, after using it for about 30 seconds, I realized its functionality is top-notch. This site is seriously fine-tuned to be intuitive, functional, and inviting. Still, it really, really needs to look modern, in my humble opinion.

Hi everyone,

My name is Isla. I'm 36 and I just joined this site yesterday. Films aside I like reading, writing poetry from time to time, listening to Radio 2 and (nature/landscape) photography.

I'm a big film fan, I have a large spreadsheet listing all the films I've seen, by date/source/rating/director/release year etc. so I'm a bit of a film geek, although I'm really not good at maths, so I admit I struggle to fully understand the algorithms side of things.

I'm going through my 'by rating' sheet, looking up every film I've watched by rating, currently its all the films I've rated as 10/10. As others have said, some of the films I'm rating it claims, under my rating, as being not good or terrible etc. I assume im not doing the ratings the correct way? is it a bad idea to go through my list of films by rating?

Hello! Another female here!

My name is Jessica, and I'm from Connecticut, U.S.A. I'm married, with two teenaged children and a ridiculously adorable two-year-old mini goldendoodle. I'm passionate about music, literature, genealogy, and movies, and I am a huge Sherlock Holmes aficionado. I run an online Holmes reading & discussion group. I'm a singer and a pianist.

1. My favorite film genre (and literature genre) is horror. I've been a huge horror buff for as long as I can remember. I'm not as interested in slasher films or what they call "torture porn", but I can't get enough of supernatural horror.
Of course, while horror is my fav, I also love comedy, drama, mystery, action, thriller, historical, musical, and suspense films. I think the only genre I have a really hard time with is tear-jerkers. Not a fan of sad.

Other than that, I'm really pretty boring, so I can't really think of anything else to add. I'm really enjoying what I've seen of this group so far!

I'm Margaret, film fan, I run my own website specifically on Indian film but I'm hoping for a place to talk about other film genres too.
