When I say "Highly recommended", it's really more like "great movie"; "Must see", while still a very strong recommendation, only ranges up to "near-great". Or, put another way, I find A− movies excellent but marred only to a slight degree, while I have a few more reservations about B+ movies. If it helps, the scale is designed symmetrically, so the difference between an A− and a B+ is the same difference between a D+ and a D: you can say that you "must avoid" a movie without it quite being a "disaster", and you can similarly say that you "must see" something with it quite being "great". Admittedly, I see how the labels can be confusing (and I should've explained it better in the original post), but you can just swap them if they make more sense that way.

I felt like there was some consistency to how I rated, so I actually made an AI to weigh different factors I might consider. It's pretty accurate.

70 is special. A 70 or above shows an intent beyond mainstream entertainment. The loophole is, even movies I don't like that meet this criterion get a 70. Sante Sangre is a recent example. Anything below a 60 is mass culture, lowest-denominator trash. 73 is more or less a seal of approval. 74 is a notch above that, indicating something legitimately special. 75 or higher is just plain great. I don't generally rate much above 80. I maxed out the inputs on my AI to see what the highest I could possibly rate a movie was, and it was somewhere around 94, but the combination of factors was so absurd that no such movie could exist.

It took me a long time, but I did come up with a list
PEOPLE: Acting, Characters, Casting, Importance, Chemistry.
WRITING - Dialogue, Balance, Story Depth, Originality, Interesting,
BTS - Visuals, Cinematography, Editing, Advertising, Music/Sound,
NARRATIVE ARC - Intro, Inciting Incident, Obstacles, Climax, Resolution,
ENTERTAINMENT - Rewatchability, Fun Experience, Impulse to Buy, Impulse to Talk About/Recommend, Sucks you in

Now, because no two movies are the same, I also have a SPECIALTY category for specific questions, like genre specific, character specific, franchise specific, sequel/prequel/remake specific, actor specific, director specific

Finally, I ask if it is halfway decent. If a filmmaker made the movie that they set out to make from the get go, no matter how much you love or hate a movie, that deserves credit. All of this adds up to 100

I rate on a 5-star scale with no half-stars (be decisive damn it!). So on Criticker I use 20, 40, 60, 80, 100. It's better than, for example saying "63", because in a month those people won't have a chance in hell of remembering their scores. But it's pretty easy to remember out of 5 possible scores.

20 - hated it, elicited loud sighs, my face firmly resting on my fist, wish I had walked out, etc.
40 - wouldn't recommend it.
60 - Good, recommended.
80 - LOVED it!
100 - Classic! Shout it from the rooftops! Buy 100 copies on Blu-ray and leave them in mailboxes around the neighbourhood!

Personally i see no difference between 61 and 62 or 69 and 70, that's why i left always one point gap between ratings; for example, i rate 70 after 72/73 (stands for the same value) or i rate 68/67 (stands for the same) after 70 etc. So my ratings never end with number of 1,4,6 or 9... That's my rating style, so i can keep my ranking list in an order with sufficient ranking variety. If you find it interesting, you can check it out from my profile..

Yeah! I had developed a system a while ago and now I just stick with it. It spans from 4 - 98, I purposefully do not rate any movies 100 (it's the perfectionist in me); but instead of using every # there are only 18 values: 4, 10, 15 (terrible); 22, 28 33 (disappointing); 40, 46, 51 (good); 58, 64, 69 (very good and memorable); 76, 82, 87 (excellent); and then an upper echelon of my favorites getting 93, 95, 98. So there are basically 6 "star" categories and then I added some levels within so that I can tell if it was "barely" a 4 or "almost" a 5. It was enough for me to have a solid idea when I saw the score how I felt about it.

I rate on the simple 1-10 scale, with 5/10 being ok/worth a look --- pinning everything I watch down on a 1-100 scale sounds far too much like hard work, or an exacting science for which I simply don't have the patience. I honestly have no idea how anybody can decide what makes one film a 49 and another a 50.

i tried to use 100 system, but it looks like i ended up using only 75-85 ;}

i'd need more gaps :{

one the other hand i am trying not watch something i could easily consider as having films from say 7,5 [mediocre] to 8,5[awesome] out of 10 (or 75-85 out of 100.) would make sense for me. not many cases where i d go above (some favourites maybe) and below (something which pissed me off spending time on)... and if it is a film with sound, and actors, and picture - it will already be given 40-50points ...just for efforts

out of 100 is perfectly good way, the best way, to rate I've decided, after spending years thinking it wasn't, and using out of 5 and 10. The key is to rate accurately the films that aren't good. You need a good amount of films in the 0-50/60 group. Once you do that, there really does become a clear difference to you between a 73 and a 75. You just have to rate enough movies. It all becomes relative. My predictions now can be eeirly accurate.
