Bio: I originally started rating movies on IMDb, so my default rating scale is 1-10 with only whole numbers, and I don't understand why anyone would need more than that. (I didn't realise that Criticker's system doesn't require a 0-100 scale until it was too late.)

I don't go to the movies much, most of my watching is DVDs from a disc-mailing service that I specifically chose to watch because they looked interesting, and as a consequence my ratings tend to skew pretty high. It probably gives a bad representation of my taste (and it completely fucks up my tiers; 90 is tier 9, 80 is tier 6, and 70 is tier 4? What the hell?), but hey, it's not like I'm a professional critic being paid to keep up with new releases. (Though I'm considering adding my ratings for the movies I've watched through MST3K. I'm sure that'd balance it out a bit.) Also, some of my 10/10 ratings are from a while ago and probably need to be re-appraised. Anyway, I basically use this and Flixster to remind myself later which movies I liked and why. It's not like anybody else should give a shit.

"Pretty cool and interesting for a while, but it really fades away in the third act."
80 65% Nobody's Business (1996) - Nov 09, 2020
"Guys I think your dad might be depressed."
60 20% Horse Feathers (1932) - Oct 29, 2020
"I was into the general fast-paced absurdity of the thing, but it didn’t make me laugh very much. A few too many groan-worthy dad jokes and puns. Harpo’s antics are pretty fun, and then he mugs at the camera and my skin tries to crawl off my body."
90 86% Midsommar (2019) - Oct 20, 2020
"This one really spoke to my mood, I just vibed to its tone. I think I liked this one way more than Hereditary because it never really tips over into full-blown supernatural madness, it just gradually ramps up the dread until suddenly everything is on fire and you’re like “yeah that makes sense”. (Though we can all agree that we never really saw Dani come down from the mushrooms... right? I mean, right?!)"
80 65% Computer Chess (2013) - Oct 19, 2020
80 65% You Were Never Really Here (2017) - Oct 14, 2020
"The internal trauma and introspective moments are perfect, of course, because it’s Lynne Ramsay. The violence and action not so much, she should probably avoid that in future, and the plot is like something out of a QAnon briefing. But the vibes, bro. The Lynne Ramsay vibes."
90 86% The Blue Angel (1930) - Oct 05, 2020
70 40% Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015) - Oct 03, 2020
"Huh, interesting. Thought I’d like it more on re-watch but turns out it loses some momentum in the second half, getting a little too bogged down in exposition and plot machination. Still loved it. Cool to see the modular structure of the amazing action sequences in Fallout being given a dry run in the Morocco sequence (heist scene leads into car chase scene leads into bike chase scene). It would be expanded and basically perfected in the Lane extraction later, but this is nothing to scoff at."
70 40% Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011) - Sep 26, 2020
"Slightly weaker than I remembered, especially in comparison to the next two (I have a feeling Rogue Nation will be going up on rewatch), but still super fun, with some great set-pieces. The Kremlin hallway sequence still blows my mind."
80 65% The Circus (1928) - Sep 21, 2020
"The Tramp on the tightrope had me in hysterics."
