Absolutely shatteringly awful. One of the worst films ever made.
A film with little reason to exist, seriously poor big budget films to seriously underwhelming genre entries.
Not entirely awful, but totally forgettable. Only really watchable after returning from the bar/pub.
OK, but not a success in anyone’s book and generally distinctly average. Don’t let the dog miss his walk for this.
Barely above average, you’re kept watching by one or two things – a performance, the photography, whatever, but it’s generally a minor affair.
This is a very good way to spend an afternoon. Above average, and generally entertaining.
An excellent film, maybe never approaching greatness, but the sort of film that will not disappoint and better than 90% of films released these days.
A thoroughly entertaining or near classic which entertains all the way, but falls just short of the best of its type.
From faded milestones of cinema to classics of a given genre, as near as dammit to the masterpiece level but just fractionally below. You’ll get only a few of these a year.
An absolute masterpiece of cinema, one which leaves one with a glow upon ejecting the DVD and, in general terms, could not have been done any better. If you get one or two of these a year, count yourself fortunate.
