Currently, movies are being rated by many individuals who
have different standards. For example, one might rate a movie
as a five solely based on story line. One might rate the same
movie based on the use of effects and only give it a two.

As an idea, how about instead of a rating system of 1 to 5,
why not exand our rating system into categories.
Such as,
and so on.
Each category can be rated differently from say, 1 to 5
The points are added for a total score.

Also, we could have a rubric or some sort of standard grade sheet
so we could have a definition of what a 1 is up to what a 5 is.
I believe this would give a better score representation of our
community's movies and would provide better feedback to
the filmakers.

If this existing system in its present format must stay at least change the units of voting to % even going to 2nd dec.point this will make it more flexible and help to iron out 85.75%or 85.95% the latter of course being the winner.
I think it would be a start of a better system.
BTW there is another ,if not more, threads discussing this.....check'em out.

Great idea razz but if he's doing that he should make it like if he gets over 4+ in all fields then he should get a couple of force points (as in 4+ on all from one person)...

Now its time for me to act like an admin: "THIS SHOULD BE IN THE WEBSITE DISSCUSSION FORUM!"
