This site was originally designed for students going out to the
movies, so you could know if you were going to get your money and time's worth out of it.
I am a busy graduate student, and I really love movies. I felt there was nothing on the
web to fill this niche.
The rating system was designed to quickly
summarize these things. There is the standard x out of five stars for overall
quality of the experience. Five stars is an epic, drop everything and go see it. Four
stars is pretty damn good movie-making and worth a night out. Three stars is ho-hum,
pretty good fare that will still be worth seeing sometime. Two stars is not worth your
time, and one star is garbage. The second rating is a dollar sign rating, x out of
three $'s. $$$ would indicate that the movie is well worth your time
and money, maybe even worth seeing at night for full admission (although students should
check with your student services dept for discount tickets). $$ would
indicate that it may be worth your time, but it's probably best to try and see a matinee
to save some dough. A single $ would indicate that it's not worth your
time or money, maybe wait for it to go to video.
