Ratings

Ratings

Reviews are rated out of five, with ¼, ½, ¾, or full ★s awarded for each of:

  1. Character development. Are they engaging?
  2. Plot development. Do neat things happen?
  3. Complexity. Must I decipher, infer, grab a dictionary? Conversely, am I daydreaming?
  4. Originality. Fresh?
  5. Recommendability. Can I honestly recommend this to friends?

Movies are mostly obtained from a list which I’ve since organized into a spreadsheet averaging both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes ratings. I don’t have such a resource for books, but if I did it’d be Goodreads and Amazon ratings I’d use.
