Scoring

How do you score a movie?

There are so many variables that can make or break a movie. It doesn’t seem fair to just boil it down to acting and directing. While acting and directing are very important, there are a lot of redeeming qualities for every movie. I’m going to break down everything I review into two categories : Movies and Films (seems oddly familiar doesn’t it?). After they’re split into either category, they’ll be graded on the below criteria. Movies will have slightly different categories and a different point structure. 

Movies

  • Story – 20 points
    • Complexity – 4 points
    • Level of Disbelief – 4 points

    • Character Development – 4 points
  • Mechanics – 20 points
    • Directing – 10 points
