Star Trek 9/10. First time i have seen anything Star Trek besides when I saw one of them with Prof.X (Patrick Stewart). I enjoyed it a lot, but Im a Star Wars guy for life and my favorite part about Star Wars is the Ship Battles and Star Trek didnt have that very epic battle. Again thats why it is a 9 outta 10 but thats what part 2 is for. IU.S.S. Enterprise

The Happening 11/10..... WHY??!....... Because Marky Mark talks to a PLANT!!! Greatest Scene EVER


JKJKJKJK....That Movie Sucked BIG TIME

Terminator Salvation

It deserves a 5/10, but I'll give it a 6.5/10 cuz I've loved Cameron's films since I could talk.

Feel free to round that up to a 7 if you need to.

Why would past films have a bearing on a current rating? And what elements accounted for that .5? The filter?

Because it's a fourth sequel?

Lets be honest, when they're trying their hardest to poke you on the shoulder and say "Hey this is a T2 sequel in case you didn't know", it matters. The movie itself was a 5/10.

The only enjoyment I got out of it were moments like Arnold's cameo, or the Guns N Roses song, or catchphrase lines like "Come with me if you want to live" and "I'll be back"

That's why the past movies have bearing on it. Those moments are only cashing in off the viewers previous memories. They're not offering anything new. It's a nostalgia moment. It doesn't make the film good, it just makes you smile a little bit based on the other films.
So yea, that's why that stuff matters. Don't try to act like there isn't an interextual criteria present. The whole gimmick of the movie is that it's a sanctioned predecessor of T2, and the 30 seconds sum total of the movie that is quality is clinging to that.

So yes, I enjoyed some of it. It was a pretty bad movie, but is elevated to just mediocre because of a few moments. They don't make it a good film. I'd enjoy them just as much in a video game. Get it?

I give .5's because I think there needs to be a grey area between a 6 and a 7. I mean seriously, you're judging a movie. There are degrees.

There's a difference between an 85 score on a test, and an 80 score. This movie gets a 65. That's passing. A 6 wouldn't be.

So why not just... give it a seven? You can argue degrees, but you really don't know what accounts for that .5 do you? It just seems like a precise score. If you gave it a six or seven I would have imagined your feelings just the same. This isn't a crack against you, I just find the whole 'point-anything' score pretentious. X out of five is much more direct, IMO.

I didn't see the movie, but I'm willing to bet you liked more than 30 seconds. That's not a bit harsh to you?

I meant 30 seconds of T2 nostalgia. The action was great too, but whats action when it doesn't serve a great story, and you don't care about the characters engaging in it? It's nothing, and it makes it a living video game for 13 year olds...hence the PG13 rating

. I don't know how much the enjoyable elements added up to. It was a quip.

The plot (if there was one) and the characters were fairly awful.
I gave a breakdown of how I felt about the movie in the other thread.

How is the point any less direct? It's just a decimal to give it an extra half point. Like I said, it's like a test score.
A 6.5 is passing. A 6 is not. I gave it a 6.5 because I found it to be inbetween. It wasn't a fail, but it wasn't a good movie.
A 7 would be a good, but not great movie.

6 is mediocre
7 is good
8 is very good
9 is amazing
10 is a masterpeice

I felt it was somewhere between "okay" and "mediocre"

At the core, though, it's a pretty bad movie. Once you strip away the Terminator bells and whistles.

I was joking about the round up to 7 thing. It was for people who would have a problem with my low rating. It was a joke aimed at this type of shit.

Your score system makes 1 through 5 pointless, though. Why don't you just take your 6 through 10 and make it 1 through 5?

It doesn't make 1-5 pointless. I said 6 was mediocre.

1-5 would be degrees of bad. How is that pointless? If you are under .500 on a score, you are bad. There are different degrees to rate how badly you fail.

Why must you play devils advocate on all things fanboy? I don't see you questioning my Angels and Demons rating, or my In Bruges score.
It's because it's Terminator and I'm not sure why you're compelled to speak up on the behalf of any negative aura surrounding these things. Sometimes these movies suck. It's okay.

6.5/10 ----mediocre.

The truth is rating systems are all flawed. It's a measurement to gauge an intangible thing. I'm giving it extra degrees to make it less flawed.

The substance of my rating would be in the explanation given for why I did or didn't think it was a good movie, which I did.
See that.

I have to address your frequent comparisons to test scores.

If I get a 65 in a test, my teacher could show me exactly what accounted for that 5 points that put me between a 60 and a 70. Tests use strict systems that take correctness/errors into account. Now unless you're gonna tell me you broke down the movie into elements that were correct or erroneous, that led to such a precise score of 6.5, it's a bad comparison. This is my issue with any score system that does this. It's like straddling the fence. A test score isn't straddling the fence because there are tangible, exact evidence that constitutes an exact score.

3/5 is mediocre.

And with you using a scale of ten, you already have enough degrees to work with, no?

You're gonna tell me you can account for any tangibles exactly with other numbers? What real difference does it make? At what point does it become pretentious.

Me and others have been using a 10 point scale with decimals for this entire thread. Suddenly it's a problem with Terminator?

It's because thats where I'd place the movie numerically. It's not an exact score. I'm not using a decimal point like .432 or something.
It's a .5. By that I mean half. A half a star.
Just because it's a decimal doesn't mean I'm being a mathematic stickler.

I've voiced my feelings on the matter in the past - I'm not in Terminator's pocket or anything. It just happens to be you I'm addressing. Don't feel persecuted, feel chosen.

And I don't like half-a-stars either. Gay.

The .5's probably for the credit sequence. Something like the points you get on SATs for getting your name right.

I just use the Netflix system. 1 Star = Hated it, 2 = Didn't Like it, 3 = Liked it, 4 = Really liked it, 5 = Loved it.

However there are some movies I feel fall between these where I throw in the .5. To me a 5/5 would pretty much be a perfect movie which I don't really encounter often. I really really liked Star Trek but didn't LOVE it/think it was perfect so I gave it 4.5/5
