Re: Do I need to see more bad movies?

To fully take advantage of Criticker, I guess yes, since a widespread rating distribution increases the reliability of its recommendation system.

Re: How do you rate ridiculously bad movies: 0 or >0 ?

I haven't yet rated a 0, but I don't have anything against that in theory. It's just that nothing has reached that low yet to me.

Re: Do you change your ratings ?

I am right now xD, slowly adapting my previous 1-10 scale ratings to a 1-100 scale. It will take a while, I'm following a chronological order.

Re: 21st century directors: any great ones?

The more I watch, the more I'm convinced that we are currently living in the golden age of animation. Newer talents like Tomm Moore, Adam Elliot, Sylvain Chomet, Mamoru Hosoda, Makoto Shinkai, Yasuhiro Yoshiura, Hiromasa Yonebayashi, Masaaki Yuasa, Pete Docter, Rich Moore, Don Hertzfeldt. Also peop...

Re: Zero or negative infinity

I don't have this problem because I use a simplified scale of ten elements (10-100). Each of these labels covers a relatively wide range of ratings, which means that I don't need to hold my 0s (10s in my case) in some special regard because there is some degree of variety in this label and it does n...

Re: Masterpieces watched since 2010

I have watched a total amount of 1475 counted full-length films (plus the ones I have watched as a kid or a teen but haven't rated yet because my memories are not solid enough), out of these 1278 since 2010. Needless to say that I've watched most of my 10 ratings since 2010, and I'm quite lenient wi...

Re: Your best mini-reviews

My writing is quite boring and shallow, and with only 7 reviews (I used to have more, but they were lost in the process when I decided to reset all my rankings). I guess my favorite is The room (Score: 10): "This is the one. This is the one I'll be remembered for." --- quote from the biopi...
