Anything 51 and up is a recommendation, meaning you aren't wasting your time seeing it. Anything between 51-79 ranges from mediocre to very good. Anything 80+ is what I call a "Great Movie" and it's a must-see and is awesome to various degrees. Anything that's a 50 is something that I'm a fence sitter on (meaning I'm too useless to actually be able to make up my god damn mind) so it could go either way. 49 and under means you should avoid. Under 10 means I was probably raped by the movie or, at the very least, fondled. Despite the effort I've put into explaining my rating system, numbers are fairly often chosen at random (well, maybe my gut feeling) so I might actually like a movie I rated 75 more than an 85, I just really can't be bothered to go back and constantly re-do my ratings.

"Actually made me laugh a few times. The bosses are memorable, the music is cool, the visuals are on point. The action in general is tense and not that it's ridiculously hard but if you don't pay attention you will get smoked quick. "
50 11% Spirit of the North (2019) - May 16, 2020
"I tend to be more lenient with games where you play as animals or animals are a big part, but I had a hard time with this one. The music is wonderful, I love playing as a fox, but they should have done more with being a fox. The same bark over and over again gets boring, especially since foxes have varied noises that they make. The landscapes are okay but aren't really that beautiful and the platforming is janky as hell. I'm very on the fence with this one, there's stuff to like and hate."
60 16% Sky: Children of the Light (2019) - May 08, 2020
"I imagine this is probably at least close to as entertaining as Journey was, but the magic has worn off. They've evolved it somewhat but it still feels a bit like more of the same. Journey worked because of how unique it was. The other issue I have is not really the game's fault, but the platform that it's on: touch controls suck for games like this. It seriously hurts the experience, but I like the artistic design and what they are trying to do so I still give it a passing grade."
80 53% Sonic & Knuckles (1994) - May 05, 2020
"Haven't played it since it released so I have to rate it as a kid. As a kid I really liked it because of having Knuckles in it. Whether the level design and whatnot is actually decent I'm not sure, I just remember renting it a lot and really enjoying it back then. I dug the speed but wasn't thinking too critically. I don't intend to revisit it to find out so take this review with a grain of salt."
75 40% Destiny 2 (2017) - May 05, 2020
"More of the same. I didn't spend as much time with this as I did the first but I like it. I like the way these games feel and they are entertaining with a buddy, but I don't care about the story and I don't think it does a lot to make the game exciting. I also hated the beginning of this game."
80 53% Pop'n TwinBee (1993) - May 04, 2020
"Really liked it. Being able to bounce the bells and get points/different guns is a fun mechanic. I just think it does this genre quite well, and I wish I had played it when I was younger. I would have sunk a lot of time into this. "
65 22% Brawl Brothers (1992) - May 04, 2020
"I couldn't remember if I had played this before or not until I turned it on. Yes I did, but that about tells you what to expect. It's a solid beat 'em up in an age where it was a popular genre but none of the characters/moves are that memorable. "
80 53% Puyo Puyo 2 (1994) - May 04, 2020
"I didn't understand a word of it but it's my first experience with Puyo Puyo and the puzzle action was clever/good enough that I may actually try out newer games. "
65 22% Super Earth Defense Force (1992) - May 04, 2020
"It's fine. Back in the day we got a lot of these so it was hard to stand out. This doesn't do anything real unique but I imagine back in the day I would have ate it up. You go through the levels, you can choose different weapons, then you fight bosses at the end. None of it is substantial but it's enjoyable and if you have Nintendo Online you can just play for "free" anyway."
80 53% ITTA (2020) - May 04, 2020
"Not usually a fan of games I'd consider really hard but I like this one. It's not the hardest but it's certainly difficult. It gives you modifiers so you don't get stuck, which is a nice touch. Why I dig this and not other boss-rush style games is because I love bullet-hell games. The visual style is like you'd see in Hyper Light Drifter and I'm not bored of it yet, and I've seen people say the music is uneven but I really like it."
