Ever wondered how I judge movies on my rating system, and what the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) ratings mean exactly? Check it out here.
COSMR'S RATING SYSTEM
***1/2--A great movie, and not very flawed.
***--Good, but not great.
**--Below average; not very good, but with some redeeming qualities.
*1/2--Almost completely awful, with maybe one or two saving graces.
*--Cinematic dung. No other explanation.
