Do you agree with my ratings? (A change for Views from the Sofa)

Review list

I’ve decided to change the rating system on my reviews. Rather than rate every film out of ten (or 100 because I also used decimal points), I’ve decided to go for the more traditional system of rating movies out of 5. (Films can still get a .5 rating too so really it is out of ten.)

I’ve also made the decision to re-rate every film I’ve reviewed so far. This was to correct some weird ratings I’d given in the past but also to make sure all my ratings were in-line with the new system. I also decided to give you guys a chance to take a look at the new ratings and the films I’ve already reviewed.

Take a look; see if there are any you still think are wrong and strongly disagree with and then hit the link and comment on the review (after you’ve read my justification of course). It is in alphabetical order so see if I have reviewed your favourite film or recommend I do if I haven’t managed to see it yet.

Here you go…

  1. Seriously? You haven’t seen Frozen yet? :)
    My daughter would argue with you about the songs in Tangled, they’ve been on loop in our house since she got bored of hearing Frozen :)

    Otherwise mostly similar… although I have opened a few reviews in some other tabs to see if it’s worth arguing with you over ;)

    • I didn’t fancy Frozen and then only seem to hear good things. I don’t even remember the songs from Tangled, which tells you all you need to know there.

You've heard my opinion, let me know what you think...
