Our rating rubric

The way we write movie reviews (and TV recaps) takes into account three key experience points: 1.) anticipation, or our expectations for how the movie turns out; 2.) experience, or the personal and objective value we get while watching the movie; and 3.) in hindsight, or our appraisal of the movie's story, themes, technicalities, and other factors after much contemplation.

We have taken cue from Little White Lies, who uses a similar rubric albeit with a 4-point rating scale. 

TV Recaps

Per-season deep-dives on television series.

Essential Viewing
