A few friends and I are looking forward to seeing This is the End on Sunday, been hearing really good things.
Saw This is the End today and thought it was great. Definite bromance kinda flick but I thought it was epic.

As a side note since we have some hard nosed athiests, I'm not sure if its the best film for them. It was a little preachy but not offensively preachy. If you're open minded, you'll breeze through this film and have a great time.

I hope you all know that the standard US rating system is out of four stars, not five. Not trying to troll, just saying

It's not a "law" or something. It is most commonly used across the US in major newspapers and TV shows.

Look kid, go to your TV Guide and look up a movie and you'll see that every movie rating is from 0 stars to 4 stars (with half stars in between). Pick up a USA Today or Washington post or New York Times. It's all out of 4 stars.

5 star ratings tend to be with cars, restaurants and hotels. You want a source for that you can go look it up on your own time.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

super man is good. not enough explosions or cgi though :P and a bit cheesy.

star trek is better, and i'd check that out first in case you've been living under a rock.

after earth is terrible. will smith got the movie made so his son could star in it, but dude can't act. I saw it cause will smith is really good, but he spends the movie as a supporting actor sitting crippled in a chair. lame.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

what standard US rating system? is it an iso standard or a ieee standard? what are the UART opcodes? :P that link you threw up is just an opinion puff piece. meaningless. and pointless.

oh yeah, gatsby, decent, not amazing. I thought the 2010 rap music throughout the party scenes in the first 30 minutes was ridiculous for a period piece, and the casting wasn't a good fit imo. it's faithful to the book though from what i remember.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994) - IMDb

10 Stars

World War Z - Rotten Tomatoes

Uses a percentage

Seems to me it depends on the "reviewer" not a "standard" as you so proudly seem to have posted by not trying to be a "troll".

I hope you all know that the standard US rating system is out of four stars, not five. Not trying to troll, just saying

Another prime example of you posting misinformation without a source or better yet confusing your belief/guess/ opinion as fact. Please carry on with your worthlessness.

Rottentomatoes created their own rating system to change up from the most commonly used 4 star system. Ditto for imdb althought they didn't create the out of ten rating system, they probably use it to give viewers a wider scale to rate on (ie instead of 3.5 stars it can be anywhere from a 7.5-9.5 on their scale, so they can give their viewers a better comparison of what other movies rate similarly).

All I'm saying is that the five star scale isn't used for movies, it's used for cars, hotels, restaurants. You ever heard of a five star hotel? Or a five star restaurant?

That's all kids. There's your movie lesson of the day.

wtf are you going on about. as long as the rater says x out of 4 or y out of 5 the reader on a Skins site gets the idea. I understood what the other posters were saying who the heck cares if US standard is out of 4 or 5.

CultBrennan59 you are a flipping joke. That is your lesson for the day.

Also the standard scale for rating posters on a message board is 5 stars.

CultBrennan59 = .5* out of 5*
