Below you will find the tiers of the system, a brief explanation of each tier, and a link to view films that fall under each rating.

AVOID:

Avoid at all costs. It's not worth your time or money. (Avoid Reviews)

NOTE:

The film didn't make an impression on us, but it may work for you depending on your tastes. (Note Reviews)

RENT:

The film/TV show is worth renting, but not necessarily worth seeing in theaters or owning. (Rent Reviews)

OBSERVE:

The film/TV show is a must-see. Consider adding it to your movie collection. (Observe Reviews)

In addition to the four tiers above, there is a fifth tier that we will use on occasion for exceptional movies:

ENSHRINE:

This is the apex of our rating system. We will only use this rating on movies that we think are instant-classics. Films/TV shows with this rating are in a league of their own. (Enshrine Reviews)
