ABOUT MOVIEMAN’S GUIDE TO THE MOVIES

Basic History
Movieman’s Guide to the Movies has been online, in some form and fashion, since around 2000 that began on the website building site, Homestead with a small community of like-minded movie lovers. It began as a hobby site and over the years has grown from theatrical to home video reviews on DVD and Blu-ray. As the site creator, my interest vary across genres though I have preferences over others.

Ratings
My ratings system is rather simple:

  • 4.5-5 Stars – Excellent
  • 4.0-4.25 Stars –  Very Good
  • 3.5-3.75 Stars – Good
  • 3.0-3.25 Stars – Fair
  • 2.5-2.75 Stars – Average
  • 2.0-2.25 Stars – Below Average
  • 1.5-1.75 Stars – Poor
  • 0-1.25 Stars – Downright Awful

I decided on this range of ratings as a way to distinguish certain movies especially on the upper end where perfection, especially with films, is hard to come by for me. How I rate the video and audio portions vary though I do tend to give some leniency to older films compared with newer releases which more often than not, especially from studio releases, are near perfect in both categories.

  1. Hello.

    I’m writing review of 4K VOD in Poland, and want to compare some movies with different quality (SD, HD and 4K).

    May I use few (about 3 or 4) of your pictures from your BD Screen Caps? Of course with links to your site.

    Best regards from Poland,
    Szymon Adamus.
