I wonder sometimes why other then for informational purposes do food companies post the serving size of a said product? And a follow up, does anyone actually only eat 28 goldfish? It's hard enough once the bag is open to try and close it and save it for another day. Instead can we just say, half the bag is 400 calories rather than concentrating on the amount you have to eat to stay under that amount. It is funny how movies and food go hand in hand in that way. In many ways they can be restrictive to audiences with ratings for children or adults. They can also restrict our access to go to the bathroom if you can't press the pause button or in the content being not what they portrayed in their catalyst trailer. I can't rate movies in the way they have been rated in the past, Rotten Tomatoes, stars or flixster. I can only devise a way for myself, my own rules for watching movies just as there are rules and regulations for food. I'm building my own recipe so to speak.
First off let me just say I watch a lot of movies, if you haven't figured that out yet. I watch them all the time and I do have favorites and one hit wonders. I also rewatch things I can't get enough of or use as back ground music for when I'm crafting or painting or doing things that don't need my eyes glued to a screen for 2.5 hrs. I don't you should be rating the same movie the same and for that reason I don't watch the oscars anymore. I used to be so excited about the oscars because it was a chance for my family to stay up late admiring fancy clothes. Same reason we watched olympic figure skating. In figure skating the judges rate a lot of different things and you can get disqualified for certain outfit choices. At the oscars winning votes are tallied and the movie just wins. I mean who ever has the most, it's basically picking your prom king and queen and their adoring subjects. Anyways I think I'm going to go bout this another way. As part of this experiment I will be using emojis, words, numbers and symbols. I will make my own voting system for the movies I review or write about. Each will be different and some will overlap. It's a good experiment as maybe in the end I'll have a better understanding of the film and what its real rating should be. Rather than what facts may portray.
