Laughs, Tears, Cheese & Cheers Reviews

Here I review movies by how they make me feel, blending my geeky love for statistics with my passion for movies of all genres and general critical disposition.

To do this I have created a scale, and a leader board…

Score: Laughscomedy-mask Tearstragedy Cheese (-)stinky-cheese Cheersfist-pump Fearsscaredcat2 Bonus CatAdmin Cat Face
5 A riot Wah! Stinky Stilton Standing Ovation Nightmares Forever ?
3-4 A hoot Gentle Sob Mature Cheddar Fist Pump Bad Dream ?
1-2 A chuckle Sniffle Soft Cheese Small Whoop Cripes ?

And here is the current leader board. Where a film is tied for position, the film with the highest score in any one category goes above. If they are still tied, I will look at the spread of the categories scored, and after that, I will think of something or other…

Readers Choice: Have your say!

Use the form below to submit your scores for the films listed (please don’t submit for unlisted films… that will just get confusing and I won’t use them). When I have received enough I will start building a readers choice table to see how it compares to my own humble opinion!

Please note the bonus category is as shown in my table and (eventually) explained in the linked review, but feel free to use the score as a modifier if you feel strongly that an important aspect isn’t covered in the ratings, and use the comment box to tell me why…

If you just want to comment in general, use the comments box below this page.

Readers Choice Table

Only one entry so far, so not much in it… Also, the ‘Fears’ category wasn’t in play at the time, but the score was very generous anyway, so I’ve let that slide.
