As a side note, for those like me who like symmetry, the only reason I still rate movies on a 0-10 scale is because I have been in the habit of doing it forever. I find books/tv translate much better on a 0-5 scale, and movies are more complicated (for me personally). Hopefully that doesn’t make it confusing. Please feel free to reference this page and I’ll have it linked on all my reviews to help.
