Do you love watching movies? Have you found that with a few drinks even a bad movie can be quite enjoyable? MovieBoozer.com is a movie rating website where movies are rated on the number of beers needed for optimum movie watching enjoyment. According to MovieBoozer:
Our ratings always start with A Toast. If you’re like us, then you like a cold one in your hand anytime you’re watching a movie. You’re no alcoholic, but you like a good beer whenever you are seated and watching for example: a daughter’s ballet recital, a Nascar race, a tennis match, a baseball game, strippers… you get the idea. As the movie gets tougher to watch, adding beers make what you’re watching better, hopefully. The worst possible rating is a 6 Pack.
In addition to movie reviews you can also find: movie news, trailers, a podcast, columns, Oscar talk, movie drinking games, and more.
When it come to entertainment, does it seem like the top critics just can’t seem to agree? Do you wish they would come up with some sort of consensus before you spend your hard earned dollars? Metacritic.com is a website that combines the scores of top critics and site users to come up with a single rating for movies, games, TV, and music. According to Metacritic:
Metacritic’s mission is to help consumers make an informed decision about how to spend their time and money on entertainment. We believe that multiple opinions are better than one, user voices can be as important as critics, and opinions must be scored to be easy to use… Metacritic’s proprietary Metascore distills the opinions of the most respected critics writing online and in print to a single number.
Do you love watching movies? Does it seem like film critics never pick movies that you actually like? Are random amateur critics on the interwebs even worse? Are your friends movie picks a lot better? Goodfil.ms is a social movie rating website where you can rate and review movies and get recommendations based on your friends’ ratings. According to Goodfilms:
Goodfilms is a site for you to rate, review, and share your movie experiences, and while doing so find new films (or rediscover old ones) for you to watch. We’ve built the site based around two fundamental ideas: that films are social, and that existing rating systems are broken… The best way to find movies is through the people you know. We’ve designed Goodfilms from the ground up to show you what your existing friends are watching and rating, and to focus on showing you what the people around you think about films instead of a random grab bag of “internet voters” or highly specialised critics.
Films can be browsed by year. Goodfilms’ rating system allows you to give movies two separate ratings, critical quality and rewatchability, which results in films falling into four zones: “Good, Good”, “Enjoyably Bad”, “Difficult, Great”, and “Zone of Crap.” Goodfilms also has a blog.
