Exactly, I went through the same thing the first time I saw City Heat with Eastwood and Reynolds, I thought it was supposed to be a serious film, it was a comedy, it's entertaining if you know that at the get go.

I'm gonna purchase this and take a flyer on Sabata Returns.  I liked the movie. I know to watch in now in context.  Banjo and his boot will probably still get on my nerves, lol. Other than that, it was a pretty cool movie. I especially liked the scene where they had to take down the stronghold of the heavy...

I came up with my own system for movies in my inventory. I might just start using it here.  My system is as follows:

I rate a movie 1-10.  I have five categories.  In each category, a movie can get either 0 points, .5 point (half point),1 point or 2 points, a example:

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Cinematography- 2 points

Musical Score- 2 points

Acting- 2 points

Directing- 1.5 point

Plot- 1 point

Total- 8.5 points

Directed by Alfred E. Green written by Jerome Odlum, Dennis O'Keefe, cinematography by Ernest Laszlo (D.O.A. (1949), Impact (1949), M (1951), Stalag 17 (1953)) The film stars William Bendix, Dennis O'Keefe, and Barbara Britton with Doro Merande.

An insurance investigator O'Keefe goes to small town to investigate a suicide, cute meets Britton on train, town cop is Bendix. The suicide turns out to be a murder and a double indemnity payout. It's about a 6/10 notable for it using a lot of Christmas imagery.

Currently on Youtube in 6 parts five of which are still watchable, 1/6 was deleted, but somebody uploaded the whole film also but it's zoomed and sped up so you can watch the first 5 minutes of that see the cute meet and as soon as you get to the scene with William Bendix you can go to the descent 2/6 upload. It's a bit of a pain but you'll get to see it.

CJ, you have to make a whole new thread for your noir ratings. By your standards, any noir less than 10/10 is shit. Hell, even many 10/10ís are shit  Wink

You exaggerate muchly. I don't even bother with anything below a 5/10.  Cool

CJ, I saw the discussions about Meek's Cutoff, The Homesman and the new Magnificent Seven which just reinforces my believe that a ratings system is completely arbitrary. I really like Jill's interpretation of it though.


Yes it's interesting to see how others grade things.

Sure a lot has to do with your personal preferences and tastes, ratings are a good barometer for others, if you've written a lot of reviews and people read them, they will get a feel for how you look at a film, and if they find themselves agreeing with you a lot, then that rating will give them a good idea whether or not they will go and seek it out on Youtube or rent it, or if that option is not available actually purchase a film, knowing that you won't get burned.

It's more helpful I guess to a readership, but wouldn't matter much to the casual reader.

Try to watch it and make your own judgment. Hard to watch a classic and not have all the comments in mind. Always Keep an open mind and feel free to make your own judgment, on any movie.

Also, sometimes an old movie was groundbreaking in its day but today we take that sort of stuff for granted. Furthermore, there are many great effects in Citizen Kane that may not be apparent on first viewing.

My suggestion is, watch it once on your own, and then watch it a second time with Roger Ebertís great commentary.

Enjoy  Smiley
