inspired by Thomas's newfound disregard of nuance, I will henceforth only review movies using traffic light colours

Mad Max: Fury Road 馃煝
Apple in the River 馃煛
Trancers 馃煝
Antonio Gaud铆 馃煛
Tokyo Drifter 馃煝

critic/filmmaker Dan Sallitt has a baroque six-colour scale he uses instead of ratings place movies in an all-time context

the colors are red (pantheon), orange (near-masterpiece), yellow (Hall of Very Good), blue (good), purple (lowest rung of recommendability or interest), and everything not worth ranking is grey

this is needlessly complicated but very interesting

also pick better colours bro, my colourblind ass can't differentiate a bunch of this

for all it's flaws this is better than Mike D'Angelo's 100-point scale

@derek How does he score it? What's the difference between an 89 and a 90???

@derek @Thomas I rate my movies based on various types of cutlery. I will not be elaborating.
