★★★★ = Excellent. The best the genre has to offer. ★★★1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see. ★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well. ★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment. ★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired. ★1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend. ★ = Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through. NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing. SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.
