Three and a half stars

That awkward moment you watch a 3.5 star rated *movie on Netflix — and when you’re done, you go to rate it and you realize you really didn’t like it.

Not 3 stars. Not 2. But 1 star.

But you see the existing 3.5 stars and think, “Well, the consensus is that this is a 3.5 star movie. Do I really want to be THAT guy and give it a 1 star review?”

Yes.

‘Cause the Internet be crazy. O_o

[ Except all of you. YOU have excellent taste and I love you very much. And seriously, did you change your hair? It looks different. I love what you’ve done to it. Are those new shoes? ]

*Ain’t no way Dredd is a 3.5 star movie.

When did our story telling standards go the way of the DoDo?

Go watch any of the following:

  • The Godfather
  • Cool Hand Luke
  • Say Anything
  • The Shawshank Redemption
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • The Princess Bride
  • Alien
  • Aliens
  • Lawrence of Arabia
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
  • Apocalypse Now
  • The Shining
  • The Iron Giant

…then tell me Dredd is a 3.5 star movie.
