The Rating System

Here at SquidFlicks, our rating system is both familiar and unique! We rate a movie based on its overall quality of its four evaluated parts : Dialogue, Acting, Plot, and Music. From that rating of zero through five, the movie is given the SquidFlicks tag – a Squid Rating! The Squid Rating is our way of telling you whether or not to buy, rent, or even own or think about owning a movie! Read on to understand better!

In lieu of the cliché rating “stars”, SquidFlicks uses multiples and fractions of its logo:

The Squid Rating system is as follows:

  • Rating of 0 out of 5 is Dead Squid; Don’t even rent this movie!
  • Rating of 1-2 out of 5 is Dying Squid; Rent only!
  • Rating of 3 out of 5 is Squid; Rent it, buy it if you like it, decent movie.
  • Rating of 4 out of 5 is Gold Squid; Definitely rent it, good to buy
  • Rating of 5 out of 5 is Platinum Squid; Perfect, you should own it already!

We appreciate comments on the rating system, and hope that it helps you to pick great movies and avoid the stinkers! =)
