Essentially CAYOM'S own Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.

Rorschach the critical consensus thread doesnt try to approximate RT or Metacritic. It ranks films based on their point value from member lists.

And also, everyone here would have to give every film a letter or number grade AND agree on how to convert letter grades to numbers in order for a RT or MC-like idea to work.

I did this for Year 9 and it worked out fine. Also, I did make a conversion scale for letter grades last year. I just don't feel like reposting the scale to this new thread because I'm currently typing on my phone and it takes forever to type something up.

But it is all based on how you weigh them, not a method adopted by all. And not everyone uses grades so you end up guesstimating for them.

So I still have doubts about this being an official index.

That's fine. I don't expect anyone to agree with the scores or the way I weigh them. Its just at the moment, I can't think of any other way to weigh them other than the way I currently have it.

So if you have any ideas on how I can improve the way I go about weighing the scales, I'm up for hearing them.

Updated January scores. Now we only have two fresh films instead of three.

I'm waiting until more reviews come in to post February results. At least until Numbers finishes up January.

 

I'm going to go by the order I read them down the page, to make it easier for me.

And the Best month of the Year award goes to... well, probably not April but if I had to give it out now, I'd give it to April. Good job guys.

Russian Roulette- 52%

Crusader- 88% (Certified Fresh)

Ciaphas Cain- 88% (Certified Fresh)

Daisy Lemonade- 59%

MST3K: Expedecade- 71%

Kensington- 90% (Certified Fresh)

Crusader and Cain have identical scores (88% as of late Thursday) so I'm just going to rank them in alphabetical order for the time being.

If you don't mind me asking what is the formula you're using to get the percentages?

I can't really put it into words but I think using an example might help.

Ex. E.S.P. so far has at least three reviews. Of those three reviews, all of them rated the movie positively. Three positive reviews = 100%. Then I look more closely at the actual scores. One 'A' and two 'B+s'. An A is basically the equivelant of a 92% (11/12) and B+ is essentially 75% (9/12). 92 + 75 + 75 = 80.7 (rounded up from 80.66 repeating). 80.7 + 100 = 90.35. Round that up and you get 90.4% or 90%.

Hopefully that clears some things up regarding the scores.

Wait, so you give them averages based on grades and based on positive/negative split, and then average those?

 

Just do a straight grade-to-point conversion and call it a day. Hell, just use the metacritic scale.
