Confused About Movie Reviews?

Original post made by Diane, Danville, on Oct 12, 2014

I appreciate the movie reviews in the DE, but I find myself wondering about the star rating system. I don't see a range associated with the ratings. When a movie receives 3 stars, is that 3 out of 3? 4? 5? I'm just wondering if the scale is there somewhere and I've missed it entirely!

I'm pretty sure I would likely agree with them, but it would be helpful to have the range to assist with perspective.

I just checked, and I don't see a rating system explanation either. I think that would be helpful.

Well, Laura Here I guess it's just you and me that find this confusing! Thanks for your response. I think I'll stick with Rotten Tomatoes where the scale is identified and obvious.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
