To be noted, I rate my books on a scale from one to five, where five being the highest rating. While I rate my films on a scale from one to ten, and ten being the highest rating. To understand the meaning of each star, you can see my rating system down below. My reviews will also include some basic information, such as title, author or director, genre, MPAA rating, publisher, duration, and etc. As well as a synopsis and my personal opinion about the book or film. I even put a trailer for films so you can have some ideas of what the film is about.
Do not worry of a spoiler, because I tried my best not to put any spoiler or hint that might spoil you.
No Star – ☆☆☆☆☆
I don’t give a no star. I don’t believe in no star because every book or manga must have some value even if I disliked it. I always finish reading any book that I’ve started even though I struggled with it, so there will not be a no star.
1 Star – ★☆☆☆☆
I didn’t like it at all. It’s terrible. I struggled with this book and tried with all my might to make it through the end. I will definitely won’t read it again. Extremely tempted to abandon this book before finishing it. I wouldn’t recommend this book at all.
2 Stars -★★☆☆☆
It was okay. I didn’t dislike it. Still tolerable. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t all that good either. It does have some qualities but still not that I like it very much. Most part is tolerable at best. Small possibility, like really really small, to read it again. I was able to finish it without degrading thoughts.
3 Stars – ★★★☆☆
I liked it. The book is enjoyable but I didn’t find the book has a lasting impression. Several flaws but not too many unsatisfactory parts. I like reading them. It’s an okay—if not rather good—reading experience. It’s not the best book but definitely not the worst book.
4 Stars – ★★★★☆
I loved it. I enjoy reading it and definitely would read it again. Even though the book wasn’t perfect, but I did find them enjoyable and fun to read. Some flaws but definitely will be overlooked. A very good reading experience and very enjoyable. The book can get me flipping the book so quickly and steadily. Part of my all time favourite book.
5 Stars – ★★★★★
Outstanding. Speechless. Beyond adoration. I LOVED it so much!! This book is perfect. This type of book is pretty rare for me, so when I do give one, the book was truly amazing. These books are the type that I could read over and over and wouldn’t get bored. The book exceeds all my expectations. Little minor flaws that barely caught up my attention. Definitely my all time favourite book.
I do use a half star (i.e. I really loved it, but the book somehow wasn’t a perfection, therefore it gets 4.5 stars. Or when the book is kind of meh, but still enjoyable in some parts, it gets 2.5 stars).
Ratings are based on my personal reading experience, so while two books’ rating could be the same, there may be different reasons as to why that is.
No Star – ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
I don’t give a no star. Like books, I don’t believe in no star films or TV series or anime, because there must have some value even if I disliked it.
1 Star – ★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Poor. Terrible. I extremely disliked it. I struggled with this film and tried with all my might to make it through the end. Perhaps I even fell asleep in the middle of the film. I would never in a million years recommend this film at all.
2 Stars – ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
I disliked it. It’s poor. The film made me left horrified. Extremely tempted to not watch it until the end or perhaps I even fall asleep in the middle. Super boring and with no good action, adventure, or romance and worse, story.
3 Stars – ★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
I didn’t like it less than 2 stars. Is it worth to watch? Nope. I don’t think so. Would I watch it again? Definitely not. Boring? Definitely boring. Good story? Not at all. Makes me sleep in the middle of the film? Most likely. Recommend this film? Nope.
4 Stars – ★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆
I didn’t like it but definitely, I didn’t hate it either. Perhaps there are some scenes that I enjoyed but barely. Most scenes are not good and I find it boring. Some of the stories may be good but most of the stories are bad. I wouldn’t recommend this film. I still find this film boring.
5 Stars – ★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆
It was okay. Barely tolerable. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t all that good either. It does have some qualities but still not that I like it very much. Mostly I thought that the film is boring. I didn’t find the film has a lasting impression, for certain. I wouldn’t bother to watch it even for the second time. I wouldn’t recommend this film, but you can try to watch it yourself.
6 Stars – ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
It was okay. Not the best film but definitely not the worst. Some flaws are still there and I can’t overlook it but perhaps can tolerate most of the flaws. Still an okay watching experience. I didn’t know if I would recommend this film, but it’s not wrong if you watch it and tell it yourself.
7 Stars – ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
I liked it. The film is good but there are still many flaws. I enjoy the film in some parts of the film but not all. Some other parts are quite boring that I wanted to just skip them and went to my favourite parts. An okay watching experience but still not good enough.
8 Stars – ★★★★★★★★☆☆
I really, really liked it. I enjoy watching it and definitely would watch it again. Even though the film wasn’t perfect, but I did find them enjoyable and fun to watch. Either it was because the story was actually good or because the actors were my favourites and their acting, as always, were superb. But mostly, it was because of the story. There are some flaws but were able to be overlooked.
9 Stars – ★★★★★★★★★☆
I loved it. I highly recommend this film. The story was greatly amazing, although some minor flaws were there, it was really really minor. I did enjoy the film and would definitely watch it for the second or third or fourth time. The film was worth to watch. It is part of my all time favourite.
10 Stars – ★★★★★★★★★★
Outstanding. Speechless. Beyond adoration. I really, really LOVED it!! This film is perfection. Usually, it was because the combination between a very truly amazing story and my favourite actors and actresses also took part in it. I highly recommend this film, not because of the actors but because of the stories. The film was worth to watch and you wouldn’t regret it at all. I would definitely watch the film over and over and over again without getting bored. It’s definitely my all time favourite.
I also use a half star for this (i.e. I really loved it, but the film somehow wasn’t a perfection, therefore it gets 8.5 stars. Or when the film is kind of meh, but still enjoyable most of the parts, it gets 7.5 stars).
