Rating System

"The star rating system is relative, not absolute. When you ask a friend if Hellboy is any good, you're not asking if it's any good compared to Mystic River, you're asking if it's any good compared to The Punisher. And my answer would be, on a scale of one to four, if Superman is four, then Hellboy is three and The Punisher is two. In the same way, if American Beauty gets four stars, then [The United States of] Leland clocks in at about two." -Roger Ebert, the same applies to our rating system

5- Why are you still sitting there? Go see it now!

4- Worthy of a matinee.
3- See it in the dollar theatre.
2- Wait to NetFlix it.
1- Don’t waste your time.
0- I wanted to gouge my eyes out.

About Us

Brandon and Patricia are two friends who are completely unqualified to be film critics. Neither of them has any formal training or experience, but they both really like movies and have seen a lot of them. Brandon was briefly a film studies major and barely passed an Introduction to Cinema class, and he once read a book by Roger Ebert. Patricia did drama in high school, and she has extensive experience using NetFlix. Despite these shortcomings, all of the reviews are enjoyable and quite insightful.

Other than this, Brandon and Patricia are college students who attend a movie every Tuesday night (since that is student discount night). A complicated system of rules exist to determine who gets to determine what movie is seen each week, but these rules are disclosed only on a “need to know” basis.

Tuesday Movie Night, the outing, was established in Fall 2003. Tuesday Movie Night, the blog, was established in Fall 2005.

We hope you enjoy the reviews. Leave comments to let us know what you think.
