Rating the films this weekend reminded me ... I need to think of a new system of rating. The problem with the letter grades is that it connotates something worse than a film might be. I don't want to add plusses and minuses, because sooner or later you're working with a fifteen point system. What's the difference between a B-minus and a C-plus? That's a pretty fine line. In addition, It's hard for me to reconcile giving a film like No Country for Old Men, which on original viewing I found a little less than outstanding-enough for an A, the same B as 21, which I found better than the expected C. I'm not sure that works.
If anyone has ideas, please let me know.
