Some things to keep in mind before you start filling out this survey:

  • I want you to be very honest when taking this survey. Judge a film by its content, and not by what it means to you.

  • Think about how you answer the first question. I want you to only rate 4.5 stars when the film is really among the best 25 you've ever seen.

  • Read the descriptions below the star ratings. Don't pick your answer based on stars, but based on those descriptions. Again, be honest.

  • Only select the "Perfect" option when an element truly is perfect. Hint: that hardly ever happens. Be honest and be critical!

  • When you feel like an aspect was done incredibly well, select "Near Perfect." Only when you think it was truly perfect do you select "Perfect."

  • An element can be absent by choice. For example, a director can choose to have no foreshadowing at all, and this may work perfectly for a film. When this happens, it still means the foreshadowing was done well, and you will rate that question accordingly.

  • Remember that 2013 brought us a clean slate when it comes to rating, so don't keep your old rating numbers in mind: they aren't accurate material for comparing anymore.
