So what's that? Five Stars PLUS? Five Stars TURBO? Five Stars MEGA? Five Stars ALL THE WAY TO ELEVEN?

If there's no higher rating then Five Stars, then Five Stars is, to the person giving it out, perfection. They can go no higher.

There's no reason to place an unattainable end of a scale based on an ideal of perfection, so rating a match out of five with five not really existing is silly.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Why come here and moan about us dishing out star ratings? It's something we enjoy doing, not hurting anyone. We don't complain about you blogging, where you dish out star ratings for movies.

no movie is perfect.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I wasn't moaning. I don't mind star ratings. I never said I did. I simply stated that I would never give a match Five Stars because of my nihilistic view on all forms of art. This opinion was then challenged. I therefore explained my point of view and asked for one of you to explain yours.

No one did. What a great discussion.

I will now direct you to the touchstone method of criticism, most notably used by Matthew Arnold.
