To me, a five star match or even a 4 1/2 match is not a great match. It's an epic/legendary match. The highest rating I would give Benoit vs. Finlay would probably be 4 stars. It was an above average, very well wrestled, and intense match up. When it comes to rating matches, I tend to think of the match out of a possible of 100 points. Makes it a lot easier.
Side note, I know Dave Meltzer has given a few matches over five stars. One of which, the 6/95 Misawa/Kobashi vs. Kawada/Taue match. If I'm remembering correctly he gave it 7 1/2 stars.
EDIT: You also can't judge a match from 72 and 89 the same way, much less one from the 00s.
