I don't mind what smitlick does generally because he's good about giving explanations when asked and having been around here long enough I know his tastes well enough to know what to expect from a match based on what star rating he gave it and he rates so many matches that I'd never be able to sit through that I won't begrudge him just posting star ratings and such (particularly in the DVD thread), but yeah when you're coming into the MOTYC thread it is always always always better to have some words about a match.
even if it's just "thought x dragged on too long, and I didn't care for y, though z was a lot of fun" that's immensely preferable to "***1/4" imo
