*****-Masterwork. Give out around 2-3 per year, usually more often in music than in film.
****-Excellent. A must.
zero-Worthy of disdain. (I think I've only given to 2 films)
The Badfilm scale is the inverse. ***** on the badfilm scale is a film so bad it's indispensable (ie. Turkish Star Wars).
The avg. rating is a little above ** 1/2
