My personal grading system for film. It is constructed to place a greater emphasis on artistic value and faith. A very broad explanation:
Timeless (100) Movie will always be looked back on as a classic throughout history.
A+ (97-99) Film of utmost Excellence. Possible generational greatness, but overall it is one of the best.
A (93-96) Film of Excellence, highly regarded, no flaws in major areas of concern.
A- (90-92) Film of Excellence with few flaws.
B+ (87-89) Very Enjoyable Film with some flaws which may include scenes/language better left out of the movie.
B (83-86) Enjoyable movie. Average at best.
B- (80-82) Slightly above satisfactory.
C+ (77-79) Satisfactory movie. Some nobility but issues with the overall film.
C (73-76) Satisfactory film. Issues compounded. Has some decency and substance to it that may be worth viewing.
C- (70-72) Less than satisfactory. Film contains at best one element that has a decent meaning to it.
D (60-70) A failure. Possibly not unwatchable but not necessarily worth watching.
F (0-59) An utmost failure. Not worth wasting your time.
