CinemaScore is a site that rates movies on a scale of A+ to F.

Why It's Rotten

  1. It says it ranks movies from A+ to F, but most of the time it is actually A+ to B. Only a total of 18 movies has the F grade.
  2. And speaking of rating movies A+ to B, it pretty much rates every bad movie at least a B.
  3. They treat the C grade (which is usually average) a bad grade, which might be why movies often don't get this rating.
  4. Every good movie gets more than deserved. Not that's a very bad thing, but it does show more favoritism to them.
  5. It calls itself Hollywood's benchmark, with no proof.
  6. There is no link to reviews, so you can't see what people have said.
  7. On the "About Us" page, it says it give moviegoers the choice to say their own opinions, without critics, when something that may not be perfect, but is better than this exists, just doesn't do it on a grade scale.
  8. Speaking of that, it also said it is a tool to rate movies, like it was the only thing like that, when there are better things like this and even more terrible things like this exist too.
  9. All the "Press" is, is a bunch of articles, not revolving around news.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. It rates most movies good.
  2. Although rare, it actually gives some movies less than a B.
  3. They style of the site is okay.
