Grading criteria

The dancer and choreographer Agnes de Mille once said, “Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows, we guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.” Just as de Mille once stated I, Kim Anehall, will leap into the dark trying to give an independent and fair effort to appreciate the art that is created in the world of cinema. This effort will be depicted through a 10-point scale where one will reflect as the lowest while 10 will be considered the highest. Nonetheless, all grading and reviews at Cinematica will, unfortunately, be affected by some subjective views since it is next to impossible to erase values, morals, and beliefs that we have obtained over years of existence. However, what is valued the most at Cinematica is the artist’s free creativity, integrity, and wisdom shared with the audience through his or her personal approach to convey their story.

10 – Brilliant film with wisdom, integrity, and artistic value. The screenplay is technically tied together with great acting, cinematography, editing, sound, special effects, visual signs, and visuals syntax making the final product a complete story. (Brilliant film experience.) The perfect 10’s are listed under Brilliant Films.

9 – Great film with wisdom, integrity, and artistic value. The screenplay is technically tied together with great acting, cinematography, editing, sound, special effects, visual signs, and visuals syntax making the final product a complete story. However, one facet that ties the film together to a complete story is slightly flawed. (Brilliant film experience.)

8 – Good film with wisdom, some integrity and artistic value. The screenplay is technically tied together with great acting, cinematography, editing, sound, special effects, visual signs, and visuals syntax making the final product a complete story.

7 – Good film with wisdom and artistic value.
