So what makes us at Go,See,Talk tick? Well, for those of you who have read our reviews, and are scratching your head about how we grade films, don’t worry, there is a method behind the madness.
Our specific rating system takes a cue from that brainiac Aristotle, and it’s based on the dramatic theory he documented in his work Poetics. We’ve narrowed those 11 principles down to 4 key criteria and use them to evaluate films (New Releases and films in our Off the Shelf series).
Using the following 4 categories CHARACTER, PLOT, MELODY and SPECTACLE we combine them to create what we’re calling the “QuadCard“. Everything is graded on a 1 to 4 scale and together it contributes to an overall cohesive “report card” score. So you don’t even have to read our reviews (we don’t blame you, we can ramble), just check out the graphic to see what we think.
At the end of the day, we are movie fanatics sounding off about most things that the world cinema has to offer – interesting casting news, sweet (and not so sweet) trailers, movie reviews, interviews, and our very own FourScore series which focuses on film scores and the composers behind them.
In regards to anything we comment on, (little disclaimer here) we want to clarify we are not critics…well Andrew and Bill are, but we each have our own opinions on what works for us, and what does not.
