Smiles and Frowns

As I mentioned at the end of my Ghost in the Shell review I am starting a new feature on my blog reviews. Instead of just giving a grade I am going to give each film a smile or frown. I’ve realized that grades mean different things to different people so this will be a simple way of saying good or bad- kind of like the old thumbs up or down from Siskel and Ebert. Then I will give my grade so you will know how strong a smile/frown it is.

I even had these amazing graphics made by my friend Joan at Bitsy Creations.

I thought I would let you know of 2017 new releases I’ve seen so far which are smiles and frowns.

      1. I love how Get Out and The Lego Batman Movie are so high up on your smiles list because those are my favorites of the year.

      1. Excellent. Your avatar is cute. And as long as you still give in-depth reviews and continue using the letter grade system, I don’t mind also looking at the smile/frown emblem to get a clear grasp of your overall opinion.
