Mixed (Divisive) 

This rating is used for movies I think have some issues but are worth checking out. Also, this rating applies to movies I feel just won’t appeal to everyone because of some of the movie’s quirks.

Negative (Skip It)

If something is rated negative, it is because it failed to meet any and all expectations. So while you may make it to the end of the film, it is only because you don’t know where the line is. That is the line where perseverance meets fighting for a lost cause.
