Fractional Star Ratings On Netflix
See more » Netflix
I’ve always been a bit irked that I can’t rate movies with fractional stars on Netflix.
After thinking about it for a bit my experience in survey research made me realize that the timidity of many people would probably lead to perhaps many of them opting for 2.5 stars from fear of stating an opinion.
Nonetheless I watch too many movies that I can’t really say I like or dislike. They are acceptably mediocre: I know that before I get them. They satisfy a specialized urge that makes quality less relevant than usual.
