New Scoring System

I've been thinking over the last little while that marks out of five don't really cut it anymore as there is too much confusion, e.g. is 3 out of 5 good? It is actually 6 out of 10 which is less flattering. There were only two ways to address this: use half marks or scale up to a base-10 marking system. I'm now going to work on the following scoring structure:

10 - Simply brilliant! Beg, steal or lie to see this!
9 - Very good, highly enjoyable, worth the price.
8 - Quite good and if you can get in cheaper go ahead.
7 - Good entertainment but only for die-hard fans or half price tickets
6 - Okay but too much padding. Tickets must be free or you need to be able to fast forward segments!
5 - One small part is interesting but you are better off hearing that from a friend.
4 - Walk out and don't look back, save your precious time. Nothing of note.
3 - Start to get angry at the waste of money and effort from the creators that could have been better spent doing anything else!
2 - Mercy killings might be a good idea to prevent any future abominations.
1 - CIA use this as part of their "enhanced interegation" torture programme.
