Stars, Explained

From time to time, I’ll review something—a film, a TV program, a book, a beverage, or a piece of food—with stars.

I’m a fan of simplicity: the lowest rating is one star and the highest is three stars.

Here’s what each star-rating means:

Stars Meaning Recommendation
It was an overall positive experience that I recommend for anyone.
It was an overall forgettable experience. Why did I bother writing about it in the first place?
It was an overall terrible experience that I recommend avoiding.

I prefer this to a five-star scale because I am not confident enough in the difference between a four-star thing and a five-star thing. It’s either good or it’s meh.
