    Thanks for the idea! We have certainly discussed this feature, and could implement it if it gathers support here.

    "Same here, I saw most of the recommended movies already. But too long ago to rate accurately."
    and I'm not interested in watching them again anytime soon.

    Very true, we’ve found in our research that this is the case. It would be nice to have a “rating mode” where you can turn the predicted stars off.

    What's the status of this? I've thought about this myself. I don't mind seeing the predicted rating before I watch a movie, but afterwards when I'm ready to rate, the predicted rating, if I'm torn between 4 and 4.5 stars (for example), will often make the decision for me.

    Interesting! We thought that box was mostly useful to our users back in the early 2000s, when ratings stars were a new concept. We could definitely keep this in the interface.

    Do others find this reference info useful?

    as others have said, I'll agree. I'm terrible at being consistent with my ratings. Especially since it could be a few months between visits. I've actually had to create my own system of rating, I have no clue if the OP's idea has been implemented but I don't see any evidence of it.

    The way I have basically chosen to rate my films is that
    0.5:
    1.0: These are movies that offended me in some way. They were just so awful I couldn't even finish watching them. if I saw it in the theater, these are also movies that I watched to the end merely because I couldn't leave in the middle (sunk-cost fallacy, I know)
    1.5:
    2.0:
    2.5: Don't often bother to watch movies I don't expect I'd like, so I haven't put much thought into these. but these are movies that I didn't like but managed to finish.
    3.0: meh. It wasn't a bad movie, wasn't a good movie, I didn't waste my life, but I didn't gain anything either. Considering this is the equivalent of a 5 on a 10 point scale, I may one day revise my ratings and move all the 3s to 2.5s...
    3.5: good, but I don't expect I'll ever watch it again.
    4.0: good, and I'll probably want to see it again. Or maybe it was better than good, but not quite great.
    4.5: I thought the movie was great or even whoa! but I don't think I'll ever watch it again, unless I'm really really blown away and then I'll bump it to a 5
    5.0: I thought the movie was great/brilliant, etc. I was blown away, so much so that I'll probably watch it twice, three times, four times, etc.

    on the other side, I rarely watch movies that I don't like so I haven't put as much thought into it. But if I give a movie a half star or 1, it's because I turned the movie off before I finished it. 1.5-2.5 stars... I don't know. whatever I feel like.
