My Media Log

My career requires me to stay informed about what is happening in the world of entertainment and pop culture. So I consume a considerable amount of media each year. This page is where I keep track and rate it all.

I rate everything on a scale of 1.0 – 10.0.  It’s all completely subjective to my own personal tastes.  So judge accordingly.

  • 10 – Perfection
  • 9 – Excellent
  • 8 – Very good
  • 7 – Good
  • 6 – Not bad
  • 5 – Average
  • 4 – Meh
  • 3 – Yikes
  • 2 – What?
  • 1 – No.

🔥 means I thought it was an exceptionally good piece of content (8.5 or higher)
