Just a Few Things (Site Update)

Image
Hello to All of My Readers,

I hope that this day is finding you all well.

I just wanted to give everyone an update on what is going here at The Big Movie House.

First, I would like to thank each and every person who finds their way here. I am very grateful for the readers to pass through as well as the readers who keep coming back. I was looking at my stats the other day and I am very happy with the traffic that we have been getting.

Second, I am doing away with the score cards. While I think that they look good and get the point across, they have become very cumbersome to use. They never go where I want them to and I think that it hurts the look of the review in the end.

Instead I will be using a number system. The scores will stay the same: 4-great, 3-good, 2-ok, 1-crap, and 0-waste of time. There will also be .5s in between as well, so you will see a film score with a 3.5. The scores will also be placed right next to the subject being graded. So you will see:
