Movie Ratings

If you listen to our podcast, you know that we rate films on a scale of zero to five “Pamela Voorhees Heads.” A film with zero heads should be avoided at all costs, while a film with a perfect five is a must-see. We recommend checking out anything with a rating of 2.5 or higher.

When we have guests on the show, their ratings are included and weighted the same as our own.

We didn’t apply ratings to some films in our very early days. Sorry about that. Some of those have been addressed retroactively in later episodes – which is reflected in the rating on this page.

Films are listed and updated alphabetically (omitting words like “A, “An,” The,” etc.).
