With the HBO and Cinemax free preview this weekend, I'm looking to record some movies. If you pull up the info, each movie is rated with stars, I've seen * up to *** and also **+. I have no idea how many stars this is out of or what the plus sign means. Does anyone know?

Maximum is four stars (****). A "+" is equal to 1/2 star.
Example: **+ indicates a rating of two and one-half stars.

This is a consensus of critics rating. They can vary up to 1.5 stars.
**** See it again! Hitchcock, Kubrick, or other classic.
***+ See it if you cannot recite the plot.
*** A good view.
**+ Pretty good.
** Average to dull, kill some time.
*+ Only if you are desperate.
* The critic walked out.

My take. It’s a two-pong rating:

Men:
4 Stars: Excellent, a lot of action explosions etc, i.e. Gladiator, The Replacement Killers
3 Stars: Very good, some minor technical issues, lighting, direction etc.
2 Stars: So-so, bad acting, slow script,
1 star: Stinker, slow and boring plot i.e. Under the Tuscan Sun, the Hours

Women:

4 Stars: Excellent, no explosions or senseless violence i.e. Under the Tuscan Sun, the Hours
3 Stars: very good, but could have been slightly better: Bridges of Madison County
2 Stars: It was ok, movie had some violence and some explosions:
1 Star: Stinker, way to violence, senseless killing, i.e. Gladiator, The Replacement Killers

I would have to adjust your ratings just a bit

4 Stars- Lots of action, suspense, great PQ, but it must have lots of exposed BOOBs to be a true 4 star for men
