    Dear readers of Green-Tea-Movie, welcome to this movie blog. Here, Green-Tea-Movie offers you movie updates and news, movie trailers and stills, and of course the butter-and-bread posts on movie reviews.

    The reason I wrote this because I know people are wondering how movies in Green Tea Movie are rated. Here is how!!


    This blog was first online back in February 2008 to serve as blog for my writing on movie reviews. Over the years, the blog expands into more than just a movie review, when it also includes movie updates, news and rumours, as well as a preview site. Now Green-Tea-Movie has an archive of over 260 posts with more than 120 movie reviews. The person who brings you Green-Tea-Movie is none other than the one writing this right now – Bernard Chung.


    With tonnes of movie reviews, there is a way for Green-Tea-World rates a movie. Rating and reviewing a movie is more than just telling the summary or plot synopsis and rate it as if it is full of entertainment value and some awesome bloody violence and gun-shooting. In fact, it comes more than that, with a technical aspect of story, casts and cinematography.

    From now on, Green-Tea-World will introduce a new way of rating in which particulars as such will be look and can be summarized as such:
    • STORY – screenplay, plot themes, flow and entertainment value
    • CASTS – characterization and character building
    • CINEMATOGRAPHY – camera work, uniqueness and technical aspects
    • EFFECTS – special visual effect and sound effect

    Each of these aspects (above) will be given a star rating from 0.5 to 5.0 stars maximum. Average will be given based on total of the stars given based on the table below:

    Green-Tea-O-Meter which I have put into use since late last year will be transformed into a complex mathematical equation. The reason is because a bad movie has high rating only because of its good special effects. To put that into fair, the Meter will be calculated based on a formula in which a more critical aspect of story and casts will be weighed more.

    Therefore each aspect will be weighed as such:
    • STORY – 40%
    • CASTS – 30%
    • EFFECTS – 15%
    This is the formula:
    GREEN-TEA-O-METER = (story*0.4+casts*0.3+cinematography*0.15+effects*0.15)*4

    It is complex but you don’t have to remember that. Here are some examples you can look on.
