The Fortress’s Grading Policy

As a review blog, I have to have a fair way of grading all of the content that I watch, read, or play. For the first year of the Fortress’s existence, I basically just ended up winging it, and giving the grade that I believed was fair and just. That being said, I didn’t have a specific system for grading.

However, I knew that couldn’t have lasted for too long. Now, I have created a grading rubric for all types of reviews you’ll see on my blog. I’m hoping that this will invoke more discussion on my posts.

Movie Reviews

Characters: 2 points (Were the characters good?)
Interest Value: 3 points (Was it interesting?)
