First of all, no movie is flawless
and second of all I watched a lot of really good movies recently, that's why there are some high ratings here.
There surely are a lot of factors that play a role when rating a movie, like obviously and probably most importantly the story itself, also the acting, the directing and so on..
So far there are 'only' 14 out of approximately 125 movies that I've rated 10/10 (on IMDb) which is not that much I guess.
Sometimes I have no idea how to rate a certain movie like 'A Clockwork Orange' or '2001 A Space Odyssey', which I watched last night.
So when I do rate a movie I have a general feeling about the movie and I think that's the main (or only?) factor actually.
Those are the movies I've rated 10/10 on IMDb (I might also add the LOTR trilogy, haven't done it yet for whatever reason) and most of you would probably agree that those are pretty damn good movies, to get back to your question, I think that "10/10 movies" are those who make you go "wooow" because of a certain brilliant sometimes yet simple idea, like in the Truman Show, Inception, Rear Window or 12 angry men, and where this idea is equally brilliant converted into a movie.
I think that it's all about the idea and about the execution of the idea, but movies don't have to have a brilliant concept, sometimes a beautiful or heartfelt story like Forrest Gump or The Pianist when executed as masterful as they were, are enough to create a 10/10 movie for me.
Also I should probably mention that at one point in time I started rating movies, I haven't rated the movies I watched before I started to rate.
About The Matrix now, The Matrix is obviously one of the most influential SciFi movies of all time and in my opinion one of the very best.
It has an intense story, that is not only very interesting but also deeply philosophical, so the idea is great and the execution equally as good, i my opinion.
I hope you now understand a little more of how I rate movies, I hope I didn't write too much [emoji51].
I'd also be interested to know how you rate movies if you don't do it like I do it.
Yeah also HAPPY NEW YEAR y'all!
And also THERE'S A NEW SHERLOCK EPISODE VERY VERY SOON!!
