I dunno, around 3/5?
I don't like the 7 star rating system as I think it makes it hard to pick a number... I'd prefer 5 stars but the ability to give half stars, because the way the numbers translate over with 7 nobody really knows what /5 score theyre giving but it's:
1/7 = 0.7/5
2/7 = 1.4/5
3/7 = 2.1/5
4/7 = 2.9/5
5/7 = 3.6/5
6/7 = 4.3/5
7/7 = 5/5
For example, there are a lot of films I'd want to rate 3, 3.5, 4, and 4.5, but the only choices are 3.6 or 4.3. Most people go for 3.6 when they'd probably quite happily give a film a 4 out of 5.
Then there's the fun of "do I rate these films relative to each other, relative to all past Taranaki ones, or absolutely?" which makes a difference here in Taranaki. I review all the local films, and have to decide whether to benchmark them based on the best local one, or the same way I do since I review a bunch of national ones on the Pyramid thread too. But the couple of other people who review locally may just be basing it on local ones, and then my film gets reviewed by people from all the big fish cities so they're obviously basing it on the quality of all the films they've seen, haha.
Complicated kettle of fish, but I would really really really really prefer 5 stars with an accuracy of half a star.
To answer the original question I think if you manage to get around 3/5 you're doing alright, 4/5 pretty stellar, because of what I just said about the stars, lol. It's easy to float in around 2.9 because a lot of people give 4s for a decent film, 5s for a great one and 6 for an amazing one, with the very rare 7 on occasion.
