What is 'Watchability'? Print
Written by Administrator   

Watchability is the score given to repeat viewings of the movie - you can have an action packed movie (for example anything by Jackie Chan) that may not be the best-directed (or acted!) movie, but the stunts are fun and action non-stop that the movie is better than it deserves to be, and also worth a watch when it re-runs on tv.

  Likewise, a thriller-drama or film with a major 'twist' at the end (such as the Sixth Sense, The Village or pretty much anything else by M.Night Shyamalan) may be a 5*star-10/10 movie, but once you know the ending, do you really want to sit through the entire entire movie again?

  The Watchability factor is something to look out for if you've only watched the start of the movie and want to know whether you should stick with it (or perhaps own it), or save yourself some time to do something more constructive - like watching something else!
