About The Movie Referee

As Movie Referee it is my duty to ensure the rules of fair play are adhered to all times. In order to do this a movie needs to be broken down in to 3 rounds

  1. Plot
  2. Characters
  3. Overall Enjoyment

Throughout these rounds the Referee will be looking out for certain elements that are deemed necessary to determine either a success or failure. These elements include

  1. Creativity
  2. Appreciation
  3. Effort

If all of these elements are satisfied, a movie will be given a 10 for the round, if not, 3 points will be deducted per losing element. For example if a film fulfils 2 of 3 of the criteria in Round 1, it will be rewarded a minimum of 6 out of 10.

How is a winner/loser determined?

  • In order to claim victory, a movie must score a culminated total of no lower than 15/30.
  • If a movie scores 10/10 in all 3 rounds, it will be deemed winner via TKO
  • If a movie scores 1/10 in a minimum of 2 rounds, a KO will be declared before round 3 begins.

This is still a work in progress and elements are still liable to change over the coming months.

However for the time being, these are the rules a movie must adhere to!
