Netflix Ratings

According to Netflix they are replacing the star rating system with a thumbs up/down model. This is a good idea as it makes it a whole lot easier in a general sense, instead of debating if it was a 3 star or 4 star movie you just have to decide if you liked it or not. I was one of those people hoping that Netflix would add like half star ratings to pinpoint exactually how I felt about a film. Yet a thumbs up or down seems like a much simpler solution.Netflix is saying that this will lead to better predictions about what shows/movie would be of interest to you. It sounds better as I hardly ever watched what Netflix recommends that I could like based on the show/movie. It’s a nice move but it’s taken them long enough to figure out a better way to rate things.
