8mm/16mm/35mm/70mm indicates that what I saw was a film print.
DP indicates that what I saw was a Digital Projection in a theatre.
3D indicates that I saw a theatrical presentation and was encouraged to watch the picture while wearing some sort of special lens(es) ( Polarized, Anaglyph, ChromaDepth, Pulfrich, Prismatic, et al). If I saw a feature-length film in 3D at home, the title of the film will be succeeded by “[3D]”.
– All others were from Blu-Rays, downloads, television, etc.
– A plus sign (+) at the beginning of a line indicates that I had seen this film before.

– I only assign numerical ratings to films that are at least 40 minutes long.
– “Inc.” in lieu of a rating indicates that I don’t think that this screening was an accurate enough presentation of the film for me to make a quality judgment, either because their weren’t English subtitles for a foreign language film, or the projector broke/sound cut out/the print burned, or an ass in the theatre distracted me with too much talking/popcorn eating, etc.
– I don’t log W/Os.
– I do log short films (≤ 39min.), sans ratings, but only those viewed either from a film print or in an official theatrical context (i.e., where there is published documentation that the screening of this particular film took place). Why these conditions? The main reason I never logged shorts before 2015 is that my OCD has prevented me from distinguishing between short films, television commercials, music videos, random viral clips, etc.; I didn’t want to log everything, and I didn’t want to be arbitrarily discriminating what I logged and what I didn’t. This (admittedly still arbitrary) fix allows me to narrow it down to only short films proper (whatever that means, etc.), which will almost exclusively consist of avant-garde works. These films will appear below in italics.

And that translates to:

A+	9.4 - 10.0	[Top 10 of All Time contender]
A	8.6 - 9.3	[Masterpiece]
A-	7.8 - 8.5	[Pretty great; Near-masterpiece]
B+	7.0 - 7.7	[Kinda great; Contender for Top 10 of its year]
B	6.2 - 6.9	[Has a special something]
B-	5.4 - 6.1	[Solid]
C+	4.6 - 5.3	[Doesn't arouse any particularly strong emotions either way]
C	3.8 - 4.5	[Useless; Mediocre; Significantly flawed]
C-	3.0 - 3.7	[What a failure]
D+	2.2 - 2.9	[What-a-failure with cheese]
D	1.4 - 2.1	[Grating]
D-	0.6 - 1.3	[Offensively horrific; Horrifically offensive]
F	0.0 - 0.5	[Worst of All Time consideration]
