bigWOWO’s Rating System

When I read or see an Asian American book, movie, or artistic work, I may review it.  See them here.  My policy is that I give unbiased reviews, based only on the quality of the work and its place in the context of racial relations as I see it.  Some bloggers review only to promote; I blog to promote but also to offer unbiased critical examination of important Asian American works.  To understand my views on the reviewed work, please read the entire review.  However, to make things easier, I have also created a system to simplify my recommendation.  For works that I do not recommend, I’ll just say that I don’t recommend them.  For works that I do recommend, here is the rating system:

Asian American Gold:  This is the highest level for my reviews.  A Gold rating means:

a) The work was enjoyable.  I had trouble putting it down.

b) The work pushes the dialogue on Asian American culture in a positive manner.

c) This work meets or exceeds basic WOWO requirements for intellectual and artistic quality.

Asian American Silver: This is the second highest level for my reviews.  A Silver rating means:

a) The work was enjoyable.  I had trouble putting it down.

b) The work gives us something to talk about, although not necessarily in a positive manner.

c) This work either meets WOWO requirements for intellectual and artistic quality, OR it was titillating and trashy enough for me to keep reading.

Asian American Bronze: This is the third highest level for my reviews.  A Bronze rating means:

a) The work wasn’t bad.  At times I struggled, but I made it through.

b) There’s adequate exposure for either Asian American actors/actresses or fictional characters that makes it worth supporting–if for nothing else, only because we need to support our peeps.
