    Hi best critics,
    I have developed a site with my movie review videos. http://www.coolmovieguide.com

    Watching movies is one the main thing I enjoy. So why not? :)

    Any fixs or new ideas are most welcomed.

    Cheers,
    devank

    Good call on Batman V Superman. In one word: Unconvincing.

    I agree with this one. The most boring movie I have seen in a while.

    Regarding the website, nice layout. Very simple and clean. The colours work well and the ratings is seen very quickly. Nice work!

    I patiently waited. Even after closing the website and re-opening it again, it is still loading more than 15 seconds for me. which is a looooong time.. I should actually add that to my first world problems.

    I like the design and layout but I like the content more :). What were your thoughts on Suicide Squad? That was a big disappointment!

    Yes... It is a graphic heavy site. I'll see if I can move to a faster server. Possibly I need to optimise the site too.

    Sims... we need a unlike button!
    Yes. I take your point...

    wow... that's a huge compliment! Thanks.

    Just as feedback
    Had no problems loading;
    Guessed the site ratings were out of 5 as there's nothing above;
    Couldn't work out why the ratings were as they were or what they mean;
    Graphics looked good;
    Link to Trailer would be a bonus;

    I didn't bother watching Suicide Squad. I try to do most hyped movies. Each movie takes a bit of time and money to create. There are many steps from start to finish.

    The site looks very good but the rating system is non-intuitive & I couldn't find where you explain it.

    It seems a range of 1-4 is used...? That means an average (halfway) rating would get a 2.5 but that is not half of 4..... Honestly, a rating system of 1-5 or 1-10 is more intuitive & widely understood. BTW, I assumed 4 is max rating due to that being highest viewer input rating...

    For me, a review site's rating system & rationale for that rating is crucial.

    Otherwise nice site.

    I have moved it a faster server.
    Speed test used to be upload_2016-10-13_16-34-27.png .
    Now upload_2016-10-13_16-34-53.png

    That shows a bit of improvement. Now I need to work on other matters to make it faster loading.

    Great.. I can see the improvement in loading time alright..
    My next comment is similar to Redwing. The orange circle around the ratings doesn't match the number if it is based on a 5 out of 5 rating. i mean 2.5 rating should indicate that half of the circle should be orange right? Or am I just looking at it wrong?

    Made few changes to bring the loading time by 4-5 times. upload_2016-10-15_12-33-51.png
    Still not passing your 8 sec rule... but it is a heavy graphic site. Going to leave it at this.
