That's right folks, the word in question here is "Watchability". This word would become our "Citizen Kane" to the movie world. It was a game changer. No more were we going to let pretentious critics bully us around and tell us why something wasn't good enough. We knew the movies you were supposed to like and the ones that were deemed unworthy. But we quickly realized that there was plenty to take away from these "lesser movies". If we enjoyed something, we shouldn't be afraid to say so. And we didn't think anyone else should either. After that, it became a goal of ours to get word out on this; to become a "critic" for the everyman.
Basically, we define "Watchability" as this: The ability for a movie to be re-watched a certain amount of times and not lose its effectiveness; how easy it is to pop something in and enjoy it whenever you want. (i.e. "Gone With the Wind" is technically a very good movie. But it's long and boring. I'm not wanting to pop that in and watch it everyday. But something like, say, "Hook" has a great watchability rate, and thus ranks much higher in this aspect, and should be rewarded as such). Movies that I'm going to continue to watch throughout my life garner more appreciation from me than something I can respect but then for all intents and purposes won't ever watch again. This is something severely lacking in the movie world and we're here to make it right.
So there you have it, world. Slackers Selection Productions' very own "Watchability". You read it here first. Feel free to use it and aid you in your future movie analyses. Hopefully it can help you as much as it's helped us.
