5 to 5.5 stars: Low Average.


5 to 5.75 stars:  Low Average.

These movies are follow genre conventions, but are generally less enjoyable. They tend to be a bit dull in comparison with the films rated more highly. They are definitely an acquired taste. Examples:  Shoot the Living, Pray For the Dead, and Django Meets Sartana.

Many of the Eurowesterns that I am most fond of are found among these movies. A “*” is used to indicate this ‘fondness’.’
