So I just watched Monsters on Netflix streaming.  A quite strong indie SF film that is a little too indie and not enough sci-fi for its own premise.  Clearly wishes it was District 9/Cloverfield, but overall decent effort, especially for a film whose entire crew fit into a single van and whose director did all the special effects himself with "off-brand" Adobe Premier.

I watched the film because Netflix thought I would like it by 3.5/5 stars. They were absotively spot-on; this film fell exactly into the grey between the decent-and-enjoyable-but-nothing-special 3 and the excellent-not-quite-perfect-but-eminently-recommendable 4.

But Netflix doesn't let you rate things by half-stars. That is a privilege that they reserve purely for themselves.

Why this is, at least, a useability problem )
