Entertainment Weekly Movie Rating Widget

I thought the Entertainment Weekly movie rating widget was pretty cool. Much, much better than your typical “five stars” rating gadget or goodness gracious a drop down menu. This one is fun to use.

  1. Wow, that just works really well now, doesn’t it?

    I like the familiarity of the rating system and how it provides a “real world” rating compared to the pundits. It’s engaging, dynamic, simple to understand and non-threatening.

    Thanks for posting this. It’s given me something to ponder regarding my own little project.

  2. I like it, but I don’t see it as “much, much better.” In fact, I like the stars better. One of the things I dislike about this widget is if you’re dragging the slider and you move the mouse down a bit it text-selects the picture below (in Firefox). Weird that the focus can escape the widget.
