Movie Quintessence

Movie quintessence measures the purity of movies or complexity of movies based on their genres, subgenres, antagonists and moods. There are several ways this tool can be used. Here is an example of a typical method:

1) Select an ANTAGONIST of your choice using the ANTAGONIST drop-down.

2) Select QUINTESSENTIAL using the ANTAGONST PURITY drop-down.

3) Select ANTAGONIST PURITY using the SORT BY drop-down

4) Press APPLY

The list you get represents the movies considered the most quintessential/typical to your antagonist. These movies featuring the selected antagonist and not much else. The lower you get in the list, the most complex the antagonist list gets for any given movie.

You can reverse this order using the ORDER drop-down. Since they are story compilations, anthology films tend to have more complex lists of antagonists. You can exclude them from the search results using the ANTHOLOGY drop-down.

Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability.
