IMDB should allow for half stars when rating. Sometimes I really want to rate a movie a 7.5 or 8.5!

I agree and I made a thread saying the same. Point 5 ratings (as well as being able to rate a film zero) are a must

I agree. I feel like the reviews shouldn't have to be 10 lines either. Some people don't have that much to say about movies sometimes.

Whilst I understand where you are coming from - so often I would love to do a half star in the 10 star rating system.  And just because IMDB system is twice as good as Netflix, it does 't mean it cannot be improved on.

I support this idea, and hope they put it in effect one day.

I do support .5 star adjusted ratings too, for what it's worth.

I was going to suggest the same thing and I realized that I was not alone. I definitely support your idea! Sometimes it is very hard to decide between 7 or 8, and the movie is exactly a 7.5 for me.

If they allow us to use the half points, it will also bring dynamism to the lists, such as 'Top Rated Movies'.

I also often face this problem. I want to give the moving a rating of 7.5 for example, now I am forced to give it either a 7 or an 8. 8 seems too much and 7 would be to bad. Most of the times I go for the higher rating. In my example I saw that the average rating of the movie was really a 7.5 :-) (Beverly HIlls Cop (1984)).

And if you get a 7.5 rating will you think that is too high or maybe not high enough and want a 7.25 rating and a 7.75 rating as well?

I'll respectfully vote "no."  I find it difficult to be internally consistent with my own ratings even with 10 choices,  my brain would melt if I tried to fine tune them further.  But I could stick to integers even if halfs are added, so I'll wish you good luck!

I have an idea I think its important to this site, I suggest to you to make the rating of the user for each half star not increase for each star, for example if i want to rate any movie or series 7.5/10  i can give it 7.5/10 instead of 8/10 or 7/10 to make the rating has more accuracy

This, seems to me, a silly idea. Seriously, you have 10 ratings. Why expand it to 20 ratings. Can you say what the difference in a film would be between 7.5, 8 and 8.5?

I made those same comments. But after merging they were lost.
IMDb already is at a half rating system. Everybody else is on the 5Star system.
An IMDb vote of 7 IS A 3 1/2 Star rating!!!
