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?

People like you are insufferable. You took what he said and just asserted he would want more. Why? Those are your words. How would it affect you if they added more ratings? You're rating options are still present.

You could describe my ratings as following:
-10 stars: Excellent! I could watch it over and over again.
 
9 stars: Almost perfect. I really enjoyed this one.
 
8 stars: It's really good. I would recommend everything from 8+ stars.
 
7 stars: Good. I would watch it again in the future if I had to.
 
6 stars: It's not bad but I won't watch it again.
 
5 stars: Just average, really nothing special.
 
4 stars: Below average, a waste of time.
 
3 stars: Mediocre. They made an effort but they should give it up.
 
2 stars: It's really bad but I saw worse and that's not a compliment.
 
1 star: Absolute garbage! I wished I never saw it and I want to sue the director to have wasted my time. A refund is not enough, I want compensation.

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?
