To me, the first thing is story, then comes the rating.

Most of the time I prefer movies with at least 7/10 ratings.

Me too, usually I look for movies rated 7 or higher, unless it's a cult film or a subject that I really want to see. Sometimes I watch a low rated controversial film just to know what all the fuzz is about.

Do you think a better title would be "How Low Will You Go?"?

I seldom pay attention to ratings when choosing films for myself. I am more likely to read reviews from critics whom I normally follow when selecting films. Since I am familiar with these critics preferences, I use their reviews as a gauge of which films I will likely enjoy.

My number is about  an 6.6 or 6.7. Meaning, if I'm looking at a movie I'm curious about and it has a rating lower than 6.6 or 6.7, there needs to be something additionally compelling in order for me to still watch it. So I marked "6" for my answer.

I rarely pay attention to the ratings. My tastes rarely match those of the general public or the critics. I am an Ed Wood fan and consider "Glen or Glenda" and "Bride of the Monster" to be great films with great scripts. (I don't really like "Plan 9 from Outer Space" as I find its plot holes too off-putting). I am often fascinated with obscure and semi-obscure horror films, fantasy, science fiction, and crime. I find many critical darlings to be mediocre, predictable, or suffering from poor writing and acting. I still think "Gladiator" is among the worst films I have ever seen, full of anachronisms, absurd premises, one-dimensional characters, and silly dialogue. And the crowds loved it.
