Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Film! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Film articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Film}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Film articles by quality, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Frequently asked questions Edit

How can I get my article rated?
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Film WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
What if I don't agree with a rating?
You can list it in the section for assessment requests below, and someone will take a look at it. Alternately, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
Aren't the ratings subjective?
Yes, they are, but it's the best system we've been able to devise; if you have a better idea, please don't hesitate to let us know!

If you have any other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.

Instructions Edit

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Film}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Film|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class film articles)  FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class film articles)  A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class film articles)  GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class film articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class film articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class film articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class film articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class film articles)  FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class film articles) List
SIA (for set index articles; adds articles to Category:SIA-Class film articles) SIA

For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class film articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class film articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class film articles) Draft
FM (for featured media only; adds pages to Category:FM-Class film articles)  FM
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class film articles) File
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class film articles) Portal
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class film articles) Project
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class film articles) Redirect
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class film articles) Template
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class film articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed film articles) ???

Core articles Edit

In lieu of a moribund importance rating, the project has deprecated the importance parameter in favor of a targeted drive towards "core"-type articles as determined by consensus in external lists and polls rather than individual editorial whim. This work is concentrated at the Core department of this WikiProject.

Film grading scheme Edit

Requests for assessment Edit

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below. (Note that this is not required; any editor may assess or re-assess an article on their own, if acting in good faith.)

If you assess an article, please strike it off so that other editors will not waste time going there too. Comments are not mandatory and any should be left at the article's talk page; the list below will be wiped periodically.

If you are interested in more extensive comments on an article, please list it for peer review instead.

New requests Edit

  • Assessed C-class. I was a little put off by the excessive red links, with the issue being that there's a whole section that basically relies on knowledge of these things which aren't explained and don't have an article to go away and read. The prose style is also sub-par. Enough detail for C-class. Kingsif (talk) 12:10, 18 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • In order: B, C, C. Those not meeting B-class is mostly because of either not enough or too much coverage in relation to the broadness criterion. Kingsif (talk) 12:24, 18 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • America 3000: I'm a student editor and selected this page as my main project. I've made extensive revisions to the article. Prior to my work the article was considered a Stub. I believe it is now at minimum a 'start', if not 'C Class' criteria. WillKBeatty (talk) 17:42, 24 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • LuckyChap Entertainment I have added a considerable amount of information to this article, creating new sections and adding important detailed information, backed up with plenty of citations, so I don't think it should be rated as a stub class article anymore... Thanks! --Tasrockstar (talk) 01:13, 25 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • The Waiting City - Hello! I've added various new sections to this stub article and would love if someone could take a look at it to revise its assessment rating. When I first started editing, it was a Stub-class article but I believe it could now be classified under a new assessment rating. I have added new sections and included many citations throughout it as well. I would greatly appreciate any feedback on the article's talk page too. Thank you! Kaexkae (talk) 12:01, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Inauguration of the CommonwealthHello! I've made considerable edits to this page and believe it at minimum meets a start class criteria. Cheers! Deathbydecaf (talk) 02:05, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Made in China (2009 film) Hi, I'm a uni student that is expanding on this article for a class. It is currently considered a stub and I would greatly appreciate a rating assessment or just any feedback regarding my edits. Thank you! Dirkymumu (talk) 14:48, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Herostratus (film) The article is currently listed as a stub class article and the original article had very little information as the film is quite old. I have updated it with significantly more sources and information regarding the film's production, reception, and the themes. Any review or advice for improving it further would be appreciated, but as is I think it should be beyond a stub class article. DoingItForTheCredit (talk) 14:04, 29 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • The King (2017 American film) Hi there- my article has been rated as a 'C class' article but is currently under review for 'B Class' status. I was wondering if someone could please review it for me. Thank you so much! Husseyp (talk) 06:15, 1 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Ghost Messenger has been edited a lot past two years and is ready for reassessment. Ppg409 (talk) 5:59, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
  • Oyster Farmer appears to be suitable for upgrading from a stub.Michaelwallace22 (talk) 00:06, 13 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain - I expanded the article a bit; it's currently ranked at Start-class, but I believe it could be C-class. Isi96 (talk) 04:45, 17 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • @Isi96: I've left this at start-class because of the lack of sufficient summary and the massive coverage imbalance. It reads more like a "Controversy of Roadrunner" article but missing enough detail about the background of the film even for that focus. Kingsif (talk) 20:14, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • @Isi96: Assessed at C-class, but the plot is too long, it's nearly 1000 words at the moment. It's also a sandwiched article: plot and reviews present, but nothing substantial in-between. Kingsif (talk) 20:14, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Moulin Rouge! - Currently at C-class. I made extensive revisions and expanded the article with the "Analysis" section. Please assess against B-Class criteria. Thanks! Msoul13 (talk) 14:23, 22 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • @Arcahaeoindris: Interesting subject, some minor areas that you can improve, but is all right, with some development I could see this as B-class (though C for now), many thanks!. VickKiang (talk) 01:13, 28 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Done@Mtjannetta: At minimum, it's C-class, and I assessed it as such. It could be B-class with some minimal work, most specifically some additional citations in some areas. I did not {{cn}} every instance of this, but by example, statements such as "This would be so-and-so's last appearance in a Johnson film" or "their string of successes and box-office magic had come to a close" - these type of statements need a source. But other than some minor elements like that, I think it meets most criteria for B-class. ButlerBlog (talk) 16:38, 18 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Whole (film) had a stub-rating, I added some information and and additional sources, however someone else should have a look if this is enough to change the status. Greetings Llydia (talk) 11:06, 15 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I Was a Spy rated as a Stub but more content has been added. HerbertGP36 (talk) 18:24, 19 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Cast a Dark Shadow rated as Start but more content has been added since it was last assessed. HerbertGP36 (talk) 17:24, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Khartoum (film) currently rated as Start but more content has been added since it was last assessed. HerbertGP36 (talk) 17:50, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • The Lost King (film) currently rated as Start but a lot of content has been added since it was assessed in March. ABologna22 (talk) 09:41, 26 October 2022 (BST)
  • Kisapmata currently rated as C-class, has not yet been checked against criteria of B-Class. 08:54, 22 November 2022 (UTC)
  • Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure needs to be reassessed. Over time, it has been expanded and largely improved by me. It will either be B or C-class, to be honest. The only things that will need to be improved are sources and some information that needs to be added with a reliable source, including the cult following of the film from the internet if necessary. Otherwise, it should be reassessed as soon as possible. Aubreeprincess (talk) 17:04, 10 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • The Non-Stop Flight is currently rated as Start class but substantial content has been added since it was last assessed on January 21, 2020. Michael Jannetta (talk) 00:22, 19 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Pure Japanese needs to be reassessed. It rated as C-class when it was published in November, 2022. Since then I have made many improvements based on good articles. Murasakihitsuji (talk) 09:11, 27 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
