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[]

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.


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) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class film articles) A-Class article 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-Class article B

List (adds articles to Category:List-Class film articles)  List 
SIA (for set index articles; adds articles to Category:SIA-Class film articles) SIA-Class article 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

Core articles[]

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 orial whim. This work is concentrated at the Core department of this WikiProject.

Requests for assessment[]

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 or 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 ors 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[]

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • America 3000: I'm a student or 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)
    • C-class indeed. Your work is appreciated. — Bilorv (talk) 23:39, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • 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 ing, 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)
  • Inauguration of the CommonwealthHello! I've made considerable s to this page and believe it at minimum meets a start class criteria. Cheers! Deathbydecaf (talk) 02:05, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
  • 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 s. Thank you! Dirkymumu (talk) 14:48, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
  • 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. DoingItForTheCr (talk) 14:04, 29 May 2021 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • Ghost Messenger has been ed 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)
  • 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)
  • @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)
  • The Night (2020 film) - I expanded this article with a plot summary and some reviews; it's currently at Stub-class. Isi96 (talk) 14:25, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
  • @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)
  • @Isi96: A more solid C-class, needs production details. Kingsif (talk) 20:14, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • Article received a B-class assessment from Tpbradbury on 19 August 2021. Msoul13 (talk) 14:23, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
