As mass visual entertainment consumers, we judge the quality of a video typically by the number of likes it has or its rating. We believe those aren't enough. One video can have good and bad parts to it, and those bars cannot be captured simply by one metric. We want to add depth to the entertainment experience. We don't simply like or dislike a video, we react to it.
