Because Media Marquee was designed to work with the Apple TV and the Siri Remote entering a normal text-based review wouldn’t be a great experience. That’s where the Pop Factor comes in:
The review exprience is broken down into a number of “factors” that are easy to enter using the Siri Remote:
Results are calculated from these factors and displayed on the movie or shows pages. Additionally, a score is generated and sent to The Movie Database* to be added to their ratings.
You also have the option of rating movies or shows that haven’t been released. This allows Media Marquee to track excitement in uncoming content:
