Default 'Weight' of review ratings

Hi,

It would be great if the following feature could be included in GARS (or as a mod or something).

Small background how I'll implement GARS :
I will use GARS to review DVD's.

They will be reviewed on a couple of points: movie, audio quality, video quality, extra's,etc.

What happens now, is that if I give max ratings to all points, but a low rating on extra's, the percentage/conclusion is too low.
What I want is that some of the ratings, should have a higher weight in giving the conclusion percentage below the ratings.

Example :

Movie rating counts for 40%
Audio quality rating counts for 25%
Video quality rating counts for 25%
Extra's rating counts for 10%

Will this be possible ?

I hope I made myself clear

Why doesnt that work if you give say 5-10 on Movie rating, 3-7 on audio, 1-3 on extra ratings?

It will work, but it might be a bit unclear for the users, so I would prefer the rating weight. But it's a good suggestion, hadn't even thought about that !
