Does anybody have a good system for rating photos in iPhoto or some other 0-5 stars rating system?

I have a bunch of pictures sitting in an iPhoto library, starting from when I first received a digital camera in 2001. I am a mix of digital pack-rat and scorched earth digital cleaning techniques, and I want to split the difference by getting myself to at least get rid of the really crap photos (incorrectly focused, horribly blurry, THUMB), and rate the rest.
To that end, I was wondering if anybody has developed a totally awesome rating system for themselves or others based on something more concrete than "Uhh, I guess this is better than a 2, maybe?" I want a rating system where I could relatively painlessly be able to decide among the different ratings, and end up with a consistent system of ratings for 10 years of photos. I am looking to minimize subjective decisions (perhaps except for a 5 star rating for "I think this photo is one of the best I've ever taken" or something). Publicly posted on the internet or your own personal system that you love both welcome!
