We present a system for creating online reviews and ratings, based on Semantic Web technologies. This approach overcomes many of the limitations of conventional reviewing and rating systems on the web, such as: a closed world in terms of what can be reviewed, poor integration with reviews or data from other sources, and the inability to aggregate reviews from known and trusted individuals. We detail how the system overcomes these issues, and conclude with an outline of ongoing and future work that exploits its benefits.
