Movie Rating System

For all those of you who've asked (ie. no one), I have a real down to earth and easily understood movie review system. The rating is simply a cash amount. The cash amount is how much money is worth spending on the movie. You can spend that money by going to the theatre or buying the dvd or renting it or whatever. Here's how that system works for a few example movies:

Fight Club: $15
Metropolis: $3
Jaws: $6
Jaws 2: $1
Jaws 3: 25¢
Jaws 3 in 3D: $3
Sin City: -$8

Simple system huh. I don't know why no one thought of it sooner. There's no reason why we can't go further with it and free-market-libertarian-up the language. No more "it's a nice day." We should be saying "it's a $500 day." No more "You're a good friend." We need cash values. "You're a $10,000 friend." That's the stuff.

The only problem with this system is adjusting for inflation. So, hopefully, for the sake of my own personal movie rating system, we won't have too much inflation coming.
