05/10/01 - I have revamped and redesigned my movie rating system, due to some existent inconsistencies

05/05/01 - I am in the midst of redesigning my site, and the first changes are in effect now.  I have seperated the site into two sections, (which contains my reviews and listings of movies I've seen, theater and video) and (a listing of movies coming theaters, and video release dates.  Please let me know what you think


My revamped rating scale for reviews.  The ratings are classified by how much I would spend on seeing it, if I could rate the price by the entertainment value of the movie.  Click on the titles to see the review.

$$$$$ Worth whatever you have to pay to see it
$$$$ A definite full price feature, a matinee would be a bargain
$$$ Matinee at best, even a good rental, nothing more
$$ If there's nothing else at the video store and reruns on TV
$ Don't waste your money, free is too much to pay for this one.

This is my new favorite video store. They are not boring! They do it the way it is supposed to be done, by providing a varied selection, knowledgeable staff and a fun atmosphere. If you're ever in the Kansas City area, you should stop in, or just visit their site and see what I see! The ultimate video store experience.
