We all like films. But why? And how can we prevent that sort of thing happening?

Liking films can be dangerous. Our love leads us astray. Sometimes it leads us to Poundland and we load up with blurays for no better reason than they are cheap and they are there.

But what is the science behind this? And what is the science? And what is a film? Really? Something with Tom Cruise in it? Or does it go deeper than that? Or not? And if not, why not? And what about Stephen Baldwin. He was in that one film and then what happened? What did he do after that? Other films? I guess so. But who can definitively say? Not me. That’s for sure.

This blog is an attempt to work out which film (that cost me a pound or less on bluray) is the best using maths and science and formulas and that. In a nutshell, each film gets a score.

The full maths is as follows: each blu-ray gets a score: the amount of money I can sell the blu-ray for in pence (up to a maximum of a pound) multiplied or divided by its ‘suckiness score’. The suckiness scale is as follows: The film is amazing = x3, It is good enough to keep = x2, It is ok, but not good enough to keep = x1, It is quite bad = ÷2, It is very bad indeed = ÷4 = It is unforgivably bollocks ÷6, It is as bad as I, Frankenstein = ÷7, It is worse than I, Frankenstein = ÷8.

I love science.

There will be a leader board, but it will mean nothing really, in the greater scheme of things.
