The Day After Tomorrow
The Hellbox tally:
-10 for bad science
+0 for liberal bias
+10 for the people ludicrously pissed off by said bias
-10 flash freezing
+10 for pro-Gutenberg bible rant (I've done one or two myself
-- the name "hellbox" should be a dead giveaway)
-10 for Jake Gyllenhaal's sad face reaction to everything
+10 for marauding packs of wolves in frozen NYC
+10 for Ian Holm
+10 for Ian Holm exhorting the virtues of Scotch
+10 for the fine, fine, destruction of Los Angeles sequence
-10 to me for thinking so hard about a B Disaster flick
+10 for going and enjoying myself despite it all

-10 for questionable math skills!!
Questionable math--that is, if you assume that my baseline is 0...
What is the baseline? And why is it not the mighty zero?
The baseline is a variable defined by a formula determined by:
1) My anticipation of seeing the film
2) My excitement in having seen the film
3) A random number between 1 and 100
Once I have that baseline, I add up my numbers, using math at least as accurate as the science in the film I just saw.
