The Margie YHGTBKM Movie Review Scale

In recent movie reviews I’ve mentioned my wife’s opinions as a sort of bonus. Occasionally during a film she’ll be moved to comment and recently I’ve begun counting how many times she says “You have got to be kidding me!”, or something like it, as another measure of a movie.

Well, her stats have proven so popular that I’m actually adding a new feature to my movie reviews: The Margie “You Have Got To Be Kidding Me!” Movie Review Scale! (Or YHGTBKM for short.)

From now on, for every three outbursts, I’ll add a graphic of my lovely wife rolling her eyes:


For example: Catwoman received eleven outbursts from my better half, so you’d see three and two-thirds Margie heads.


Now before you get all excited, she’s not going to be able to watch every movie with me, but I’ll be sure to save the obvious stinkers for couples viewing.

I hope you enjoy the new feature!

(BTW, I’ve also added a shortcut to all reviews featuring YHGTBKM under the “Categories” heading. And, although they don’t contain any Margie heads, I’ve also added Catwoman and Elektra to the YHGTBKM category since they got the ball rolling.)

  1. "Bring me the the YHGTBKM head of Margie Anderson!"

    Hey, this sounds a lot more understandable than those "TV Y 7" and "TV MA" kinda ratings on TV shows. I think Blockbuster should use this rating system on its movies!
