3 movies I’d pay people to watch

I've heard people complain that they "don't want to pay $5 to watch a PowerPoint presentation" or that they "already know about that" or that it's "preaching to the choir". Okay, fine. If you're too poor or too lazy to pony up the hour and five-spot to watch a damn fine movie, I'll reimburse you for the ticket price. (Up to $6, first 5 takers, first-time watchers only, payment in exchange for receipt or ticket stub. Scout's Honor, folks.)

  1. An Inconvenient Truth: I don't care if it appears to be based on a PowerPoint presentation. It's a damn fine documentary and call to action on global warming, plus you finally get to see Al Gore's humorous side.
  2. V for Vendetta: It's not another mindless action film, as I had imagined -- instead, it is a commentary on what could happen if the current gov't-led terrorization of its own populace were to be carried too far. Plus lots of good action scenes, and an inspiring ending.
  3. Supersize Me: Morgan Spurlock puts his life on the line to see just how bad a steady fast-food diet could be. My eating habits improved drastically after seeing this.

Edit: I'm in Ohio for the semester, so C'ville folks might not have the opportunity to be reimbursed unless they send me a ticket stub through the mail :-(. I hate mail-in rebates too, but what can ya do?

    I'd let someone pay me to see numbers 2 and 3. I plan on purchasing those on dvd. Especially since I bought the V for Vendetta comic book series when it was new back in the 1980's and still own them.

    This offer is aimed at people who wouldn't otherwise see these movies. I'm not going to try to enforce it as policy, but it would be nice if folks left the "rebates" for those they are intended for.

    Just to be crystal clear since you've obviously misunderstood. I was NOT trying to collect anything. I was commenting in response to your post. And AGREEING with you on numbers 2 and 3 that they were WORTH seeing.

    Naw, I got ya, just that your comment made me realize that I should have clarified my original post.
