Top Shelf

With me saying goodbye to my MoviePass I thought it would be worthwhile to look back and see just how much value I really got out of it, and I certainly extracted a lot of value. I had MoviePass for 8 months, meaning I paid about 80 dollars into it. I saw exactly 50 unique films with it, averaging $1.60 per film. Pretty good stuff if you ask me.
