**$1:**

If overwoke critics gave a movie a perfect 100 but audiences only gave it 50, your system would score the movie a perfect score of 200, the same as a a movie where the audience and the critics both gave a perfect score of 100 each.

Ahh...I see what the problem is. Your using your Beaveworld math again rather than the math the rest of use.

Here I'll show you again how it's supposed to work.

When Critic score is higher that audience score you subtract rather than add the two scores.

150 - 50 = 100

Don't pay to see this movie unless your Beave or somebody like him.

Oh I see what you mean now. But it still doesn’t make sense. You’re just doubling the audience score.

In your original example then:

**$1:**

If you check out the graphic below you'll note that Rotten Tomatoes has the reviewers rating at 69%. The audience rated it 91%.

So I add 69 to 91 and get 160. Then I deduct 69 from 91 = 22.

Then I add 22 to 160 to get 182. Joker has a 182 rating.

150 is a gotta see it.

If the audience score had been less than the critics I would have deducted Audience from Reviewers and deducted that number from the total of the 2.

If the audience had given it a 69 and critics had given it 91 (instead of the other way around) :

69+91-22 = 138....

138 = 69 x 2

Why not just simplify and ignore the critic scores altogether??
