Here is my code so far.....

movies = { }

movies[title] = rating

puts "Type 'add' to add a movie:"
choice = gets.chomp.downcase
case choice
when "add"
    puts "Add a movie title:"
    title = gets.chomp
    puts "Please rate the movie:"
    rating = gets.chomp
    puts "the movie has been added!"


when "update"
    puts "Updated!"

when "display"
    puts "Movies!"

when "delete"
    puts "Deleted!"

else
    puts "Error!"

end

-------
I am told to do the following:

Call .to_sym on your title and .to_i on your rating so that your movie
titles are stored as symbols in the hash and the associated ratings are
stored as integers.

Here is what I've tried...
1.
-----------------------------------
movies = { }

movies[title.to_sys] = rating.to_i

puts "Type 'add' to add a movie:"
choice = gets.chomp.downcase
case choice
when "add"
    puts "Add a movie title:"
    title = gets.chomp
    puts "Please rate the movie:"
    rating = gets.chomp
    puts "the movie has been added!"
...
2.
-----------------------------------
movies = { }

movies[title] = rating

puts "Type 'add' to add a movie:"
choice = gets.chomp.downcase
case choice
when "add"
    puts "Add a movie title:"
    title = gets.chomp
    title.to_sys
    puts "Please rate the movie:"
    rating = gets.chomp
    rating.to_i
    puts "the movie has been added!"
...

Neither has worked and I'm all out of ideas. Help would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks!!
