This Rotten Week: Predicting Dark Skies And Snitch Reviews
Recapping last week:
Well this is the very definition of a bloodbath. One of my worst weeks ever and throws off all the mojo I’d been steadily banking since the start of 2013. No reason to stall here, just need to rip the bandaid off. Here goes.
A Good Day to Die Hard (Predicted: 56% Actual: 16%) ended up sucking and might mean the end of this franchise. That’s probably a good thing, though one might’ve liked John McClane to go out on top. This was, by far, the worst Die Hard movie and grossly underperformed even the lowest in the series. What a shame.
Meanwhile, Beautiful Creatures (Predicted: 63% Actual: 45%) ended up in that Twilight range of teen angst, supernatural mediocrity. For some reason I thought it would outpace Edward and Bela’s story, but no. It fell right in disappointing line.
Then there was Safe Haven (Predicted: 31% Actual: 13%). I bagged on this Nicholas Sparks film and knew it’d finish near the bottom. But this is bad even for a Sparks-based flick. Most of his other book-turned-movies ended up in the mid-to-high twenties. This one pulls up the rear on an already corny collection of films.
And finally, I had a hunch on Escape from Planet Earth (Predicted: 39% Actual: 24%) but just couldn’t get the prediction in range. All in all just a terrible week of predictions. *Hangs his head in shame*
Next time around we slay giants, perform another freaking exorcism, get on a submarine and celebrate a 21st birthday. It’s going to be a Rotten Week!
