Recapping last week:
F#$%ing A, I thought this was going to be my Fall. The Autumn of Doug. Alas, it doesn’t start off well and we may be heading toward a Winter of dis-connect. I need to string together a few good weeks in a row to avoid this.
Looper (Predicted: 91% Actual: 93%) was a win, but I had a huge head start on this one so I can’t really do any back patting. Though I am happy it’s a good movie, and someone is still working creatively in the science fiction, time travel genre.
Hotel Transylvania (Predicted: 56% Actual: 41%) just kept falling during the week. There were a few early reviews out for this one and I had to choose whether it’d tick up or down a notch. Oops.
And finally, Won’t Back Down (Predicted: 53% Actual: 33%) didn’t rally the movie critical, anti-union, pro-privatized education movie reviewer faction quite like it wanted. Not-so-secretly I’m glad this movie bombed, but I still missed by a wide margin on the prediction. I think I might have been hedging my feelings on this movie with want to come close on the score.
Next time around we’ve got Ben Affleck rescuing diplomats, Kevin James doing MMA, Colin Farrell snatching canines and Ethan Hawke solving crimes. It’s going to be a Rotten Week!
