Recapping last week:

Oof, not a great week with a couple of mistakes but one near dead-on prediction that keeps it from a complete embarrassment. Don Jon (Predicted: 69% Actual: 87%) didn’t slip the way I thought it would this week. I based much of my slippage on Katey Rich’s initial thoughts on the flick. She hated it. Kristy doubled down on the hate by pretty much trashing it in her review. These two represented the clear minority though, because critics by and large think it’s a strong film.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (Predicted: 39% Actual: 58%) was a big miss. I thought this was going to be a monumental error on my part when it came out of the critical gate like gangbusters, but the score dipped over the course of the week making it just a bad prediction. Eric’s review says it gets closer to the original than I thought and he enjoyed it for many of the reasons I thought it would suck (read: silly food/animal combinations).

Baggage Claim (Predicted: 13% Actual: 14%) was right on the money. According to critics, unoriginal and a retread of every bad rom-com that’s come down the pike in the last fifteen or so years. The score is close to a bottom feeder though Mack’s review at least gives it the cable TV go-ahead, meaning you’ll get sucked into it a few years from now. I won’t, but you might. This thing just looks dreadful.

Next time around we get attacked by pirates and killed by machetes. It’s going to be a Rotten Week!
