BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 3D
HAYWIRE

Right now, the same rules from last year apply. If you want a hint to what's coming in the future, I encourage you to check out the teaser in the rules post.

Alright fuck mothers. It's on...
It'll be ram and PR0METHEU5 as the only two-time winners.

CONTRABAND - 2.5
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 3D - 3.5
HAYWIRE - 3

I'm curious about Beauty and the Beast. It's a four star film for Mr. B and on the Top 100. Will he rate it the same or will the 3D hinder the rating. And then Soderbergh? In January? Is that right?

Contraband - 2.5 (Previews feel like watching a showcase of "most commonly used action movie cliches")
Beauty and the Beast - 4 (this feels weird since I'm not even sure why JB is even doing a new review, other then it's his all time favorite animated film...)
Haywire - 3.5 (ah hell, I should go with 3 but between the previews and Soderburgh, I have a good feeling about this one)

Contraband: **1/2 I like Wahlberg but there is no way this is gonna be more than ** or **1/2; the plot just looks way too generic and action movies released this time of year are rarely anything special

Beauty and the Beast: **** The 2D version is one of his favorites of all-time but, like others on here, I hope the added dimension isn't gonna mean a slight diminution in quality

Haywire: *** Like I said with Contraband action movies released this time of year are rarely anything special but this maybe one of those rare exceptions (although this was technically a 2011 release)

I know! I fear that, for whatever reason, it sucks. Really hope I'm wrong.

Been so busy I forgot about the first round. Sadly I missed the obvious one (Beauty and the Beast) although I would have guessed Contraband wrong.

Haywire - 3.0

Since James's Beauty and the Beast review amounts to little more than added commentary, I'm going to scratch it from the contest. (This is something I probably should have done in the first place.) This will be a two film week.
