Post Episode #24: Excessive Gore
1. Despicable Me 2 - ImageImageImageImage
2. The Lone Ranger - ImageImageImageImage
3. Redemption - ImageImageImageImage

No Redemption review this week, so I'm tacking it on to next week's docket. (Here's the bigger question: will James ever review 56 Up?)

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, so I thought that I would introduce a new element to this game: gambling. It's entirely optional, but it could also be incredibly helpful, especially when it comes to dethroning Pedro. :D The movie we will be gambling on is Pacific Rim. If you gamble, you must wager two points. If you stand by this prediction and get it right, then you will earn four points. If you are off by half a point, then you lose one-and-a-half points. And if you are off by more than half a point, then you lose two points. You can change your prediction next week, when the actual thread for Pacific Rim goes up, but it will cost you a point. Choose wisely. Any questions?

GAMBLE: Pacific Rim - ImageImageImageImage

If this works out well, I might keep it as a permanent fixture of the game. We'll see.

It took me a minute to figure out the title. For a second, I thought there was a slasher film up this week...

Despicable Me 2 -- Image

The Lone Ranger -- Image

Redemption -- Image

(I don't know enough about Pacific Rim yet to make a guess. It looks loud and Transformers-esque, but I'll probably still see it.)

Crap! JB posted his Lone Ranger review way earlier than I thought. Is it still okay to guess the other two?

Despicable Me 2- 3.0
Redemption- 2.5

No gamble for me, thanks.
