Post Episode 38: Wherefore Art Thou, Captain?
It's nice to have a year with multiple four-star reviews from JB. It's the first since 2009, and for a while, I thought we'd never see one again. Three movies are on the docket this week, and one rating should be fairly obvious. The other two are where we may achieve some separation in the monthly standings and perhaps the yearly one as well.

Also, I have allowed peng and Steven to join the game so they can get some practice in as well as play "spoiler" for the monthly bonus points, but I'm locking the number of contestants after this week.

Captain Phillips-- ***1/2
Machete Kills-- **
Romeo & Juliet-- ***


Year Standings

1. PR0METHEU5: 53.0
2. Pedro: 52.5

Captain Phillips: 3.5 (Tom Hanks is apparently very good in this, but I am not a fan of Greengrass).
Machete Kills: 2.5 (I think with Robert Rodriguez directing this will be pretty entertaining. I, for one, mostly enjoyed the first one).
Romeo and Juliet: 2.0 (haven't we seen this thing done countless times already? For R&J you really need to bring something special to the table (given that we already know with 100% certainty how it ends), and imo this ain't it... early reviews suggest this is VERY average, but I now think it is (slightly) better than a 1.5)
