I thought I lowballed my predictions, but given James' recent tweets I wonder if I was actually being generous.

I don't know if it's going to be either of these titles, he mentioned a Blockbuster film being dissapointing, so that has to be either Godzilla or X-Men(possibly both, he said Amazing Spiderman 2 wasn't one of the titles), as Brick Mansions isn't really a Blockbuster type film. He also mentioned one of out three of these films being bad-Blended, Neighbors or The Other Woman. Given JB's general lack of enthusiasm for most of Sandler's movies, i'd say Blended is a pretty safe bet(the plot also sounds a bit similar to one of Sandler's previous films "Just Go With It" which JB did not like).

It could also be a title which is not on his upcoming list yet, like Walk Of Shame, since JB isn't a fan of Steven Brill's movies, that's a possible contender as well.

With all of this in mind, starting next week I'm going to start enforcing the Wednesday at 11:59 pm EST cut-off time. JB has been very active on Twitter lately, so it gives an unfair advantage to those who wait until Thursday morning.

Oh god I seriously hope it wasn't Godzilla or X-Men he was talking about :cry:. Walk of Shame doesn't open until next week though, unless there were advance screenings this week or did it premiere on VOD? Well he said two bad reviews are going up today so it's obviously Brick Mansions and The Other Woman. Could the other film maybe have been The Quiet Ones? He said he wasn't reviewing one and that's the only other film opening wide this Friday.

Fading Gigolo could also potentially be the other film.
