Busy week.

I'll try to incorporate a gamble into this competition at least once a month. We'll see.

Next week, we will predict James' ratings for The Wolverine, The To-Do List, and (once more) 56 Up.

Surely James can't review all of these in just one week?
James replied to a post of mine that said he's recently seen films that would have ranked at #2 and #3 on his Halftime Top 10. I'm guessing at least one of those will be 3.5 stars.

The Way, Way Back: 3.5 (this sounds like a charming coming of age story written/directed by Nat Faxon (one The Descendents screenplay writers)).
The Conjuring: 3.5 (apparently it is very good - with bold claims it will go on to become a horror classic... either this or The Way, Way Back is a 3.5 imo, so I'll bet 3.5 for BOTH).
RED 2: 2.5 (more of the same. apparently the cast is not really into it).
R.I.P.D.: 3.0 (looks like a shameless rip-off of Men in Black (with a bit of Ghostbusters thrown in for good measure)... sorely tempted for a 2.5 here).
Only God Forgives: 2.0 (looks like Drive, with a similar style but apparently minus the substance).

I think I know what the other 3.5er is, and I don't think it's any one of these (The Way, Way Back aside).
