Post Episode 34: Welcome Back, Bobby
Okay, so there are very few September releases that JB will review, and we only have one movie this week, so I'm going to introduce a new rule from here on out. The person who guesses the most movies correct in a month will earn an extra point. The tiebreaker is the total number of points in a month. If multiple contestants are still tied after that, each receives a point.

At some point, JB says he may review AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS since many tell him it's very good, but I'll include it only when it shows up in the Upcoming Reviews. As for PASSION? Fuggedaboutit. Stay tuned.

The Family-- **1/2

EDIT: I forgot to mention that JB might also review Insidious Chapter 2, but we don't know yet. I'm sure it will show up under Upcoming Reviews if he is.

Updated Standings:

1. PR0METHEU5: 48.0
2. Pedro: 46.5
3. KWRoss: 44.0
4. nitrium: 40.5
5. ShrunkenHead: 36.0
6. ilovemovies: 34.5
7. sunshineisles2: 31.0
8. Vexer: 30.5

And September's standings:

1, nitrium: 1 correct, 1.0 points
1. Vexer: 1 correct, 1.0 points
2. KWRoss: 0 correct, 0.5 points
2. sunhineisles2: 0 correct, 0.5 points
3. ilovemovies: 0 correct, 0.0 points
3. Pedro: 0 correct, 0.0 points
3. PR0METHEU5: 0 correct, 0.0 points
3. ShrunkenHead: 0 correct, 0.0 points

The Family: 2.0 (De Niro has had it, and this doesn't look funny to me - I might change up to 2.5 though, but I just don't think a 3.0 is likely).

The Family - **


I wonder if there is a particular reason why James isn't reviewing Insidious Chapter 2. Especially since he liked the first one and James Wan had another really good horror this past summer with The Conjuring.

Maybe he saw it and thought it sucked? It does look pretty horrible, considering how awful the first film was, I wouldn't be surprised.

I think it looks good. And as for the first movie, the first half is OKAY, it's pretty typical Paranormal Activity type stuff, but the last 30 minutes nearly make up for it. The last 30 minutes are actually very cool.

JB has noted the following in an email between us:

"There's a good chance I'll see INSIDIOUS 2 on Thursday or Friday and get the review up Saturday but I'm hesitant about promising that because if I see it and don't like it, I won't write a review."

So that pretty much covers it.

Insidious Chapter 2: 2.0 (he gave the original 3.0, I figure the sequel won't be as good (because they rarely are)... and it will be negatively compared to the superior The Conjuring).

Clean miss on The Family tho - that really didn't look good to me.
