Post Episode 36: And They're Off.....
And so the Oscar season begins. We finally have a three-movie week as well! There's a lot on the line this week, including an extra point for guessing all three films correctly, and also a bonus point for winning the month of September! And it looks like JB won't be getting to his video reviews after all this month. I'll likely make the two of those worth only a single point again since our predictions are so similar. At any rate, on with the show!

Don Jon-- ***1/2
Enough Said-- ***
Rush-- ***

Year Standings

1. PR0METHEU5: 49.0
2. Pedro: 48.0
3. KWRoss: 45.5
4. nitrium: 42.0
5. ShrunkenHead: 37.0
6. ilovemovies: 35.5
7. Vexer: 32.0
8. sunshineisles2: 31.0


EDIT: Just to make things clear, if someone guesses all three movies in a week correctly, that bonus point will count toward the monthly score. It could very well be that which breaks a tie.

September standings

1, Vexer: 2 correct, 2.5 points
2. nitrium: 2 correct, 2.0 points
3. KWRoss: 1 correct, 2.0 points
4. Pedro: 1 correct, 1.5 points
5. ilovemovies: 1 correct, 1.0 points
6. PR0METHEU5: 0 correct, 1.0 points
6. ShrunkenHead: 0 correct, 1.0 points
7. sunhineisles2: 0 correct, 0.5 points

Don Jon: 3.0 (the IMDb score is 7.6, and the metacritic score is just 5.2 - I don't see why anyone would think this is more than a 3.0, but I'm just thinking out loud here. Might go to a 2.5)
Enough Said: 3.0 (looks like it might be an okish more mature rom-com, but these things tend to be very subjective, so anything is possible).
Rush: 3.5 (this one is a bit hard, because I'm sure this will depend somewhat on how big a fan of F1 you are... and I don't know if JB is).

The Rotten tomatoes score is in the 80s. And that metacritic score is based off only six reviews so far. I actually saw an advance screening recently, so I'm going off of how the audience reacted to it. :)

The 83% Fresh RT score is based on just 12 reviews, so is only a bit more useful than metacritic. And the average rating on RT is just 6.9/10 for those 12 reviews. I dunno, that still doesn't scream 3.5 to me (that's barely a 3.0 in my book), but I'll change my prediction up (or down) if appropriate assuming I remember to check back in. I gather there is also preciously little T&A in this film (and none relating to the stars), which is weird considering it's about a porn addict. JB has dedicated at least two ReelThoughts on celebrity nude scenes - so I'm thinking Don Jon must be somewhat disappointing in this regard(?).

BOOM! ;-). That said, I don't know why I thought Rush would be a 3.5 in retrospect :-(.

Hi everybody. I'm new to the forums and I know that I'll have no chance to win this, but I'll hop in right now so I can get some practice for next year if that's all right.
