Post Episode 44: May the Critics Be Ever in Their Favor
I've decided to go back to the old-school way of making predictions. From now on, you cannot edit your picks once you post them. The cutoff time for predictions is every Wednesday at 11:59 pm EST, so you can wait as long as you like before making them. And yes, I'm aware of that loophole where no edit timestamp is visible if you're the most recent poster. If I catch anyone cheating, you lose five points. Please be fair to everyone.

With that said, we have three sure-fire movies on the docket this week plus one wildcard. JB was never able to catch an advance screening of NEBRASKA, so he'll see it when it opens. If that's not this week, I'll include it for next week.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire-- ***
Delivery Man-- *1/2

Homefront opens next Wednesday, the 27th, not on the 22nd. Just to let you know.

JB told me in an email that he'd have his review of it up the same week as Catching Fire and Delivery Man. If not, no big deal.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: 3.0 (sorely tempted to go for a 3.5 here actually - by all accounts it's better than the 1st one).
Delivery Man: 2.5 (looks ok as a rental, but not worth going to the cinema for).
Homefront: 2.5 (Jason Statham and Winona Ryder in a script by Sylvestor Stallone? Sounds like dumb fun to me).
Nebraska: 3.5 (Apparently Bruce Dern gives an Oscar winning performance in what some critics are calling an American masterpiece).

If Delivery Man is the only other movie reviewed this week, then we're gonna have a full-on cluster-fuck at the end of the month.
