Sermon over. Game on for week 2. After Briane Pagel's stunning upset to win week 1, what will happen this week? With a bevy of new (and lame) movies coming out this week it's going to be tough.
If you don't know the rules of the game, just read last week's post explaining everything. The gist is you want to pick the top 3 movies of this weekend. Get them in the right order to make the most points. Pretty simple. And yet so difficult.
Here's the list of movies from my local megaplex (* denotes a new release)
- Despicable Me 2
- Grown Ups 2
- Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain
- Man of Steel
- Monster University
- Now You See Me
- Pacific Rim
- RIPD* (aka Men in Black meets Ghost Rider/Spawn/Reaper/Dead Like Me, etc.)
- Red 2* (another paycheck for Bruce Willis!)
- Star Trek Into Darkness
- The Conjuring* (aka every haunted house cliche ever)
- The Heat
- The Lone Ranger
- The Way, Way Back*
- This is the End
- Turbo* (It's Cars...with Snails!)
- White House Down
- World War Z
Holy cow, that's a lot of new movies! How can you possibly decide between all those? I guess just throw a dart at a board or pull names out of a hat or something. The names out of my hat go:
- Turbo $50M
- RIPD $40M
- The Conjuring $30M
A fun fact in honor of "Turbo": I heard on the news this week that there's a big trend in Japan now for women to let snails crawl all over their faces because the snail slime is like Botox or something. To quote Hank Hill, "If anyone tried that on me I'd kick his ass." What won't some women do to try to look younger? Ick.
Results will be posted on Sunday!
