Like the new scoring system; increases penalty for weeks that are rough on those who play (otherwise know as “my last four weeks”)

Jonathan- nice job with the second year professor analogy. I laughed a lot. Thanks!

1) Contagion– b/c not picking The Help at #1 has worked out soooo well for me so far.

2) The Help- still can’t commit to this at #1. Sorta co-dependent at this point.

3) The Debt- I’m over-compensating for not committing to The Help.

4) Warrior– hell, even Conan got $10 million, so I’m basically betting The Debt wont fall at all.

5) Rise o/t Planet o/t Apres- the safety pick. I saw Apollo 18 (which was just fine, pretty much exactly what was advertised on the tin) and either could end up at #5, but Apes will likely end up no lower than #7…. I hope.

well, here we are. This week is going to be terrible, and next week will likely be worse. What an auspicious beginning to the new season.
(sigh)
Anyway, here are my picks for the weekend of September 9 – 11, 2011:
1. The Help
2. Contagion
3. Warrior
4. Apollo 18
5. The Debt

The Help looks like it has some kind of staying power, and I’m taking a big risk in making it #1, but no serious film is really up against it, except The Debt, which isn’t doing as well as I thought last week. Bucky Larson looks like such crap, and nobody I know wants to see it, so I’m leaving it off. it may be someone’s Dylan Dog.

Haven’t listened to the podcast yet, I’ve been out all day. Hope I’ve got my picks in on time.

1. Contagion
2. The Help
3. The Debt
4. Warrior
5. Rise of the Planet of the Apes

I decided not to put lucky on my picks because frankly I’ve hated every single commercial I’ve seen.
