I was really pulling for Hugo to pull it out, but instead:
Congrats to Cougron for the smart picks!

Since there are no movies opening this week, does that mean we all take the week off?

I am putting in my picks early this week. My picks for the weekend of December 2 – 4, 2011:
1. Breaking Dawn
2. Muppets
3. Happy Feet 2
4. Arthur Christmas
5. Hugo

That’s right. I’m just taking last weekends results, and saying ditto.

Hey, Tony, looking at the BSBO Scoring page, did you forget to update the date above the scoreboard to indicate that these were the scores through the weekend ending on 11/27/2011?
