Just saw that quote at the end- I’m going to have to listen to that, like, NOW. 😉

Well, on to week whatever of the tank city chronicles! What will be the one to bloody our collective noses this week?

1) Hansel & Gretel Which Hunters- I actually kinda want to see this. Not ‘drive there & pay for a ticket’ see it, but ‘watch at home’ see it…

2)Zero Dark Thirty- I also want to see this, and might even go to a theater. Except there are about 5 movies ahead of it on that list (and all I’ve managed in the last month is Life of Pi; excellent, and excellent 3D.) Anyway, this might be #3, but I remember the fall Texas Chainsaw took in week 2.

3) Mama- I’m betting that the (much) higher RT score than TX Chainsaw will = a much lower fall. Hedging it down to #3.

4) Silver Linings Playbook- not even sure this will make the top 5, but I’m hedging again, mostly b/c of AHnold’s crappy showing last week.

5) Parker- annnd so I pick the AHnold pick again this week? Maybe, but I just can’t pick the 43 movie (it just looks stupid; I know, I know that trick never works!) And I’m a huge fan of the Stark/Westlake Parker novels, and just realized this is yet another adaptation (who knows, maybe it’ll be better than Payback, my personal fave.)
