And now the results… I didn’t do as well as I do normally… I figured this week’s token “best” rating would go to Matchstick Men, as Lost in Translation seems to be getting less solid notice. The D- for Dummy is a big surprise, though Owen Gleiberman is clearly turned off by the satirical Jewish content of the film. Not terribly surprising that they didn’t go for Cabin Fever although it’s been getting rave reviews everywhere else.
MOVIE: My Guess / Actual EW Rating
Matchstick Men: B+ / B-
Cabin Fever: B / C+
Lost in Translation: B / A
Dummy: A- / D-
OK, I’m honing my skills and will try to do better next week!
