American Ultra: opens with 40


Damn, that sucks...had good hopes for this film.

And jeez how's that possible, I thought I was 50pts ahead of Algren, and I'd understand the AU bomb would put me back, but Algren has the same score there.

I'm really slipping...I guess I won't be surprised anymore if I finish last again (like I have all my life :tears: )

Crazy how Algren came back from his Shaun the Sheep and Magic Mike predictions.

Well, I still believe in Hitman keeping me ahead. :shades:

Looks like I will have to battle it out for #2 position with Groucho.

Oh F*ck...this sucks...can't believe it's that bad...I thought it would get some credit for the nice action at least, but guess it isn't enough.

Now I noticed the film has a run time of 85min...geez..why bother even make a movie if you have barely material for it.

Anyway, onto Sept/Oct.

It's based on a game, dude, what do you really expect? 85 minutes is ample time to complete its basic synopsis.

Hitman: Agent 47 is now at 6%, which is better for all of us, and means I am now 1% away from nailing it. But we all bombed on Sinister 2, which is at 6% now, and we all predicted 32 or over.

It's a shame that we didn't have to predict No Escape. But Antboy managed to get on the chart. ;)

Currently stuffp is on 760 and I am on 746. This is more interesting to follow than places 1, 2, and 3.

I really don't know what can still save me...and still it's unbelievable how I went from ahead in the pre-game to probably finishing last again.

The battle for 4th could still go either way with our predictions far apart.

I need work on my prediction technique for the next game.

Pre-game means fuck all because people just copy the current RT scores. Their real predictive ability is tested as the second month nears, then they usually drop down the table, as you did.

I am not sure if you did this last time, but watching the trailer is a good indication of what RT score they might get, but the most important part is to deduct your own bias from the equation. It's fucking difficult, but I've had to do it in the next game once or twice.

Is i.hope so good or are the rest of us absolutely shit?

By his recurring lateness, it does appear that he has a very scientific method for prediction. Perhaps that's the key. Whereas the rest of us just don't care too much and are erratic with our predictions.

I generally look to see who the director is and see what ratings they had on previous films, but clearly that isn't sufficient.

Depends for me. Some games I just go by my gut, others I analyse more carefully.

Post Re: Tomato Picker 8/22
If the time is available I check a trailer for every movie, and base on this will it be good or bad, then I go check the rotten page to see the film's director's and actor's previous rotten ratings to see how much I would need to adjust that grade. Then finally before I post it, I compare my list with the other players, to check If I completely misjudged something (usually not --- but actually a lot, I just feel you guys are not seeing what I'm seeing).

Very interesting case is Fantastic Four though, I enjoyed the first trailers...so I think this is 80's material for sure...Trank yeah he made Chronicle..very appealing cast, people like them for one or another reason...jeez..why wouldn't this be a darker, more dramatic superhero film of avengers but then with teens. Could easily hit 89.

But then, I saw the last trailer made me think i was probably about 15-20 points to high...thinking it still might actually be quite a good movie...I had no idea about the difficult production leading up to it, and what effect that might have on the film's quality and critic ratings

I also compare my list. Because you posted yours. If you don't want me to look at it, PM it to Groucho.
