One of the things I remember most about playing basketball growing up was the warm ups before each game. All the players are scattered about the key, shooting basketballs up at the boards. Many times, the balls all seemed to reach the basket at almost exactly the same time, as if we players had been planned to shoot together at a precise moment, and when one ball swished through the net, they usually all did. However, every once in a while when this phenomenon occurred, the first ball to reach the hoop would miss, and suddenly every shot was a brick. None of them would go in. That’s how this week has been.
Usually, things go swimmingly. My life’s proverbial jump shots usually sail through the net. Of course, they occasionally fall to the ground, but you know, things are pretty good for me. This weekend, however, was tough. Though it was awesome, it was the perfect storm of busyness in my life. I had a huge football game to attend on Saturday, two events that I had planned and had to run on Sunday, and two projects due on Tuesday. Add in the fact that I think I might have the flu (gasp!), and you can see why the Weekend Fix is delayed. I’m sorry, but I’m just going to have to cut my losses and skip the Weekend Fix this week. I’m really sorry about this, but you can go ahead and read the recap from my other favorite box office website here. Otherwise, the blog should operate normally. All you really need to know is this:
Paranormal Activity is lightning in a bottle. Saw VI got unlucky this year. It looks like people want a horror movie at Halloween more than they want Saw.
