A normal, well-adjusted person might decide not to use their own platform to gloat about their success. Unfortunately for you all, I am not that person. "Joker" out-witted (oof, I screwed it up already) the competition this weekend, earning $96.2M. That's pretty amazing. I don't want to imply that I have a solid chance of winning the draft, I want to explicity state it. You are all chumps, and I am keeping your money. What if I do end up losing? I am still keeping your money, because I deserve it, and if I don't win, something unfair and unreasonable happened.

Nifty! "The Addams Family" is coming out this weekend! Let's take a quick peek at who owns it. Hmmmm, Robyn. Robyn is not me. Robyn will not win the draft. Let's not waste our time talking about non-winning competitors and their garbage movies. NEXT!!!
Now, "Gemini Man" is the type of quality film-making we should be discussing. I am copying and pasting the description of this movie: "Henry Brogan is an elite assassin who becomes the target of a mysterious operative who can seemingly predict his every move. To his horror, he soon learns that the man who's trying to kill him is a younger, faster, cloned version of himself". Wow. Just... wow. This is a real movie directed by Ang Lee. I changed my mind. Let's go back and talk about "The Addams Family".
"The Addams Family" is an animated reboot(?) of everyone's favorite emo family's hijinks. Watching this trailer, I get a strong "Hotel Transylvania" vibe from it, for some reason or another. If we're talking nickels and dimes, that should be a good thing. I don't think this specific kind of reimagining of this property is going to do it any justice though. "Abominable" is still out there, and "Maleficent" is coming out next week. I might be low-balling it, but $11M seems pretty reasonable.
