Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition- Watson’s Rebuttal

goldcoinsI’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers.  His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak.  He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter.  In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil.  So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number.  We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions.  NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!

Inside Inside Out

Inside-Out-Meet-your-emotions-2

A while back, I posted some thoughts on the movie Inside Out, suggesting the themes and ideas behind it made it more of a movie for parents than the kids they took to see it.

Well, YouTube personality Nerdwriter did an even more extensive look at the movie, involving psychological theories and artistic ideas behind the film that are even more extensive than my own ramblings.  That guy is good.  See his video analysis after the cut, though there is about 30 seconds worth of him asking for support at the end of the video.
