Tough week; can't remember the last time I went 2/5. This, despite me being money on movies, too. Again, I never remotely thought of Nora Ephron as funny, LET ALONE a better version of Dorothy Parker. (Seriously?!) Went with Joan Rivers instead. And I just didn't think of Fargo, only Selma.

Interesting that so few people got Gold Rush. Not that I think people are missing much when it comes to skipping the silent era, but the version of Gold Rush with narration, available on Youtube among other places, is quite amusing.

I only got it because of "in the Yukon" at the beginning; I didn't stand a chance otherwise.

3-for 5, for the 4th time in the last 5 weeks. I sense a very mediocre pattern here.

Blah
