Well that's nice they did all that investigating there, but I'll always feel uneasy they never include the slim possibility that a "good" movie doesn't always mean the one that makes the most money.
And MarketCast says Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 could have earned as much as $20 million more during its first weekend had it been rated PG-13. It's R-rating kept the first-week earnings at $13 million.
I think this proves my criticism on their method of "theories". The Blair Witch movies are a great idea [b]in theory[\b] because the fact that these movies actually make money is scary enough, so the movies themselves must be off the scale!
