Ryan and Watson’s Fall/Holiday 2019 Rotten Tomatoes Bet

Once a season we bet on the Rotten Tomato scores of the biggest (and not so big) movies on the slate.  Ryan took the Summer title (check out HERE my article from July where I spell out why Ryan may have had an unfair advantage in this round!) and Watson had to buy lunch then sup on the the dreadful Bubble Tea of Shame.

While Watson gargled his bubble tea (seemingly a combination of cantaloupe, tapioca and “specimen”…), the numbers geeks placed a lunch bet on a new slate of Rotten Tomato predictions for the Fall/Holiday.

Who will win?  Who will lose?

Watson and Ryan, respectively.
