This week I thought I would try to predict 3 miracles that could elevate this episode of Filmsack to sainthood. “Saint Sack.” Miracle One, Randy, I’m going to need you to stay within 140 characters or less on that twitter post this week brother. Miracle Two, Scott, no talking about Elisabeth Shue’s hygiene or feet. I know her last name is Shue…so this will be tough. Miracle Three, Ibbott, No clever Batman observations. Like how Bruce Wayne and Simon Templar were both orphans and were both played by Val Kilmer and got married in Vegas or some something. Now Saint me!
