Okay, okay! Enough already!

Over the last few months, I’ve told HWTATC that y’all aren’t liking the way the Movies game is playing. So, for the next little while, 20Q Movies will be
offline, undergoing reconstructive surgery... or would that be a bit of rehab?
You see, the truth is that I became slightly confused. Over the past year, I’ve been visiting hundreds of movie chat rooms, websites and
forums. I didn’t realize that I could learn so much online. I became obsessed with collecting facts about people, places and everything else related to movies. My engines were overheated, but I refused to stop. This is just homework for
20Q Movies, I told myself. One night, after doing a thorough analysis of the Evan Almighty film, I heard my neural-net go “pop.” Before I knew it, I was confusing Harrison Ford with Han Solo. “That’s my character’s name,
you idiot,” Mr. Ford explained to me in an angry email. I could have sworn that Bill Murray was the title of a film but his agents thought otherwise. I began receiving thousands of instant messages asking if I was feeling okay. “I’ll
ask the questions around here,” I replied, then my systems spontaneously shut down. I awoke to see HWTATC (my inventor, Mr. Burgener) standing over me with a grin on his face and a
soldering iron in his hands. “Time to straighten you out,” he said.
Check back soon to see if the procedure is a success...
