    I'm going to end my night with this.....and I hope all of you feel the way I do. @GiantCALBears sent me a very heartfelt and sincere private message apologizing for calling me names and belittling me and so on. He says he was in the wrong and that he doesn't know why he does things like this at times. I won't get into other specifics, but just know that it takes guts to admit you are wrong and to admit that you acted a bit out of line. He also donated $200.00 to the site. That is incredibly honorable of him. He says he won't be back as he has some personal things to take care of. I told him that I sincerely hope he returns and that his apology was accepted and it's water under the bridge. He's a stand up guy for doing what he did. We all make mistakes....it's how we deal with those mistakes that define us. I hope that if he does come back, we all welcome him with open arms.

    It has come to my attention that a user recently foolishly accepted a bet where he would donate $1,000 to the site. It's no surprise this user has told the person he made the bet with he doesn't intend to pay. We are a not for profit site that runs on donations. We use these donations solely to pay for site expenses and do not profit from it. For this reason we allow, although do not encourage, bets between users that involve donations to the site. The $1,000 bet is a significant sum that while paid for a significant portion of next year's server cost (I believe we are already paid for this year), is too large for us to ask for any user especially when they can't afford it. I am therefore placing the following restriction on bets involving money donated to the site from this moment forward (it does not affect current bets): A cap of $100 is instituted. This is a hard rule. I also encourage users do make sure both sides are good for the money. Getting into a bet you have no intention of paying if you lost (like we believe the user who bet $1,000 did) is a douchebag move. I would check on the user's reputation with the community at large. Users entering into bets involving money must also be at least 21 years old.

    Just saw it (had some critics in the screening with me as well). Wow. That was a intense experience and a half. I'm still kind of processing it. The marketing certainly lowered my expectations, but the movie completely took them and smashed it. They weren't kidding about the score. That was quite possibly one of the best Hans Zimmer's scores I've ever listened to, at least in the top 5 of his scores.

    So this weekend is shaping up to be a great one. All the hold overs are doing fantastic except for TF5(LOL). Spidey fever has taken over and looks like is here to stay. I leave for my trip to Malaysia tomorrow morning so sadly I will not see what the actuals are but I know Spider-man is going to hold well and out perform expectations. Go Spidey Go! PS I need some good luck wishes. I'm gonna ask my girl friend to marry me while I'm on the trip so here's hoping she says yes

    Interestingly, that shot's a great example of why I get frustrated at some of the TF visuals. For sure, it's impressive, shows scale, and so forth, but the design and color of the Decepticon doesn't stand out from the background buildings. Your eye has to work a lot more to distinguish the various elements, and a lot is lost in the process.

    Yep! Once Wonder Woman hits ~$365 million it will be the leggiest live action comic book film of the 21st century, beating out Guardians of the Galaxy's 3.53 multiplier from 2014, which itself beat Spider-Man's 3.52 multiplier from 12 years earlier in 2002. Once Wonder Woman hits ~$369 million, it will be the leggiest $40+ million opening comic book film since Batman in 1989. (This is among Friday openers only, obviously -- those few dratted weekday openers aren't comparable, unfortunately.) If Wonder Woman can hit $391 million (or higher) for its total domestic gross, it will have the 6th best multiplier of ANY film that opened to $70+ million (Friday openers only): Best Multipliers Ever for $70+ Million Opening Films: Avatar (2009) — 77.0 million (9.73) Finding Nemo (2003) — 70.3 million (4.84) Zootopia (2016) — 75.1 million (4.55) Inside Out (2015) — 90.4 million (3.94) American Sniper (2015) — 89.3 million (3.92) Wonder Woman (2017) — 103.3 million (3.79+) — IF IT CAN HIT $391M Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) — 248.0 million (3.78) Toy Story 3 (2010) — 110.3 million (3.76) The Incredibles (2004) — 70.5 million (3.71) Finding Dory (2016) — 135.1 million (3.60) Wonder Woman will have achieved this off a $100+ million opening weekend in the summer. Phenomenal stuff. Even if it falls short, it will still be in the top 10. As can be seen, the list is dominated by animated films. Of the films with better multipliers than Wonder Woman (presuming it can hit $391M), three are animated films, one is Avatar (at #1 with its incredible juggernaut of a performance), and the other is American Sniper with its patriotic dominance. I have the full list of multipliers for the 101 films that have ever opened to $70+ million, in order of opening weekend gross, for those who are interested. Peace, Mike

    Wonder Woman walking through the wreckage of these Summer films:
  38. 23 points
    I said this on here before at some point, but studios did this to themselves this summer. They had way too many well reviewed movies shoved into a very small window and nothing had a chance to breathe. The movie going public only has so much money theoretically, and asking people to come out and support about 10 good to brilliant films in a 4 week period is idiotic. Baby Driver made it even worse when it moved dates and shoved itself into that late June and early July window. Some of it is bad luck of scheduling, but too much high quality ended up right on top of each other. I think it also shows this summer, and hopefully we see it continue next weekend, that audiences rewarded "new" or original films and didn't exactly reward a lot of the sequels and rehashes no matter how good they were. Spider-Man: Homecoming is about to drop 70% or so. Cars 3 and Despicable Me 3 were toast very quickly. War of the Planet of the Apes might have the worst opening of the trilogy. Fate of the Furious fell way off. Transformers and Pirates were rejected. The Mummy and Alien: Covenant were rejected. King Arthur was rejected. Obvious copycat formula movies like Baywatch,Rough Night and The House were rejected. Wonder Woman was "new" and rewarded in a huge way. Guardians 2 was still fresh enough it wasn't penalized. Baby Driver was rewarded. The Big Sick is being rewarded. I hope that Dunkirk and Girls Trip will be rewarded next week. Detroit should be rewarded as should Logan Lucky. Lots of factors at work here, but add this to Split and Get Out doing huge numbers and a fresh take on super hero movies with Logan, then maybe audiences are embracing original movies or fresh takes in a bigger way. There is the outlier of Beauty and the Beast, but that one was simply a freight train that wasn't going to be stopped. Will be interesting to watch the rest of the year.

    Just saw it. Wow, that was quite an experience. I felt like I was watching the movie high, but I wasn't. The visuals, jesus fucking christ, are absolutely insane. Forget the trailers on your small screens, this DESERVES TO BE SEEN ON THE BIGGEST SCREEN EVER. I could rant for days about how colorful this movie was. Absolutely gorgeous. You can definitely tell where the budget went into. The use of color was pretty fascinating to watch. SO MUCH MY EYES ARE AMAZED. I sound kind of hyperbolic here, but the visuals are well worth at least a watch. As for the story... It was kind of okay. Delevingne was excellent and DeHaan was good as well, they were pretty much a team and both had their quirks. But I felt like the story fell flat, especially in the third act when it suddenly decided to start to dump info on you. Had a good time though, and I'm glad to see space operas are still around. Never read Valerian btw, maybe I'm missing something extra. I'm still not sure how this will do against Dunkirk (which I'm also seeing soon btw). Won't be surprised if Dunkirk does like 45m OW and this does like 30-35m OW.

    I just think it's incredibly rude to come to someone else's home and the first thing you do when you walk in the door and tell them how awful the place it is. No one asked you to come here. You're more than welcome to stay of course and enjoy your stay here but don't come here and tell us how moronic we all are.

    We have had these exact discussions about "Low presales, will it have walkups" in 2014 To be fair though the last movie had weak presales also. The walk ups came in force though. Yeah, but in theory, the sequel to a successful and popular reboot would have more interest.

    I told you bastards this thing would blow people away with the unexpected timeline presentation. I've never seen anything like it, not even the Inception timelines that some are comparing it to because they have nothing else to compare it to. Flat out brilliant and Nolan and his editor should be right in the mix for Best Director and Best Editing.

    Tele Jr and I finished watching AVATAR. Man, it was intense for a six-year-old (in a good way). He was furious at the "bad guys" when they destroyed Hometree. He was screaming at the TV. He shrieked with delight and did his own little war dance when Jake and his fighters dove out of the sky to start the battle. After the movie, he declared that when he grows up, he wants to become an alien just like Jake.

    Haven't read through the comments since I last posted (just got back from my screening), but this is going to make sooooo much money. It's as crowd-pleasing as WW. I don't know if it's the best SM film (between this and 2), but it certainly has a different feel than the previous iterations, which will help it stand out a bit. Legit impressed at the direction too, it sustains a really fun vibe the whole way through, Watts deserves major props.

    Theater managers have got to be LIVID right now. This got 3-4 screens at basically any theater with over 10 screens when it might have only needed 1. Theaters cleared their house for a 30M opener
