  1. Main network tv isn't that great. It's gotten repetitive across shows (same plot, different characters - repeat)...maybe it's b/c good writers are stretched too thin...or maybe I'm watching the wrong shows on network tv (since I tend to live on CW and CBS for network channels)... And good reality can be great. I still count Survivor on my watch list in season 30+ (or so)...I'd love to discover another new concept before I'm watching Survivor 60...competitive and real-ish tv can be compelling tv in the right hands with the right concept...
  2. Now I get why there were reboots of some old school game and reality shows being kicked around like Battle of the Network Stars (which I admit, I would watch, especially if it was the CW team vs all the other networks combined:). I think reality tv could have a rebirth again for a few years if the strike happens...it could use one...
  3. No online discount codes, no free tickets, no big movies, no excitement...this should be a boring weekend with no real breakouts. For new movies, best prediction I have (since I haven't cared to even watch most of the previews, I admit it) is that none of them break $10M and one of them goes under $1M (b/c you know something is just gonna do terribly). As for holdovers, nothing breaks high $30Ms (and I wouldn't be shocked if nothing broke $35M - looking at your Fast 8) and...well, I guess there is no "and" b/c there's really nothing that interesting to say:)...
  4. Out. No idea how this will do yet, but $80M is such a low bar for a summer movie...
  5. Age brings wisdom...when I was 8, I'd have told you the 5 best comedies ever made were Clue, Airplane, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, and Spaceballs... Okay, maybe I wasn't completely off-base at 8...maybe I made better quality movie decisions then:)...
  6. Not saying you're wrong...but I'd watch some of the classics (before the Saw series over-gore horror trend) before I'd stand by that...there have been some amazing low budget classic horror films, some which still hold up for scares and creepiness surprisingly well even now (and some of them, I watched 20-30 years after they came out - the mark of a great movie is its timelessness:)...
  7. Yes, I do. I thought its BO would be less than Star7 before Carrie Fisher's passing...but Leia's last movie, especially if they have her "go out" the right way, will draw in fans like no other, even if the rest of the movie is questionable at best. They will want to see and honor Leia...and the fans will be willing to do it again and again... I'd go for $1B (before I would have said under $900M)...she's gonna give it a $100M bump min...
  8. Yeah, I don't see domination...I see a tight summer race they may or may not win...they could have 3 of the top 3 movies...or they could have none of the top 3 movies...I wouldn't take a bet either way on that. The easiest calls were them winning the spring (BaTB) and the fall/winter (Star 8). Summer has always been the question mark for this year...
  9. Depends how many BOGO deals at Atom and Fandango I see between now and open. They already had one when tickets opened, so that helps the drive for $150M. Uber-fans will give this a high floor, but they need to bring in the casuals for the high number, and the online ticket deals make that happen (they pull demand forward, like they did for BaTB, which is a big reason why it's had higher-than-normal drops for its type of movie).
  10. Oh, you will after this weekend - it should drop quickly once the holiday ends - you're all set for next week:)...
  11. I'm just pulling for Case for Christ to sneak up to 20% or less drop this weekend, so stop giving away its screens for the top 3 movies to show more, please:)! It's Easter Vigil/Easter, so today and early tomorrow, folks should jump in to see this and get it over the top for my 20% or less drop predict...or at least I hope they will:)...
  12. So, to those who've seen Fast 8, did the stars' outside-the-movie fighting hurt the overall quality (and even buzz) of the movie (like it did on the Good Wife over its last seasons)? To those who haven't, do you think they can make future successful movies if they can't get the 2 stars to share a scene together? Will they need to replace/kill off one of them to just be done with the issue?
  13. No BOGO deals or big discounts from Fandango or Atom yet in April (vs all of the BOGO and extra discount and even free ticket deals for the March movies). Could that be a big difference in what we see for big movies in April vs March? BOGOs bring out families and groups who otherwise might wait for Netflix... I know people used to say it had little effect and no one redeemed thse deals...but deals directly on the ticket buying sites have to be more used than other ones...
  14. Assuming it can stay above 6, probably...
  15. Okay, I'm amused at the 2 wildly different reviews of Fast 8 just now - seems like this will be a love/hate movie reaction:)...
