  1. I wish I could have liked baumer's post. A very good read and it hit the nail on the head. Prices are truly outrageous. When I am in New York my cousin is my movie buddy. We go at least once a week. He buys the tickets, I buy the snacks. An adult ticket is $13. We usually try to catch a first showing which would cut the price down to $9.50 especially if we know we'll be seeing more than one movie a week. Snacks for the both of us usually come up to $20-$25. I can never deal with the combos because I cannot drink the size of drinks they give and i'd rather pay more than waste. So one trip to th

  2. Kate was one of the worst TV characters I've ever had to suffer through. Jack was terrible too, until the last season.

  4. It's really true. And teens themselves don't change their behavior. It's that the teens now arew new from the teens 4 years ago. Teens now were basically born with cell phones wifi Internet Xbox etc. Movies aren't as exciting or a traditional novelty like they were for us even 10 years ago.

  5. Nice to see someone else with the same philosophy as myself.As for the points people have raised, it really is time for ticket prices to drop. As it has been said many a time, they get fuck all from the ticket prices. The smartest thing is to take a hit per ticket and make a gain in the volume. If the volume increases due to cheaper tickets then the conscession sales will increase. I doubt they'd see it like that. A drop in price by say $1.50 could work like this:Say you have a middle of the range movie released. The auditorium has 300 seats. Now, on opening night the ticket price is approx $1

  6. Yeah. But there are some other movies - reboots like Total Recall with Colin Farrell and The Bourne Legacy without Matt Damon. And I don't even mention Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter or fantasy movies like Snow White or Jack the Giant Killer. But hopefully The Amazing Spider-Man is safe.

  8. When is the US economy going to pick up already? I'm sick of this Global economic crisis. I've been hearing about it for years through my tv and computer machines and I'm sick of it.

  9. I'm sure I read somewhere that SH1 didn't have any midnights because it opened on Christmas Day.

  10. I doubt that it would be terribly useful. Midnights for SH1 would have been on Christmas Eve which is a really poor movie going day.

  11. How come? There are deserving, quality "family" movies out there (see Hugo and Muppets). I enjoy when crap like Alvin3 does poorly, but there's no joy in seeing quality movies underperform.

  13. +1As for this weekend, we're definitely seeing that the market hasn't that the market hasn't really improved at all from last year (if anything its gotten worse) and that the better summer was a result of there being 14 more films than the last summer, as there was a 2.6% increase in gross but a 8.5% increase in volume of films released. Barring Bridesmaids, Fast Five, The Help and a few other breakouts, this year was filled with underperformers. At this point, it doesn't bode well for 2012, though I really hope we see a recovery

  14. I don't know why everyone's so glad about Alvin's low number. I'd rather have some movies do well to keep box office interesting than to have everything disappoint.

  17. There's a huge difference between grossing $50M less and $6M less, which is what Iron Man 2 did compared to the first.

  18. Not surprised. Movie was average at best, and RDJ mumbled his way through it. Killed the jokes for me.

  19. Before anyone starts whining about these numbers being, "WAAAAYY TOO EARLY,"... yes, we know these numbers are early. That didn't stop you from being interested and clicking the thread anyway.Anyway, as expected, it looks to be another disappointing weekend. Hopefully things heat up as we get closer to Christmas. This is usually a pretty tame weekend anyway.

  21. Why keep arguing over two mediocre franchises? :lol:Yes, they both made a ton of money. No, they won't win awards. Done. End of story. Fin.

  22. All three Transfomers films are below even the least-quality HP film, but of course as a Trannie you feel the opposite in your looniness. The acting is atrocious in most respects, the humor is puerile and grating, the Transformers aren't even the stars of their own film, and so on.And since when do the best films make the most money? Look at the Top 25 of all time domestic box office and you'll find more than a few stinkers. Transformers appeals to the lowest common denominator, people who want mindless thrills, cheap humor, and stock characters with the depth of tissue paper. Of course the fr
