    At the moment I'd probably call Thymes 2 and Scrooge the most secure pre-Q4 films to get a nom. Me & My Shadow and Log Horizon are both wildcards and their chances will probably depend on how good Q4's animated turnout is. At the moment, my loose predictions for nominations are... Cybernetic 7 Thymes 2 Amulet 2 (even if I hated the first) Scrooge Me & My Shadow/Log Horizon/Shadow Entities/maybe Beast of Loch Ness

    While, I'll admit that not every effect has aged perfectly (although I'd point out that a large number of scenes used actual birds so how the 'effects' there look awful I'm not entirely sure), it's a fantastically intense film. How you can call classic scenes like the attack at the schoolhouse, Hedren going into the attic or the final scene (one of my favourite movie scenes period) 'complete shit' is beyond me.

    Ironically Con Air was going to have a sequel that was supposed to be set on a prison bus.

    Hancock (I'm not sure if it was development issues or what - Peter Berg should have made Hancock 2 instead of Battleship) The Karate Kid (Karate Kid 2 would have probably done well if Will had committed Jaden to that instead of f'in After Urf) Wedding Crashers (not because it needed one; I'm just surprised that studio execs didn't try to get a sequel going. Even if it was inferior, it could have had a Meet the Fockers/Hangover II sequel bump; anybody remember any rumblings about it from back when?)

    Drop from last Tuesday for GotG is estimated at 51% (13M vs 26.3M) - let's hope it doesn't get any lower. In my opinion, this is looking ok. With 50% drops (on average) from now on, it can still reach $100M. UPDATE: As a post lower down mentions, the Tuesday actual is 13.6M so the drop is 48% from last Tuesday.

    Darkelf is referring to the movie's inception which was actually meant as a Commando's sequel at one point until Arnie dropped out and the script got rewritten:

    16 days till release. The biggest November release to date is <2012> released back in 2009. No solid figure on the number of tickets pre-sold is available but the share was close to 70%. OD for <2012> was 304,862 and the 4-day opening week admissions was 1,621,656. All in all the film finished with 5,462,953 admissions. A werewolf boy, released on October 30th, had a smaller OD and OW of 128,787 and 1,289,562 respectively. It's presales were lower too with 57,479 tickets sold (42.3%) by it's OD. A werewolf boy had better legs though and finished with 6,654,842 admissions total. For a similar film type with similar release date, gravity last year opened to an OD and OW of 110,996 and 825,367 admissions. the presales for gravity by it's opening day was 81,805 tickets sold (48.6%). It finished with 3,227,647 admissions. If the currency holds, it favors the dollar much more than back in 2009 too..

    Wait, neither Vertigo or Psycho made the list? Yet the Prestige and Batman Begins did? Do people not realize Nolan (and most modern directors) directly rip off Hitchcock's masterpieces? Sham. I mean, Rear Window is great and I am glad it made the list, but without Psycho or Vertigo you don't have modern cinema.

    Watching Social Network was interesting, because most of my friends were like that in high school (no billionaires but a couple managed to retire while still in their 20s), and while watching it I had the sudden epiphany that about half my high school friends were probably on the autism spectrum.

TMNT and MR had ok openings, VS2 not so - will be hard to get to the nearly 1mil admissions of part1. "Winterkartoffelknödel" opened much higher than the first one and even managed the highest PTA! Very nice, a slight expansion might be appropriate. In contrast, "The Judge" had the lowest PTA of the openers and will be out of theaters soon I guess.

    Indeed! We have our share of nolanites CGV could profit hugely from interstellar as they have a monopoly on IMAX screens in Korea. Potential stumbling blocks are the local films Fashion King (released the same day) and Cart (One week later).

    I'm surprised Vertigo didn't make since it's had a such a critical surge over the last decade or so. But it doesn't make my Hitchock top 10. Visually and thematically it's complex and interesting but as a story it leaves me unmoved. Notorious and Rear Window are my two top Hitchcock movies but Psycho, Rebecca, Strangers On A Train, North by Northwest, The Lady Vanishes, 39 Steps are A level classics.

    Because everything suggests that Julianne Moore, with her narrative and her reviews, is the frontrunner for the win. But I would be happy either way, Julianne Moore is an acting legend and she s long overdue.

    this is so bad, so so so bad it's actually good. The fights are awful and the score is just the theme being played again and again, I don't think this movie has any truly redeeming quality. By the way, these are my favorite scenes: The fighting looks like bad choreography, just like in Daredevil. And you never get to know who won the fight, and that's coming from a tournament in which every fight end up with someone dead. And then you have this. How did she know he was gonna fight Sub-Zero? And why there was a bucket of water right there just waiting to be used? Is she using telephathy or she just thought that her appearance would help Liu Kang remember her words? And how exactly did the water became a perfectly shaped icicle? hnngg i love this

    Yeah, what Rukaio said. But I wouldn't fret about the schedule. Only 60% of films scheduled for that quarter get made anyways, and since school/college is back in session for some players (including me), they don't have as much time on their hands to get stuff done.

    My example that immediately comes to mind: Tim Burton's Batman movies. I really liked them in that post-B&R era when the Schumacher movies were fresh in the mind (or rotten in the mind, as it were). They were still the DEFINITIVE Batman movies for me. Then, as I got more into reruns of the animated series, and especially in the months leading up to Batman Begins, I grew to quite dislike them (Laundry list at the time included: Batman kills people! The Prince songs! Joker shoots down the plane with one shot from a gun in his pants! Why does Bruce Wayne sleep upside down like a bat in that one scene? The Penguin is a Tim Burton freak stereotype! Selina Kyle magically resurrected by cat licks! Why did the Penguin bite that guy's nose off?! Penguins with rockets strapped to their backs! The Penguin "driving" a ride-em toy Batmobile! Batman record-scratches on a CD! They're really no less campy than the Adam West show!) There was some interview with Mark Hamill where he ripped into the Burton movies, and at the time I believed myself to be in total agreement with the stuff he said. Then, at some point after TDK, I gradually came back into realizing that flawed as they may be, I did not hate them, and was willing to enjoy them for what they were. So I've reached a happy medium.

    James Wan's mah boy.The guy knows how to make a horror movie. Lot of people didn't like Insidious 2 but it's actually a lot of fun once you start enjoying just how stupid and OTT it is.

    No offense, but why does your opinion matter here? The Godfather films were both commercial and critical hits.
