Either way, the fact this is doing so well next to both BP and IW is commendable. Still O/U BvS at the moment, but God bless Brie Larson for saving the box office

    Updated my profile pic to support equal cat representation in films. I've been sick and tired of these pro-dog propaganda pieces like A Dog's Purpose, A Dog's Way Home, Dog Days, A Dog's Journey, Isle of Dogs, Show Dogs, and the fact that The Secret Life of Pets mainly decided to focus on the two primary dog characters. What do us cat lovers get? Nine Lives? This is the cat movie event of a lifetime.

    Ok I'm really glad some of the reviews lowered my expectations cause I really enjoyed the film. Has some flaws that are actually a tad different from other MCU origin films but if they keep the core cast for the sequel I'm gonna be excited for more Captain Marvel. Brie Larson was pretty good despite some of the limitations the story put on her. Film should have good WoM.

    One of my close friends for eight years has been turned into an incel by these asshole alt-righters and hates Captain Marvel because he thinks Brie is a "femi-nazi". This actually hurts.

    So I just came back from seeing it. It was far from flawless, but enjoyable enough. I feel like it's a movie that needs at least a rewatch or two to fully appreciate, because its story, its central conflict and even its central characters were presented very much like we were flies on the wall with no information about what was going on until wayyyy down the line. That may sound like a compliment, but in reality, it made it hard for me to care about Carol or the situation at hand throughout a longer period of time than I should have, as I was just as confused as the character herself was about what the fuck was going on or why should I care. This is not a permanent stay, as the film's rocky start infinitely makes more sense with how the story progressed and I realized they might've done it on purpose (and by the end, I found myself a lot more into the characters and the story), but considering that it came to the detriment of an emotional touch between me and the film itself, it might've been a dubious choice in execution (because the concept is a good one on paper). This also has Black Panther-level CGI...... seriously, the effects were generally bad to abysmal here. And Carol herself suffers a little bit from the characterization she's given, because while it certainly had its benefits from a pure storytelling and character growth perspective (it made the emotional scenes resonate a lot more as I felt empathy for her and others' struggle when it comes to her identity), I still don't care about her the same way that I cared about i.e. (trigger alert) Wonder Woman. I just don't feel that connection to her because I still really don't know her closely. Not that I dislike her or don't care for her at all, but she's definitely not as interesting a character as many other heroes that have come along. Btw, speaking of Wonder Woman, that and Captain Marvel are two movies that share A LOT of similarities. So don't be surprised if you're reminded of WW more than you wanted to when you see this. And, par for the course with the MCU, the original score is hugely forgettable and completely overshadowed by the huge blasts of sound effects over it. That being said, the film deserves praise in plenty of aspects. The cast is great. Brie kicks ass here, and despite the fact that, as I already mentioned, this character (compared to others in the MCU) struggles in resonating from an emotional perspective due to reasons I won't spoil, it's safe to say that her performance isn't to blame for that. The trailers didn't make her justice by any means. This is Sam Jackson's best performance ever as Fury too. Brie and SLJ had very solid chemistry together. But Mendelsohn and Lashana Lynch stole the show for me. They - especially Talos - were the ones I cared about the most, and at times, Carol felt like an afterthought compared to them and Fury (which is a backhanded compliment). Jude Law was fine, for the interested ones.... he did what he was asked to do. Apart from the cast, I gave the effects a lot of shit, BUT the cinematography of this film is legit interesting and unique. Both the filmic shot composition and especially color grading were on a range of good to 100% on point. Clearly the space bound MCU films are the ones who boast the stronger artistic imagination...... except Thor 2, apparently. I had problems with the way that action scenes were shot, but otherwise, the film felt pretty grand, and at times, with star frames to boast. Goose works as comedy relief fine. Which, btw, the script does have its good humor moments (even if some come at the expense of tension, which is becoming an increasingly frustrating trick now that I've seen Marvel do it 10000x times..... we get it, you guys like to be funny by breaking the tension with a good joke, hahaha, can we please move on from that schtick? At least Infinity War was mostly funny on cue). The 90's references aren't intrusive to the storytelling, which is good, and the soundtrack is honestly really fucking awesome (better than GOTG Vol. 2's, imo). The way the movie plays with Carol's memories, while I already mentioned its negative side, was also interesting enough for what it was at the same time. And the emotional beats still work due to some fantastic acting that really brings them together great. Finally, the film's message might be seen by some as beating over the head, but to me, it was delievered in a healthy enough dose that it never bothered me. So yeah, a solid watch overall. One of my faves in the franchise? Nope. But definitely an enjoyable experience, all things considered.

    I've never done this, so bare with me if it's not great, but here is the current break down of my theater (Houston, as of 6:30pm CST.)

    Critics Consensus Alita: Battle Angel's story struggles to keep up with its special effects, but fans of futuristic sci-fi action may still find themselves more than sufficiently entertained. Consensus - struggling to be sufficient

    data: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mpf92NunqhPZOQkYsA3479cMmcBW80Dn0cK8HjlN0v8/edit#gid=0 So, @Thanos Legion, it seems that a linear extrapolation won't be enough, since it's gained on every hour since yesterday so far. Raw data: Wednesday, 6 March Thursday, 7 March Time Adm. Time Adm. 09:20 113,000 09:20 57,000 10:20 119,000 10:20 62,000 11:20 125,000 11:20 66,000 12:20 132,000 12:20 71,000 13:20 140,000 13:20 78,000 14:20 150,000 14:20 85,000 15:20 161,000 15:20 93,000 16:20 171,000 16:20 101,000 17:20 182,000 17:20 18:20 192,000 18:20 19:20 202,000 19:20 20:20 211,000 20:20 21:20 218,000 21:20 22:20 224,000 22:20 23:20 229,000 23:20 Actual: 460,857 Actual: Percentages: predictions based on yesterday 09:20 24.5% 232468 10:20 25.8% 240110 7643 11:20 27.1% 243332 3222 12:20 28.6% 247885 4553 13:20 30.4% 256763 8878 14:20 32.5% 261152 4389 15:20 34.9% 266209 5057 16:20 37.1% 272202 5993 17:20 39.5% 0 18:20 41.7% 0 19:20 43.8% 0 20:20 45.8% 0 21:20 47.3% 0 22:20 48.6% 0 23:20 49.7% 0 So what we see in the bottom right is the linear extrapolation of what the final total will be, as you can see this has increased every hour relative to yesterday by 4k+. I think this is primarily due to presales being a smaller % of the sales today, but using Olive's news of evenings being stronger I could see something like this: +6k rel. to yesterday from 5:20-9:20 then +3k as sharp cut off, giving 272k + 5*6k + 2*3k = aroudn 310k for today, which would be a -33% drop off, steeper than AM2. we'll see how it progresses. Here's the Thursday table with the predictions put in: Thursday, 7 March Time Adm. 09:20 57,000 10:20 62,000 11:20 66,000 12:20 71,000 13:20 78,000 14:20 85,000 15:20 93,000 16:20 101,000 17:20 109,867 18:20 118,403 19:20 127,200 20:20 135,614 21:20 142,951 22:20 148,344 23:20 153,146 Actual: 312,542

    I do two on Premiere Night. 👍 One about 1pm PST or so (I start at noon-ish and report when I'm done tabulating - I have a LOT to go through though, so it might not post 'till 1:15 or 1:30pm PST). Then I do the final report about an hour or so before the main showings of the night start. In this case I'll start it around 4:45pm to 5:00pm my time (to catch the fan events) and hopefully post it by 6:15 to 6:30. And thanks for the compliment; much appreciated.

    Like it or reviewers like Jeremy Jahns likely have far more influence over peoples films taste than most professional film reviewers. Its not saying Jeremy is a great reviewer, it is just realizing that people don't read reviews anymore and more like to watch a movie review.

    Too many people here predict movies off of their personal feelings instead of using box office reason. The 1st movie wasn't loved here on the forums but we aren't the target audience either. It did well with the GA with close to 3.5 legs. It'll do much better in Oct than battling with WW.
