  3. I remember arguing with GiantCalBears, in 2015 when Avengers: Age of Ultron was released, that Marvel superheroes would have more staying power than Harry Potter. Of course I heard his usual nonsense about how I didn't know what I was talking about and Harry Potter will still be relevant for generations as opposed to Marvel characters. It's over 5 years later, and the list below pretty much confirms I was right. https://variety.com/2020/film/news/mandalorian-avengers-stranger-things-best-shows-1234835807/ Here are the top 20 entertainment franchises, according to NRG.

  5. I think it’s a smart move. The fanboy wars thread was supposed to be a thread to let people argue about their favorite franchises. However, it became a place for personal attacks. I got caught up in retaliating at times when I was insulted, and the mods did what they felt they had to do because they felt I stepped out of line when retaliating, and I completely understand that and hold no ill will. However, the environment that the fanboy wars thread encouraged is what led to those situations. I really don’t post here much anymore as a result. This website used to be about arguing
  6. On this website, it didn’t start with MCU fans. In 2012, there were very few MCU fans here, and a lot of Nolan/DC fans. The Nolan/DC fans were very loud. The success of The Avengers changed the dynamic, and it has evolved into what it is today. When people say MCU fans started this whole thing, it shows that those people just weren’t around when it all really started . . . at least for this site.
  7. Shawn MR used to say that the general rule is that a film is profitable if it grosses between 2- 2.5 times its budget. That’s the best rule of thumb that we have.
  8. It is the reason behind it. His message wasn’t really what people interpreted it to be.
  9. Whining that you can’t get the big budget that you want for your movie is not a legitimate issue. It’s being unrealistic. And the people that support that stance are mostly haters (and some fanboys). Glad we agree that I am right. But getting back on-topic, that has nothing to do with James Cameron. He gets big budgets because his movies make big money.
  10. You can’t compare Scorsese to Cameron. Scorsese is whiny because his movies do not justify the big budgets that he wants for them. So he acts like a whiny baby, and fanboys and haters eat it up. James Cameron is not whiny at all. His movies get the big budgets that he asks for because they make big money at the box office. James Cameron has absolutely nothing to whine about, and he shouldn’t be lumped in with Scorsese.
  11. Decade in Review The decade of the 2010s has ended. It was a very big decade for this list. It's time to review how the studios did in this decade. A movie's current ranking will be listed in parenthesis. Disney To say that Disney had a big decade would be an under-statement. Disney dominated this list during the decade. Disney began the decade with a monster 2010. Disney had the top 3 domestic grossing films in 2010: Toy Story 3, Alice in Wonderland, and Iron Man 2. Disney had purchased Marvel at the end of 2009, but they had to distribute their first Marve
  12. The list has been updated to reflect the addition of Star Wars: Episode IX- The Rise of Skywalker. Bonnie and Clyde has been removed from the list.
  13. I saw no marketing for it either. I read about it online in an article on either The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, or Deadline. I forget which one of the three websites, but if I didn't read that article, I would not have known about it either.
  14. A few months ago. It’s very new. I remember reading about it finally coming out in like August or September. But it doesn’t include premium formats, so I still like AMC A-list better.
  15. Exactly! And they aren’t coming all the way to Earth to see Cats.
  16. The list has been updated to reflect the addition of Frozen II. On Golden Pond has been removed from the list.
  17. Either this or John Wick 4 has to move. It isn't even a question of whether one of them will. They are both action movies starring the same actor.
  18. I could not agree more. At least some of the data that I want to access is available, but the old website was infinitely better, and much more user friendly.
  19. The yearly rankings is set to rank the movies by yearly gross, rather than year of release.. There's a drop down menu to change that to show the yearly rankings for movies released that year.
  20. This has been an unbelievable year for Disney. An absolutely dominant performance, and they still have a Star Wars movie that hasn’t been released yet. Disney is ending the decade on a high note. This has definitely been a Disney decade at the box office.
  21. Streaming will not hurt the box office for blockbusters. Those movies are still event-level films that will be seen theatrically. Streaming does give studios a place to put movies that they think would lose money in the theater. This means that the trend of studios focusing on blockbusters will not be coming to an end any time soon. Disney+ specifically will have no effect on box office. Disney’s movies were already going to be available on cable 9 months after leaving the movie theater. It makes no difference that they will now be available on streaming instead after 9 months. If
  22. Can any Netflix film become a big hit though? Without a proper theatrical run, how do you measure if a film is a hit? Winning Oscars doesn't make something a hit. It's more a measure of quality. Typically, a hit is measured by box office. With a Netflix film, you already have a subscription, and you're just watching what is there. Personally, I'll like The Irishman. It's my type of movie, so I know I'll enjoy it. But, even if lots of others like it as well, I'm not sure how it becomes a hit.
