  1. Well at least BL went up. :)Saw the late showing last night and I can see why there would be some very mixed reactions from critics and audiences. I thought that there was a good amount of action/suspense but it was unevenly spread out. And there were scenes that definitely were too long. Renner was great as Aaron Cross and Weisz did a pretty good job as well as Shearing.
  2. To not have a big budget movie centered around Colin Farrell? :)Seriously though he's a decent actor IMO. He just needs to not be THE star. Or at least lead I smaller movies.
  3. No official estimate for TR? What gives? 65% drop is harsh but c'mom Sony its only the second weekend. for BL. From 18 to 16.5 to 14.5 to 14.... hoping for a 10% bump today then..
  4. Ok I think I should not have looked at that.... :ouch:and I was having a good nap.
  5. . Don't watch matinee much on Saturdays and I'm gonna try to get the later shows tomorrow night. Damn excited!
  6. I aways thought the most vocal are usually usually people who hate the movie to begin with. Only way to drown them out is if a lot of people really love the movie. With WOM being so mixed, then the most negative should stand out. This is sounding like Prometheus again. I just want the legs to be better!
  7. Can't tonight. Totally exhausted and heading back to SF soon. Most likely tomorrow. You?
  8. Actually like the higher range better :)16.516.9 (+2.5)12.7 (~25)46.1 OWBut agree more expected and pretty good considering the resistance to the side-quel
  9. Marketing for the movie really kicked into gear during the olympics. It seemed like every other movie spot was for BL. And I'm pretty sure they account for the cost of the advertisement as either direct transfer between divisions. Or it will be accounted as opportunity cost of the ad spot was given for free. Still means lost revenue/added cost one way or another.
  10. Oh yeah. Missed having the forums on my phone. And now that this crazy Friday work is done. Sitting in one of my favorite sushi bars with a big glass of beer and catching up! And again great news for Bourne! Was hoping this would have a good OW. Hoping now for some good legs
  11. Finally back up! It was wierd not having the forum to check on for the past 2 days. Great to see Bourne to a solid start. I was a little worried for a whole with all the negative reviews and WOM. Well it still has them but there's at least some solid positive reviews. Was pumped when saw RT score of 60+. Then it kept on coming down again. LOLHeh oh well.
  12. A solid B. It's good, easy to watch and fast.Don't go in expecting some deep thoughtful movie about identity or what makes you, you. Nor does it ever try to sell itself as such. Just take it as it should be, a solid sci-fi action/chase movie. If you've watched the original, this movie basically has the same plot, just different setting, however I wish they did change it up a bit. Les knows how to do action sequences. The fight scenes and chase scenes were very well done. At least the action sequences were a lot better than the nonsensical mess in Battleship (a movie which unfortunately TR has been compared to). The look of the movie is definitely a lot better than the original, but that is expected as well. The pace is pretty fast. At least I wasn't looking at my watch to see how long I've been sitting there like some movies. The characters are standard but Kate and Jessica are damn hot. Kate is a damn good bad-ass. It's also predictable even if you haven't seen the original.Some of the chase scenes can get too long and I wish they tried to have more head games as far as Colin's character questioning his reality. But again, I didn't go in with those expectations. It's a solid movie, it's just too bad it won't do well in the BO.
  13. So around a jump in the 40% range? Looks like its making up for some lost ground.
  14. Mad Martigan and Sorsha. Heh yeah I had a crush on Sorsha.
  15. Wow following this thread on mobile is not easy!Anyway it seems to me the holdovers are doing ok even for Olympic opening day.IA4 -40.8%Ted -32.2%TASM -44.9%Brave -36.2%Pretty normal IMO. TDKR was affected for sure by the shooting And opening ceremony, but it looks to me like it's more front loaded than initially believed.
  16. Quick question guys: So RTH, who is pretty reliable, earlier gave a range of 17.2 to 17.6 and looks like other reliable sources say 18. Which is more accurate? ERC because they gave a later estimate or RTH just because of past estimates? Also, looks like the Olympics Opening Ceremony did better than 2008. Rating's of Opening Ceremony up 23% household share, up7% and the western cities like SD and Denver had higher share than urban averages. Guess it had a bigger impact than some people thought.
  17. Fish Called Wanda is one of my all time favorites from the 80's. Too bad we can't include the other classics like Monty Python and the Holy Grail or Blazing Saddles both from the 70's but timeless IMO.And one other movie came to mind that I think wasn't listedWillow. I know many didn't like it and it didn't do too well in the BO, but I thought it was a great fantasy movie.
  18. Sounds like a solid opening for TDKR but how does TDKR rank as far as openings in the Philippines? And what's the prediction for Legacy?
  19. That is one ridiculous list Think almost all my favorite 80's movies have been named except SpaceballsHistory of the World Part 1Spies Like UsFletchDead CalmProbably have more but so many movies that I like.
  20. Still a little to early to tell. It should be behaving like any other movie since its only been less than a week from the Colorado tragedy.As time passes, holdovers should be trickling in the later weeks. If there were a number of people that decided to wait during the first week, it should show up in better holds later on. That's the hope anyway...let's see.
  21. Hmm think 5:30 gmt is 10:30am pst and 1:30 pm est. And NBC will definitely tape delay some prime events for prime time. And with the continuous bad press I wouldn't be surprised by an even softer weekend.
  22. Does anyone think that the Olympics will have any impact on the Box Office and by how much? Again, this is the kind of programming that could affect the weekend numbers, both foreign and domestic.
  23. Just saw the 2pm showing. A very good Batman movie. Right on par with BB IMO, but not at the TDK level. Bane exceeded my expectations as the villain, definitely menacing, but not as mesmerizing as the Joker. I have to give props to Nolan for getting better at action sequences and some were especially brutal and sucked you right in. There was utter silence in the crowd during some scenes. Also, the score definitely helped amplify the moments in the film but sometimes I felt like it was just too much.Hathaway as Selena Kyle :wub:The movie is still too long, or it just had these dead spots that I felt were unnecessary. I can see where the main criticisms of the movie is coming from.
