  1. OT, but since it's Jumanji weekend... For the December movie club, to get the kids hyped for the opening movies this month, I took one of the most underrated sequels of all time that combines the concept of jumanji with the space fantasy of some other movie coming...and we watched Zathura. And damn, that movie might be better now than it was 15 years ago...it was SO funny throughout...if it could have had a more sensible and shorter 3rd act, it could have been a home run, but as is, it's still a very solid B (maybe B+ movie). All the kids loved it, and seeing Peeta in the movie - damn, that one I hadn't realized:)... So, if you need to get hyped for the movies this weekend and next, you could do worse than Zathura:)...and Jon Favreau directs it...so double positive recommendation, b/c he does do the funny and geeky movies well:)...
  2. Harley was the hottest character in DC comics in the past few years...and I think Margot Robbie is the perfect Harley...when you get the right actor/actress in the right role, magic at the box office happens, ala RDJ in Iron Man.
  3. My favorite movie of all time...but I can say it ruined all moods for the rest of the night:). Not one my spouse would have picked for Valentine's Day (I was an absolute basket case after my 1st watch...now, I can just cry and tear up after my 75th viewing:). And yeah, $125M OW is high for Birds of Prey...I'd think the goal open should be between Shazam and Joker...hopefully closer to Joker...
  4. Agree to disagree - I know a bunch of married couples who think this is gonna be a great Valentine's outing...so maybe we're the fuddy-duddies. We are also the ones who thought Deadpool was a great V-Day outing - and it was... Deadpool's OW... Feb 13, 2016 Saturday 1 $42,508,025 -10.2% - 3,558 $11,947 $89,843,617 2 Feb 14, 2016 Sunday 1 $42,591,022 +0.2% - 3,558 $11,970 $132,434,639 3 That's a Valentine's Day hold for a geeky funny as hell super:)...ala Birds of Prey...
  5. That's the Chase Pay promotion, good on any movie ticket right now (unless you got an additional very targeted promotion)...
  6. B/c both parties can ask their special someone to the movie and know it's a good move which has something for each of them:). And it's a fun comedy, which is always the better play on Valentine's Day, vs a tear-jerker which ruins moods:)...should I go on?:)
  7. Multiplier too low for Birds of Prey - it will get a huge Valentine's weekend bump in its 2nd weekend. It's an ideal movie for that holiday... I think BoP will be going for $200M+ DOM...DC has a lot of goodwill and momentum built up from its past outings...that tends to pay off - ask Marvel:)...
  8. It's good til it runs out - supposedly, you have til 1/1/20, but I have a feeling it won't last past Star Wars OW...the TMobile Atom deal has to be used by 12/16, but you don't need to see the movie by that date, but just have bought your tickets
  9. Why, you haven't been reading my posts, have you:)... The Atom promos this week were hugely well known and publicized (for over a week)...but you had to wait til Tuesday and really Wednesday to get the double deal. Ticket buyers are becoming much savvier about waiting to buy for a promo, especially if they are prebuying for a future date... EDIT: But, yes, it's type of movie also helped:)...
  10. I'm feeling like Jumanji will hit $300M+ DOM over the holiday season...for no other reason other than reading the Star Wars thread on BOT. I can't imagine families at the Xmas table all wanting to recreate that drama with a group viewing, so I see Jumanji/Spies/Cats taking what would have often been multi-viewings of families at Star Wars (ala, mom and dad saw it...now we'll bring the kids...oh, grandma and the aunts and uncles want to go, we'll see it a 3rd time no problem, etc)... I do think Jumanji also gets the big benefit of the last ticket sale and being the closest release to it:)...seems presales since Wed have skyrocketed, and I gotta think that was a large reason:)...
  11. It's probably that...and the required Disney contract terms...some of the single and double screen theaters might have decided to gamble on Jumanji followed by either Cats or Spies Like Us to fill the Xmas season if those movies had much better terms (and they almost certainly did)...
  12. Long live the Atom ticket deals...not sure there will be another one for 2019 after this week, so enjoy it before the Xmas weekdays kick in:)... PS - While the TMobile Atom deal came out Tuesday, it had issues and was reissued yesterday...and the Chase Pay deal, which was stackable, started yesterday, so not a surprise there was a big positive effect:)...
  13. My youngest is so into movies and movie making (he wants to be a director) that he tells me the director of all the movies coming out...and then he looks up the movies on his Kindle to see what else the director has directed and if he can get Blu Rays/DVDs for them. He's the reason I started the local tween/teen movie club at my library, b/c he wants to watch the movies tweens/teens watch (or he thinks he does), and I figure he might become the next Quentin Tarantino if he finds his "niche" of old movies...or he's gonna be my ringer at trivia night...one or the other:)...
  14. It is...we've been very busy, and there's little the kids have wanted...spouse and I had a date night at Joker in between, but it's been a spell:)... We do have Star Wars for 4 (girls staying home) for Dec 26, so we do have 2 movies this month already (to make up for skipping Nov)... To be honest, Frozen 2 did not really hit my boys' fancy, and my girls are too old (saw 1st, but never LOVED it)...Arctic Dogs was a joke...and I wasn't paying 1st run money for Playing with Fire even if my youngest did actually want that one over the protests of the other 3 (and the dang movie still hasn't hit my cheap-o), so Jumanji it is:)... We still might even go 3 this month if PWF hits the cheap-o for New Years Eve (since they are still doing their $2 Tuesday then)...or Frozen does (but that will never happen:)...or Spies in Disguise gives me a deal I can't skip. Or I break down and get Richard Jewell tickets for another spouse date night, b/c I lived through that event, and it intrigues me... EDIT: And I'm still annoyed I let my Knives Out Atom deal go...spouse didn't want to see it, til he did (and the deal was over), and now I can't bring myself to pay full price. If that gets to my cheap-o, that might also be a NYE outing for either a date or a mom and girls day out (since my teens yelled at dad for not going and said they'd have gone)
  15. Kids pestered me into the tickets when they saw the $5 off ticket deal sitting on my phone...and god bless Atom for having that deal with the Chase Pay deal and the cheap Tuesday, all at the same time...I could have had 6 tickets under $10 if I used both my Chase cards, but I settled for $15 OOP for a prime time Tuesday showing. The kids haven't been to the theater since Addams Family, so this should be fun for them:).
