    Baumer's 36 best films of 2018 (top 3 has been revealed)

    Ah well. Let me give it a wild guess, Baumer! A Star Is Born Black Panther Bohemian Rhapsody

    Baumer's 36 best films of 2018 (top 3 has been revealed)

    I just realized that I saw a hell of a lot of movies this year. More than I would have thought. By my count, I saw almost 70 movies at the theater in 2018 and by and large enjoyed most of them. My favorites were A Quiet Place and Alpha. My least favorites were Paul- Apostle of Christ and Superfly. I have not put them in order, but put the movies on enjoy v not enjoyed lists. A movie has to be really bad for me not to enjoy it. I usually do not go in with super high expectations. When I do, I am often disappointed. I put asterisks to note higher intensity. Enjoyed: A Quiet Place* Alpha* Proud Mary* The Commuter Black Panther* Death Wish* Red Sparrow Game Night Strangers Ready Player One Acrimony* Blockers Rampage Avengers Traffik Breaking In Overboard Deadpool 2 Solo Book Club* Adrift * Ocean’s 8* Upgrade* Tag Jurassic World Incredibles 2 Hotel Transylvania Antman The Meg Skyscrapper * Crazy Rich Asians* The Equalizer 2 * BlacKKKlansMan Searching* Operation Finale A Simple Favor* A Star Is Born* Hellfest Halloween* Venom The Hate U Give* The Grinch Nobody’s Fool* Creed II Mortal Engines Annihilation Widows Aquaman Spiderverse Second Act* Bumblebee The Mule The Nun Truth or Dare Did Not Enjoy: Paul The Apostle of Christ* Fifty Shades of Grey A Wrinkle In Time I Feel Pretty Superfly * Sicario The Predator Robin Hood Pacific Rim

    In addition to many on your list, I also really liked: Ocean’s 8 Peppermint Upgrade Skyscraper I know that you stated that you had not seen The Hate U Give. It is really good. Looking forward to the remainder of your list.
  4. People did over predict MP. Disney had a heck of a year, so maybe it was justified to think that they would end the year with another 400+ domestic grosser. It seems to be doing well now after a disappointing start, but it likely won’t reach those lofty predictions. Good thing Warner was not intimidated by Disney and left Aquaman alone in the 12/21 slot. No matter how things go from this point, (as it’s possible that MP legs out a higher domestic gross than Aquaman), Aquaman was the movie of the season. For many here, that was not the expectation. I guess that’s what makes the box office fun and keeps us all coming back here no matter how irritating it can be.
  5. I wonder whether Aquaman will be over 700 million worldwide by Sunday. Seems like a good possibility. But I don’t have a good gauge of what the overseas projections for the weekend (exception China) are at the moment.
  6. School the DC haters! I remember when JL came out. That thread was a hot mess. They were licking their chops to do the same thing to AM. No go! LMAO In any event, I don’t know whether AM will reach 1B. I hope it does. But it doesn’t need to reach those heights to exceed expectations. I hope Shazam can do well too. I am not too excited about it based on the trailer. It seems very goofy, but I am open to being pleasantly surprised. I will support it too! There’s room for everyone. I will support Shazam, Capt. Marvel and IW4. No comic book movie fatigue in sight. People can’t get enough of them.

    China Box Office: General Discussion Thread

    What’s Aquaman’s expected finish today? Thanks!
  8. Saw Aquaman. It was good. My opinion is subject to change over time, but I think my DCEU rankings are: 1. Wonder Woman 2. Justice League 3. Aquaman 4. Man of Steel 5. BvS 6. Suicide Squad- The only DCEU movie that I did not enjoy at all. Joker’s relationship with Harley Quinn was abusive, sick and not compelling. I think the DCEU gets a bad rap. They are more often than not better than their scores on RT. Also saw Bumblebee. My son loves the Transformer toys. I was pleasantly surprised. I hope it does okay at the box office this holiday season.
  9. Ohhhhhh... Is that what you were trying to do? Okie dokie. Do your thing then... LOL
  10. No Dear, DC fans are not being defensive without provocation. As you so aptly pointed out, the opening is good. Thank you for acknowledging that. There are others who are claiming there was “underperformance”, “boring” or that the opening was “not that good”. Just a cursory look at the thread will provide evidence of that. And no, the Venom comparisons are not a straw man. During the week, I lurked as I always do on this site. It can be very informative while simultaneously being exasperating. During the week, some posters were saying that it was going to open at 55-60 million because it was lagging behind Venom. One poster in this thread even shared their disappointment at Aquaman’s opening number because in 2018, it failed to make the splash by far surpassing its tracking like Venom did. So if you’re trying (not saying you are) to make the argument about DC fan hysteria, there is none. The clap back is completely justified.
  11. Spot on... A like was not enough to high five on this post. It is schizophrenic to say the least. Aquaman is now “underperforming”, when most people here would have not believed a 70-75+ opening last month.... LMAO.
  12. Because they love crapping on DC. If it were another film, there would not be the same sentiment. Due to the holiday, Aquaman is on track (albeit not assured) to outgross Ant Man, Dr. Strange Venom and Logan who are very good comps, yet those movies were rightfully seen to have good to great box office performances. Since it’s Aquaman, people are going with “boring weekend”, “not that good”, “overestimated”. Really does give me a good idea of which posters/members I can take seriously in the future and those I won’t.
