  1. I don't think it's that serious. I've seen a lot of people praise both Brie and Ben - I think she'll hold her own pretty well. But, it is BEN - one of the most underrated actors out right now so I'm not surprised he's getting a lot of praise.
  2. Honestly, at the end of the day - scores shouldn't trigger people as much as they do. If people like a film/love a film - that doesn't mean someone else can't enjoy it. And just because someone is a critic, doesn't mean they are getting paid. At the end of the day, use your OWN judgement. It's tiring to see people get so worked up about other people's opinions on movies - especially when they are positive lmfao. As for the reactions, this is about what I expected! I think it'll be a pretty good introduction but as I said earlier - I can't wait to see what the Russos do with the character!
  3. So... What are people expecting from reactions later tonight?
  4. Exactly. Her statement itself was actually really poignant - even though the film itself wasn't anything to write home about. But it's important for voices of color to be heard in the critic spectrum - ESPECIALLY if the film is gearing to identify with that target audience. That's not to say that "white people" can't review or critique anything - that's obviously ridiculous - but some things white people may not particularly understand/appreciate that people of color obviously would - and there is nothing wrong with that either, in my humble opinion. But yes, AWIT was just outright unfortunate - especially as an Ava fan.
  5. I'm really not going to get into this discussion because like I said, people are actively TRYING to make things an issue. At the end of the day, Brie Larson's comments are inherently inoffensive. Back on TOPIC, nothing about Captain Marvel remotely looks bad either - though I will say that it could use some more umph in the marketing department. If rumors are true, then I understand why they've held back with that but I can see why people may be unimpressed so far. I however, am extremely excited to see her arc across the MCU, similar to Captain America's. His first film was alright to me, but it was The Winter Soldier that really put him on the map for many.
  6. Brie Larson has literally said nothing offensive during her entire Captain Marvel run thus far. Neither was her wording poor or anything of that nature. It seems to me, that people will go out of their way to find something wrong with what she's saying when there is literally nothing there. She's not wrong about the press junket - it's a fact, and asking for more diversity in the press isn't some kind of insult to white men either. Either way, people are going to take what they want from it so alas. Excited for the reactions tonight.
  7. I agree. It can do that easily but we'll see! Only a few weeks left!
  8. Yeah, that number is literally the basement floor. Not really much of a new revelation imo. I think it'll do around $160m, but depending on the hype leading up to it in the next three weeks, it could break $180m.

    How is that a bad thing for a slasher film in 2018?

    Halloween (2018)

    Everyone seems to be loving it for the most part. REALLY confused about some of the complaints when the same could be said about the original.
  11. https://deadline.com/2018/10/halloween-record-opening-weekend-box-office-1202485871/ Tonight’s forecast doesn’t come from Universal, so there’s asterisk as they could come in higher or lower by the morning. Showtimes started at 7PM. We heard that the David Gordon Green-directed sequel at one point was tracking at $8M around 6PM, then popped up to $10M after 9PM. Still even if Halloween is in the high single digits at $8M-$9M tomorrow morning, that’s amazing for a horror movie considering that New Line’s The Nun hit a Conjuring universe franchise record back on Sept. 6 with $5.4M. Arguably, the next best horror movie to fare well in previews after It was Blumhouse’s own Paranormal Activity 3 which cleared $8M on Oct. 21, 2011; and that was just from midnight shows. Without a doubt, the Malek Akkad-Bill Block-Jason Blum produced title is easily headed to its best opening in the 40-year old franchise, beating 2007’s Halloween ($26.3M) and it’s poised to be the biggest opening for Blumhouse, besting Paranormal Activity 3 ($52.5M). True, genre fans are a front-loaded kind of crowd who show up first and then disappear the rest of the weekend, but Halloweenis playing like a blockbuster given its multi-generational pull. The drawing power for many is Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her legendary role as Laurie Strode for the first time since 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection. If Halloween follows the gross pattern of It and The Nun, its Thursday will rep 25%-27% of its opening day which would be a $37M-$40M Friday (including previews). Saturday would dip 10%, which would put the second day around $33M-$36M. Sunday would fall roughly 40% from Saturday making it $19.8M-$21.6M, putting the entire weekend between $89.8M-$97.6M. Again, that’s if Halloween plays like It or The Nun.
  12. Caught it at the world premiere at TIFF and just got out of a 7 pm showing at Disney Springs. Audiences ate this up hard. Lots of clapping and cheering. Some big praise and lots of chatter after. As for me? I loved it. It was completely full and so is the 10 pm showing that I am in now.
  13. What's everyone's final predictions? I'm predicting $83 million OW.
