  1. acc BOM it seems it was shown in 2 theatres in NZ still I actually know 3 cinemas where they still show it till Tuesday here in Germany not that far away for once a day in the sum, one shows it rather late if at all, but not tomorrow (public holiday) and not at Saturday = but that one is way farer as I usually drive for a movie shown in a small cinema with not the best technical equipment. In Munich - in one of Germany's bigger cinemas - its scheduled only once, for a last screening tomorrow afternoon = 19 (!) tickets already sold . And another cinema I do not even know (also Munich) Hmmm, that gets me thinking, to watch it a last time or not.... Its already my personal repeat view count record holding movie (and I am not prone for re-watches in general) Can't wait for 18 July, when it will get released on discs here. Looking up the theatres got me the info at the side column of the results about 78% of the audience liked it acc google, that's similar to IMDb's 7.1 rating in a way, and matches to a lot of review / audience reaction sites I've seen, just RT is low with 56%. And still nearly triple the amount of audience reactions than A:EG collected there beside RT having already deleted around 50k 'reactions' for CM = average audience rating there increased quite a lot to 3.2/5 beside so many down-votes. At IMDb AEG has ~ twice the amount of ratings, way more plausible. About its result: it made roughly twice of what I had hoped for, as in I hoped for more than Ant-Man 1. And I am aware about the end credit scene theories, but hoping for does not mean 'being sure' or... All is always possible, but still I am surprised about the height of the results (and very happy about it).
  2. Not much time, even less interest (I feel BOT is a bit less enjoyable for the moment than usual. I'll aim for to be back when AEG is out of the cinemas) Only news is an OS / ww / dom update OS May 24-26, 2019 Note: The number of days and dates in a weekend may vary by country.

  3. That's a rather skewed way to look at those numbers: Avatar had not a similar simultan OW (e.g. China during weekend 8-10 January). dom it started during a heavy snowstorm, muted its OW there btw another season today's times BO tends to behave way faster Avatar is not a part xx movie that too tend to be faster in especial 3D able cinemas way less - needed time to be able to get a ticket in 3D Avatar got a higher than usual rewatch need for: this time in 3D than nowadays is typical and for its must see as 3D WoM

  6. I hope it was clear it was in no way meant in a negative way, I always smile a bit when I see your posts. I like the thought behind it very much Its a special thing too, that's all what I meant We all have some special quirks or whatever unusual, we all have thoughts / ideas .... that are banal also, a mix of our past and ideas for the future, some interesting, some boring... I do not understand what all the fuss here is even about.

  8. Mike also writes always peace and Mike as a signature I see no harm way less than e.g. the misuse of term like locked, billies,.... and whatnot again and again leads to derailments and so on. People are used to styles out of e.g. what is/was usus at the forum they started with or... deliver their own quirks. As long as people do not get personal, where is the harm? Isn't this here even a special place for 'otherness'? If its too much, use ignore?
  9. ... out of the same fandom now call this sole tweet pathetic.... 😉 Btw, I did rewatch this year for the first time in my live one of those 'obsessive' rewatches without any technical reason, but not for the BO of it, bcs I really love and click with it 😉 = I guess I am not the only one of those. Technical reason: I did rewatch ~ 9-10 years back rather often another movie, for different reasons, one major one finding out the different projector / screen combis for max 3D effect without getting nauseate. Another technical reason in a way: watching a movie in German and in OV for learning English or for not being sure about translation quality (usually being right about something feeling of) / understanding it right.

  11. often for me too, see that professions is part of the examples I gave That I do not agree to the degree / that ~ 100% formulating... like I understand the wording (might be a wrong impression, as I am not a native English speaker) That I agree to too I think both professions have their parts in the result. I can fully believe the behind the scene people being more important than even usual in this case, but that does not exclude the 'faces' of the movie, that usually get more of the recognition. In the end if actors/actresses do not deliver, the remaining team has no chance to deliver something worthwhile, or? Btw, I haven't seen any of the JW movies, but the trailer/actor mix got me curious (seen before Captain Marvel). Haven't seen the Matrix movies neither. Yet. Bought in the past that collector box, no special reason to have not watched it yet, more a time thing (binge watcher....).

  13. In my POV an actor is often the reason to even look into an upcoming movie, but if I'll watch a movie or not depends still on the summary / genre mix too In the 'sea' of new releases an actor/actress/director/.... can be very important for that first awareness step, but to watch something story-wise unappealing, why would a GA do that? GA is not a fan (who might follow 'their' star to every project to a degree), but that does not exclude a general awareness about a lot of actors/directors and so on. There are a lot of shades between black and white.
