Top Ten Reviews (MARCH 4-6)

Thought I'd go through with my reactions on the top ten box office for the last 6 weeks or so.

The March 4-6 Box Office Returns were pretty surprising. 

I did not think that the Pacifier was going to do any business whatsoever.   The Vin Diesel flick looked to puerile for an adult audience, but too adult for a childrens movie.  I guess the tastes of children have changed.

It's good to see Million Dollar Baby climbing the charts, seems like the platform release is working out really well for this movie.

I'm Back

So, it's been quite a while since I updated this thing, so I thought it was about time I started in at it again.

Haven't actually seen any movies recently, except for Sin City, which I thought was amazing.  I spent literally the entire movie with a huge grin on my face thinking "This Movie is Awesome"

I'm a little surprised at the box office numbers, I thought it would have gotten more over these first 3 weekends than the 61M dollars that it's sitting at now.  I hope it gets past 100, because that's always impressive for a rated R flick...

The Oscar's Accountants

I found this article a few weeks ago

Just thought it was something most people never think about when they're watching the Oscars.  The information those men carry is much more valuable than I think most people imagine.  I'm a little surprised that the new guy will actually be backstage doing the work this year, I would have thought they would just have him watch first...

Top Ten for Weekend of Feb. 20th

The Top Ten:

I'm a little surprised that Hitch stayed atop the list, I really thought that Constantine was going to take that top spot

Seems like a fairly big weekend for movies overall, with two movies with over 30 Million, especially in a time of year when movies traditionally don't do as well.

As suspected, Boogeyman did indeed drop out of the top 5, all the way down to number 7.

This Week's Box Office

Here's this past weekend's Box Office Top Ten

"Hitch" completely dominated the weekend movie box office.  

"Boogeyman" was last week's number one movie, and it dropped off significantly, I don't expect to see it on this list much longer if that's the kind of second week drop it had.  Expect to see it outside the top 5 after this weekend.

Only other new release in the Top Ten was Pooh's Heffalump Movie.  Opening with only around 6M has got to be a disappointment to Disney.
