I can not imagine a more boring superhero movie. That film was a snoozefest times a thousand.

Channing Tatum as the new Spider-Man.

I'm calling it right now.

Savages was quite good. No clue why it's being beat by an unclever derivative ripoff reboot.

FTFA: The newest major studio film, Oliver Stone's adult crime drama Savages, is looking like $16.1M for the weekend. That's a better than expected opening for a violent 'Hard R' pic with no proven stars.

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but just because a certain actor I like is in a movie doesn't mean I'm already lining up at the gates. The trailer determines whether I will go see it or not. I've known a lot of good actors to take shiatty roles. Now a director on the other hand can sell me just on name alone, provided they didn't totally screw something up on their last outing.

Spiderman: I keep forgetting it's out but I'll probably see it at some point.
Ted: Pass. I've heard it's funny but Mark Wahlberg annoys the hell out of me.
Savages: I'll need to hear some word of mouth first.
The Dark Knight Rises: NAOW!!!!
Magic Mike: I'm not impressed. In high school, the ladies called me Special Ed.

It's just the opposite with me.

I can watch anything with Mark Wahlberg in it, but Seth MacFarlane aggravates me to the point of screaming at otters.

MacFarlane is very annoying but he doesn't even really blip my radar anymore. I've watched nothing of his in awhile except for American Dad and I'm starting to wonder just how much he actually has to do with it anymore since it's still pretty damn funny. I've always hated Wahlberg cause he always reminds me of the upper middle class white kids that run around here acting street. Farkers haven't seen a bad day ever and they would shiat their pants if they ever met a real hard-ass. But to each their own.

BTW, I'm on disc 2 of Justified. I think I'm going to like it just fine. Thanks for the tip.

I tease Mark a lot, 'cause we got him on the spot.

With the money 'Ted' is pulling in, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a sequel.

because savages is playing on 2,628 screens and rated R while Spiderman is playing on 4,318 screens and rated PG-13.

It's funny as hell,but it certainly does NOT need a sequel-which means that,yeah,one will be greenlit once McFarlane seems the cash-laden wheelbarrow at his front door.

So just who the fark are Benicio del Toro and Salma Hayek?
 
2012-07-08 02:54:23 PM  
Just want to pop in and say that Ted was great. It's an original film. Not a reboot, sequel, prequel, or an adaptation. A rarity these days for blockbusters. Funny in the right places, extremely bizarre in the right places.. heartfelt, well-acted and a good script. So many quotable lines it may be this generation's Super Troopers. Also: Mila Kunis. Go see it--if you don't laugh for 90% of the film there's seriously a stick up your ass.

Or just go see the 90238403894th comic book movie rehash.

What? Come on, man.

Don't look at me like that.

You know what that smells like, right? Don't tell me this smell don't remind you of a woman. God, I miss that smell, man. I mean, the job I had on the outside wasn't much better than this one, but at least I got to go home every night, and lie down next to that sweet smell, man. God, I miss that.

You got a woman? Yeah, you got a woman, man.

Let me give you some advice, all right? When she comes to visit you...whatever you do, no matter what, don't let her leave here in a fight, man. Don't let her walk out of here with a bad attitude, 'cause if you do, you spend the next week wondering, if she's getting her fark on with somebody else.

You know what I'm saying?

So when she comes to see you, man. There's nothing but sweet talk through that glass, man. Send her away floating, all right? 'Cause it's not like the real world, you know what I'm saying? Where you can fight, but it's cool to fight, 'cause you could make up and have that make up sex. You know what I'm saying?

That angry sex.

That sex with an attitude.

Where you just lay on your back, and let her take out all that aggression on you. All guys know that, man.

It's that good sex.

It's that pow, pow, pow. Let her get on top. She's going to punish you first. (falsetto voice) "You've been a bad boy, huh? You've been a bad boy? I'm going to punish you, and I'm going to put it on you. Don't you ever... let... me... catch... you ...looking at...another...woman. Yeah, yeah. I may forgive you, if you bring it. I think I can. I -- I forgive. I forgive. Oh, right there. Right there. You're hitting it. My spot. That's it. Right. Yeah. Yes, yes. I for-I forgive you. I forgive you. I for -- I for - I for - I forgive you. I love you!

Eh, I thought Savages was just okay. It had it's moments, and is certainly better than a lot out there, but not as good as it could've been. And the shenanigans in the third act were beyond stupid.
 
2012-07-08 02:59:01 PM  
I saw Savages last week and liked it. Noy sure how it warrants a description as 'full of no names' when it has Travolta, Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Blake Lively and one of the central characters from Friday Night Lights in it.

Also saw Magic Mike a couple weeks ago and thought it was a blast.

Took my wife and daughter to the Katy Perry movie. The first two thirds were pretty good but then it takes a big sharp nosedive into downerville with her marriage split-up. They try to save it at the end with a couple of more rousing concert clips but by then it was too late. I ended up leaving the theater depressed.
 
2012-07-08 03:04:05 PM  
Why is there a Spiderman reboot? The last one was just 10 years ago. Damn, at least give a film 25 years before you try and bury it with a remake. If you must remake a movie before than at least remake a bad movie and try and do it right. There are so many movies that could have been gems if it wasn't for some bad casting or a silly script rewrite. Redo those movies!

If it had been marketed as such,it *might* have had a chance at breaking even. But alas,they decided to go with something far less substantial-her life while on tour. Serves them right.

I'm not so sure a Family Guy movie wouldn't wind up with being rated NC-17.

Really at this point the best we can hope for is some cross licencing deal where Spidey could be "rented" or something.

Just for the sake of discussion, a movie that costs $250 million that pulls in $250 million at the box office does not technically break even. It still has quite a ways to go.

I enjoyed the reboot of Spiderman, but Spiderman felt like a hipster who had issues with women, and wanted to control them. Also the Stan Lee cameo was awesome.
 
2012-07-08 03:25:05 PM  
One question for those who have seen Savages? Is there anything in the movie (outisde of Salma Hayek's boobies and Blake Lively's ass) that I won't see done better when Breaking Bad comes back in next week?
 
2012-07-08 03:26:56 PM  
Ted was the funniest movie I've seen in a while. Crazy funny. I would pay to see it again.
 
2012-07-08 03:27:57 PM  
Is it just me or has the bar really been lowered for movies?
There are only 3 movies below 50% on rottentomatoes. Not that I care about any single critic, but I do use RT's consensus as a guide. I have a hard time believing everything out right now is good.

Also it seems that ever since Ironman every comic book movie is rated 70% or so. I haven't seen any that I thought were that good, and some I thought were tired.

Then Green Lantern was rated pretty low and I liked that one.

BalugaJoe: How did Moonrise Kingdom do?


It cost $16 million to make and pulled in a little over $26 million in the US ($37 million in total when you factor in worldwide ticket sales).

For a Wes Anderson movie, that ain't too shabby. If you don't adjust ticket sales for inflation, only The Royal Tennenbaums did better than Moonrise Kingdom thus far.

Don't most movies these day have deals where the studio gets the lion's share of the first weekend's box office, with the theater getting a higher share in later weeks? Also, if you have the budget made back by the end of the first week, you're in pretty good shape with a movie because you still have several weeks to go, not to mention foreign box office, home video, television, and other ways to still make money off of the movie after the theatrical run. For a low budget concert movie, the weekend numbers seem to indictate that they'll get decent ROI on the movie by the time all is said and done.

Hell, these days they seem to think you can make money by showing remastered versions of mediocre Star Trek TNG episodes (we're talking clean shaven Riker era), so it seems like you can still make some decent money without raking in Avengers sized profits.

The budget is only $45 million and that's about what I would expect from an R movie released in the summer against a big blockbuster like Spider-Man. If the studio really opened it this week expecting it to have legs they should be pretty happy. Hasn't opened overseas yet either. It should make a tidy profit. And Kitsch is actually getting good reviews in this one.

In the first week it's not that big a cut. The movie will be more than profitable.

Also, Savages is doing pretty well really. Hit projections and is on the fewest screens of anything in the top 5/
