Even with an impending 50% drop, it looks as if The Hobbit is going to win the weekend, but Will Ferrell and company are putting up a big fight. Had Anchorman opened on Friday, the demand might have put it higher, but with a spread out 5 day weekend.
2) Anchorman 2- 30M Weekend, 45M Total
The hit comedy managed 8M on Wednesday, putting it on a fast track for a huge weekend, heading into an even bigger Christmas. The counter programming here is perfect, as it is really unlike everything else in the top 10. An Anchorman 3 seems l...

First of all, I have no idea who TD Jakes is, or why he gets to put his name above the title. Apparently, he produces a lot of black movies, most are christian themed. Winnie Mandela should have been able to live off of the names of the top 2 stars. I always get nervous when I don’t hate a film that has less than 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. I had this problem earlier this year when I actually enjoyed The Host. I also find myself in the same predicament when I dislike a f...

You can never count Woody Allen out as a director. Just when you think he’s in a rut he turns around and gives you one of his best films, and also one of the best films of the year. Two years ago he directed the fantastic Midnight In Paris, only to follow it up with the forgettable (but alright) To Rome With Love. Inbetween Midnight In Paris and Vicky Cristina Barcelona were the mediocre Whatev...

You’ve probably heard that Robert Redford gives his career best performance this year in All Is Lost. It’s certainly his most daring piece, as any piece would be where you are the only person in the cast. Add on top the fact that he spends the whole movie battling the elements at sea, in a largely dialogue free film, and you’ve got the makings of a career best performance. But let’s not be hasty. This is not Channing Tatum we’re talking about, or Chris Evans. This is Robert Freaking Redford. Yes, the Academy hasn’t be...

Congratulations to Kyle Patrick Alvarez for writing the least likable protagonist of 2013! Much like the brain dead teenagers in Spring Breakers, David (Jonathan Groff) is painful to watch on screen. Like, banging your head against a wall bad. He’s so incredibly pretentious, so incredibly above his experiences, and totally out of touch. He’s a preppy rich kid “slumming” it by picking some damn apples. How this...
