Hey, did you guys know that Netflix lets you stream most of Guy Maddin's movies over your WiiStation 3? Also that Criterion put out Blu-rays of Lola Montès and Black Narcissus that, if one is craving some manner of "eye candy" (yuck), are like melting a Kit-Kat on your sclera? We don't have to see the 3D cats or the non-spectacle of C. Nolan's tiny imagination or be sad that the 3D cats stole more money from children's parents than the much nicer movie about Ramona and Beezus, which if you do not trust my opinion about, here are the more trustworthy Dennis Cozzalio's comments on the same.
Anywhat, this weekend I was drinking some fine Cold Ones and glancing at the boffo boxface reports and saw that Internet people are still very concerned about what these mean for the jobs of people who they don't know. e.g.— I actually read this one fellow, who I am too civilized to link to, saying that these particular Scott the Pilgrim money figures "prove that geek culture is not mainstream culture." I didn't look at this movie yet, but isn't it like a bunch of Mario Bros. jokes, and the dude is playing a rock guitar on the poster? It's not like the movie's about a Texas Instruments graphing calculator that learns to read David Brin novels. Why does this Prove anything to anyone about anything? Also e.g.— that M.E. Winstead is a b.o. poison, first sinking Grindhouse, now Scottish Pilgrim! If it weren't for this crazy dame, people would flock to see tributes to the exploitation movies of the '70s and adaptations of Canadian romance comics! Now, I certainly made up the second e.g., but you know the sort of discussions of which I speak.
I'll tell you what the puzzling thing is: the crap performance of Step Up 3D. Because seeing awesome dancing on a big screen is something that everyone in the world who is not a creep likes to see. Maybe someone in marketing put a wrong demographic in their blanket release of a multiplier.
Basically what I'm saying is, people, all that matters is what makes you happy. And lists about money never make anyone happy.
