    Thanks for posting the 3rd weekend stats, Osiris-Rex.

    I'm wondering how high Joker can go domestically.

    Can it beat the $330 million domestic of Batman v Superman? The $335 million domestic of...
  2. Poll: JOKER BOX OFFICE - Could it hit ONE BILLION?

    I, too, thought the Batman-related stuff should have been excised and that Gotham City should not have been mentioned by name. It took me out of the movie's internal reality. The film was clearly...

    DALLAS - should have ended with Season 7 (referred to as "Season 8" on the DVD sets) when Bobby died. The Bobby-less season was boring, but bringing him back did not restore Dallas to what it was. ...

    I love Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, and I will defend it to my dying day.

    I don't think any of these characters could hold a movie without playing against the superheroes they normally do. I suppose you could do a Kingpin crime movie, but why? I don't see that movie...

    Millennium was not bad, but I think it was seen as a step down from Crisis and Legends.
