    Why weekly box office ranking means shit Part 99… decided to look up what Marvel/DC movies had spent 6+ weeks in the Top 5, since I thought it’s pretty impressive for SS, and sure enough none of the Iron Man movies managed it. TDK and Burton’s original BATMAN are only DC films. For off-brand Marvel you only have DEADPOOL and Raimi’s first SPIDER-MAN….and then in the MCU you have GUARDIANS, AVENGERS 1, WINTER SOLDIER…and the immortal THOR: THE DARK WORLD! Ooookay then!

    Is THE DISAPPOINTMENTS ROOM a movie about Relativity’s Board of Directors meetings?

    Yes obviously it’s very much based on the release date and the time of year of a film is released – Guardians and SS were both helped by having those early August release dates. Kinda surprised that the first Iron Man couldn’t pull it off….but those early May opening slots bring on tons of competition.

    And by the end of the weekend SS would have better legs than Civil War. Who saw that coming after the Squad’s week 2?

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
