Time to take a break from this incessant homework. I should've figured Battle: Los Angeles would be a #1 spot candidate at the box office. Where else would it belong? I mean, besides just another space filler in the 'Disaster Movie' section of the last video store on earth... let's see where they file 2012... yup! "Disaster!" Great stuff. But I must say that a bad new tradition of off-center explosions in the sky is taking hold in Hollywood. I saw the opening sequence of The Losers, and it didn't look good! Looked like the explosion could've been centered a little better, maybe make it a little farther away, something. They used the quick and dirty rendering for that one. You get what you pay for, and $25 million doesn't go as far as it used to on the silver screen. They're eventually going to have a division of DC Comics called DC-Banned from the Ranch.
Meanwhile, Rango's still riding high at #2, and Red Riding Hood opens strong at #3. Poor Amanda Seyfried. She's the new Christine Ebersole! Wait... there. That's more like it. But let's face it: Amanda's not making any headway in Hollywood. She had three films last year, and the year before that, and Big Love on HBO. Now this year... still 3 films and Big Love! When you're doing one film a year like Angelina or Tom Cruise.. now THAT's the big time right there! As Letterman would say, THERE'S your big time Hollywood actor right there. Now let's get this tryst over with, my wife's due back from the store any minute.. HEE HEE HEE!!!
Debuting at a miserable #5, Mars is still in need of females. And just like Earth, they've also gone MILF crazy, and have graduated from needing women to needing moms. Must be a demographic shift of some kind. But where Mars Needs Women cost only $20,000 to make, Lord knows what Walt Disney's cryogenically frozen head slapped down on the barrelhead for this sweet baby! But they're not telling. Not like with that Dinosaur (2000) debacle. SHEESH!!!
