I expected a $20 million opening. The first did well in rentals and dumb action films with bald guys seemed to be in at the time.

i did.. i honestly didn't think my own complete lack of interest would be shared by the movie-going public

i mean, what did the new Fast & Furious have to offer that a new Crank didn't? (it's a serious question--i've never seen any installment of either franchise)

Well, I have seen Crank, The first, second, and ten minutes of the new F&F, and to be honest NSpan...Nothing. They're almost all pretty much offering the exact same thing: Lots of ridiculous over-the-top action, hot half-naked women, bad-ass guys doing bad-ass stuff...I guess maybe Vin Deisel and Paul Walker really ARE the draw for that kind of thing. I think Boush said it earlier, Statham really isn't a viable BO draw...And maybe people are realizing that literally ALL of his movies are the exact same thing? I can only hope.

Banks, I really wouldn't say that Statham is the new action hero. He's more Bronson than Schwarzenegger, as in "average at the box office but can entertain and manages the cult audience on DVD". The Bank Job, Crank and Transporter 1 and 3 did average box office but were huge hits on DVD.

Dude needs to go back to England and beg Guy Ritchie for a good role is what he needs to do.

Maybe Stallone can make him some money with the Expendables...

I, unfortunately and against better judgment, saw Crank 2 yesterday. Possibly the worst movie I've ever seen, and I've seen alot...

Pretty disappointed that Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas) did the score...

I held on to 'Crank 2' but only because I thought that two weekends would give it more box office than a single weekend of 'Obsessed.'

I'm surprised by Crank 2 bombing, but i guess that is why the studio released it in August. I'm sure it'll find an audience on DVD though.

Yeah, I did that in one league.. And I'm obsessive compulsive about putting it on my slates. I'll probably see it 17 times on the first weekend just to pad my stats... No, actually, I'll probably never watch it. Maybe I'll rate it a "10" on six fake IMDB names? No, I probably won't do that either...

With one week to go in Round Two of the Super Leagues, here's how the Green and Red Zone are shaping up.

Ultimate Full-Year R2 (# of players cut: 3)
In the most danger: A_Roode, binkley
On the bubble: delfinasu, TBB, Nycguy84, becs, Girls_with_Glasses
Green Zone: Shrykespeare, Aquamann, Donte77
Could sneak in for an IM: Scripps, jas_8382, brockman81 (depending on how well Obsessed opens)

Ultimate Half-Year R2 (# of players cut: 11)
In the most danger: numbersix, TBB, A_Roode
On the bubble: Buscemi, binkley, annyonggob888, Dantic, Chienfantome, leestu, englishozzy, chugsthemonkey, Walleye413, transformers2, delfinasu, Girls_with_Glasses
Green Zone: Shrykespeare, Aquamann
Could sneak in for an IM: J-Man (who actually already has one)

Box Office Full-Year R2 (# of players cut: 6)
In the most danger: Teh_Sham, Buscemi
On the bubble: Chienfantome, BanksIsDaFuture, SamIAm1000, wesvolk, binkley
Green Zone: geezer, JohnErle, wcrew2000
Could sneak in for an IM: jas_8382

Box Office Half-Year R2 (# of players cut: 12)
In the most danger: leestu, Keyser Soze, SamIAm1000, Teh_Sham
On the bubble: SuperShaan, silversurfer, akibaali, rasgriz, SWarehouse, jjtkaze, packpaljs, A_Roode, JackO, Slade605, Mister Informative, Buscemi, jfs556
Green Zone: numbersix, geezer (who already has an IM)
Could sneak in for an IM: wcrew2000 (but probably won't)


Regulars Ultimate League "The Oscars"

Aquamann takes the lead, and is unlikely to relinquish it. Dammit.


Regulars Box Office League "Pushing the Envelopes"

geezer takes over the lead with one week to go, AND he still has Obsessed. Holy shit, dude, that's two in a row!!


By the way, the themes for the May Regulars leagues are as follows:

Ultimate: "Top Gun" (chosen by codeslinger)
Box Office: "Shawshank Redemption" (chosen by geezer)

I'm pretty happy with how I've been playing so far. The only super leagues I've been in were last year's second halfs and I believe I survived a total of one round between the two. I made it through the first two rounds AND have pretty good looking slates for round 3. Smile
