The Oscar Quest: Best Best Actress Choices

Well, this’ll be easy.

Ranking the best of any category is simple to do just because the decisions speak for themselves, either through the performance or through history. Or both.

Here are the best Best Actress choices, according to me: (more…)

The Oscar Quest: Worst Best Actress Choices

I’ve got some opinions on this one.

I’ll say right now — I don’t care about yours. The idea is that these decisions are not very good, out of all the Best Actress decisions of all time.

The Box Office Report – February 10-12

Last week, in Box Office…

Chronicle wins the weekend with $22 million. Coulda sworn I said that it would beat The Woman in Black. I don’t remember the numbers, but I could have sworn I said this would happen.

The Woman in Black finishes second with $20.8 million. Just looking at these numbers, I can tell that both films overperformed. I’m sure I won’t like either of them.

The Grey finishes third, dropping 52%, with $9.3 million. This was a pretty badass movie. I really enjoyed this one. I’m glad they made their budget back. This was definitely better than most January fare you’d normally see.

Big Miracle opened to fourth place, and what I imagine is a very disappointing $7.8 million, considering the $40 million price tag on this one. Quel dommage. (more…)
