Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    "Movies that Were Domestically in the Top 25 of 2013 but Not in the Worldwide Top 25: The Heat, We’re the Millers, Identity Thief, Grown Ups 2, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and Lee Daniels’ The Butler."

    Discounting the last two, it seems that the world has a better sense of humour than the US.

    Well, maybe not the French.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Or the Germans.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Nah. Our humour is just very, very subtle. That's why strangers don't get it first.

  • Mrs. Julien
  • Fabius_Maximus

    I see you understand.

  • Mrs. Julien

    It was one of the few times I ever laughed at 30 Rock.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Good morning Pajiba,
    I am back and intend to be precociously loquacious and use unnecessarily big words. You have been warned.
    Yours in Christ,
    Prolixity Julien

  • I want to buy you imaginary gifts.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I enjoy antimacassars, Daniels Craig, and foundation garments.

  • Mrs. Julien

    And a good morning to you, emmalita, angel of upvotes!

    Is lulu in the house?

  • A Good Day To Die Hard made nearly a third of a billion dollars.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Upvoted for creativity in method of self-punishment.

  • zeke_the_pig

    People actually went to see Oblivion? Well now I've seen everything.
    Except Oblivion.

  • Mrs. Julien

    The blackouts don't count?

  • zeke_the_pig

    Happy New Year btw Mrs J., hope it was a good 'un for you.

  • Mrs. Julien

    The last two weeks have been UGH!, but I appreciate the sentiment. Happy New Year, pig.

    Incidentally, "UGH!" is generally my penultimate exclamation before I am claimed by a blackout.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Sorry to hear that. I will see you in the blackout.

  • zeke_the_pig

    If only I knew...

  • Maddy

    Who is watching the Smurfs? I don't understand. I thought Elysium sucked, but I can at least understand the box office appeal

  • Pat Sponaugle

    Elysium is more interesting if you watch it with the concept that Spider is the main hero, and Matt Damon's character is just this loser that's helping him.

  • Three_nineteen

    Just so you know, Dustin, IMDB tells me that Noelle Clark is Mickey on Doctor Who, and his name is spelled Noel Clark, because he's a guy.

  • Stu Rat

    Not on Saturday Nights-then he's The Fabulous Noelle!

  • chanohack

    I'll give my money to that movie.

  • I reviewed 5 of the 15 worst performing movies, and 3 of the 25 best performing movies. Clearly I need to work my way up in seniority, possibly Highlander style.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Start with TK. PLEASE start with TK!

  • Mrs. Julien

    You start with TK, you better be willing to finish with TK.

  • I'd have to finish with TK. I mean if anyone on the staff is the Kurgen, it's TK.

  • Stu Rat

    There can be only one?

    That won't help, you'll still be stuck reviewing ALL the bad movies, and all the good ones, and all the mediocre ones, and the remakes, reboots, sequels and prequels. Nice plan.

  • Uriah_Creep

    So, watch your head, Dan Carlson?

  • manting

    beware the Kurgen.
