Bucket List Is Tops In The US
Old boys beat the youngsters

It was a strong few days at the US box office this weekend. Although there were no record breakers, the entire top ten made good numbers. In at number 1 was The Bucket List, a comedy that stars Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson as a pair of old boys fulfilling a list of dreams before they pop their clogs. The film took $19.5 million. That put it just $500,000 ahead of the number two movie First Sunday, a crime comedy starring Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan. Despite its lower haul, First Sunday actually had a higher screen average by $1800.

Still going great guns at number three was Jason Reitman's Juno, which added another $14 million to its total, putting it over the $70 million mark after 6 weeks. Those are amazing numbers for a low budget indie movie.

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything was a new entry at number 9 with $4.4 million. Pirates is the latest in the Veggie Tales series, a franchise of Christian-themed movies for children starring bouncing vegetables.

The only other new entry this week was In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, which, with $3.3 million, proved that there is sadly still an audience for the Uwe Boll oeuvre.

Hurray! Dr. Boll strikes again! For some reason I find the exotic German Boll so much more likeable than that other hot contender for the title of 'Worst Director Working at Present¨', monsieur Paul W. S. Anderson. Boll's charm is much more akin a modern day Ed Wood, while Anderson just messes with screenplays from quality writers (Soldier), kills classic franchises (AvP) and bonks Milla Jovovich. I think I'll give In The Name Of The King a try (as long as I don't have to pay anything for More

In the Name of the King
If you haven't done so yet, go look at the trailer for Boll's latest on It's magnificent, in a truly awful way! Particularly the Stath's attempt to deliver a piss-poor version of Leonidas' "tonight we dine in hell"-type speech! I'd almost be tempted to check this on dvd when it comes out, just to see if it's bad bad or guilty pleasure bad! More

in all seriousness, i think that people go see Uwe Boll films simpluy o see just how bad it will be. Saying that, i've never seen an Uwe Boll film because i don't think that they're released over here. More

OMG!!! Hopefully Mr.Boll's film won't be released here at all, please. Whoever, went and saw it has to be laughed at. More
