You must have missed where he pointed that it bombed, so therefore it couldn't possibly be good. As we all know, films that do poorly financially aren't good.

Yay for judging books by their covers!

I also tend to look for involvement from anyone with actual talent involved with the project and I am afraid theres not much to be found here.

Well, Half Blood Prince has an estimate of $920,000 which takes it to $298,856,000. It is going to do $300 Million domestic on fumes.

LOL! Or the point where it's sitting at 33% rotten on RT.com. So no, the critics say it sucked. I'll defer to them until it comes out on cable. Not about to waste 8 bucks after seeing the trailer. And nowhere did I say that films that do poorly at the box office are not any good.

You would think some people would have learned by now, but they actively bait him.

It is? I guess the trailers were misleading. Go figure.

Is it a near classic?

Naaa... not anywhere near that, just a good, solid campy slasher flick. There's not a serious word in the movie, and I appreciated that. Most of it was legitimately funny and some of those chicks played bitches really well. Basically it was just an enjoyable couple hours at the movies, which seems to be a dirty phrase anymore.

I enjoyed Sorority Row, it was a fun slasher film.

That doesn't make sense..so..you only look for established names? Kinda kills what new talent pops out and you failed to see it.

PS..I'll never watch Soririty Row...good or (heavily assuming it's) bad, it's just not my piece of cake.

A lot better than those films. If you like the 80s/early 90s slashers, check it out. If you don't like them don't bother with this one. It's a slasher film, and doesn't really try to be anything else.

What the hell? Ice Age 3 is now the 3rd highest grossing movie in terms of foreign gross, behind Titanic and Return of the King (unadjusted). Overall (including the US) it's only #18 but those foreign countries love their CG dinos.

Foreign Total: $667,091,034

Domestic Total: $194,688,731

Total: $861,779,765

Kind of dumbfounded by this one.
