Weekend Box Office results: We're almost done with Twilight

With only 2 more insipid Twi-movies to endure, this last box office assault by the shiny vampires doesn't feel quite as bad. Oh, sure, the movie is that bad, even judging on a sliding scale like a lot of people seem to be doing, but the notion of this entire experience ALMOST being over is nice. Plus, as you all know, we are soooo close to seeing the batshit crazy ending to this whole shebang in blood-flicking 3D. Mmmmm. Other news of note: The Last Airbender is trying to survive, despite dialogue that feels like swimming in sulfuric acid. It may just cling to profitability long enough to become a series. If so, again let me remind the world that Shyamalan need not write to direct. Put him behind the camera and take his pen away.

Let's see how the weekend shaped up, haiku style:

1.) Twilight: Eclipse - $69 million (Accuracy of prediction - 79%)

A box office dip,
means this will not beat New Moon.
Small victory, folks.

2.) The Last Airbender - $40.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 97%)

The fan base is big.
That or deaf people loved it.
All of the words sucked.

3.) Toy Story 3 - $30 million (Accuracy of prediction - 90%)

Just passed $300
soon to be Pixar's top flick.
Good, but not my fave!

4.) Grown Ups - $18.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 99%)

Technically a hit,
but let me specify where:
It is in the nuts.

5.) Knight and Day - $10.5 million (Accuracy of prediction - 100%)

This is not Tom's fault.
We all know where the blame goes.
It's on YOU, Diaz!

Overall accuracy of prediction - 93%

I've been good lately.
The summer makes things easy.
I'll soon be sucking.

Okay, that's it gang. Happy Tuesday that looks and feels like a Monday!

It's reaaaaallly close, but I'd say Up. Wall-E and The Incredibles are close behind, but Up was just sooooo good.
