It was a crazy weekend ladies and gents. The box office challenge again had a staggering number of entries…4…4.

Let that settle in…4.

It didn’t help that Blogger crashed on Thursday/Friday, which is the home of where half of the contest lives.

Two entries were staples and one was an entry via the e-mail address.

The weekend was a bit crazy for the final #’s. Junior tied for first with Kenfu, but KENFU reigns supreme folks, via the date/time of the submissions. Now Junior, for his wide-eyed youthful wonder, pointed out something that I had overlooked on the weekend... Bridesmaids was an R-rated feature! All of the things that made this great are clearly what kept it from taking the top spot.


I will be posting a group of recent horror/alternative indie flicks later this week, as well as reviews for Bridesmaids (4 of 5 Horns) and Everything Must Go (4.5 of Horns).

This weekends sweetheart in my eyes was Everything Must Go…the Will Ferrell DRAMA. He knocked it out of the ballpark and showed us that he can absolutely act his ass off! More on that soon, I promise, as the film only drew $825,000 on 218 screens. Not a bad per theater average, but folks need to see this movie. It is one of those rare films that allows you to sympathize with the lead while teaching you something about yourself. Although, that may just be me.
