    Damn it, I haven't had time to see Chronicle yet and everywhere I go I'm hearing it's good :(.

      Chronicle was awesome. The best film I have seen so far and amazingly well made for such a low budget film. The whole found footage feel made the film much better and I hope that the universe of Chronicle is expanded with future films.

            Chronicle completely surpassed my expectations, awesome film. You wouldn't believe it's a directorial debut.

            I wanted to check out Woman In Black too, but surprisingly it didn't open in any of my close-by AMC theaters...

                      @daveactor7 If Woman in Black is one of the best horror films in the last decade it probably deserves more attention than Chronicle. lol

                      Chronicle was a quality flick. Nothing great, but it was enjoyable for the most part. Cool to see it doing okay.

                          @daveactor7 I'm going to see it when it comes to my local dollar theater but from the trailers it looks so stupid and uninteresting to me.

                            Good for Chronicle. I haven't seen it, but it's nice to see small films win the box office.

                                Chronicle looks like pure trash. Can't believe it is number one. The Woman in Black was pretty good. A solid movie to watch.

                                  I TOLD YOU this would happen lol. More ppl are gonna see chronicle then Woman in black but damn this is pretty close. Chronicle totally deserves it though. Best movie of 2012 thus far and Woman in black? Best horror film in the past decade
