    @john-m Sh*t dude, you got me again. Hm I wonder why I thought that, I guess I saw it somewhere wrong or something.

      @crypt: You must have not seen it yet, because believe me it's rated R. All you have to do is look on this site to find out.

        @john-m You caught me there. Families will take the whole family to see Hotel, yet only one or two to a group to see Looper. Although I believe Looper is rated PG-13, not R, but I understand your point. I suppose I posted that comment out of anger towards most animated films in general, which are (often- not all the time) poorly produced because they can get away with a poor plot since little kids are too dumb to realize it. And also the humor in most children's movies are well... Childish. I cannot get into them at all. Wow, huge tangent so I'll stop now.

          Good for HT (granted, I have friends who worked on it, so my bias is showing). I'll have a review up shortly ... eventually ... :P

            Everyone else has probably already said this, but I might as well do it too... I am angry that Resident Evil is still up on that list and Dredd is gone... This is why I hate people... I hope Blueray/DVD sales are through the roof for Dredd so that we can somehow get a sequel

                @crypt: It's got nothing to do with the quality of the film. It has to do with the rating. Tell me which film do you think families would go to? The obvious answer is a film that isn't rated R. That's the reason children's films almost always beat out adult films especially R rated ones because you can take the whole family which means a bigger box office. It has nothing to do with the intelligence of the audience or the quality of the film.

                Though with films like Resident Evil keep getting made so I could be wrong about the intelligence of adults.

                  Too much for Hotel Transylvania... It's so simple and yet it beats a complex movie like Looper. Ugh. Damn simpletons.

                    @felipe-11 Huh, interesting. I'd like to see the Chinese version now.

                      @thedude1@dan1@bawnian-dexeus Actually the Chinese distributor even asked the studio to re-incorporate some of the Shangai scenes (which were cut for time) for the chinese release to incentivate viewers there. It's a shame they didn't keep those scenes for the US version too, I would've loved to see more of that futuristic China...

                      @john-m True. Dredd already has cult classic written all over it, but I'm still hopeful... But hey, cheer up, at least we get another Resident Evil movie! [sarcasm, obviously]

                        @bawnian-dexeus Wow I never thought of that until now. Maybe Jeff Daniels is indeed from the future.

                          @bawnian-dexeus Makes sense. They'd take pride in the main character finding solace in their country.

                            @dan1 Funny, how that one quote from Jeff Daniels about China and then, in the real world, it gives the movie a considerable boost.

                              @thedude1 That is pretty cool. China must be aggressively expanding its amount of theaters.

                                    Big news everyone. Looper made between 23 and 25 million dollars this weekend in China. The first time ever an opening movie made more in China than in North America. Great news for Looper. Huge success.

                                      I wasn't aware anyone had an interest in this movie. Thank you America for keeping Adam Sandler's career alive. [sarcasm]

                                          It's great for Looper that is already doing well overseas. It sucks though that Dredd 3D had done so badly domestically. It's a good film. Hopefully it will do great overseas. That's the only way it will garner a sequel. Other wise people are going to have to live with Dredd being a cult classic which I believe it will become.
