    @brian: Hmmm..well to sort of poke fun at Rotten Tomatoes, how about for a great movie we have a "Fresh Batch of Popcorn", a good movie we have "A Couple of Beverages" and for a bad movie, "A Bag filled with Burnt, Black Popcorn"! Hehe. :P

      @corey Thx. Trying to actually come up with some icons that signify our reviews here on MW. Kinda like how Rotten has 3 icons for an extremely good movie, a good movie and a bad movie. Let me know if you guys have any ideas!

        I like the new percentage for MW. The star is cool. Nice @movieweb@brian.

              crazy prediction, this weekend will be Thor or Brides Maids. throwing it out there, i think Brides Maids is a sleeper. looks like a kinda raunchy chick flick that might actually be funny for guys too. it will have female appeal which is always a big draw for the box office. priest won't do much at all. it reminds me of I Am Legend, but doesn't have the big name actor.

                Only films for this weekend to compete against Thor is Fast Five, Priest and Hesher, and I'll also include Rio...It's been doing it's great.

                              @superman81 you make a good point with fast five, but you have to understand that, it has a franchise, the fifth in a series, and so it has a built in fanbase... thor has a geek fanbase. also fast five had star power... yes it seems that the only films that do well for the stars is the "furious" films but it is what it is.

                                  From what I have read studios want to use 3D more cause it keeps people from bootlegging. I know it does no good if u have it come out in 2D as well but that's what I read. Maybe u will see more markets start to only have the 3D version. Most boot leg movies I see are from over seas anyways. So jacking up prices here ain't helping

                                        Yeah 3d schedule had less waiting period, the 2d if miss one from that time you had to wait 2hours or more unfair.

                                          3D is becoming a problem now, more than it already was
