      I think this recent L.A. heat wave has fried my brain too much. I don't think I ever got predictions as wrong as this one. Will do better next week! Swear! @thedude1@superman81

            ...I read that "The Dark Knight Rises" Passed $400 Million At U.S. Box Office as of August 18, 201! Amazing!

              I'm seeing: "ParaNorman" on Sunday.

              "Sparkle" is only playing at one (1) theater in the Phoenix, Az area!!.

                HAHAHA! Brian you had to be out of your mind when you made these predictions. And saying you were out of your mind is being very generous.

                  Expendables 2 was miles above the first in my opinion. I was highly entertained the entire time. Deserves the #1 spot if it gets it.

                    How's your weekend predictions looking so far MW? ParaNorman made 4 million Friday, gonna take a whole hell of a lot to reach that horrendous number you guys predicted at 51 million.

                      Expendables 2 was pretty damn good. I just watched it and it was better than the first. My only beef, SPOILER ALERT: the fight between Van Damme and Stallone was way too rushed and it seemed like Stallone didn't care about Van Dammes character at all when he planned the sequel because he owns him the whole fight pretty much, and he went out like a punk. Stallones ego is way too big

                        I think Expendables will just edge out Paranorman with a little more than $30 mil.

                          I'm actually hoping ParaNorman and Frankenweenie do good.

                            ARE YOU HIGH? Paranorman will be lucky to cross $20 million. Expendables should be on top with around $30-$35. Saw Expendables today. A lot of fun. Very entertaining. way better than the first.

                              @superman81 I dunno how MW works bro. I'm still waiting for them to fix their review section bug. Can't upload a review if no one can see it

                                @bawnian-dexeus in the words of Bane, " and do you accept this sites decision"? how can they use info from another site and decide to make it their own by ignoring the RT meter?

                                  @superman81 On MW, anything above 70 is considered fresh

                                    @bawnian-dexeus Ahh ok I.got ya. Another thing MW can't seem to get right is the RT meter. 60% and higher is fresh yet they have the Campaign and Expendables 2 as rotten. I mean WTF movieweb, get your sh*t together.

                                        @superman81 I agree. I was only talking about this weekend.

                                          @bawnian-dexeus rises has another two months at least in theaters. It was at at 398 so add on the weekend numbers you got 410-412, I'm pretty sure its going to make more than 8 million in the next two months. I say 445-450
