I saw it this weekend in one of those theaters that has big plush lazy boy style chairs. I had fun with it... but I couldn't help thinking how it would have made a great video game.

I finally saw Monsters University, fantastic and funny. Not as unique as the first, as it follows a very basic 80s college-movie plot (A contest will change policy!) but almost as good.

Those aren't good numbers for a Riddick sequel. I wonder what the worldwide stats are.

Universal predicted it would make 18-20 mill this weekend, so although it's not amazing, apparently it's what they expected.

Box Office Mojo shows it made about 7 million overseas, so it looks like it only opened in one or two countries so far.

It only cost 38 million to make, so they'll make their money back plus some, but I don't think it really gives Universal a lot of confidence for a sequel. Though they'll turn a profit without even advertising it much.

I hear Vinny has a lot of skin in the game with Riddick. I hope a failure here doesn't ruin his chances for Fast and the Furious 124.

World's End was enjoyable, but definitely the weakest of the "trilogy". Great one-liners, fun action, confusing wrap-up. If you're not anxious to see it, or a huge Pegg/Frost fan, I'd say wait for later.

I'm torn on Riddick. It's taken me multiple viewings to enjoy the other movies, so I don't want to go see this in theaters and not enjoy it, but I've also ended up *really* liking the other movies, so...
What I'm most curious about is the comparisons people are drawing to Pitch Black. In my experience, people on the internet, including here, are full of shit and just spout off whatever the popular sentiment is. I'm not sure if it's *actually* that similar, or if there are just a couple similar points so people are going "zomgitsthesame".

Nothing out that I want to see and haven't. The new Ender's Game preview with World's End was pretty good. There was another preview I saw in there that I liked, but I forgot what the movie was (not coming out for a while).

I found the first half to be boring and the movie overall to not be very funny at all, especially compared to his previous movies. I was confused at all the good reviews it's gotten.
