I want The Dark Tower to be really good, but I don't think it will be.  I also don't think it will be completely horrible.

Thus  the "eh" position for it on my RT list and absence from my BO list.

Watch it be either the sleeper hit of the late summer or a colossal failure of epic proportions and totally screw over my ballot. 

Then I will go to the parking lot and slash someone's tires at random.

Guardians deadline is today?! 

Yes!  I wanted to point this out.

p.s. CHiPS is conclusive proof that remakes of old tv shows don't draw and Hercules is conclusive proof that the Rock doesn't draw.  21 What Street?  San And-who?

Hail Sabin was entrant #15.  Add THE INTERIOR to the list of prizes.

I was going back and forth because of that damn movie. I was like it looks so stupid, but stupid cartoon movies make money. But this can't possibly make money.

I think we are all fucked if Valerian isn't a bad Mexican Shit bomb that it feels like. Potential franchise starters with long names like that HAVE  to be a bomb. . . .right?

Besson is a weird one for me. I remember my whole rationale for having Lucy low on my RT list is that all his recent films haven't done well critically. I think this might help determine if Lucy was an outlier, or that he got his groove back.

Not sure if I made it on time for Guardians and I didn't get to research like I usually do for these things (sigh), but as a recently unemployed newscaster once said, "Fuck it. We'll do it LIVE!"

ivpvideos was entrant #18, so... I believe we're adding recent Best Foreign Film winner THE SALESMAN to the prize list.

While both participating in a production of "Death of a Salesman," a teacher's wife is assaulted in her new home, which leaves him determined to find the perpetrator over his wife's traumatized objections.

Anyone thinks this summer looks as if it's going to be a bad year for summer blockbusters?

I'm interested in Baby Driver, Atomic Blonde, and Wonder Woman, but I don't consider the first two true blockbuster summer flicks.

I looked at my list again, and I have no idea why I put Planet of the Apes sequel so high on my RT list.  Drunk.

I have no idea what to make of VALERIAN or DARK TOWER. I'm *hoping* that VALERIAN is fun and wild and a spiritual successor to FIFTH ELEMENT... but it could also be incoherent crap. And even if IS fun and crazy, it still may not do any box office. So I just stayed away entirely. I just can't get a read on DARK TOWER, critically or box office-wise.

Based on the current fan reaction from screening, people may have been a little too hard on Legend of the Sword.  If that sentiment reflects with the critics, it might settle around 45%-60% which isn't bad compared to what everyone expects. In comparison, the early reaction for Covenant is split and contentious at best. Both of those films might be in the same range when all is said and done.

Usually crowd reaction is higher than critics

Not saying you are wrong but I am still waiting for actual reviews to come in

Granted King Arthur won't bone me as much as say Dark Tower will if it is good

Yeah, I kinda took that into consideration. This more or less seems like acceptable dumb fantasy action movie w/ comedy thrown in. The negative reviews I've seem to be more aimed at Guy Ritchie than the actual film although some of the people who liked it seem to admit there are tonal issues and shit happening out of nowhere. If a good majority of critic reviews (which should be out pretty soon) let some of those things slide, it could end up in a range much higher than people expected. On the other hand, they could lambast it and go to town. Either way, this wasn't as safe a pick as anyone expected.
