2019 Summer Blockbuster Movie Pool


Recommended Posts

So Dora opened with $17 million

It was actually third in just kids movies (behind Scary Stories to tell in the Dark and The Lion King)

I would like to believe that it will be able to pass that block of 4 movies at the end that range from $20 million to $29 million but who the fuck knows

PlayMobil is on general release in Europe right now. Seems odd to postpone the USA release so far and not do the same internationally.

Since it came out in Europe it has a RT score now

24%

So for the sake of my ballot - it is probably a good thing it didn't get released in America

New people in first and last place this week.  Looks like Dora's RT placement is what sunk some people.

To me the biggest surprises of the 2019 Summer Blockbuster Pool: The Lion King's rotten rating on rottentomatoes.com and how Dora & the Lost City of Gold is 83% fresh there. I really dodged a bullet by skipping Dora on my lists especially the Rotten Tomatoes one. Didn't expect them to go this way.

You know, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised. Jumanji II was a hit, Jungle Boy is over like crazy, and now Dora is big with critics. Maybe the jungle genre is just in right now.

Good points.

So I am guessing the only things left to be settled are

  • How high does Hobbs & Shaw get on the BO list?
  • How high does Dora get on the BO list?
  • Does Dora catch OUATIH on the RT list? (Doubtful)
  • Does Hobbs and Shaw tumble below Pikachu on RT? (Also doubtful)

What's interesting about Dora is, while the reviews are mostly positive, they averaged adjusted score is only 6.42/10.

So it's getting a lot of "yeah, it was okay" reactions.

I cannot believe Lion King's RT did not sink me permanently.

Almost at the finish line!
