Well, it was a slow weekend for the box office, but on a happy note, it wasn’t too hard to predict this one.

Voyage of the Dawn treader hit rough seas, with a relatively low numbers at the box office. Even with low numbers on Friday, that didn’t stop the third movie in The Chronicles of Narnia series from sailing into first place.

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie earned second place (probably for the first time in either of their lives). The reviews haven’t exactly been glowing, »

Oscar Update: 'The Social Network' Moves Back into the Best Picture Driver's Seat

6 December 2010 9:22 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jesse Eisenberg in The Social Network

Photo: Columbia Pictures The memories of Academy members have always been seen as short term. This isn't because of physical examinations performed by doctors or intense scientific studies, it's simply because the record shows that films released later in the year tend to take home the Oscar kudos more than those released earlier.

Certainly, there are exceptions to every rule and we had one just last year with the early summer release, The Hurt Locker, winning six Oscars including Best Picture. Before that, the May releases of Crash, Gladiator and Braveheart won Best Picture with other early releases such as Forrest Gump in 1994 and The Silence of the Lambs in 1992 taking the top prize. However, that's just six films out of the last 20 years that were released before August.

I don't say this as a major revelation, but it is a fact that has »

Oscar Update: Best Director and Supporting Actor Predictions and Clip from 'Rabbit Hole'

Christian Bale in The Fighter

Photo: Paramount Pictures I've been meaning to do an Oscar update for a while now, but not enough has really happened to generate too much conversation until just recently. Today I took a peek at my current predictions for Best Picture, Actor, Actress and the Supporting categories and only two categories really stood out in terms of needing some adjusting. The first was Best Supporting Actor.

Best Supporting Actor Rank Nominee 1 Christian Bale (The Fighter) 2 Geoffrey Rush (The King's Speech) 3 Sam Rockwell (Conviction) 4 Jeremy Renner (The Town) 5 John Hawkes (Winter's Bone) Click Here For Complete Chart With the recent screenings of The Fighter that took place in both New York and Los Angeles the response has been quite impressive so far. The overall opinion seems to insist the film is a certain Best Picture nominee and Christian Bale is the front-runner for Best Supporting Actor. »

Mediocrity was the name of the game this week, at least according to Bayer. None of the movies that made the top five seemed to do much for the critics here at Tsr, but that didn’t seem to stop audiences. Megamind led the box office favorites with a pretty impressive haul.

Todd PhillipsDue Date didn’t do too shabby either, coming in second place. The unlikely duo/ road trip comedy hasn’t really wowed critics, but it’s not about pleasing the critics, is it? It made enough money to secure itself another week or two on the top five, »

Oscar Update: Best Actress and Supporting Actress Prediction Updates

Annette Bening and Julianne Moore in The Kids are All Right

Photo: Focus Features As I pointed out yesterday, my Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress predictions went through a bit of a re-shuffle and instead of explaining everything going on with my thoughts on Lesley Manville's position for Another Year in a predictions piece I decided to put it all in one article so we could focus on the matter at hand today as opposed to debating her placement as lead vs. supporting.

Oscar Update - Part 2: Best Picture Prediction Updates

25 October 2010 10:39 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal in Love and Other Drugs

Photo: 20th Century Fox If you've been paying attention to my predictions along the way you pretty much already know I have a rather firm belief behind a certain number of films. Based on the films I've seen I am most certain the absolute locks for a Best Picture nomination are The King's Speech, The Social Network, 127 Hours, Black Swan, Toy Story 3 and Inception. This leaves four spots open and of those four spots I am banking on the Coen brothers' True Grit to be yet another lock (risky at this point in the game, but whatever). I'm basing this solely on the fact it's a Coen film and the reaction to the trailer from those that watched it online. This leaves me with three wild card choices.

The most prominent of those three is probably David O. Russell »

Oscar Predictions Updated: The Field is Beginning to Sort Itself Out

22 September 2010 1:46 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jesse Eisenberg in The Social Network

Photo: Columbia Pictures I finally saw David Fincher's The Social Network last night and will be taking in Secretariat only a few hours from now, leaving very few supposed Best Picture Oscar contenders left for me to see. By my count all that's left are the Coen brothers' True Grit, Sofia Coppola's Somewhere, Ed Zwick's Love and Other Drugs, Nigel Cole's Made in Dagenham and Peter Weir's The Way Back. Suffice to say, it's not even October yet and the majority of the Oscar contenders have already been seen and the bees are buzzing.

Following my eight days in Toronto at the Toronto International Film Festival it's surprising the number of major Oscar contenders have been seen and with Oscar pundits picking horses a bit too early in this race I think it gives films such as Somewhere, True Grit »

Well, Resident Evil:Afterlife cleaned up at the box office this weekend. It’s hard to tell whether it was the 3D gimmick or just the fact that nothing came out but I’m sure it doesn’t really matter to Paul W.S. Anderson or Milla Jovovich. Either way, the couple’s financial future is guaranteed if this keeps up.

The rest of the movies seemed to do a flip flop with Takers, which landed in third place last weekend, reclaiming its second place title. Sure, it’s a distant second, »

I’ll be the first to admit, The American came out of nowhere for me. I mean, sure, George Clooney is a box office draw but I’d only seen a couple TV spots for this one. Still, it managed to take the number one spot this weekend.

Then again, I was also pretty surprised that people actually wanted to see Takers, which only dropped to second place in its opening weekend. Still, as long as it’s not my money being spent on a Paul Walker movie, people are entitled to do their own thing.

The Expendables and all of its cast is back with a vengeance for a second weekend in a row. Despite a myriad of new releases, Sly Stallone and company claimed the box office again this weekend.

Vampires Suck turned out to be a surprise heavy hitter this past week. Despite the previews, which didn’t look too appealing to me personally, Vampires Suck had a respectable opening weekend, landing it in second place. Plus, it opened up on Wednesday and was able to suck a couple more »

It appears Sylvester Stallone doesn’t need steroids to pack a punch at the box office. The action blockbuster The Expendables led a decisive victory over the rest of the box office in its opening weekend.

Runner up is the Julia Roberts flick Eat Pray Love which has been getting just about everything but praise. The adaptation of the Elizabeth Gilbert memoir of the same name is just the latest from Glee creator Ryan Murphy, but it’s definitely got the female vote. »

Well, in my defense, I got the Friday numbers right, but by the weekend’s end, my predictions were pretty far off.

It didn’t take a genius to see that Inception would swept the box office again. The Nolan flick has received critical acclaim and box-office success in its two weeks of release and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping any time soon.

Salt ended up in second in its debut weekend. The Angelina Jolie spy thriller didn’t look terribly memorable, »

Pardon Me, But Have You Seen Any Gay Characters? How About You? You? Anyone?

I don't know who first dubbed the Television Critics Association Summer Tour the "Bataan Death March, but with cocktails" but it's a pretty apt description. Yep, it's that time of year as next week I fly off to Los Angeles to try and pry gay/bi secrets out of the actors, writers and so forth who bring us much of the TV we watch. 

First I put on something sexy, then I get them a little drunk, then I turn the music low. You know, your usual good investigative journalism tactics.

With that in mind, this week's column is again going to be a rather stream of consciousness as I'm not only getting ready to leave, but am also getting ready for our big relaunch next week. Talk about a full plate!

Studio Report: Paramount Easily Tops Second Quarter

2 July 2010 7:44 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Thanks to week after week of uninteresting, poorly marketed movies, the box office took a huge hit in the second quarter of 2010, all but erasing the massive gains seen during the first quarter. The situation has been so dire that each of the big six studios experienced decreases in revenue compared to the same quarter last year. Some fared better than others: Paramount Pictures easily led the way and became the first studio this year to cross the $1 billion mark. Overall box office was down around three percent versus second quarter 2009. 1.

This Column Is 100% Angst Free. And Made From 100% Angus Beef. Mmmmm!!!!

Okay, folks are going to be arriving soon to read this week's column and I've got to get ready. So where did I leave that flipping bottle of Prozac? Can't have a repeat of last week after all.

So the Prozac's not under the True Blood extended scene of Sam's dream sequence with Bill that Alan Ball sent over. And it's not under the hate mail from Ramin Setoodeh either. (And I really need to do something about that ticking package he sent.)

So where the eff did I leave it? Because after the last Bgwe, I really can't be all grumbly or I'll have fewer readers than Setoodeh. Well, okay, no one could fewer fans than he does, but still. Come on, come on! Where is it! They are going to be here any minute it!

True Blood'S Cast Of ... Thousands?

I'm not sure how much overlap there is between Gleekers and fans of True Blood, but I'm certainly happy that just as Kurt and Company exit stage right we have Lafayette, Sookie and the rest of the gang from Bon Temps returning this week. We need something really buzzy on TV to write about, no? Trust me, it's not going to be Rookie Blue.

So what did I think after watching the first three episodes? For starters I never imagined Maryann would return and hook up with Lafayette. Kidding! There's no sign's of Maryann excepting all the missing memories folks have about those orgies, and as for Lafayette, he is still his fierce, fabulous self.

Actually, I can't say much lest director Alan Ball send one of the werewolves to shut me up, although if that werewolf were Alcide (Joe Manganiello, pictured right), I might not complain too much. »

Which Is Gayer — Sex & The City 2 Or Prince Of Persia?

This week I caught screenings of Sex and the City 2 and Prince of Persia  which was interesting as both are of gay interest and open today. But if you can only see one this weekend, which should it be? I've put together a handy analysis to help you decide!

Does it have a gay icon?

SATC2: None other than Carrie Bradshaw! Plus Liza Minnelli!

Pop: Jack Twist is in the house! Yes, it's two time AfterElton Hot 100 champion Jake Gyllenhaal!

Which is more gay? Pop gets this category. Sorry, Carrie. Brokeback Mountain trumps all.

Does it celebrate heterosexual love and reinforce heteronormativity?

SATC2: Definitely. Carrie and Big, Carrie and Aiden, Samantha and anyone male.

Pop: Its budget was $150 million. So of course, Prince Dastan falls for Tamina and they live happily ever after.

Which is more gay? »
