Weekend Box Office. What did you see?

"I enjoyed The Hustle... Always nice to see Anne Hathaway in comedies...wondering if Meryl coached her on all those accents!" - me

"My friend and I watched Under the Silver Lake last week and to this day, I still don’t know what it is about. 😔Same friend insisted that we watch Wine Country on Netflix and somehow only the white wine joke made me laugh." - goodbar

Beauty vs Beast: Pre Endgame

Jason Adams from MNPP here with this week's "Beauty vs Beast" -- a little movie called Avengers: Endgame will be hitting a couple of screens this weekend (we count Thursday nights are "the weekend" now in blockbuster world) with the blunt force of a megaton bomb; this time next week it'll be nothing but breathless box office masticating and eulogies for the fallen. So today, in the ever so brief calm before that oblivion, let's look back at last year's Infinity War appetizer and face down the great big goof heard round the galaxy -- that time Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) let his emotions get the best of him and let Thanos (Josh Brolin) live to snap another day... 


PREVIOUSLY While every week is a good week to be Emma Thompson Week last week we made it official in honor of her 60th birthday, and the Merchant Ivory character to top them all turned out to be, with 68% of your vote, Margaret from Howard's End. Said Marsha Mason:

"Remains of the Day is the better film imo, but her performance in Howards End sticks with me a little more."

Star-Lord/Chris Pratt's shtick has gotten increasingly dull since GOTG 1. Plus Thanos is right.

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSawyer

I want Thanos to kill them all so Marvel can just die already.

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

Ditto what Suzanne said. And fuck Star-Lord

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBVR

I am a Star-Lord defender. Who among us wouldn't want revenge if you could not longer sleep with Zoe Saldana?

Sawyer: Hi, anyone who thinks Thanos is right is a nearly irredeemable jackass. Wanting Thanos to win because they're tired with the genre or Marvel Studios' take on the genre (as much as I'm definitely not in the former camp, I'm getting there in terms of the latter camp) is, at least, not psychotically amoral.

Volvagia - Are you okay?

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterbeyaccount

Just like Jennifer Lawrence ran circles around him in Passengers, Brolin literally ran galaxies around him.

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTom G.

beyaccount: Yeah, just "Thanos is right" is just one of those "I am so tired" opinions.

One of my pet peaves: Not only do Thursdays now count as the weekend for box office reciepts, but it went from Thursday at midnight (which I could see, since that would actually make it Friday morning) to Thursday at 7 PM and somehow Thursday is not reported as a day unto itself. It's rolled into Friday.

With that said, I'm one of those contrary people who still loves Chris Pratt. His days on Everwood and Parks and Recreation have afforded him a lot of good will with me even if lately he seems to really be living up to his last name.

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTommy Marx

Star-Lord. And Volvagia is correct: Anyone who says 'Thanos was right' is a jackass.

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterPoliVamp

“Why not just double the resources?” “......*snaps fingers*”

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterkris01

I'll second that Suzanne

April 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterKl

Instead of watching this I would rather see "Shazam" again

April 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

But yeah Star Lord all the way!

April 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

Sorry, rereading my comments I took it too far. I am planning my own blog so that my comments don’t get overlong and super tangential as I am wont to do. I see derailing comment sections is not in the spirit of things.

April 24, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

Volvagia, for true self contemplation and a desire to grow as a commenter and a person, Condragulations you are the winner of this week’s challenge.
