I’m glad that Bridesmaids did very well for itself at the box office. It was only #2 with a bit over $26 million, but that was better than most people predicted and really great for a movie that cost $32 million. It will hopefully prove to Hollywood that if they make good and funny comedies by and about women, they can be a success. The time is now to tear down the ghetto of shitty romantic comedies. Are you with me?
What else? A Serbian Film. Meh, I’ve said enough about that already. Time to move on.
A brief blog note, I’ve restored the Recent Reviews sidebar item just below the In Theaters list. Instead of linking to the Now Playing blurbs, these jump right to the reviews. Not a big deal, but several of you missed it and didn’t like finding the reviews by way of the Now Playing page. I also hope it will help inspire me to be more prolific with writing full reviews instead of relying on smaller blurbs.
Also note the graphic for Cinema Fanatic’s Woody Allen Blogothon scheduled for Friday, May 20th in celebration of the opening of Midnight in Paris.
That’s all I’ve got this week. What about you? Seen anything good lately?
