Andrew’s 10 Best Movies of 2011

2011 was a year full of sequels and remakes (most of which were dreadful, some of which were not), but there were some real gems thrown in the mix which meant it wasn’t a total loss. Here is a break down of my top 10 of the year, whittling them down to just 10 was not easy. Read the rest of this entry

US Box Office Top 10: 02-04/12

There were no new entries in the top 10 this week so it was up to last weeks highest new entry the Muppets to knock Twilight off the top spot however it couldn’t manage that so those vampires, werewolves and moaning girls managed to hang on to the top spot.

10 – Puss in Boots – $3.050.000 – $139.522.000

9 – Tower Heist – $4.100.000 – $70.800.000

3 – Hugo – $7.625.000 – $25.188.000

2 – The Muppets – $11.200.000 – $56.137.000

1 – Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 – $16.900.000 – $247.300.000

 

There are a lot of new entries out this week however i have picked 4 of them, two of the new entries have a small chance of getting in the top 10 and two movies which should give twilight a bit of a scare.

First off are the two which have little chance and they are thriller We Need to Talk About Kevin and the highly rated (from us) Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

out of the two that will make it into the top 10 the Sitter has the smallest chance of knocking Twilight off the top spot however it’s the huge cast of New Years Eve that i think should charm there way to the summit of the chart.
