Bunraku and Margaret should have been released years ago and it is a disgrace that not only have they been needlessly delayed but they are both only getting a limited release. They both have stellar casts (Bunraku – Josh Hartnett, Ron Perlman, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson) (Margaret – Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, Matthew Broderick, Allison Janney, Jean Reno) and shouldn’t go unnoticed by the public now that they have finally been released.

I am fed up with the gorgeous and talented Bryce Dallas Howard always playing villains now and being typecast after her roles in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Help and 50/50

Brad’s movie gets beat by a fish…..

Actually Brad’s movie beat the fish last week, and has still made more $$$ than the fish…but it’s still a cute movie.

@Moses Ashford:
Wow. Margaret does have an incredible cast. I hope it gets a wider release since it’s close to awards season.

Brad’s movie gets beat by a fish…..


Dolphin Tale opened in 3,515 theaters vs MB 2,993 theaters.

Btw, dolphin is a mammal not a fish, you idiot.

50/50 is the best movie of the year..i’m really shocked it wasn’t number 1!

Whoever wrote Dolphin Tale is an idiot! Dolphins are mammals, not fish!

Moneyball beaten again? Oh, the woes of an Oscarless actor…

Moneyball actually beat DT in its second week. See post #12.
