    Wow, a genuinely good film topping the box office. And during Halloween weekend. Hopefully they’ll realise that they should stop making crappy horror sequels.

    I was told that Cloud Atlas was not good and that the acting was so bad, could it be Ms Berry.

    @Leenah: Then Jim Sturgess shouldn’t be in a movie with Halle Berry…she is box office poison.

    Halle Berry’s movie Frankie and Alice only made $10,670 in theaters and Dark Tide made $432, 274 (international and domestic) in theaters. Now Cloud Atlas only made about $9 million. It’s not a coincidence. Berry cannot act and no one wants to see her in movies anymore…if so, the two films previously mentioned would have made more money and they would have been nominated for awards. It’s simple math, Berry’s career is over…sorry!

    I liked Argo, but Ben should not have a cast himself in the lead role. He’s such a wooden actor.
