I'm guessing Into the Wild is just in limited release? It's not playing anywhere around here, and I see it didn't even make it into the Top 10. Too bad, I was hoping I'd be able to see it (as much as I hate the idea of contributing money to the pocket of Sean Penn).
I feel that a big problem with today's society is that we don't listen to our fellow man -- especially when I'm talking.

Not surprised, but I must say Extinction should have been A LOT better than it was. The final fight was just not epic enough like the one against Nemesis in the second movie. Of course, the ending pissed me off the most, for they said they were going to end the story of Alice with Extinction, not milk it for another movie. I just do not understand why they could not have made the movie a good 45 minutes longer and finish what they were supposed to finish.
I liked Extinction it wasnt super great but I was entertained.

Across the Universe isn't playing in my area. That was really the only movie I was going to see this fall.
Maybe I'll check out 3:10. I like the premise.
agreed with fugate. if my theatre had "across the universe" i would've diffenently seen that. heck, i would have even settled for "good luck chuck" for a laugh or two, but nope. it's not there, either. stupid small towns and showing movies that are over half a year old now such as "license to wed"

...I mean we weren't supposed to get Sunshine and we got that for a week last week.
Well ,the only movie i want to see that's still out sans Superbad which i won't be able to get into is The King of Kong, but i hafta get a ride out to Mass to see it
Oh no, The Game Plan's only two competitors are rated R, guaranteeing it a clean sweep. And that means a sequel already!

THIS WEEK: When you think about it, TV shows with cult fanbases have actually returned more times than they haven't. The results have been mixed, but it's a thing, and it totally happens! Join us as we examine many recent examples in..."YOU CAME BACK!"
Got this from Kotaku and couldn't agree more:
No matter what your personal feelings are about the Resident Evil franchise, it is nice to see a movie based on a video game come in tops at the box office over the weekend. Resident Evil: Extinction took in $24 million this weekend, beating it's nearest competitor, Good Luck, Chuck by a clean $10 million. This almost makes it the best weekend pull of all three RE movies, beating Apocalypse's $23 million despite selling less tickets, a testament to ticket prices pushing past ridiculous into 'no f***ing way' territory. You win this time, Milla Jonovich, but don't think this makes up for Ultraviolet.

At least 15 percent of the moviegoing audience experiences headache and eyestrain during 3-D movies. I'm one of them. And no, I don't need corrective eyewear.
Go watch Resident Evil Extinction. Close your eyes whenever there's a discussion between Jovovich and Ali Larter and tell me you can differentiate between the two voices.
Anybody notice the startling number of movies with titles similar to recent popular movies? Sunshine/Eternal Sunshine, Shaun of the Sheep/Shaun of the Dead, King of Kong/King Kong? It's like we're in Bizarro World.
Worst case scenario was 2002's Spirit/Spirited Away/Swept Away scenario. It was hard to discuss my favorite movie without people thinking I was talking about some horse flick or Madonna crap.
