I'll bet Roger Ebert wishes he could get away with that same critique. Brilliant.

Original Wicker Man director is "flaming furious" over Hollywood remake.
  • According to the story, The Wicker Man remake includes a swarm of killer bees. And I don't know about some of the other changes, either. Some people question whether the Wicker Man should have even one pantomime horse.
  • I have to think that "flaming" may carry a different connotation in Scottish slang. To me, the only flaming furious I can picture is Richard Simmons sending back some cold food.

Not a bad choice, but I can think of quite a few others as deserving.

 

Coming off a 4-12 season, the Dolphins may not be as good as they looked, but they sure have the Broncos' number. Denver has never won a game in Miami. Never. Ever.

The Exorcism spins some heads. What can ya say? People want scares and raunchy laughs. It has often been cited that escapist fare does better in tragic times. I don't know whether that axiom would hold true if one approached it analytically, but it seems to be in effect at the moment. Emily Rose got only 42% positive reviews, but it met today's demand.
  • The Exorcism took in $30 million, about $12 million more than anticipated by The Warrior. That $12 million was monumental, because very little of it was cannibalization from other films - maybe a couple of million. The total box office was $10 million (16%) above the same weekend last year.
  • The Exorcism was made with a $19 million production budget, so it looks to be a cash bonanza for Screen Gems
  • The other tale of moderate success was spun by the two raunchy comedies. Each managed to pass a film which bested it last week. (Wedding Crashers passed Four Brothers, while The Virgin managed to hold the #2 slot by passing Transporter 2.)
  • Last week's champ, Transporter 2, didn't show much durability, dropping 56%
  • The other major new release, "The Man," bombed even worse than expected, limping in a poor sixth despite being on 2000 screens, and finishing with only 16% positive reviews.
  • The film with Redford, Freeman, and J-Lo did well in terms of per-screen average, but it was in only 139 theaters, and received only 42% positive reviews, so it's not looking like a big one.
  • The Wedding Crashers officially passed $200 million.
