  Did It Bomb? Weekend of 7/27/07
Posted by: Katy on Jul 31st, 2007 Leave a Comment »

Hey there! The weekend has come and gone with brand new flicks. As always, there were some that banked, and some that tanked.

Now, since I love making calls about whether a movie is going to do well, you can imagine how excited I am to bring you the newest edition of DIB?! Did I manage to pull off another set of predictions? Check them out!!!

I Know Who Killed Me:
Will It Bomb?:
Lindsay Lohan’s subsequent arrest, horrific publicity, and cancelled appearances pretty much guaranteed a bomb.
Did It Bomb?: Basically, as predicted, it did. No one was really surprised, you know. It ended up at the #9 spot, with $3.51 mill.
***Box office tally and position according to IMDB.com***
Outcome: Score! 1 out of 4

No Reservations:
Will It Bomb?:
Romantic and cute movie, but up against so many blockbusters. Mid-to-bottom of the 10.
Did It Bomb?: Hey, it did fairly well! #5 position with a take of $11.7 million.
***Box office tally and position according to IMDB.com***
Outcome: Score! 2 out of 4

The Simpsons Movie:
Will It Bomb?:
With the show’s longevity and the fans waiting all this time for a flick? I don’t think so! Top or second spot.
Did It Bomb?: Nope! #1 spot, kids! All right!! $74 million earned! Whoo-hoo!
***Box office tally and position according to IMDB.com***
Outcome: Score! 3 out of 4

Who’s Your Caddy:
Will It Bomb?:
Dopey plot that’s a rip off of Caddyshack. It would make some money. Probably end up at the Bottom of the 10, if at all.
Did It Bomb?: Ended up in the very, very bottom, with an earning of $2.76 million and a #10 standing.
***Box office tally and position according to IMDB.com***
Outcome: Score! 4 out of 4

How about that! Every one came out as I thought! That’s going to be it for now! Don’t forget! Later this week, I bring out the newest crop for this upcoming weekend over at WIB?! DIB? returns early next week! I’m so stoked! See ya!




  Saw V

No, I didn’t miss a Roman numeral. News from Comic Con suggests David Hackl, production designer and assistant director on Saw III and Saw IV will direct the as-yet-unannounced Saw V. I’m still excited that they made Saw IV, which doesn’t even come out until October. I’m thrilled that they’re making Saw V, turning this into the great horror series I had hoped for.

As I said almost two years ago, “I’d kinda like this to become the great horror series of my generation. While the generation before had Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street, my generation can have the Saw series. ”

We’ll update you with a release date for Saw V the second we hear about it.

  The Best Child Star Ever
Posted by: Christine on Jul 31st, 2007 1 Comment »

Gertie and ETI was asked recently who my favorite child star is. It’s a difficult question to answer. Right now I’m really into Shia LaBeouf and Hayden Panetierre. But at 21 and 17 respectively, neither can be considered a child actor anymore. Dakota Fanning annoys me, as does her little sister. The Harry Potter kids are all grown up. Who’s left?

The mother of all child stars, of course – Drew Barrymore. She’s the one that started it all. As little Gertie in E.T., Drew stole the show. The scene when she first meets ET and they both scream is iconic. (I can say this because I have a postcard hanging above my desk with that scene on it.) There was nothing cuter than Drew Barrymore in the 80s, even when she was lighting things on fire in the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s Firestarter. And then things went downhill. If you’ve read Drew’s autobiography, you’ll know she had a drug and alcohol problem and landed herself in rehab at the young age of 13. Unlike today’s drama queens, Drew actually cleaned up after rehab and – shock of all shocks – continued on to have a successful career. She’s known for being the rom-com go-to girl, starring in flicks like Happily Ever After and The Wedding Singer. She is the epitome of an excellent child star. She had her cute stage, her rehab stage, and her successful real actress stage.

She’s the youngest person to ever host Saturday Night Live and Steven Spielberg is her godfather. How much cooler can you get?

  Correction: Kevin Smith, a Hero?
Posted by: Christine on Jul 30th, 2007 Leave a Comment »

Earlier this week we had posted about the news from Comic-Con that Kevin Smith would be doing an episode of Heroes. This is incorrect. Smith will actually be directing an episode of Heroes: Origins, the much-anticipated spin-off series.
