100 Reviews!

Well, we did it. In a single month, this site has accumulated one hundred reviews. Not bad, not bad at all. Hits for us have grown each and every day, and 100 is a pretty strong milestone, so I think we're off to a great start and this site has a good future ahead. I would like to thank my staff and you, the visitors, for dropping by to support us. So, thank you! Even though some of the staff did slack this week, we were still be able to meet our goal. We just keep on growing. My next goal is to have 200 reviews by the end of this month, so hopefully we will meet that. I do have two new sections of the site I will be rolling out soon, so be prepared for that as well. Again, thank you all, and I have a feeling this site will be picking up a lot more people this month.

As far as other things go, the box office was pretty impressive this weekend. As we witnessed the past weeks, September is never a good time for the box office. But Jerry Bruckheimer's Remember The Titans got Denzel Washington his biggest box office and the 3rd biggest September opening (despite the fact Sunday was October) ever. It grossed a really nice 21.2 million. The screen average of over $11,000 dollars on 1,865 screens was nice too.

The Exorcist came in with a small drop, down to 7.4 million. Warner expanded it to 1,150 screens (from last week's 664) and they said that they will be expanding the film to another 500 in time for Friday the 13th.

Warner also had a pretty impressive performance with Christopher Guest's "Waiting For Guffman" follow-up Best In Show, grossing about 403,000 on a mere 13 screens. Warner will also be expanding that movie to about 300 during October.

As far as other new movies, the Sally Field directorial debut, Beautiful was panned by critics and by moviegoers to who showed no interested, it came in tenth place, a tie with Space Cowboys for 1.4 million. Ouch.

Almost Famous held a strong run by making 5.6 million this weekend, and Urban Legends: Final Cut (AKA Final Crap) went down to fourth with a pretty big drop to 4.7 million. Bring It On came in fifth with 2.9 million.

Well, that's it for today. Enjoy 100 reviews... more will just keep on rolling in... I hope.
