Discs Are Rated
October 2nd, 2000
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
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
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.
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
Well, that's it for today. Enjoy 100 reviews... more will
just keep on rolling in... I hope.
