HAPPY HANNUKAH!

December 21st, 2000

Mononoke Arrives, New Reviews, "What Women Want", 150 Reviews!

Yes, after all the delays, the madness, the anxiety of it all, Princess Mononke is on DVD at last! Be sure to read my review, it's my most anticipated disc this year. And if you have been following the site, you know my obsession about this release. It's well worth it, so check out the review!

That's not all, there are three other new reviews to check out as well. Small Time Crooks by me, Perfect Blue by Ron and Dead Kennedys by James (stay away from the disc!). All are great reads, so check those out if you can. These reviews mean that we've crossed the 150 mark! Woohoo! Only another 50 to go until 200... not bad at all. Another landmark...

The weekend box office was quite healthy, and The Grinch got knocked to number three with 13 million. In first, a new December record was set with What Women Want... which is what women wanted. It made 34.4 million, a great opening and a great number. In second was Dude Where's My Car? which wasn't screened to critics but made 14 million in second. Disney's latest animated and reworked film, The Emperor's New Groove, scored a decent but not too spectacular 10 million at the box office in fourth. Keep in mind that most sales were for kids tickets.

Rounding the box office was Vertical Limit in fifth with 9 million, Proof Of Life went down to 5.2 million (I heard it cost 80 million to make) and Dungeons and Dragons took ninth with a dismal 2.2 million. What a bomb.

And that's about it... today Golden Globe nods were announced, a few surprises, next update I'll get into that more. I want to see if some staff can post their thoughts too... oh yes a Happy Hannukah to everyone (I'm Jewish, so I gotta get that menorah out of the closet).

Happy Holidays everyone, and the madness is almost over...
