Weekend Box Office, New Reviews and New Staff Member

The box office was slightly healthier this week, but still a little disappointing, but then again, it's better and movies had some decent takes, so no one should be complaining too much. The sequel to 1998's pretty succesful teen thriller shlock, "Urban Legends: Final Cut" made a decent 8.8 million. Not spectacular, but not bad, considering the horrendous reviews and I think this was made for a low price, so I'm sure a profit will be reaped in.

The horror classic "The Exorcist", with new footage, brought in a really nice 8.5 million dollars, on a mere 664 screens. Coming in third was last week's big success, "Almost Famous", this time is went on quite a few more screens. The film made a good 7 million on 1,193 screens, and is slated to go wide next week. Dreamworks, once again, is doing its "American Beauty" strategy. As I said, I loved the film and I think everyone should check it out.

"Bring It On" and "The Watcher" were fourth and fifth with 4.2 and 3.6 million, respectively. "Bait" made 3.4 million, "Nurse Betty" racked up 3.3, "Space Cowboys" remained on the top 10 with 2.2 million, coming in an eight place tie with "What Lies Beneath", and the other new movie this weekend, "Woman On Top", made 1.9 million.

As far as the site goes, you may noticed a few more reviews up this weekend, which is always good. So if you haven't checked em out yet, be sure you do.

Finally, I have added a new member to the site. I want everyone to welcome Wayne A.. He did the excellent Gundam Wing review and wonderful Repo Man Special Edition review. Wayne is a freelance writer and has a BA in journalism. Be sure to check out his staff profile!

That's it for now. See you all real soon!
