FOCK YOU, AMERICA

The Coen brothers are genius auteurs who have made masterpieces for over 25 years, and their latest, True Grit, entertained audiences to the tune of $24.5 million this weekend. So naturally, because the majority of American movie-goers are mouth-breathing ass-tards, the film placed second to that monumentally stupid and artless piece of shit, Little Fockers. Honestly, I don’t even understand how any human being with a shred of dignity or taste can even say Little Fockers to a ticket collector without dying a little inside. Congratulations, morons.

Here are your top 3 films at the box-office for the weekend of Dec. 31 – Jan. 2

1.) Little Fockers – $26.3 million

2.) True Grit – $24.5 million

3.) Tron Legacy – $18.3 million

    Instead of focusing on the negative with this chart, focus on the positive. “True Grit” is the break out movie of the season. “Little Fockers” may be number one, but it lags far behind the last “Fockers” movie in attendance and is expected to fade fast thanks to poor reviews and word of mouth. New Year’s Eve weekend typically sees modest declines, and more often then not increases, for all films; it says something that “Fockers”, while number one, had the biggest decline of any movie this weekend. “True Grit”, meanwhile, is expected to play well over the next few weeks. And the fact that they were so close in attendance, with “Grit” nearly number one is, frankly, encouraging.
