•Well, “The Words” didn’t end up taking first place like I wanted it to, but for an artsy movie, it did fairly well. It’s kind of hard to beat action-y movies and whatnot with a movie about a writer who steals another writer’s work. But what can you do? Overall, nothing much really changed all too much this week. As for next week, I’m very much excited! “The Master” and “Finding Nemo” are coming out, and I just can’t wait to see them both! “Nemo” will more than likely take the top spot next week, and seeing how “The Master” isn’t a movie that’s had much advertising, I feel like it’ll end up in either third or fourth place next week.

Miss! Worst Box Office Weekend in Four Years
•Since 2008, we have never seen such a low-grossing weekend at the box office. I am somewhat depressed, but what can you say? We just got out of an intense summer box office, and now we’ve reached a slump.

•Um, really? Really Venice Film Festival? You guys even admitted that this movie was one of the best to grace your stage and you only allow a movie to win two awards max? What kind of award show is that? I’m severely confused. If a movie is really good and deserves awards in directing and acting (among other things) why not give credit where credit is due? Sometimes, people just don’t make sense.
