    By the time Man of Steel comes, Purge would have made a modest profit

    The Purge was a pretty good movie. To me, The Internship was a disappointment. I just didn't laugh that much at all.

    The purge better enjoy this because Man of Steel is going to punch it out of number one this upcoming weekend.

    Wow After Earth is doing about as good as Snooki at a spelling bee.

    The Purge was a great film. Not perfect, but better than I thought. Glad to see it at the top.

    Glad to see the Google advertisement movie flopped even though it was funny. Don't know what it is about these horror films that come out of nowhere a few times a year and dominate the competition but I like it. Hoping The Purge is actually good when I see it later this week.

    That's a pretty big opening for The Purge.

    Glad After Earth is doing terrible.

    No surprise there considering that 88 people went to see it while I was watching the movie. Still, the movie is a massive disappointment.
