    @thedude-abides -- Figured you'd say that.

    @superman81 I could see IM3 beating Gatsby by less than 10 million with IM3 making less than 65 million dollars. And that would be a massive drop. Close to 65 percent.

    @thedude1 Gatsby was only off by like 300 thousand Friday. Hard to see Iron Man beating it by 17 million. Whats more of a shocker is the huge drop Iron Man will have.

    @ Why are you trying to ruin the movie for anyone who hasn't seen it ?

    Gatsby is doing a lot better than anyone thought. Now estimated to make over 50 million dollars. Iron Man 3 holds on with an estimated of 67 million.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Depends on the movie, I suppose; but it would have to be really bad for me to turn down a free screening, regardless of the format.

    @thedude-abides -- They do greatly enhance the experience, though. Not even if you got in for free?

    SPOILER: In 42, Jackie Robinson makes it to the majors!! Wow. I bet you didn't see that coming...

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Both, but they kinda go hand-in-hand. I'm not gonna pay extra to see a movie when I can pay less to see the same exact movie, which I think is the whole point of 3D and IMAX.

    @thedude-abides -- Ah, all right. Is it a price thing, or is it that you're just not a fan of either?

    I think Gatsby will get close to $50 mil.

    I think IM3 will make closer to 70 million. Gatsby making a little over 40 million. Either way though Star Trek comes out Wednesday and I can't wait!!

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I refuse to watch 3D or IMAX. Just plain film will do for me :)

    @thedude-abides -- Yeah, I was referring to "The Great Gatsby". We'll see, man. Which version are you watching?

    2 years agoby @XxNickTheFilmCriticXxFlag

  18. thedude-abides

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I definitely will if it's concerning Gatsby. Again, I see it garnering no less than a 2.5 outta 4 from me.

    @ghostman Yeah, I just looked it up prior to reading your comment.

    @thedude-abides Right now, it is at 47%. Reviews seem to be mixed, but leaning towards negative.

    I will be seeing Iron Man 3 again for the 2nd time need to see it again to fully grasp everything. Cause I am a fan of Robert Downey.

    @fanboy Also that ending... ugh it was such a rushed and piss poor ending..

    @EmmyttWolfe Same here, maybe a rewatch will help me decide. But with the forced stupid humor, the kid, the dumb news guy, and the twist, its just hard for me to really like it.
