    Agreed with the recommendations. As someone who really liked the XMen movies, if you were determined to add one more, make it Days of Future Past. But don't get crazy ideas in your head that any others are worth watching. Because they really aren't.
    I thought The Wolverine was good as well, although not as good as the others in the good group.

    IIRC, originally it was supposed to be directed by Darren Aronofsky but he became too busy with other projects. That could have really been a hell of a movie.

    I would say do it in this order:

    1) X-men
    2) X2
    3) First Class
    4) DOFP
    5) Logan

    You can and should watch the 2 Deadpool movies any time you want after seeing X-men (which introduced the whole concept to the cinema)

    Secret Life of Pets 2 fell nearly 50%, not awful but it needed to do much much better than that to have the legs to challenge Aladdin. It made $23.8 mil and hasn't even cracked the $100 mil mark yet ($92 mil). It is also likely toast in our contest. Aladdin, meanwhile, only fell 32% in weekend #4 and made $16.7 mil. It stands at $263 million and maybe has a chance of actually making it to $300 mil in total (I think it probably ends up about $10-15 mil short of that mark). Anyway, it is looking more and more like a lock. As stated earlier, if it is not in our top 5, Aladdin will be far and away the most successful film to ever fail to reach the top 5.

    JE - our contest is over. You should call it. The 5 will be Avengers, Alladin, Toy Story, Spider-Man and Lion King. Nothing else has a shot at catching these 5. Nothing will come within 100M if catching these 5. Itís ovah as they say up here.

    And look what we have here, an all Disney sweep!!! There seems to be a common theme with these contests...

    Iím starting to think Disney is going to take over ALL the good content. I canít wait for Disney + but I am very worried about what they will be charging for this service in 5 years.

    Yeah, I am largely inclined to agree... but there is more than a 0% chance that something can catch one of these (likely Aladdin). Furious 7 made $353 million... is it impossible to imagine that Hobbs and Shaw could come close to that figure?

    Over? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?


    Sad that I still quote a movie 40+ years later; kids today have no clue what I'm talking about. But they probably have no idea why Pearl Harbor is significant.

    it was over, they just didnít know it yet.

    Pretty funny that there is a strong likelihood that the Summer contest is over, before Summer even starts.

    So, I might as well chime in about the little film I saw last week that I was embargoed from talking about for the first few days.

    Toy Story 4 is a stunning achievement. If you feel like listening to me and my podcast buddy gush about it, here you go: https://soundcloud.com/jason-evans-1...ut-toy-story-4

    The courage it took to make this film is stunning... I mean, they had ended the series at #3 and had stuck the landing in a way that most franchises would kill to achieve. If they had messed this up, it would have been a disaster. It would have looked like a cash grab and could have turned audiences off from Pixar's entire brand. No one was demanding another Toy Story film. Why mess with a great thing and risk tainting it?

    But, they locked onto a compelling story with a real point to make and they came up with something truly magical. It is probably the funniest film in the entire Toy Story series but still has amazing characters and a ton of heart. It is remarkable how Pixar can make us care about a random toy after only spending a couple minutes with it on film. Forky, Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves is having a heck of a year!!), Bo Peep (always a side character but center stage in this film), Duck and Bunny (Key and Peele are a national treasure), and even the bad guy Gabby Gabby are fully formed characters who get an arc and a purpose. This is one of the better scripts we will see this year. I will be very disappointed if this flick does not garner multiple Academy Award nominations (beyond being the front runner for Best Animated Film).

    One thing that got me excited about this movie is that one of the writers is Rashida Jones. Lots of us know her from her acting on The Office and Parks & Rec. She's also the daughter of Quincy Jones.
    Why does her involvement excite me? I love seeing talented people prove that they are multifaceted. I have so much respect for someone who CREATES something, as opposed to someone who brings it to life. I have respect for those folks too, but doing both, I love that. People who ooze talent just make me smile.
    (Prime example, Justin Timberlake. Not into his music, but I have mad respect for the fact that he can write what he sings, play the instruments, and act in the movie that his song could be the theme for, all while dancing circles around the whole cast.)

    Saw TS4 early through a buddyís passes from his job and have to say I canít add more to what Jason said and wholeheartedly agree - it is an achievement in cinema. I was sure it was gonna be good but very cash grab-y. I was wrong, it was excellent. I have no shame saying that as a 42 year old dude commenting on a cartoon. Probably will finish #2 behind Lion King in our contest.

    Hedge your risk and just buy some DIS.

    (The stock. This is not a recommemdation to buy or sell a specific security. I'm not professionally trained nor licensed to buy or sell securities or provide investment advice. And given the SEC's new best interest rule, I'm certain that you are no better off after they've announced that 1400 page monstrosity. But I digress, this is about eating popcorn and having an enjoyable time at the air conditioned theater.)

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    Disney has announced plans to re-release Endgame. It will have some additional footage, all in the hopes of beating Avatar's domestic gross record.

    I read that earlier, and laughed. It seems like all the footage is post credits. So you have to sit through the three hour long movie to see a couple minutes of something "new", that if you are patient enough for, you can watch at home.
    Totally curious to see how well that works out. Maybe people will buy tix and show up 2 and a half hours into it.

    Avatar doesn't own the domestic gross record, The Force Awakens does.

    Avatar owns the worldwide box office record.

    Itís been a really bad summer for quality and I loved Endgame so Iíll go see it again and TS4 again to get the taste of these bad movies out of my mouth. AMC A-List makes it free and the choice an easy one. Yesterday is hovering around 60% on RT which is disappointing but Iíll still see it because of A-List.

    It is still going to make the top 5, for sure, but Toy Story 4's opening weekend of $118 million is a good $30 million less than expectations. I suspect this one will have strong legs because the reviews/buzz are so good.

    Who was better? Buzz, Woody, or Forky?

    Just saw TS4 and I have to say I wasn't blown away by it. Was it good? Yes but no way it was better than TS3. Maybe I had expectations that were too high but I thought it was average for Pixar and not in their top tier of films.
