Until now, ‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2’ had the biggest opening weekend ever when it made $169M, and though the numbers won’t be official until later today, ‘The Avengers’ reportedly made $205 million in it’s opening weekend, more than double the old record (or maybe not “double”. I’m not great with numbers.)

It’s now made almost $650 million worldwide, meaning a lot of high-priced call girls are gonna get punched out in celebration by coked-up executives over at Disney this week. Watch out ladies!

    So, super hero nerds are better than fairy tale nerds? Is that what I am to suppose from this?

    If a movie ticket costs, on average, $15 then roughly 13.4 million people paid to see this movie last weekend. That is a lot of fucking nerds.

    I saw it.

    P epper and I had an awkward moment when our hands touched in the popcorn bucket, but other than that, I had a nice time.

    I saw it and loved it. As far as summer movies go, this has it all. Definitely the best book adaptation to date (including novels, not just comics).

    I really don’t see any other movie this summer (Batman included) coming close to the pure awesomeness that was The Avengers. I read comics when I was a kid, but that’s a good 15 years ago, now. This movie was just incredible. It definitely had laughs and was overflowing with action.

    I think the best part is that the characters didn’t mush one another. Each of the main characters (there were like 7 or 9?) had equal screen time, and they had their own importance to the plot. It was done really well.

    I saw it. I enjoyed it. In fact, I enjoyed it much than the wahlberg post.

    What do you know…..a good director writes a good script, hires good actors, has great effects and treats the audience with a little respect (and manages to keep his political idiocy out of the film) and you get the biggest movie ever!

    Somehow I doubt Hollywood is going to get the message.

    Imean Shaheed was working last Sunday when federal agents rushed into the Patapsco Flea Market, announced over the loudspeaker that the bazaar was closed for business and shut down vendors selling Cheap Louis Vuitton Handbags and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.”It was like the movies,” the 20-year-old Shaheed said Saturday after the Cherry Hill flea market re-opened. Some booths were empty, but the parking lot was full and customers flocked to vendors such as Shaheed who were open for business via Louis Vuitton Outlet Store.
