The tide is turning.
Dunkirk will prevail.

Some of the members here were so frustrated when Big Hero 6 won the opening weekend over Interstellar, but at the end of the day Interstellar outperformed Big Hero 6 on its global gross. It did better than a 3D family film from Marvel and Disney with a much better tomatometer and cinemascore and half its runtime, and people here just wasted their times, being upset over nothing.£
Even as a dragons fanboy... I agree.Master Virgo wrote:Song of the Sea and Kaguya were more deserving than both anyway. But yes Dragon was considerably better than Big Hero, no doubt.£
You don't have to single out parents or children and insult them, but you can certainly criticize the mindless mentality of seeing an absolutely abysmal movie, You know, you can always rent one of the myriad of critically acclaimed aninated movies or watch one on Netflix? Some of it can also be blamed on the parents in regards to how their kids are raised. If kids over 7 are seeing The Emoji Movie that's ridiculous. Stop blowing things out of proportion like it's the complaining on this forum is an abhorrent assault on all women and children.Vader182 wrote:Yes, and regardless animated movies primarily excite younger kids with colors and cool sounds. All of you are attacking parents for bringing their kids to see the only kids movie out right now. I get really uncomfortable with this weird kind of tribalist mentality thing, especially for stuff as trivial as entertainment that you'd start "attacking" the "opposition." It says a lot more about you and your maturity to regress to these kinds of commends than it does the parents and little kids going to see the Emoji Movie.Master Virgo wrote:Also B for an animated movie is absolutely terrible. B+ is usually the worst a mainstream animated film might get on cinemascore and even that happens rarely.£
All the more troubling, is that the big news is Dunkirk is doing incredibly well. 100m+ domestic is almost certain, and it will hit 200m+ by the end of the weekend. It's going to be more front-loaded than Interstellar because it's summer, but this is a real achievement not just for the genre but for being such a weird, atypical movie.
But no. Let's criticize parents and children some more!
