The Gross Movie Pool: Fall

2013 Holiday Movie Pool - Final Report

We've reached the time when call our actual Top Five of the 2013 Holiday Movie Pool! We've had kid flicks, action movies, dramas, indy films, comedies, alleged comedies, and comedies only the Golden Globes call comedies. Some did great, some did well, and some you wouldn't even touch in the $5 Walmart bargain bin. Let's take a look back at what came out this season and sort out where each film fell. Like Bruce Springsteen once sang, "It's a town full of losers and five pulled it out to win," or something like that.

Frozen Freezes The Holidaze - Weeks 9 & 10

Five new films came out on Christmas Day and they all ended up with snowballs in their stockings. Instead of a White Christmas is was a Red Christmas for studios as people flocked to theaters to mostly see the same old films. You mean, folks would rather listen to musicals and visit Middle Earth than see Keanu Reeves as a long lost samurai? Whoa.

Anchorman Is Only Kind of A Big Deal; American Hustles; Banks Needs Saving - Week 8

In the movie Babe when Ferdinand the Duck screams out "Christmas means carnage... Christmas means carnage!" it's pretty clear he's talking about the onslaught of films released within the small window around Christmas Day. We had four wide releases this weekend and five more set for Wednesday. While a lot of folks flock to the theater, they're not seeing all nine films. It's a theatrical blood bath where few win and the others will be left as a bloody pulp in the bargain DVD bin. Christmas means carnage.

The Hobbit Desolates Madea - Week 7

When Tolkienites get together to sing Elvish songs or blow smoke rings with their pipe-weed, it's usually to honor the celebrated literary trilogy The Lord of The Rings. The Hobbit is generally thought of a footnote or the spinach artichoke dip before the main feast. Given the fact that more Tolkienites would rather see a new LoTR movie about Tom Bombadil (a bizarre character from The Fellowship of the Ring that was left out of the movie version who's like the big, goofy Ghost of Christmas Present in A Christmas Carol) than three movies about Bilbo Baggins, Warner Bros. should be thrilled with how well The Hobbit films are doing. It's not Lord of the Rings numbers, but it's no AfterMASH either.

Frozen Sets Fire To Thor's Reign - Week 6

With only one new hors d'oeuvre offered the week, theatergoers ate up the leftovers and scarfed down second helpings of their favorite Thanksgiving goodies. While some may think Christian Bale should take it personally that people rejected his violent action drama Out of the Furnace the first days of December, the same peeps put up a No Soliciting sign for Brad Pitt's similarly-veined Killing Them Softly in the very same weekend last year and just never took it down.

Catching Fire Catches Fire; Frozen Thaws Thanksgiving Record - Weeks 4 & 5

The Hunger Games rolled doubles three times in a row and still didn't have to go to jail as Catching Fire set a November opening record (which basically means it beat three Twilight films) with a $158.1 million debut. Though only a minor bump up from the $152 million start for The Hunger Games in March of 2012, this clearly cements the series as one for the long haul and Lionsgate accountants are counting the days until they can count all the money from Mockingjay Parts One and Two. It almost goes without saying that this was also Lenny Kravitz's biggest opening since Are You Gonna Go My Way.

Best Man Tugs On Thor's Cape - Week 3

Week 3 of the 2013 Holiday Movie Pool is the one week this season Hollywood forgot to plan. Most of the time, the fourth weekend of November is Thanksgiving Weekend. School is out, the stores are packed, relatives show-up with celery in Jell-O molds, and people just want to get away for a couple hours in a movie theater after they've woken up from turkey induced comas.
