Box-Office Wrap-Up: Dec. 29 – Dec. 31

ON
Winner winner chicken dinner! The Oracle is back and rolling into the 07. Sure, I was crazy off on the top dollars, but I got the top dog and I’m feeling very frisky. Thanks Ben Stiller!
#1 movie predicted correctly: One Week In A Row
I should have known after that $13m Friday that I was doomed. Kids rule the universe.
Result: $37.8 million (My rank: #1, $13.7m off)
Let’s see, $5.9m is around 40 percent variance. Perhaps I should try music oracling.
Result: $19.3 million (My rank: #3, $5.9m off)
Listen. To the sound in my voice. Beyonce’s booty shelf life is tick tick tickin.
Result: $15.5 million (My rank: #2, $1.7m off)
I could really use some pizza. Big time. I could also use less kid’s movies in my life.
Result: $12.0 million (My rank: #6, $4.8m off)
Couldn’t they have updated the theme to some sort of rap remix featuring P-Diddy?
Result: $11.3 million (My rank: #4, $2.6m off)
At least I was consistently under on the dollars. That means my methodology is sound, though slightly flawed.
Result: $11.2 million (My rank: #5, $3.5m off)
So what are you doing for New Year’s? Hopefully not seeing a children’s movie.
Result: $8.4 million (My rank: #8, $2.3m off)
The neat thing about this prediction is I was exactly 100 percent off. That’s hard to do. I salute me.
Result: $8.0 million (My rank: #10, $4.0m off)
I am thinking about seeing Happy Feet but I don’t want to slog to the theater. Why haven’t you bastards sent me an Oscar screener?
Result: $7.8 million (My rank: #9, $3.3m off)
Where the hell did Black Christmas go? Lesson: Don’t release holiday themed horror.
Result: $6.7 million (My rank: Not Ranked)
