Wolverine at the top of Box Office

You know what, I had my feelings about this movie, I really didn’t want to go see it and guess what, out of the 87 million that was made at the box office this weekend, none of it was mine. I don’t know why I didn’t want to go see it. I just didn’t want to waste my time. I hate to say it, but I guess I’ve become like a snob when it comes to movies, if it isn’t a good director, and I’m not saying that the guy who directed X-men Origins: Wolverine is not a good director, but this is only his second movie and in comparison to someone like Bryan Singer, I doubt he could make a good movie out of this. I was also a bit sketchy about how it all came to be put together. I felt like it was rushed into production, like they had a script together right before the strike last year and they pumped this one out. I may be completely wrong. Also, the trailer had some really bad special effects. I hate seeing movies that all they show is the action, honestly it reminds me of the WWE movies that have come out. All they put in the trailer is explosion after explosion. What’s the freaking plot!? Ohh that’s right, there isn’t any plot so you’re covering it up with action…

I’m done with my rant…sorry, I didn’t even see the movie. I’m sure I’d enjoy it, but I don’t want to waste my money on it. I feel really burnt by X-men: The Last Stand and I don’t want to be waste money on another one unless its made by a well known director.

Anyway, I’m going to try and post the Weekend Box Office whenever I can, so, from my Variety.com e-mail, here is the Box Office from this weekend:
