Notfabio posted MTC and no one comments?

So without manipulation, or monetary predictions, or gutcheck, please share some insight.

Like:

Trouble with Curve: I dont think Eastwood's silliness at RNC will detract moviegoers

House: Good test of Lawrence as a draw.

Dredd: Solid reviews but just looks so bleh, dreary.

Watch: uninspired looking film wont do Jake G any favors

Master: doesnt look mainstream at all, but can arthouse buzz propel it? some, yes, think it can outperfrom mtc's #

I think Curve will be the highest of the 5; looks decent plus for picky viewers CEAST has recent history of solid movies   daveart on Sep 19, 12:30

If anything, I think CEAST being on the spotlight would be good for the movie... {nm}   slappydavid on Sep 19, 12:32

Here's my Box office analysis   tatoufan on Sep 19, 12:55

MASTR and ENDWT have little audience overlap. The hispanic market is grealt underestimated. And what bad of mouth? It's gotten good reviews. {nm}   Antibody on Sep 19, 13:01

I wasn't underestimating the Hispanic market, I just don't think it will fly. JMO {nm}   tatoufan on Sep 19, 13:07

Everyone underestimates the Hispanic market. {nm}   Roger More on Sep 19, 13:46

Que?   Catzan on Sep 19, 13:54

It's a glib comment, but don't you find that movies popular with Hispanics are underestimated on HSX?   Roger More on Sep 19, 14:15

Yes. Similar to how HSX traders underestimated many african-american targetted films.   Catzan on Sep 19, 15:38

I see "The Master" more like "There Will Be Blood" which mainstream audiences went to over a long time or not at all.    Catzan on Sep 19, 13:41

I see Curve winning the wkd, house doing slightly under estimates, dredd & watch doing high single digits, master 6+ {nm}   HSXMetrics.com on Sep 19, 13:27

I got House winning mid high teens, then Curve mid to low teens, then Watch and Dredd with high single digits grosses   thatpj on Sep 19, 13:43

Clint is in his wheelhouse as a grouchy old coot. Audiences will come out for that. ENDST looks like generic horror, so I don't expect a   Roger More on Sep 19, 14:00
