?? It will OVERperform.

Posted by: Krubino (a.k.a Mystified) on Sep 27, 23:57 in response to Pr0n's post SOCIL will underperform

The logic behind your statement is truly perplexing.  Not only is porn something that most people cannot see in movie theaters, it is not something that truly draws in generations.   I don't know you personally, but many people of the young adult era will be seeing this movie just because of the fact that it's facebook.

 

Facebook is a universal thing.   People go on it all the time and comment on other people's things.   People enjoy facebook.   People are intrigued about the movie.   Some are like, "Bah, this movie is stupid.  Who wants to see a movie about facebook?" and will see it FOR THAT reason just to see it.   Money will be spent on this movie.  

 

Pornography on the other hands is XXX rated, and people won't go to watch porn when they can watch it online for free on flash sites.  Your logic is very flawed.   Unless you were trying to make a joke...  then if that's the case that's also a fail.   

Social Network:

1.  Has a much better known director

2.  Has better-known actors starring in it

3.   Premise is universal (facebook)

4.  Marketing was sensational and the Zuckerberg controversey ensured even more publicity.

 

It will overperform.

Why are RS's numbers reported as ranges and not whole numbers?    Arcsol on Sep 27, 10:17

It's only within the last month or two that they've started being reported here as ranges. Before that is was always a single number.   shadowking on Sep 27, 12:52

Rottentomatoes currently 100% for SOCIAL: 6 more for perfect rare certified fresh   Krubino on Sep 28, 12:59

ARMOND WHITE ENTERS WITH NEGATIVE REVIEW: NOW GO SEE IT!   Krubino on Sep 29, 17:35

If it does OVERperform, it will not be due to those reasons.   darknightz on Sep 28, 16:10

I suppose all I can say is we'll see.   Krubino on Sep 28, 16:17

Look at numbers, spoof movies don't bomb   Lucky856 on Sep 28, 17:29

Lots of them bomb, they all bomb with critics, and Social Network is NOT a spoof movie.   Krubino on Sep 28, 18:04

Doesn't matter how good the movie is, just how much money it makes   Lucky856 on Sep 28, 20:40

Yeah, that's pretty much all I can say too haha.   darknightz on Sep 28, 20:41

I appreciate the nice responses.   Krubino on Sep 28, 21:36

Yup, it gets pretty rough on some online forums; people act all tough and mean but I think HSX keeps it pretty cool. Most of the time haha {nm}   darknightz on Sep 28, 21:52

No reason to act like an idiot   Lucky856 on Sep 29, 11:11

^^Krubino's behaviour in this thread was kinda uncalled for and stupid though {nm}   DomoI on Oct 03, 08:04

Yeah, but then again judging by this weekend, he's not the smartest kid around....   Lucky856 on Oct 03, 13:08

Look who was wrong.   DomoI on Oct 03, 08:11
