    Don't take this the wrong way, I don't know the real reason you made that comment about Robin Hood, but I knew instinctively that when Jamie Foxx was featured in the trailers as Little John, this film would not be well received by some. Re-envisioning classic tales don't go well with some people... its currently sitting at 12% rotten. I also heard allot of people groan, and make unsavory comments that made me cringe in the theater when this trailer was on screen. I rather watch films at home then have to deal with obnoxious people in the theater. Robin Hood was one of my favorite tales growing up, so Mr. Foxx as a Moorish Commander sounds intriguing to me. I might go out and see it.

    People in the past who have played Little John, Nick Brimble (Robin Hood : Prince of Thieves), Kevin Durand (Robin Hood 2010), Eric Allen Kramer (Robin Hood: Men in tights), Phil Harris (Robin Hood 1973), Alan Hale (The Adventures of Robin Hood 1938). Jamie is the first African. I'll support his efforts.

    This reminds me of when Martin Lawrence played Black Knight (2001) same reaction even though it was a comedy and of course TFA with Boyega. best of all Idris Elba as Heimdall.... Lucian Gabriel Wiina Msamati black pirate in Game of Thrones...

    On to the last weekend in November! We're about to hit a bit of a lull in the Box Office this weekend (1 new movie) and next (1 new movie, 1 re-release) before we get slapped with a bunch of holiday blockbusters... I have a bonus round in mind for the next 2 weeks, it's up to you guys if we do it or not. If you want to, I'll work out the scoring later. See below for details.

    Movies Opening November 30th:

    BONUS-
    The top 4 movies for the next 2 weeks is very likely going to stay the same, with maybe some minor shuffling:
    1. Ralph Breaks the Internet
    2. Creed II
    3. The Grinch
    4. Fantastic Beasts 2
    We can keep on guessing these films and their order to see what kind of legs they have if you're hooked on guessing and 1 (minor) movie isn't going to do it for you. We'll put it to a vote, majority rules!

    If you're in, please respond with a: +1 Bonus

    Ok, my last time out I wasn't really trying. This time I did spreadsheets, got out my pocket calculator, called my bookie and poured myself a double chocolate milk. Here's what I got for this weekend.

    The Possession of it gets really weird - 10m
    1. Ralph Breaks it all again - 28m
    2. The Grinch - 20m
    3. Creed 2 electric boog a loo - 17m
    4. Fantastic Beasts blah blah blah - 13m
