I hardly ever go in Best Buy anymore either.
This article gives some props to First Class, but seems split on the other comic book entries and blockbusters this summer. Actually, this summer did seem a bit of a wash out I suppose. All the big things that made money Pirates 3, Potter end, Thor, weren't highly acclaimed. I don't remember all their numbers but outside of Potter, it looks like nobody did well this year. And I feel bad for the films that had the misfortune to get released with Irene!
Well at least awards and festivals and the meaty stuff will be coming up soon.
