It looks like 2020 is going to be a huge disaster for Hollywood. I don't think we are going out to the movies again until maybe March (A Quiet Place 2) and then not again until July (Free Guy & Ghostbusters).

Where last year we ended up going to the movies almost every weekend, this year it looks like we may only head out about 5 times total in the whole year.

I'm probably going to skip Black Widow & Wonder Woman. The Marvel movies have been on a huge decline and the first Wonder Woman wasn't that great.

I think you are looking at something like a 30%-40% drop in revenue compared to 2019. I've seen a lot of articles over the years talking about how one bad year will close down a lot of smaller studios and 2020 looks like that year. Expect to see Disney/Marvel make some big changes in their executive lineup after 2020 bombs out.

This is going to be a hard year for Hollywood to top. We're going to see a lot of articles about how many fewer $ 2020 is bringing in vs. 2019 and the death of Hollywood, etc.

But the fact is 2019 was a banner year with so many amazingly high performing movies it isn't going to be fair to compare.

Yea, without a Star Wars film this year and with two really average quality Marvel films, there isn't going to be those big $1 Billion movies to prop up the total revenues for the year.

I actually saw this in 3D at the theatres. That is like a first in probably a decade. Thought it was ok, but had some seriously rushed parts and some seriously boring parts.

All and all, still (imo) better than the Phantom Menace prequels with the "I care for you too quigon shit"

However, when the Emperor said shit about "Unnatural abilities" bla bla bla.. my mind went back the the M&Ms commercials.

The Grudge was alright. The main problem with it was there was no *wow* moment(s). Had great "creatures," good acting, a good tone and story, but nothing too memorable. Consistently felt like a Silent Hill game in a lot of ways, which was cool. But overall, just alright. Like 2.5/5 alright, and that's coming from a huge horror fan. So you can probably skip it if you're not one.
