Apparently Some Garbage is Critic Proof

You know how there is always that guy in high school who was a cocky douchebag that you hated, but he somehow still dated the most attractive girl in school? That’s like Michael Bay in the movie world. He produces an awful piece of indulgent garbage and he cleans up. And the geeks can just shake their heads and wonder why.

The Hurt Locker opened in 4 theatres and averaged $36,000 per theatres which is an impressive number. The Hangover and Up hang on for decent earnings several weeks into their opening.

Here are the Box Office estimates from Box Office Mojo:

Next week a true show down will occur when the second week of Transformers 2 goes up against the first week of Public Enemies. My guess is the Transformers reign will end as word of mouth gets out that it’s a piece of crap. Who do you think will win?
