Box Office Results for the weekend of January 14

There was a glitch in my HTML coding, which sounds like a nerdy way of saying I had diarrhea or something. But what really happened is that I forgot to slash or unslash inside a carrot and for some reason it ate all of my numbers associated with my predictions on Friday. Not that anybody NOTICED OR TOLD ME OR ANYTHING! Jeez, it's like a guy whose zipper was so unzipped you could see all of Florida and the Florida Keys and nobody said anything. Thanks. Well, it's fixed now, and as you can see (or will see) no cheating occurred, as The King's Speech began what could be a month-plus-long repeated boning of yours truly. Not only is it outperforming what I thought box office-wise, but there's a good chance it will get awards it doesn't deserve. I fully expect this testament to mediocrity to be a pea beneath my mattress for some time to come. In other news, The Green Hornet is a quasi-hit, True Grit and Black Swan are mega-hits, and Little Fockers is already a bad memory that Robert DeNiro is making jokes about. Let's see how the weekend panned out, haiku style!

1.) The Green Hornet - $40 million (Accuracy of prediction - 94%)
It's a little sting,
but it's a sting none-the-less
Chin up, Seth Rogen.

2.) The Dilemma - $17 million (Accuracy of Prediction - 97%)
Underperforming
At least both of the lead guys
are quite used to that.

3.) True Grit - $11 million (Accuracy of prediction - 95.5%)
This is impressive!
Word of mouth is just so strong.
Now, more Westerns please?

4.) The King's Speech - $9 million (Accuracy of prediction - 0%)
Surprising result
given how bland this one is.
More like The King's Meh

5.) Black Swan - $8 million (Accuracy of prediction - 100%)
I can't believe this.
Lesbian ballerinas?!
That's box office gold.

Overall accuracy of prediction - 77%
Not my finest hour
But the Chicago Bears won!
So I do not care.
