Box Office Results 1/10

Fancy meetin' you here! I mean, it's not particularly FANCY...there are no doilies or fine china or anything. Makes you wonder why that expression is usually said like a cowboy. Did cowboys really refer to things as "fancy?" Curious.

Anyhoodle, I am excited to get to these haikus because I heard a great haiku this weekend at a poetry slam about Malcolm X, Warren Buffet, and how Omaha must have some great sperm. Now I managed to get a discussion of cowboys saying "fancy" and sperm into the first post of the week. Tuesday is going to have a lot to live up to. Let's do the numbers (and the haikus).

1.) True Grit - $15 million (Accuracy of prediction - 93.5%)
Off into sunset,
this picture will also ride
with a lot of cash!

2.) Little Fockers - $13 million (Accuracy of prediction - 95.5%)
Fock this dumb movie.
With it's Focking one-note jokes.
And Fock Stiller too.

3.) Season of the Witch - $10 million (Accuracy of prediction - 90%)
Nic Cage may be weird
But at least he's interesting.
So that's something, right? 4.) Tron Legacy - $10 million (Accuracy of prediction - 90%)
Jeff Bridges kicks ass
Inside a video game,
And atop a horse!

5.) Black Swan - $8 million (Accuracy of prediction - 0%)
Why, Natalie, why?
Why ruin my predictions?
Oh, I can't stay mad.

Overall accuracy of prediction - 74%
A meager total
But if Natalie's happy,
then I am happy.

Okay, see you in a few for my daily news drop.Until then, follow me on Twitter or the Smurfs win.
