    the movie must be #1 with the ghosts because almost no tickets were left for the humans.

    It's like when rich people buy thousands of their own books to get on the best seller lists?

    yeah. the only people saying its a smash, is the media. Even Kristin Wiig cannot bring herself to promote the movie as good entertainment. Instead she has been promoting it as a mechanism for role models for young girls

    I really didn't care about this movie one way or the other. I certainly wasn't fired up because they used chicks...as if the original Ghostbusters were the fucking Quran or something tjat god forbid you change. To me, the original Ghostbusters, much like the Quran, sucked and bored me. :wigtip:

    originally that wasn't Luke's hand that was sliced off during the duel with Vader.

    might actually be that. the media has a vested interest in not being especially accurate, plus the entertainment industry has their own special way of doing accounting that has been blessed by the IRS so when i see any studio cite big numbers i divide by 1000 although maybe 10000 is more appropriate now.
