I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THIS WEEKEND'S BOX-OFFICE: 10/04/2013

October kicks off with this weekend with Warner Bros.' Gravity a movie I wouldn't mind seeing in an IMAX theater care to join me?

PROS:


- Critical response has been glowing in the weeks since the film's festival debuts.
- Sandra Bullock has developed a strong ability to draw mainstream audiences over the last few years thanks to The Blind Side, The Proposal, and The Heat. George Clooney brings an added bonus himself with his consistent fan base.
- Director Alfonso Cuarón boasts his own fan following.
- Comparisons to 2001: A Space Odyssey will surely bring out film enthusiasts.
- Twitter and Flixster activity levels are very encouraging.
- Early Oscar buzz is already heating up for the film.

CONS:

- Will critical and fanboy buzz translate into average moviegoer interest?
- Cuarón has been off the grid for quite some time, last helming 2006's acclaimed--but financially disappointing--Children of Men.

- October hasn't been known for blockbuster runs--could Gravity change that?
