The Misix Movie Quality Index (59.84) remained largely unchanged from last week’s mediocre performance (-0.04) despite three of the top four movies performing well. Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol (79.75), Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (60.73) and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (77.83) continued strong performances, but the top movie, The Devil Inside (30.34), almost ended up being this week’s anchor. This week’s anchor, yet again, is latest edition to the Chipmunk franchise, Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (27.63). War Horse (75.41), We Bought a Zoo (63.83) and The Adventures of Tintin (72.25) all continue to perform well. A new edition to the top 10, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (80.53), had the highest rating for the weekend. The index was bookended by poor movies, The Devil Inside at the top spot and the star-studded romantic comedy New Year’s Eve (30.12) – Sarah Jessica Parker included – at number 10. The revenue adjusted index (56.35) dropped (-7.58) as a result of The Devil Inside performing less than admirably in the top spot. The overall movie index was once again below the average rating (61.85) indicating that, as a group, this weekend’s top ten were weak. However, there are some strong movies out that would be solid choices.
