August 10, 2012 to August 12, 2012

With three new movies added to the list of top ten, the Misix Movie Quality Index gained 1.22 points this past weekend to 62.15. Continuing the endless trend of remakes and sequels, The Bourne Legacy (63.32) overtook The Dark Knight Rises (83.74) at the top spot in sales which fell to third overall. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis surprisingly led The Campaign (59.90) to the number two spot suggesting that there may yet be something humorous in the world of politics, albeit a fictional one. For those in the older crowd, Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep led the way at number four with the debut of Hope Springs (68.91) which was followed by Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (55.56). This week’s newly awarded anchor of the week Total Recall (47.23) received stiff competition from the political-uprising-through-interpretive-dance nightmare of Step Up Revolution (48.97). Maybe next time they’ll mix dancing and puppies? Who doesn’t like puppies? Ice Age: Continental Drift (54.39), Ted (68.08) and The Amazing Spider-Man (71.41) completed the weekend list. The revenue adjusted index experienced a modest increase of 1.04 points to an index value of 64.29 to signal that moviegoers were still receiving good value for their dollar. Overall, it was a decent weekend at the movies. Nevertheless, we would recommend trying out Aaron Sorkin’s hit series The Newsroom.
