Mamo #84: And that was without a single drop of rum

Pirates arrives, guns blazing - and at least one Matt is willing to call it his favourite thing ever. Sailing against stiff competition the numbers are still respectable out of the gate, but how long can it hold in the ever-deepening tidal wavefront of the summer of 2007? Wait: what's a tidal wavefront?

Mamo #83: This could go either way.

So far so good for the beleaguered summer blockbuster. Another weekend past, another record set. But this week we realize that the giants are going to be nestled in awfully tight, with 3 different films each occupying 4000+ movie screens. Just how many records can be set, just how big is the current marketplace? All this and more, in this week's Mamo.

Mamo #82: Amazing, Spectacular, Sensational

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout, down came the rain to the tune of a hundred and fifty-one goddamn million dollars. Yup, the spider's back, but in the face of stiff reviews and a lacklustre weekday performance, how long is he going to last? Also: doc soup and preview prevention. Mamo!

Goodbye, Jack Valenti. Hello, high definition. Also, look out, because Spiderman will be here soon. Mamo spends the time.
