Ranking Pirates 5 over Wonder Woman looks really dumb now.

I'm back and I got me some movies to see.

Last update:
august 13 Yeah, I've been on vacation again. Yeah, I'm back and things've changed. Wonder Woman owns first place. Spider-Man is a solid third. Dunkirk (a very good flick) has climbed to 7th. Girls Trip seems to have surprised everyone. It's 11th. Dumb-looking Emoji Movie has cracked the top 20. Valerian seems to have bombed (but I still want to see it). Frank has claimed 1st place, K Powers has stolen 2nd, and Smileman has taken 3rd. So, a complete shake-up there.

Previous updates:
july 20 Wonder Woman continues to catch up to Guardians. Spider-Man jumps up to 3rd. War For the Planet of the Apes enters at 13th. Baby Driver moves up to 10th. And there are big-hitters still to come. Hornet keeps 1st place, Beck steals 2nd, and Phantom remains at 3rd.
july 13 Catching up after some vaca... Dispicable Me 3 is in at 4th. Spider-Man is in at 7th. Baby Driver is in at 12th. The House is in the basement (20th). And can I just say that it's inexplicable why Transformers is doing so well. Anyway Hornet moves from 3rd to 1st place, Cap moves into 2nd place, and Phantom takes 3rd.
Whoa, more than half of the line-up is in! Also, some bad news for the few of you who picked Amityville for the top 20. Its official release date is now TBD.
june 28 Cars 3 moves up 4 spots to 4th. Transformers Crap enters the fray at 7th. The rest is minor reshuffling. But that means that although Beck stays in first place, Phinn claims 2nd, and Hornet remains in 3rd.
Also, looks like Lowriders is done making money.
 

Gal Gadot rocks it
