Lionsgate is considered a "mini-major" -- if there was a seventh spot in the quiz, that's where it would be. DreamWorks is distributed mostly by Disney, although not owned by them.

Dreamworks, SKG, was founded by Spielberg, Katzenberg, and Geffen. Katzenberg had been a chairman at Disney before he left to co-found Dreamworks. They wanted to take market share away from Disney. I don't know if they ever acknowledged this but it was long rumored that Antz was made to compete directly with A Bug's Life, and that The Prince of Egypt was referred to in-house as "The Zion King." That was a long time ago and studios change hands, but, at least when it was founded it certainly was not owned by Disney.

DreamWorks Animation has been shuffling around distributors for a while now. First they were part of the main DreamWorks studio, then they had films distributed by Paramount, then 20th Century Fox, and now Universal. Apparently the animation studio was “spun off” in 2004 according to Wikipedia, and for a while other DreamWorks movies would be released by Disney through Touchstone. Kind of confusing but then again lots of Hollywood deals are sometimes.

Really, when was the Ben Affleck movie with him playing Batman released? If it hasn't been released yet, is it accurate to say he has played him in a movie? Also, you should add David Niven and Woody Allen to the actors that have played James Bond - both were in the 1967 Casino Royale as James Bond and Jimmy Bond.

So a while back I rewatched all the Jurassic Park movies and even decided to check out the latest one. Here’s my updated ranking of all the movies.

1). Jurassic Park (best one by far)
2). The Lost World: Jurassic Park (still has problems but also some pretty great moments as well)
3). Jurassic World (also has some good moments but I actually dislike this movie now)
4). Jurassic Park III (not good)
5). Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (terrible).
+1

Aug 14, 2019
Add me to the chorus: the original Jurassic Park was awesome. The second was pretty good. Everything after that is worthless. Jurassic World had one truly odious exchange in which a character tries to make some edgy meta-commentary about how everything now is branded and rebooted and only done as a bald cash grab, as if that somehow excuses what the makers of Jurassic World were doing. If you're going to shamelessly peddle garbage to maximize profits, at least own what you're doing.

And now Minions 2 which I've been told not to see with the grandkids because I have a seizure disorder. Somebody should think about these things ahead of time.

It's just because parents need something to do with their kids. There's no point in comparing box office returns for Minions and In Bruges because people go see them for totally different reasons. Most of the box office receipts from Minions come from people who aren't expecting a good movie. They're expecting 90 minutes in which they don't need to wrangle their children every 30 seconds.

Avengers passed Avatar? Aw. I didn't even like Avatar, and for some reason, that makes me sad. Maybe it's because Avatar was at least its own movie, whereas Endgame's receipts are so high because it's the last chapter in the MCU (or at least this version of the MCU? I get confused). I've heard Endgame is really good, but I just haven't taken to the Marvel movies, and now I'm so far behind that I can't fathom ever catching up. It's also pretty incredible that with all the inflation, superhero franchises, reboots, and everything else going on in the past 20 years, Titanic has held on at #3. It's mind-blowing that a tragic love story earned more, without inflation, than the first major Star Wars movie in 12 years.

My friend who has never watched a single Marvel movie before and didn't see any reason why he would be interested in comic book movies watched Endgame and thought it was great. He asked me for a "best of" list of MCU movies he could watch to catch up. He asked for 5 but I gave him 7. These were the top 5 though, IMO, both in terms of individual quality and how much they add to the story leading in to Endgame: (in viewing order)
1. The Avengers
2. Guardians of the Galaxy
3. Captain America: Civil War
4. Thor: Ragnarok
5. Avengers: Infinity War

And then of course Endgame if you hadn't seen that already.

If you wanted to watch all 7 I recommended I also told him to watch the first Iron Man, which would come before everything else, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which comes between the first Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.

I'm also amazed The Cameron held the #1 and #2 spots for so long, but IMO it was richly deserved.
+1

Aug 14, 2019
and if any movie deserved to take the top spot from them both Endgame would. You say it's not "it's own thing"... but I think in a way it is more it's own thing than Avatar or Titanic. We have never seen anything even remotely like it in all of Hollywood's history. A franchise of franchises, 11 years and 22 films in the making of so many different characters and worlds all leading toward this one climactic event. Titanic and Avatar were both epic, transportative films, but Infinity War and Endgame were a cinematic experience like no other. It's hard to believe they managed to pull it off when you think about it. Look at all the other studios that have tried to copy Marvel's formula and failed. Every one of them.
