Now that we have some respectable genre films back in theaters, I’m resuming the Box Office report. I almost posted something for the week Jackass 2 was tops at the box office, but I preferred to spend the time openly weeping for the demise of intellect and good taste.
Not making the Top Ten, but a new genre release is the 3D rerelease of “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Considering I could only find it on 2 screens in my entire state (Colorado), I imagine few people even knew of its existence.
