Monster Hits

I love you but I've chosen darknessOn my way home from a lovely week in scorching New York City … and apparently Toronto has improved on the Manhattan weather by adding thunderstorms and humidity? (You know, we don’t have to be a world leader all the time.)

Anyway, while I’m in the air, you might want to know that “Eclipse” surprised no one by making all the money in the world (or at least $161 million of it) over the long holiday weekend, while M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender” took second place with $53.2 million in the same expanded frame. Not bad for one of the worst-reviewed movies of the year — though, in all fairness, I still haven’t seen it and might enjoy it when I do.

I mean, who knows? Stranger events have occurred.
