    Shrek 2 is number 4??? Great movie, but I guess I forgot how successful it was.

    Wow. Think it will make it past Spidey?

    I believe it will get past Spider-Man but that's about it, probably 410 when it's finally gone

    that list means nothing to me. You have to adjust for inflation for bragging rights

    no one ever counts inflation in these days.

    This is great news for Transformers though

    Harry Potter sucks. If your such a fan of Transformers why you always putting them down when something it has accomplished? This is a great thing for the Transformers franchise......

    What a stupid and childish thing to say. I do not have to justify mt love of transformers to anybody especially you. I have never put down "transformers" as a brand or a franchise. I have pointed out some of them many, many, flaws in one out of the three transformers movies. So What? If your referring to my posts in the HP vs Transformers threads you need to reread them. All of my posts pointed stated that HP was a great franchise on its own but the two shouldn't really be compared.

    I still stand by the fact the all time box offices records mean nothing to me. It has nothing to do with transformers. If you look at the top 10 you will notice alot of them are recent movies. They are on this list not because they are such great well loved movies. They are on it because movie tickets cost more now. Movie tickets now cost $10-11 of even $15-16 if you like Imax. It is EASIER for movies to keep breaking these records when the tickets cost more every year. It's like these new athletes breaking old records because they are all on steroids now

    I prefer records that offer an even playing field:
    All Time Box Office Adjusted for Ticket Price Inflation
    Adjusting for inflation Transformers: Rotf lands at 84 all time movies. To me that is very cool despite my issues with the film. Getting all excited that we have to pay more for movies so they can break records does not. but if you consider that a great thing well that's your issue not mine and you shouldn't throw a tantrum if people disagree with you

    No way. This long after it's been out, it has virtually no chance of grabbing another $23,363,706 Million domestically before it's theatrical run is over, especially since it's been a consistent drop each week ever since it opened.

    All the same, I can't believe it made the Top 10, let alone made it to #9.

    Revenge of the Fallen took Revenge of the Sith's place? Kinda... funny.
