    Weekend Box Office: MAN OF STEEL Soars to New June Record with $113 Million | Collider

    A casual scan of this column would suggest that Man of Steel was the only movie playing this weekend, but This Is The End would beg to differ. The apocalyptic comedy from Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel opened on Wednesday with $7.8 million from 3,055 locations and went on to an estimated $20.5 million this weekend. The R-rated comedy received a warm response from critics (85% on Rotten Tomatoes) and has grossed almost $33 million in five days. That’s just over the reported budget for This Is The End, so WB is not the only happy studio this morning.
    Cool. Was hoping this would survive the onslaught.

    Saw "This is the End" today. It was decent. Dragged for around 20 mins too long, but had some really funny jokes. Didn't think the Pineapple Express 2 stuff would be it in. I'd give it a 4/5.

    Saw "The Heat" yesterday. Thought it was really good, but ran around 20 mins too long. Top contender for Comedy of the Year so far. 4.5/5.

    Review: 'The To Do List' Starring Aubrey Plaza, Bill Hader & Alia Shawkat | The Playlist

    You may not realize until you're watching "The To Do List" how refreshing it is just to see this story told from the female perspective. The situations may be familiar but the voice feels fresh. Carey has said the film was based loosely on her experiences and though much of the film hums along very much in the mold of those other comedies, it also makes time for narrative detours that show the filmmaker is drawing from something other than just other movies. Though not as polished as some of the aforementioned touchstones of the sub-genre, the film nevertheless possesses a shaggy appeal that should help it connect with the audience it deserves. [B]

    Movie Review: The To Do List -- Vulture

    It’s a good thing The To Do List is so funny, because otherwise I wouldn’t know what to do with it. This raunchy, over-the-top high-school sex comedy told from the point of view of a girl features many of the same nasty/sexy, outrageously inappropriate things that such movies about boys have been peddling for decades. But simply by reversing the genders, writer-director Maggie Carey turns the tables on us: By proudly wearing its “otherness” (a word I use ironically) on its sleeve, The To Do List feels fresh and strange and wondrously new. It shouldn’t, but it does.
