Having a little fun at my expense, are we? Could you maybe, y'know, not grossly mischaracterize my argument? I know certain people here that are still holding grudges over TLJ can't be convinced that they're ever in error, but I thought you could. I gave you plenty of examples of data backing up my argument. I even offered to show my work, an offer you ignored. Unlike some people, I am willing to back up my claims with real evidence instead of expecting others to take me solely on my word and/or resorting to unfounded conjecture, bad-faith misrepresentations of the data, and just plain made-up bullshit.
Would it be safe to say that you've already made up your mind, and that I'd be wasting my time trying to show you any data that supports my argument? If not, then please, show some genuine willingness to look at the data. I'll even put it all together for you to save you the trouble. But if you don't really care to hear anything I have to say, and all you care to do is just insult me because you've dismissed my argument out of hand and think it's only worth poking fun at, let me know. I have other things to attend to and spending several hours collecting data and creating and formatting charts for this discussion would be a serious detour.
I'm sorry man, you're great at collecting data and making graphs but the conclusions you make from them arent always accurate. Things like denying that Kinect was the main factor in late 360 sales and this argument are just plain silly.
Your data shows that all movies take a hit after New Years, nobody is denying that that particular week has a big drop so look at the weeks beyond that. Its having bigger WoW drops and losing theaters at a faster pace than most other movies currently in theaters, even when compared to movies that released before it to the point where Jumanji is now ahead of it.
If people wanted to see the movie than they would see it, either in the weeks before New Years week or in the weeks after it.
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
