Here are the weekend box office numbers. I can’t believe the film Hostel is at the top of the list. I don’t even want to watch the commercials, much less see the film. From what I can tell, the entire movie focuses on the systematic torture of some teenagers. That’s entertainment!

I guess these types of movies are pretty popular. Saw topped $100 million. And look at this — Saw II’s made $87 million. That’s a lot of money for a sequel about a guy who finds new and unusual ways to kill people.

One bright spot regarding the weekend box office numbers — The Chronicles of Narnia has made $247 million so far. That’s also a lot of money — more proof that Hollywood could reap larger profits if they’d make movies that parents want to take their kids to see. Seems to me that there’s a whole lot of wholesome kids’ books just waiting to be made into movies.
