After such big hit opening weekends with Taken and American Sniper, we finally get a reminder of what January box office reports are SUPPOSED to look like. American Sniper continued to dominate the box office; pairing Oscar buzz and a weird Chik Fil A effect to stay at the top spot. Most of the new releases that it faced off with were not as well-received.
I ranked Gone Girl as my #17 movie of the year in my Top 145 Movies of 2014. I am a fan of Ben Affleck other than when he is in a movie with JLo. David Fincher is even in my top five all time favorite directors. Gillian Flynn wrote a great book and screenplay. But I do not want them to make their next rumored movie together!
