Blocking the Quiet Movie Season

Looking for an imaginative oasis this weekend, filled with the great escape courtesy of your local movie theater? Within that world, will Ready Player One once again be the sweet sanctuary to beat? Perhaps Tyler Perry’s Acrimony will fill its audience with the best, as opposed to the bitterest, feelings? The Black Panther, naturally, is still feeling fine, seeking A Quiet Place to count their profits (while hiding from the sounds of their approaching competition). Moviegoers, meanwhile, are profiting from the scenery encompassing Pacific Rim: Uprising, despite their box-office decline.
Hoping to rise in the movie ranks, Blockers plans on building the biggest, comedy-seeking audience. Meanwhile, as we settle into spring, can The Miracle Season restore our faith in movie humanity and walk away the champion?
Among these winners, I Can Only Imagine what this weekend will bring!

A Ready-Made Weekend

Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One found the biggest fortune within the proverbial Easter Egg this holiday weekend, coming in first at the domestic box office. Tyler Perry’s Acrimony found harmony despite all that nasty betrayal while the Black Panther offered his dark, heroic services. Believers were still uttering, I Can Only Imagine what this spiritual weekend will leave us with as they rose above Pacific Rim: Uprising (who were too busy rebelling against their box office relegation to care about anything religious).
Audiences were ready for one great cinematic gem after another this weekend, finding an Oasis in the most entertaining places. Marital discord hit the right note, a panther refused to go gently into that good (movie) night, the faithful were on fine display and the Pacific was once again a nice place to visit.
Which of our make-believe visitors displayed the greatest show for you this weekend?
