PAST MTV VMA WINNERS, ranked by Stereogum. REM beaten by Katy Perry. Sigh.


WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Guardians of the Galaxy retakes the top of the chart with 17.6 million, as all of the new competition fell short.  Marvel's 251.9 million domestic take officially pushes GotG past Transformers 4 to become the top grosser of the summer.And it will soon pass Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the biggest grossing movie of the year. Worldwide, Guardians is just short of the roughly 500 million it needs to profit...but has yet to open in China or Japan. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shows (if the estimates hold up) with 16.8 million, and is on track to wind up in the black. If IStay, which most gurus picked for the top slot, showed with 16.4 million, as a strong Friday petered out over the weekend proper. Nevertheless, the teen weeper has a mere 11 million production budget.  Let's Be Cops takes the fourth slot with a fairly leggy 11 million and is near profitability on domestic receipts alone. The debut of When The Game Stands Tall rounds out the Top 5 with 9 million; it may need some help from the faith-based community to recoup a 15 million budget plus marketing costs. Normally, this is the spot where I'd note that Expendables 3 is flopping, but Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For did even worse in its debut, coming in eighth with 6.5 million, mostly bad reviews and bad word of mouth against a rumored 60-70 million budget. Ouch.

FRANK MILLER'S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, btw, pretty much deserved the bad reviews and bad word of mouth.  Most of the reviews note the sequel is more explicit--both in nudity and violence--than the original, yet more boring.  On the last point, I tend to disagree.  The problem with A Dame To Kill For is not necessarily that it's boring; it's certainly as visually stylish (and stylized) as the first one.  Rather, the problem is that this one is much more joyless.  Granted, it seems Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez set out to tell a more grim set of stories this time around, but there's even less sense of comic relie, let alone outright fun this time.  Moreover, the original tended to focus on the classic noir theme of the ambigous antihero rising to some level of heroism and --while other noir tropes abound here, there's much less heroic in these tales.

SUGE KNIGHT: The famed music producer (and jailbird) was shot six tiimes at a pre-VMAs party in a Los Angeles nightclub hosted by singer Chris Brown.
