Their polls condense movie related ratings and demographic information into a single distinctive CinemaScore grade measuring a movies' appeal among theater audiences. A coveted "A+" from Cinemascore score from opening night theater audiences is a rare occurrence. "A+" scores mean strong word of mouth business, repeated viewings and are the best industry guarantee of box office success. Since 1982, about ninety films have received the top mark averaging to about two movies per year.

The Hollywood Tentpole (2005-2015)
In past decade as Hollywood tentpole* films have been over-prevalent, which of these tentpole projects BEST shows that Hollywood can still put out high quality material with originality** and intelligence? Suggestions welcome at Poll Suggestion Thread! *A tentpole film is a high-budget feature film by a major studio (WB, Fox, Sony, Universal, Disney) meant to ensure high box office profits with mass promotion, wide international release on a single date or in a close period with possible 3D, Thursday showings and trilogy/franchise screenings. **Originality is not restricted to being an "original film." Originality can mean aspects of story, craft and cinematic significance. Remember, Stanley Kubrick is considered one of the most original filmmakers of all time and every single one of his classic films is an adaptation of a novel. Note: The criteria for the selected films beyond "tentpole" definition is that the critical and audience consensus be at least fairly positive in the IMDb, audience, fanbase and critical communities as a general consensus. My personal feelings about any of these films are NOT a factor.
