Sunday Night Rant:  Splitting Up Movies

Sunday Night Rants The Hunger Games: Mockingjay is the latest film developed from a young adult series of novels that studios  decided to break up its final act into two parts.  Harry Potter started the phenomenon, arguably with good cause since the final book in the series was much larger than earlier entries in the series (though this is a specious argument, as we’ll see below).  Since the...[Read More]

Retro Review Triple Play:  The Hunger Games

Retro Review:  The Hunger Game Series So, the grand finale of Suzanne Collins’ young adult juggernaut, The Hunger Games, is slouching its way towards cinemas this weekend.  I’ve already made my recommendations for movies you should watch that I personally feel captured aspects of this genre better, but despite having sat through these films, I’ve never managed a full review.  So ...[Read More]

Coming Soon Trailers:  Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt. 2, The Night Before,Secret in Their Eyes

Coming Soon Trailers Despite the final installment of The Hunger Games being poised to completely dominate the box office this weekend, we’ve actually got a pretty well rounded week of new releases.  Besides Katniss and the undying ghost of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, we’ve got a serial killer thriller, a raunchy Seth Rogen comedy (but I repeat myself) and a few home video releases.  If y...[Read More]

Spectre Box office

Mockingjay Is Next Weekend With only three low profile nation-wide releases, Spectre and The Peanuts Movie put up some healthy totals for a second consecutive weekend at the Box Office. Spectre, the 24th installment of the James Bond franchise, continued its box-office dominance with a $35.4 million weekend in the U.S. Globally, Spectre has really shined amassing over $500 million abroad. The film...[Read More]

Our Ten’s List:  Famous Foot Chases

Our Ten’s List Way back in April, we featured our ten favorite movie chases involving cars.  There were so many other styles of pursuits, from chariots to wing-suits, that we knew we were going to have to come back to the topic someday.  The return of 007 has given us an excuse to review ten examples of what we consider to be the finest use for your getaway sticks: a good old fashioned foot ...[Read More]

Double Dare Preview:  Hell Comes to Frogtown

Double Dare Preview It’s a new month, which means it’s time for more pain!  I sat through the juvenile experiment that was Rubber, so now I get to pick the movie Erik must suffer through…and with a little help from a lovely lady, I’ve decided he’s going to Frogtown.  Buckle up, it’s going to be one weird ride. Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988) Rowdy Roddy Piper (The...[Read More]

Coming Soon Trailers:  The 33, My All-American, Heist

Coming Soon Trailers This week’s box office is playing it safe, attempting to appeal to a diverse audience and to avoid the current heavy weights, Spectre and The Peanuts Movie.  While that may sound sensible, the niche aspect of this week’s fare may slow any momentum theaters experienced last week, after a disastrous October put audiences in a coma.  I know I’m hard pressed to f...[Read More]

Box Office Wrap up: Spectre Goes Nuts

It’s Bond, James Bond, Charlie Brown   After a few brutal weekends at the Box office, it took a couple of  time-tested franchises to breathe some life into the theatres. Spectre was the big winner here, earning $73 million becoming the second-biggest Bond opening of all time. It’s the 24th film in a series that has run for 53 years. Amazing. Domestically, Spectre failed to live up...[Read More]

Movie Review:  Spectre

Movie Review:  Spectre This weekend, Director Sam Mendes looked to put some life back into a dismal box office while ending the Daniel Craig era of 007 films on a high note.  While his ticket earnings fell just short of Skyfall‘s phenomenal earnings, Spectre was a big success financially, eclipsing Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.  As a final film in the Craig/Bond series, Spectre is a w...[Read More]

Coming Soon Trailers:  Spectre, The Peanuts Movie, Lost in the Sun

Coming Soon Trailers Can November’s new releases breath some life into a sluggish box office, or is everyone saving up their pennies for December’s massive roll out of Star Wars?  Hollywood is hoping there is one person who can get butts in seats, and his name is Bond.  James Bond. Wide Releases Spectre The latest (and ostensibly last) outing for Daniel Craig as famed movie spy James B...[Read More]

strike-out box office

A Crisis At The Box Office After five new release movies whiffed in the Box Office last week, Hollywood struck out again this Halloween weekend as four new movies went largely ignored in favor of the World Series and trick-or-treating. Sandra Bullock‘s political satire Our Brand Is Crisis, Bradley Cooper‘s Chef flick Burnt, drama 60 Minutes II, Truth with Cate Blanchett and Robert Redf...[Read More]
