BEST SEQUEL/SPINOFF: 5) Blade Runner: 2049 It was the sequel that everyone first heard was happening and went “oh no”. Then, when we saw who was set to direct, and star, our hopes were restored. Blade Runner 2049 is a visual masterpiece that had fans debating if it was actually better than the original. That’s a big feat. 4) Wonder Woman Wonder Woman made her DCEU debut in Batman VS Superman, and the internet quickly decided she was the best thing in that film. Cutahead to her film debut, which might have just single handedly saved the entire DCEU. It … Continue reading Best Of 2017: Part Two
Obviously, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is untouchable. It made 220M last weekend, and is still quite likely to do 120-140M over the Wed-Mon span that I’m trying to predict. There are a bunch of new movies that will slowly chip away at the competition. Some open tomorrow, some on Friday, and some on Christmas Day. 1) Star Wars: The Last Jedi- 130M (Wed-Mon) 2) Jumanji- 55M (Wed-Mon) 3) Pitch Perfect 3- 40M (Fri-Mon) 4) Greatest Showman- 25M (Wed-Mon) 5) Downsizing- 15M (Fri-Mon) 6) Father Figures – 12M (Fri-Mon) 7) Ferdinand- 12M (Wed-Mon) 8) Coco- 10M (Wed-Mon) 9) Wonder- 5M … Continue reading Holiday Weekend Box Office Predictions
With the total lack of new releases the past two weeks (except for that sad Morgan Freeman/Tommy Lee Jones thing), the box office is wide open for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi to come in and do some truly amazing work. Of course, when a film is tracking this high, it’s almost impossible to land a perfect dart. I’ve seen everything from 180M to 220M. I do think Ferdinand will open well, and that could take a small chunk away from The Last Jedi. Small though. As far as holdovers go, with all the “awards” announcements, films like … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Can ‘The Last Jedi’ Hit 200M?
The Academy invited 774 people to their voting ranks. No, I’m not going to give my thoughts individually on 774 people. That would be insane. However, I’m always amazed at how quickly it takes some people, and how long it … Continue reading New Academy Voting Members- My Thoughts

Even though there are a lot of new releases this weekend, they all are projected to suck, and none of them are going to remotely challenge The Fate Of The Furious for 1st place. Hell, I’m not even sure they … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Furious’ To Go Unchecked
The short answer is “probably”. Oddly enough, Kong: Skull Island is opening without any competition. I find that odd, considering Beauty and the Beast, which is currently projected to open north of 130M, has at least The Belko Experiment opening … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: Can ‘Kong’ Take Out ‘Logan’?
So here are the 10 films that I graded the highest, that the majority of critics seemed to not like. In order to qualify for this list, the film must have had less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. Each film in my top 10 probably would have gotten a Fresh rating, even though my #10 film received a B-.

I haven’t posted my year end list because there are still a few films I’m trying to see. I might not get to see all of them, but I’m giving myself through next weekend (at least) because a bunch of … Continue reading My Year End List (Coming Soon)
Here’s the thing… school is starting to get back in session, and we have some very divisive films leading the box office. Suicide Squad had a huge fall last week, and is bound to drop another +50% this weekend. It … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: No New Films Will Topple ‘Suicide’, ‘Party’
My post last week was pretty popular, so I’ve decided to do this each week until the season (SERIES?) finale. Spoilers ahead. Audrey– Nothing happened that would have changed that there’s no chance she’s a killer this season. 0%. Emma– … Continue reading Scream: Season 2- Who Is The Killer 2
It is very possible that Batman V Superman actually falls to second place in its third frame. The massive decline it had in week two has set it up for failure in week three. Another hefty decline of around 60% … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Superman’ No Longer ‘The Boss’
Batman Vs Superman will have two factors to fight. The first is that the film is no longer on a Holiday weekend, so inflated grosses are automatically deflated. The second is the reviews, which are bound to catch up to … Continue reading Box Office Predictions: ‘Batman’ Will Drop Hard, ‘God’s Not’ Impressed
These were the films that really stood out to me to have several actors in various roles who were all hitting their marks perfectly. 10) Mad Max: Fury Road Notably: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Zoe Kravitz, … Continue reading 2015 In Review: Best Ensemble
Anyone who remembers the humble beginnings of Netflix will remember that it was merely an alternative to blockbuster, very few would have imagined that it would have become something that would rival most networks. Like it’s network counterparts Netflix has ventured into original programing. One of these original programs is an absolute gem, A very Murray Christmas. This show takes the tired format of the holiday variety show and turns it on its head by making it a self aware parody in the vein of curb your enthusiasm. Murray plays a forlorn celebrity who is contractually obligated to star in … Continue reading It Came From Netflix: A Very Murray Christmas
