Bad Moms turned out to be quite the hit this past summer, scoring $180 million worldwide on a $20 million budget. It is enough for STX Entertainment to be figuring out not only a sequel, but a spin-off titled Bad Dads. The success should not be too much of a surprise, as the film should […]

Jupiter Ascending, quite the despised film that I guess won’t go away thanks to a new home video format. My average film score on the Blu-ray and kind thoughts on the merits it did bring to the table were met with plenty of disdain when I posted the review and shared it to social media. The […]

The raunchy film described as “incredibly funny!” by Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, is the […]
From the creators of “The Matrix” Trilogy comes “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science fiction action adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike,” “Foxcatcher”) and Mila Kunis (“Oz the Great and Powerful”) lead a cast that includes Sean Bean (“The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy), Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), Douglas […]
Jupiter Ascending is likely the most polarizing film of 2015’s first quarter. Nobody went to see it and a lot of those that did, didn’t really care for it. Personally, as a fan of the Wachowskis, it was one I was anticipating regardless of whether or not it was delayed. Was it a good or […]
After months of speculation and curiosity, countered by delays and implied bad buzz, things have unfortunately not tipped in favor of Jupiter Ascending, the new, original sci-fi/fantasy film from the Wachowskis. I really wanted to like this movie and all of the right elements are certainly there, given the fairly game cast, the production design, […]
If I was completely ignorant and judged Jupiter Ascending by its cover, I’d be staying the hell away from it even though I love science fiction. The trailers for the movie looked absolutely horrible. When they pulled it from its former release schedule last year I have to be honest with y’all, I was hoping […]
Third Person is the latest film from Paul Haggis, director of the on the nose Academy Award winner for Best Picture; Crash. The film was a entrant in the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival where it wasn’t met with the greatest of buzz or accolades. Despite boasting a rather impressive compilation of noteworthy stars and […]

Another month, another remake, director Phil Alden Robinson’s The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is a remake of a 1997 Israeli film The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum. Both films deal with the idea of anger and mortality. The new version has a recognizable cast of Robin Williams, Mila Kunis (who is also an Executive Producer), Melissa Leo, and […]
Guilame Canet’s Blood Ties is an American-language remake of the 2008 French film Les liens du sang. The film went to Cannes and really didn’t make much noise. It wasn’t a part of the film competition but received screen in the “Out Of Competition” category. And I can tell you it was just a surprise to […]
Clive Owen and Billy Crudup star in the gritty crime drama, Blood Ties, arriving on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital HD UltraViolet), DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) and Digital HD June 24 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. . . . .
The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is a big release for this time of year, with a likely gross ending up north of a billion dollars worldwide. Given the nature of this release, it only makes sense for Warner Brothers to debut trailers for a few of their potential blockbusters for next year around the same […]

This has not really occurred to me until recently, but Oz is quite the expansive franchise. Along with the original books by L. Frank Baum, the series has had a multitude of different adaptations on almost every platform, including several films and musicals, stage plays, comics, and even video games. Given how successful it was […]

Directed by Seth MacFarlane, creator of television’s uproarious and irreverent hits “Family Guy,” and “American Dad,” Ted stars Mark Wahlberg (Contraband, The Other […]
