Weekend Box Office: G.I. Joe, Tyler Perry Score Big, The Host Fails

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/31/13 at 11:34 PM CT

Easter weekend was a good weekend for the box office. Thanks to a pair of big openings, the weekend was in a virtual dead heat with the same weekend last year and maybe Hollywood can finally shake off the funk that has plagued it the first couple of months this year. It wasn't all smiles as it turns out you can force feed young adults only so much drama/romance before even they tire of the genre....

My Take On the Worst of the Worst Movies Ever, Part 3

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/30/13 at 11:10 PM CT

It's not like part one and two contained some great movies - but some of them weren't completely terrible. However, we're getting down to wire here and now the movies truly start getting to the point where, given a choice, I would rather pass than choose to watch any of them again. The best part? It's only going to get worse from here! Well, what are you waiting for? Here we go people, we're brea...

New in Theaters March 29: G.I. Joe Retaliation, The Host, Tyler Perry's Temptation

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/28/13 at 03:19 PM CT

Last week was another solid week for Hollywood. It's too bad comparisons to last year have to involve the Juggernaut known as The Hunger Games or else the news would have been much better received. An action movie proved that people haven't totally given up on the genre - which is good news, as there is a big one coming out this weekend. Another movie targeting the YA audience will try to make it...

My Take On the Best of the Best Movies Ever, Part Three

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/27/13 at 01:45 PM CT

Okay - this is the third week in my Best Picture breakdown and I'm getting into the good stuff now. I'm going to go from #30 to #21 this week and these are when some of the real winners start to shine. While previous entries I have been a bit lukewarm to ambivalent about - now I'm getting into the real meat of list - and it's only going to get better from here. But I'll let the list speak for its...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of March 26 -- April 1

"Lincoln" was Steven Spielberg's long-gestating bio-drama about our 16th president and the events surrounding his last few months in office. The director spent more than a decade researching the project (and trying to get studio backing for the film, which eventually required the cooperation of DreamWorks SKG, 20th Century Fox, Reliance Entertainment, ...

Weekend Box Office: The Croods a Stone-Age Hit, Olympus a Strong Second

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/24/13 at 11:15 PM CT

It was a good opening weekend for families and finally, FINALLY we have an action film that surpassed expectations. It's too bad that the same weekend last year The Hunger Games opened to the tune of $152 million - more than the top 12 films combined made this weekend. Still, despite the 35% year-to-year decline, it was still one of the brighter weekends this year and hopefully portends good thin...

My Take On the Worst of the Worst Movies Ever, Part 2

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/23/13 at 11:57 AM CT

Last week was a very short start at breaking down the Razzie "winners" and seeing how my opinion stacked up with the so-called experts. This week I really start getting into the meat of the selections - although the really terrible movies are still upcoming. Still - at least at this point the movies are watchable - I won't be able to say the same thing in the next couple weeks (believe me, it get...

New in Theaters March 22: Admission, Croods, Olympus Has Fallen, Spring Breakers

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/21/13 at 09:41 AM CT

It's going to be a rush at the box office this weekend as four new movies try to unseat Oz the Great and Powerful and become the new box office champ. Once again we have movies coming from multiple angles - action, comedy, family and... edgy? Provocative? James Franco in cornrows? Anyway - considering the mixed reaction of audiences on all fronts this year, it's still going to be an uphill battle...

My Take On the Best of the Best Movies Ever, Part Two

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/20/13 at 11:21 AM CT

Last week I started my project in breaking down what I think of the past 85 years of Academy Award winning best picture films. While I admit to not having seen every film on the list, I have no problem with espousing my view on those films that I have had the privilege to watch. Starting from the bottom and working my way to the top - this week I'm counting down from #40 to #31 - still a ways awa...

"Les Miserables": The long-anticipated big-screen adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the world -- and still breaking box office records everywhere in its 27th year. Set against the backdrop of post-Revolution France, the film retells Victor Hugo's politically cha...

Weekend Box Office: Oz Great Again, The Call Gets Picked Up; Wonderstone Fizzles

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/17/13 at 09:44 PM CT

After last week finally gave Hollywood a sigh of relief in the box office department, things cooled down once again. The top 12 films are virtually in a dead heat compared to the same period last year - and thanks can be given to a big budget fantasy epic and a surprising turn from what I was expecting to be a generic thriller. The same can't be said for dueling magicians, as there was not magic ...

My Take On the Worst of the Worst Movies Ever, Part 1

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/15/13 at 10:13 PM CT

For every great (or even good) movie released, there is a stinker waiting in the wings. Some movies clearly fall into the "so bad it's good" category. Other are just plain bad. These are the movies you want to erase from your memory, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind-style, but you can't. The Golden Raspberry Awards was an impromptu creation by American copywriter and publicist John J. B. Wil...

New in Theaters March 15: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, The Call

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/14/13 at 02:05 PM CT

After Oz the Great and Powerful finally managed to jump start the box office - but can is sustain enough momentum to provide a second weekend of thrills? Out of the two new releases, only one has the potential to open to decent numbers, but even with some big names attached, it's going to be an uphill battle methinks. Unless a comedy can work some major magic at the box office, I'm pretty certain...

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/13/13 at 12:05 PM CT

They get things wrong as many times as they get things right, but whether you believe in the process or not, the Academy Awards are a decent indicator of what makes a great film. So I decided to list and rank every Best Picture award winner (that I have seen, of course) and see where they would wind up. Now, this is different than my favorite movies list - I took many things into account - but th...

Weekend Box Office: Oz Proves Great, Powerful and Finally Gives 2013 a Hit

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/10/13 at 08:33 PM CT

Ding dong the box office blues are dead... at least for one weekend. Thanks to a fantasy spectacle, 2013 managed to beat the same weekend in 2012 by 7%. While that's not a huge victory - any victory is welcome given that out of the 30 films that have had wide releases in theaters this year - 16 of them have failed to hit the $10 million mark. Hopefully this will be the start of a trend and not a ...

New in Theaters March 08: Oz the Great and Powerful, Dead Man Down

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/07/13 at 03:54 PM CT

We're, what - nine weeks into 2013 this year? And almost every one of them has been worse than the same period when compared to 2012. Granted, things fluctuate and last year was (in my opinion) a very strong year for movies - but things are a bit sad right now. However, I have hope that we will finally have a certified winning weekend thanks to prequel to a classic that should provide the boost t...

Weekend Box Office: Jack Proves a Giant Disappointment

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/04/13 at 12:59 AM CT

Chalk up another weak weekend for 2013. Despite having a diverse lineup of new offerings, the box office could only bring in $94.4 million - a 38% decline compared to last year. It has been a rough year so far and no CGI fairy tale, horror sequel or drunken shenanigans could provide the lift needed to turn things around.


As predicted, though the CGI-heavy Jac...
