New in Theaters July 01: The BFG, The Legend of Tarzan, Purge: Election Year

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/30/16 at 06:43 AM CT

It may be telling that the biggest fireworks over the July 4th box office aren't going to come from the newcomers, but rather Finding Dory. I suspect the animated sequel is going to continue to put up impressive numbers while director Steven Spielberg and the second Tarzan film of the year are looking at an uphill battle to win over audiences. Granted, there is also a timely horror movie coming o...

Bad Moms, Storks and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/29/16 at 06:58 AM CT

After a few weeks of some pretty good bulletins, we have a shorter one this time around. Only two major releases are finding ratings glory - an ensemble, female-driven comedy that I think actually looks pretty fun from what I've seen and an animated film that gives a new meaning to word "delivery", I should be happy, I'm guessing next week everyone is going to be out for the 4th so I don't even k...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of June 28-July 4

Harley Lond - wrote on 06/28/16 at 03:24 AM CT

Due this week from The Criterion Collection is one of the greatest films of all time, the Stanley Kubrick classic that helped launch the new American Cinema of the 1960s by seamlessly mixing satire, sex, violence, drama and irony in one delightful package: "Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" (1964). Kubrick’s painfully fu...

Weekend Box Office: Finding Dory Scores Huge Second Weekend, No Resurgence for Independence Day

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/26/16 at 07:25 PM CT

Coming in to this weekend, there was a good chance Finding Dory was going to repeat as champion. Not only did the Pixar sequel top the box office, it dominated the competition. In fact, outside the above-average performance of Black Lively's The Shallows, most of the new films were disappointing, to say the least. It was a sad weekend for Matthew McConaughey and Roland Emmerich as Independence Da...

New in Theaters June 24: Independence Day: Resurgence, Free State of Jones, The Shallows, Neon Demon

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/23/16 at 06:55 AM CT

It's going to be a crowded weekend for new movies, but it's probably Disney that is still going to come out on top as Finding Dory is likely to top all newcomers. Granted, two horror films, a historic period piece (even with action and Matthew McConaughey) and a sequel trying to ride a wave of nostalgia (ala Jurassic World) don't offer up the kind of competition that results in upsets. Even if Do...

Ghostbusters, The Infiltrator, Inferno and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/22/16 at 10:26 AM CT

A new week full of divisive new films getting non-divisive ratings. We have a remake of a beloved 80s classic that has drawn the ire of bull-hurt man-babies across the internets. We have yet another adaptation from author Dan Brown that is sure it be both lauded and ridiculed and, finally, the most normal film out of the bunch looks to be Bryan Cranston turning from Breaking Bad heel to skipping ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of June 21-June 27

Harley Lond - wrote on 06/21/16 at 03:07 AM CT


Jeff Nichols (just 37 years old) is on a winning streak. His first major film, the apocalyptic "Take Shelter" (2011), starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain, about a husband and father who has terrifying visions and channels his fears into building a storm shelter, won tons of awards (including the Critics Week Grand Prize at Cannes), and scored high at Rotte...

Weekend Box Office: Finding Dory Nabs Record Opening, Central Intelligence Solid

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/19/16 at 07:49 PM CT

Finally, a weekend worth celebrating (even if you aren't Disney) as Finding Dory broke several records in its first place opening. Central Intelligence wasn't a slouch, either, as it took second place with strong numbers of its own. That meant, however, that the high-profile films of last week all took some bigger-than-expected drops - with Warcraft taking the harshest nosedive. In any case, this...

New in Theaters June 17: Finding Dory, Central Intelligence

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/16/16 at 06:47 AM CT

There hasn't really been a true "blockbuster" yet this summer. Despite some big movies making it to the top of the box office: X-Men: Apocalypse, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and The Conjuring 2 - not one of those really made the kind of impact that is going to be talked about. Plus you have major missteps from the likes of Alice Through the Looking Glass and Warcraft. But all...

Sully, Ice Age: Collision Course, Bridget Jones's Baby and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/15/16 at 09:37 AM CT

Following a pretty decent update last week we have... another pretty decent update. Granted, personally I'm not looking forward to many of the movies this week but I'm sure plenty of people will be much more excited than I am. I'm just glad they're keeping things interesting and giving out some big-name ratings, because nothing is worse than having nothing to talk about. So let's all hope the rat...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of June 14-June 20

Harley Lond - wrote on 06/14/16 at 03:58 AM CT


"10 Cloverfield Lane" has been billed as the "spiritual successor" to 2008's "Cloverfield" but in no way is it a sequel -- it's much, much more. Produced by "Cloverfield's" (and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot company, the film -- linked to the first in the weirdness, fear and comedy "that Cloverfield was born out of" -- is a cla...

Weekend Box Office: Conjuring 2 Scary Good in First, Warcraft Bombs but Booms in China

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/12/16 at 07:23 PM CT

It was kind of a silly weekend for movies. Two sequel proved that audiences will show up a second time around, provided you're making a sequel to something worth watching in the first place. Meanwhile, a massive video game adaptation found little love in America but made a huge splash in China with near-record numbers. All three new films also debuted in the top three at the box office, meaning t...

New in Theaters June 10: Warcraft, The Conjuring 2, Now You See Me 2

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/09/16 at 06:49 AM CT

With two weeks of weak sequels bogging down the summer box office, will this weekend offer up some good news? We, yet again, have two sequels on the docket - one the second entry in one of the most impressive horror films in recent memory and the second to an ensemble crime/mystery/thriller revolving around a group of magicians. Aside from those two, we have a video game adaptation based on the w...

This week we have some hot, new contenders including a super-villain party, the return of everyone's favorite holiday alien invaders, a superb-looking stop-motion animated film, a sequel to a horror movie based on a fake board game and the best reason to stay out of the water since Jaws.

Harley Lond - wrote on 06/07/16 at 04:00 AM CT


"Hail Caesar!" continues Joel and Ethan Coen's deconstruction/reconstruction of Hollywood genres (following their takes on Westerns, spies , and music bios), here making a movie about moviemakers making movies, set in the dying days of the Golden Age of Hollywood. It's a comedy/satire filled with so many cinema memes you'll need a guidebook to keep track (see...

Weekend Box Office: Turtles Tops X-Men in Battle of the Weak-Willed Sequels

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/05/16 at 08:59 PM CT

In yet another underwhelming display of unoriginality, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows joins X-Men Apocalypse as being the top movie of the weekend yet still having disappointing results. It seems sequilitis is affecting the box office this month and I don't know if the summer will bring any better news. In any case, the best news of the weekend didn't belong to the top film but ...

New in Theaters June 03: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Me Before You, Popstar

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/02/16 at 06:42 AM CT

So many movies with such long titles this week. As such, we have another blockbuster sequel looking to set itself apart from all the other blockbusters sequels (or, in the case of Through the Looking Glass - the complete opposite) currently in theaters. We also have a comedy from Lonely Island spoofing boy bands and pop music in general and finally an uplifting drama for all the women out there. ...

Welcome again to another exciting edition of the ratings game! Our contestants this week include a fascinating, fact-based look into a rebellion that formed in the midst of the Civil War, a adults-only animated film and not one but two thrilling horror films coming soon to a theater near you (if you dare!). There is sure to be something that will interest you this time around - if only every week...
