The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/10/20 at 10:30 AM CT

Another week, another very light updated. At least we have a movie to talk about this time around - Spongebob is coming back to the big screen (for now) and looks to make August a brighter time. Aside from our Sponge on the Run, however, there's not much else to get excited about. Still, I guess as long as the MPAA Rating Board continues to supply them, I'll continue to cover them and we'll see …

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS:
"An Unmarried Woman" (1978): One woman’s journey of self-discovery brings about a warmly human cultural conversation about female liberation, in this wonderfully frank, funny chronicle of changing 1970s sexual politics by Paul Mazursky. When her husband of 16 years abruptly leaves her for a younger woman, Manhattan gallery worker Erica (a fantastic, Oscar-nominated Jill …

Godzilla vs. Kong and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/03/20 at 11:13 AM CT

Since last week was another wasteland of updates, I have once again lumped it in with this week's MPAA ratings bulletin - even if things aren't much better. Despite a robust list this week, there is really only one film of note to discuss and that is the monster mashup (still scheduled for a November release) Godzilla vs. Kong. But one film is better than none, and I'm glad for anything to talk …

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS:
Adapted from his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, "Glengarry Glen Ross" (1992) shows David Mamet at his searing, profane best. A group of Chicago real-estate salesmen-cum-con artists live on the edge. Life is good for the one on a roll. For the rest, life hangs in the balance. There is no room for losers. A-B-C: Always Be Closing, sell, or go under, is the salesman's mantra. …

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS:
"Solid Metal Nightmares: The Films of Shinya Tsukamoto" (1987-2018): One of the most distinctive and celebrated names in modern Japanese cinema, there's no other filmmaker quite like Shinya Tsukamoto. Since his early days as a teenager making Super 8 shorts, he has remained steadfastly independent, garnering widespread acclaim …

Unhinged, The Old Guard and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/20/20 at 11:26 AM CT

Another week stuck inside, but, perhaps, there is relief on the horizon. For Unhinged, which looks like a modern-day retelling of Falling Down, is (for now) looking to be the first theatrical wide release in July. Now that could all change, but as it stands, audiences starved for a theatrical experience could readily support that - even with social distancing in place. On the other side of …

Hamilton and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Chris Kavan - wrote on 05/13/20 at 10:00 AM CT

First off, sorry for skipping last week's update, but I just couldn't get myself worked up over two updated movies, neither of which were anything approaching wide release status. I will include them below with this week's update so you know all the excitement you missed. That being said, this week at least brings on big film - one that is, alas, skipping theaters, but should make a big splash …

THIS WEEK'S BEST BETS:
The great Jason Robards recreates his Broadway role as the iconoclastic Murray Burns in this big-screen adaptation of "A Thousand Clowns" (1965). Murray is funny, feisty, compassionate and very determined to have nothing to do with the lemming-like rush-hour world. But his resolve is tested when …
