Video game movies don’t exactly have the best track records in Hollywood. While there are a select few that managed to sweep in some dough, there hasn’t been a single adaptation that has received the reception they were hoping for.
Fraternities and sororities offer many benefits to students — leadership, participation in college activities, and bonds that run deeper than blood. Although being inducted into Greek organizations can lead to profitable results, the pledging process and practice of hazing rituals can prove otherwise.
After the abysmal first chapter in the rebooted series, we head back into the sewers for some more (not-so) hot turtle action. Radioactive fighting turtles are not exactly a concept built for adult minds. Even the original Ninja Turtles of the ’90s were a stretch, Vanilla Ice and all.
Fishes ‘N Loaves: Heaven Sent is an inspirational comedy awarded the Dove “Faith Friendly” seal. You’ll be able to find the movie on DVD, digital and On Demand on Sept. 6.
It’s no question filmmaker Oliver Stone loves his country, but he’s also made a career out of going against the established order. Whether he’s tackling history in films like Platoon or Born on the Fourth of July, or profiling presidents with JFK, Nixon and W., Stone portrays America in his own unique way.
Today’s film market is all about the sequel. Franchising is such an important factor in turning a profit — particularly in summer, which is flooded with additional installments of both recent and distant movies past. Though producing a sequel is a common decision among studios, the results are hit-and-miss. This week’s home entertainment releases, however, all strike gold.
Is it too soon for Sully? Is this a mere cash grab for Warner Bros. to adapt a true account and snag a few Oscars in the process? The importance of its story says otherwise. Seven years ago, Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger successfully executed an emergency water landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River off Manhattan, after it was disabled by striking a flock of birds.
There’s nothing quite like writing a first draft. The rush of sitting down and letting all our raw ideas flow free. But as Dr. Seuss once said, “the writer who breeds more words than [he or she] needs is making a chore for the reader who reads.” Genius is very much about the pain of the creative process, how we often have to let go of those words we hold so dear and how pretty much no one makes a living off of rough drafts.
Say what you will about their politics and views, but the Obamas’ love was made for movie screens. Southside With You is not a political-driven narrative. It quite simply is a walk-and-talk feature that follows a young Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) and Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) as they fall for each other during their first date.
The transition from childhood to adulthood, where boys become men and girls become women, is undoubtedly a significant stepping stone in everyone’s life. However, the age at which it happens and how you chose to celebrate the rite of passage entirely depends on where you live and what culture you grow up in.
It happens: a movie that’s not all bad gets eaten alive. We saw it happen with this year’s Alice Through the Looking Glass and more recently with Suicide Squad. Not to say these movies don’t have their buckets of problems, but in no way should they be deemed a bad apple.
It’s been a big year for Simon Helberg. His beloved character Howard Wolowitz is on his way to becoming a father in the upcoming season of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory.
High star ratings such as those handed out to this film and Pete’s Dragon are not handed out lightly, unless the films really kick up the dust. It just so happens to be an exceptionally strong weekend at the movies, and Hell or High Water is certainly film worth dancing over.
Today, we’re often told, “Go to college” and everything will be better. While it definitely does help, I personally didn’t expect to be where I was a year after graduating.
Barely a year ago, Warner Bros. unveiled the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the duel of the century that was supposed to kickstart DC Comics’ drive toward critical and box office success. But as many fans witnessed back in March, the brawl of Bats and Supes backfired and left little hope for a shining DC future.
One of the biggest complaints you’ll find in comment sections across media is how Hollywood seems to have forgotten how to make original films. We may get the occasional Ex Machina or Birdman to stir the pot, but the entertainment business thinks in decimals and dollars.
Stranger Things, Netflix’s latest foray into original programming, is one of its most impressive series thus far. The story takes place in the 1980s in a small town in Indiana, where everyone knows each other. After a peculiar incident involving the disappearance of a young boy (Noah Schnapp), a chain of mysterious events tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community.
