Private Screening Movie Review: ‘The Mandela Effect’

I just completed an early screening of The Mandela Effect and I have to say folks, I think you’re going to love this one. Most of you know that I’m already slightly interested in the Mandela Effect itself, having penned several articles on the subject in the past couple of years. However, I also happen…

May Movie Preview: Gotta Watch ’em All

In all likelihood the highest grossing movie of May will be Avengers: Endgame, which of course was released in April. But don’t let that distract you from the gems that are among the May movie list. It’s a big list. There’s definitely a “diamond in the rough” joke to be made here with Aladdin coming…

Sky-high budgets, epic productions, and all-star casts are slated to explode in theaters this year.

March Movie Preview: Batman v Superman v Cloverfield v Disney

I had said February was a pretty decent month at the movies, but nobody saw Deadpool breaking through as such a massive hit. I don’t know if there are any March movies that will be as surprising, but there are some probable hits on this list. There’s the third film in a YA dystopian series,…

September movie preview: the horror! …of post summer movies

September Movie Preview: The Horror! …of Post Summer Movies

So, August didn’t really go as planned. Straight Outta Compton did incredibly well, but the month’s comic book entry (Fantastic Four) absolutely bombed. Plus, Zac Efron’s We are Your Friends had one of the worst opening weekend’s in cinematic history. Ouch! Well, I bet September movies are going to bounce back, right? Well, at first…

August movie preview: moderately “fantastic”

August Movie Preview: Moderately “Fantastic”

The script for July at the box office was a predictable one. Marvel conquered, critics were disappointed with Adam Sandler, and children dragged their parents out in big numbers to see the animated faire of the moment, Minions. Well August movies aren’t quite so easy to crack. The number of big blockbusters is less than…

July movie preview: sequels making fireworks

July Movie Preview: Sequels Making Fireworks

If you happen to have any money left after seeing Jurassic World over and over in June, there is a solid slate of July movies to add to your summer checklist. I doubt any of them will come close to the Indominus Rex sized haul of Jurassic, but we have sequels a plenty. So go…

June Movie Preview: The Park is Open and so Are Cinemas

If you sat out the month of May at the movie theater, you missed a bunch of fun summer movies that delivered on their promises for action, comedy, and plenty of explosions. But it’s okay. Most of those titles are still out for you to enjoy. In the meantime, we have a whole new month…

May Movie Preview: Marvel Owns May

May is the unofficial start to summer at the movie theater. With the major studios beginning to roll out their big budget tent-poles, it’s always a fun time. But even with all the varying titles, May is Marvel’s month. Since 2006, movies adapted from Marvel comics have been the top grossing movie of May six…

April movie preview: an easter egg hunt for good movies

April Movie Preview: An Easter Egg Hunt for Good Movies

In just one month’s time, we’ll be discussing all of the big movies that mark the beginning of blockbuster season at the cinema. But it would seem that April movies don’t quite have the same appeal. There are a few interesting looking titles mixed throughout, but it will be like an Easter egg hunt trying…

March movie preview: march your way to the theater

March Movie Preview: March Your Way to the Theater

Another month has come and gone. February had its fair share of good and bad movies, but March movies look quite promising. Even if they didn’t, here in the northeastern United States our main hobby at the moment is shoveling snow. So I’ll take seeing a mediocre movie over that option any day of the…

February movie preview: plan your valentine’s day accordingly

February Movie Preview: Plan Your Valentine’s Day Accordingly

So have you seen all the Oscar nominees yet? Well if you haven’t, you still have time. But the box office machine keeps rolling in February with a whole new slate of movies. We have stars like Channing Tatum and Will Smith. We have large-scale sci fi and fantasy titles. We even have movies that…

January movie preview: new year, new movies

January Movie Preview: New Year, New Movies

January at the box office tends to look like that Tupperware full of holiday leftovers in your fridge. There’s some good stuff, but it’s nothing compared to how good it was in December. The art house movies that will get some award show recognition are beginning to expand nationwide. There are also a few studio…

December movie preview:  a late start on the holiday movie season

December Movie Preview: A Late Start on the Holiday Movie Season

Don’t let the title of this post fool you, when I say holiday movie season, I mean big studio blockbusters and critically acclaimed titles that may appear on the award show ballots. As for actual holiday themed movies, there are none. Not one single Christmas cartoon or rom-com will reach a wide audience this year….
