Guardians Still Rule The Galaxy and The B.O.


Love this poster, check out where Baby Groot is hanging out. Cool idea. One more week after F8 and Beauty break the all time world wide box office then a new radio show.

Update:
Mini review: Snatched: 1 out of 5. Monkeys in a coma can write better material. There was a slight hint of humour and I love Goldie Hawn. And I like Amy in Trainwreckt. But this failed the ladies big time. Check out Goldie in Speilberg's Sugerland Express, he first major film release. Goldie here does drama, that's how talented she is that she can do both comedy and drama. Snatched was a total failure. Next time hire the monkeys for a better film.

The King is dead. Long live the king. And say goodbye to a franchise that will never happened. That's what they wanted. Well that went south, that and $175M down the tubes.So much for Director Ritchie career?  And Amy needs Trainwreck 2. Wow what a wipeout. Again the Guardians have no competition. Aliens? Again the rumour is they only show up near the end? Really? And Pirate Depp? This was going to be an after thought and it's the biggest talk in Hollywood now. Man did that escalate fast, lol.

Pirates hacking Pirates. Oh man the irony. While Pirates has a built in fan base and will do good regardless, lets face it. The ones who are going to see this on bootleg are the curious ones who either gave up on the franchise, does anyone remember the last one? or weren't going to rush to see this to begin with. Like Orange is the New Black with the first few episodes back. You got the curious who can't wait for this in June or you have the binge watchers who can wait for June just to knock off a whole season in one weekend. So everyone is crying wolf but does it really matterat the end?

This was from last week. What is old is new. And an article I'm sure Depp would love to hve people forget. Shame since some of the titles coming out in the future sound better than the ones he did in the past. But never mind he needed better managers, he needed better script readers to help him go thru some of these bad scripts. Funny tho, can it get any worse?

Um let me guess, the rangers don't show up until at the 90 minute point? And then only for 20 minutes worth of action? Then they wonder why it's performing poor all over. Let's face it, 20 years to late and Transformers has taken all the momentum out of this and even their are starting toout welcome themselves.

Last but not least from today's happy go lucky blog (sarcasm folks) here's a cool article predicting this summers box office. While I did say we are taking a break and what are we missing anyways but sequels, remakes etc.y it was a coincidence since I had to leave town for important family business.
Yws we got renewed for the summer and will be back in July for our 28 years on the air. Hopefully and Originals like Wonder Woman will get things going when we go back live.

Huge Guardians Box Office

We are taking a break, I mean what are we missing, Alien, Pirates and Transformer sequels?
We should be back in July for our 28th year and a new radio show soon, probably next week.
PS: Bonus section: Major franchises going to tv/cable.

Now that the top 2 films of the summer are raking up big bucks, it's time for the rest of the slaughter to take place. Both Amy and the King are not even going to clear $20M this weekend. Wipeout.
Mix reviews for Aliens and are people getting tired of Depps business affairs. That article coming in the next blog after this weekend.

Pretty huge opening. And there's no hard competition coming down the pike besides more sequels aka Aliens and Pirates. Again the big question where is this going to land when all said and done. F8 is heading to the top 10 all time and would have been the bi one for the year if it wasn't for that 800 lb beast in the room. See next link.
Mini Review: 3 out of 5. Kind of disappointed. Bit too long with that father and son angle. Too much with the girls fighting back and forth. Never liked the blue guy and not enough Groot. Racoon and Dax rock. But still a lot of action and great SFX. First one is still better.

Unbelievable. One of the most boring Disney flicks of all time and this made the all time Wide World top 10. And it's ready to take out Frozen, the most overrated Disney flick, as the biggest money maker for the house of mouse. This only proves the dumbing of audiences with all the marketing hype that these two are the biggest winners. Sad very sad.

I put this on the blog so you can check out the comments below the article. And I have to agree with most on that 1. Prometheus sucked 2. Who cares about the engineers 3. Bring back Sigorney and do Blomkamp's vision. 4. I do ague about the lead female role. Aliens set the standard for females kicking ass and Signorney got an Oscar nod for it. So more females kicking ass. Besides guys are the bait in this franchise and that's what makes it all fun. Especially if they're dumb scientists who stick their nose in where it doesn't belong like in Prometheus. I mean DUMB!
I am curious about this one but don't expect a major 5 from me.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/hellboy-3-is-a-reboot-real-potential-behind-movie-1001868
You know original Hellboy Ron Pearlman is piss off as hell. He's been pushing for this for the longest and now he's been completely written off. If anyone's to blame is Del Toro himself. Notice the pattern? He keeps asking for these big budgets aka Pacific Rim and they take the projects away from him. Hellboy 3 would have had a huge budget and not enough of an audience to back it up even tho the second one did damn good, one that I myself went and brought the blu-ray. Keeper! Let's see how this reboot works. Everyone involved with the new one just brings me one big yawn.

Waste of a video. Talk about being bored while promoting your movie. These guys look like they want to be anywhere but here. Expecially Gosling who looks like if he forgot to take the turkey out of the oven or not.
With big paychecks  they should look involved or if not, your actors! Act involved. Wow what a waste and you learn nothing about the movie.

http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/trailers/846109-dr-jekyll-vs-tom-cruise-fight-teased-in-the-mummy-featurette#/slide/1
Is it me or does Cruise look miscast in this one. And this whole premise sounds great but it looks like something is going to get lost in the translation. If it weren't for this scene and Crowe as the mad doctor I might have skip this one. Crap I can't, gotta review it for the show. why, Why, WHY?..me.

Bonus Section: Franchises heading to the big tv/cable screen.

They have to keep it R like Archer and keep it on the edge. At least it didn't go to Disney, lol.
http://www.comingsoon.net/tv/news/846593-live-action-judge-dredd-tv-series-in-development#/slide/1
There is a huge cult following for Dredd even if it states the movie bomb, it does have a audience.
* It looks like once Bryan Singer announced the X-Men tv series now many studios are going that route. And I'm for it. It is a mish mash aka Agents of Shield which sucks and Flash and Supergirl nailing it. And it avoids having a Fantastic Four blowout movie franchise with that whole thing being in limbo. So simple and they still can't get it right.
