Live on MNN this Saturday will be a repeat: Kong Skull Island for next months BR release.
47 Meters Down: 3 out of 5.Another trap by shark movie? If they can keep up with the thrills and tension on whats goin to happen why not. If you like The Shallows you'll like this one.
The Mummy: 2 out of 5. 6 writers ?! That explains everything. Main problem it tried to hard with eveything. Moved fast, lots of action, had some funny parts and nothing original to deliver:
MI meets Indy Jones meets American Werewolf meets Walking Dead meets...etc etc etc.
Baywatch: 1 out of 5: Ok I admit it. Waited until someone else picked up the tab to see this.
Such a bad 21 Jump Street wannabe. Just the one liners The Rock calls Zack, that's it.
With so much on the table and studios banking on franchises, of course top actors can be control freaks. But this article states one major thing. Movies stars can't bank it at the Box Office. It doesn't matter who's behind the mask (who's the new Spiderman, who cares) and little minions and animated Cars there're all sweating it. Anyways Cruise can kiss this goodbye. The big three are around the corner: Cars, Minion, Transformers. Here's the big thing: Can Wonder Woman hold her own in the top 5. July 5 will say it all.
My money is on Minions. I enjoy the whole franchise. Cars on the other hand? the first one was a total bore. I actually liked the second one only because it went to different countries. So don't expect a great review on Cars 3. You've been warned......BANANAAAAAAAA!
Great article on how many films are being release featuring female directors. It's about time and long overdue. Boo Hoo Hoo they're breaking up the boys club. Bring it on ladies...!
Why? The last one didn't break any records, BR sales tanked and Logan put that to shame. Guess Fox doesn't have a choice but to over pay everyone for another been there done story about Pheonix. With so many sotries to tell and so many X-Men in the catalog.... never mind, wasting my breath here.
No shit. Now that Disney is pulling the strings on Sony of course this would make sense. Another studio that doesn't have a choice. These suits just need to give in to Marvel/Disney already. Cause I'm really getting tired of repeating myself.
So Cruise's Mummy got it's ass kicked this weekend by Wonder Woman. Man that's gotta hurt, lol. Hence the bragging of $52M in China.Good opening but will it continue for the next weekend or burn out fast? While it's doing good everywhere else and will make a profit, already a very nervous Universal is going ahead with Bride of Frankenstein but being very careful with that budget. And if that tanks so much for the franchise.
In the meantime we WW fans are waiting for Director Jenkins to sign the bottom line. No matter her demands, salary and all, she deserves it. Why DC didn't signed her up for the sequel were being too cautious. Remember, Michelle MacLaren (Director of several episodes on Breaking Bad, X-Files, Games of Thrones and the up coming HBO The Deuce in which she directed me in the pilot episode), was going to direct this but they were afraid of it being to dark hence why DC and her parted ways.
For me it was coming home after school back in the 1970's and seeing this in syndication. Ch. 11 PIX in NYC t be exact. Sure it was campy but funny and fun. Again a sense of humour which Marvel has gotten right (without the camp of course). That's what made Wonder Woman a better film than some of the other films. But not only West got in on the joke, he carried over his sense of comic style and humor to Family Guy. Yep he was my Batman and lets not forget the car. My fav of all time.
