‘Jurassic World’ Just Had The Biggest Opening Weekend Of All Time

Move over, Avengers. The reign of superheroes atop the all-time box office charts may be nearing its end, as a new film from one of the most legendary franchises of all time just rewrote the book on big opening weekends.

We knew Jurassic World would be huge, but I doubt anyone could have predicted the film would be as successful as it is after only three full days of release. According to Deadline, industry analysts say the third Jurassic Park sequel generated $209 million during its first weekend of release. Some estimates place the film’s opening slightly lower, …

Starring: Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Old 37′ Will Make You Second Guess Calling 9-1-1

Film: Old 37
Starring: Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley
Genre: Horror

Everyone knows who to call when roadside emergencies occur, but what if your worst nightmare was the person, or people, who responded to your cries for help? That idea serves as the central premise for Old 37, which swerves from a bloody death fest to a chilling collection of incredibly unnerving sequences and back again with ease.…

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Jurassic World’ Is Pure Summer Fun

Film: Jurassic World
Starring: Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt
Directed by: Colin Trevorrow

Jurassic World is a loud, fun, and exhilarating thrill ride that offers plenty of eye candy for moviegoers young and old. It’s a bit dumb, but that’s okay.

Separated from their parents for the holidays, two brothers (the talented Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson) are sent to visit their aunt at the world’s greatest theme park. Jurassic World, built on the same island that hosted the original Jurassic Park, is a state of the art attraction featuring twenty different dinosaurs. The island welcomes twenty-thousand people a …

Insidious-Chapter-3-review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Insidious: Chapter 3′ Is Worth The Price Of Admission

Film: Insidious: Chapter 3
Starring: Stepfanie Scott, Lin Shaye
Directed By: Leigh Whannell

Coming off a near-perfect sequel, the third Insidious film finds scares and plenty of story in new, yet familiar territory.

I assumed the second chapter of Insidious said all that needed to be said, but Chapter 3 has proven me wrong. Set years before the haunting of the Lambert’s home, the film follows a young woman (Stefanie Scott) who desperately wants to reconnect with her deceased mother, and the father (Dermot Mulroney) who is struggling to strengthen their strained relationship. It also reintroduces Elise (Lin Shaye), and …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Love And Mercy’ Is The Best Film Of 2015 So Far

Film: Love And Mercy
Starring: John Cusack, Paul Dano
Directed By: Bill Pohlad

A tale of one man told with two actors and more heart than any other film in theaters today, Love And Mercy may be the movie to beat in 2015.

You may think you know Brian Wilson, the iconic musical genius behind The Beach Boys, but the new film Love And Mercy reveals to us that even he struggles to know the man whose name is now synonymous with the history of American pop culture. He’s an enigma wrapped in flesh, both complex and shockingly simple, with …

‘The Martian’ Trailer: Matt Damon Is Left Behind On Mars

Ridley Scott is taking audiences to Mars for his latest film, and so far the results look far more promising than Prometheus.

Earlier today, June 8, the first trailer for The Martian found its way online. The film tells the story of a man (Matt Damon) who must fight for survival on Mars after being left behind when the astronauts he was traveling with were forced to leave the big red planet in a hurry. His desperation is palpable from the opening moments, but soon he finds the strength within to push forward. He eventually makes contact with the …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Entourage’ Is A Fitting Finale For HBO’s Bros

Film: Entourage
Starring: Adrien Grenier, Jeremy Piven
Directed by: Doug Ellin

The boys are back, and they’re picking up right where they left off.

Several years may have passed since the world said goodbye to Vince, E, Drama, Turtle, and Ari, but in the world of Entourage it has only been a few short months. Like the time jump that occurred between each of the show’s eight seasons, the jump between the series finale and the beginning of Doug Ellin’s long-awaited big screen continuation is only long enough for a new set of circumstances to arise. Vince is no longer …

Spy-Movie-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Spy’ Will Covertly Send You Into Uncontrollable Laughing Fits

Film: Spy
Directed by: Paul Feig
Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne

Director Paul Feig has been sneaking his way through genres with mixed results. Bridesmaids was a refreshing take on the female buddy comedy. The Heat produced a couple of laughs amidst a backdrop of a ’70s cop comedy. With Spy, Feig develops even more as a craftsman with one of the funniest spy spoofs in years. Melissa McCarthy is at the top of her game here, doling out one-liners at the same rate James Bond beds women. It’s the kind of comedy that doesn’t personify spy …
