“The Curse Of Llorona” Spooks Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—Easter holiday weekend has been known to be a busy time at the multiplex, but not for 2019. I think that chaos is being held for that epic movie that hits theaters next week. We’ll talk more about that flick in a bit. Moviegoers were in for a great scare this weekend, as the supernatural horror flick, “The Curse...

“Dumbo” Lacks The Charm Of Original

HOLLYWOOD—Well another Disney classic has received a live-version adaptation. I will be honest I don’t understand the reasoning behind it because I’ve seen more mishaps than actual successes. The last being “Beauty and the Beast” which was entertaining, but did not come close to the 1991 original that received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. This time it’s...

Mass Firings Of Agents In Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD—Hollywood writers have begun a mass firing of agents as a result of major agencies hesitation to sign code-of-conduct letters that would prevent the illegal practice of packaging. Writers were asked by the Writers Guild of America to fire their agents and told its members Friday, April 12, to “Notify your agency in a written form letter that they...

“Shazam!” Wins Again At Box Office

HOLLYWOOD—This past weekend was slightly slower at the box-office than I expected. Why? Well last week’s champ saw a decent drop and the new releases in theaters didn’t come close to dethroning “Shazam!” from the top spot. “Shazam!” continued to dazzle audiences adding another $25 million during its second weekend in theaters. The superhero adventure is just under $5...

“Shazam!” Is Plenty Of Fun

HOLLYWOOD—Another month, another superhero flick has hit the big screen. This time it’s a character that fans of the comic book universe may or may not fully know about. However, DC seems to be earning its footing when doing battle against Marvel when it comes to superheroes. Yes, there have been misses and big ones, but there have been...

“Pet Sematary” Offers Classic Scares

HOLLYWOOD—I am not sure why this is such a trend in Hollywood, but it is driving me crazy. If you’re going to make a remake to a classic, the movie does not have to pay tribute to the original. If you’re going to remake a movie, the goal is to bring something fresh and exciting; not a copy and...

“Shazam” Dominates Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—With three new movies opening at the box-office it was a battle to win over moviegoers. Last week’s champion, “Dumbo” saw a massive drop from the top spot to #3. Winning audiences was the superhero flick, “Shazam” with an impressive $53.5 million haul. Since its release the movie has earned over $56 million at the domestic box-office. Not bad,...

“Dumbo” Victorious At The Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—Last weekend it was horror that dominated the box-office, but this weekend it was a remake of an animated classic that ruled supreme. The remake of the Disney classic “Dumbo” rose to the top spot of the box-office taking in $45 million during its opening weekend. Wow, that is a major disappointment not only because it’s the first live-action version...

“Us” Is Spine-Tingling Terror!

HOLLYWOOD—If you think you’ll walk out the theater and fully understand what you just witnessed after watching the psychological thriller “Us” by director Jordan Peele, think again. This is a film that requires multiple viewings to fully understand its message and even then you might not fully understand what is going on. You cannot enter the theater, expecting “Us” to...

Perry has resumed the role of Madea for his final appearance of the character in the latest comedy “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral.” The...
