“The Lego Movie Part 2,” Fun For All

HOLLYWOOD—“Everything is Awesome,” it was the song that got stuck in everyone’s head during the 2014 release of the animated flick “The Lego Movie.” There was something about that flick that had charm, hilarity and just pure entertainment value for both kids and adults. Fast-forward to 2019, and we finally have the sequel, after seeing the “The Lego Batman Movie”...

“Lego Movie 2” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—It was an interesting weekend at the box-office, and not as explosive as I expected it to be. Why? I totally forgot the sequel, “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” was released in theaters. I mean its predecessor was a massive hit earning close to $70 million in 2014. Too bad the sequel fell short of that goal. “The...

“Glass” Wins Box-Office For Third Weekend

HOLLYWOOD—It was a slow weekend at the box and I mean a really slow weekend at the box-office. Well, what did you expect it was Super Bowl weekend America! For the third consecutive weekend, the thriller “Glass” remained in the top spot $9.5 million. After 3 weeks in theaters, “Glass” has earned close to $90 million. I expect the...

“Glass” Is Slightly Underwhelming

HOLLYWOOD—Never in a million years did I expect while watching the psychological thriller and must-see film “Split” that it was a sequel to M. Night Shyamalan’s 2000 film “Unbreakable.” That twist at the end was glorious and a smart reveal, but it was not as great as that twist in “The Sixth Sense.” Yes, the writer and director has...

“Black Panther” Wins Big At SAG Awards

HOLLYWOOD—Oscar nominations came out this past week, but that will unlikely have little impact on the winners for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The SAG Awards are a major predictor of where Oscar could be headed. Why is this interesting? There were people nominated for Oscar who were not nominated for a SAG Award. In addition, some people nominated...

“Glass” Wins Box-Office, “Serenity” Bombs

HOLLYWOOD—I did not suspect the new arrivals in theaters, “The Kid Who Would Become King” or “Serenity” to dethrone last week’s box-office champion “Glass” and I was not wrong.
