“Little” Offers Minimal Laughs

HOLLYWOOD—Many of us probably wish we had the opportunity to turn back time and venture to a period when things weren’t so great for us; a time were we could correct a few wrongs and perhaps be seen in a new light. That might be the only element of familiarity that the comedy “Little” delivers to the audience. I...

Singleton has been hospitalized and placed into a medically induced coma after suffering a stroke on April 17.

Sequels, Remakes Rule Summer 2019

HOLLYWOOD—With the release of “Avengers: End Game” this past week, it’s safe to say the summer 2019 box-office is in full-force. I mean summer technically doesn’t start until June, but in Hollywood it has moved up earlier each year. There are plenty, and I mean plenty of familiar favorites, sequels and new content hitting the multiplex between May and...

“Avengers: End Game” Makes History

HOLLYWOOD—I suspected that the final chapter in the “Avengers” franchise would be big at the box-office, but not in a million years did I expect the film to earn over $300 million during its opening weekend in theaters. This is how you know a film is massive; it is sold out virtually at every theater the entire weekend, the...

“The Curse Of Llorona” Delivers The Scares

HOLLYWOOD—Delivering a good scare in the multiplex is no easy task to accomplish. With horror, most audiences are in tune with the ins-and-out of the genre; you know what to expect. However, I must say I had a frightful time watching the supernatural horror film, “The Curse of Llorona.” If you have been looking to be scared out of...

“Hellboy” Is A Dreadful Time

HOLLYWOOD—It is funny that one of my colleagues just discussed issues pertaining to the problem of remakes last week while discussing the movie “Pet Sematary.” While he didn’t give that film a glowing review, he didn’t completely pan it either. I wish I could be as generous with the comic book remake of “Hellboy,” but sometimes there are those...

“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...
