“Scorch Trials” Tackles “Black Mass” At Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—It was an interesting battle at the box-office this weekend as new releases “The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Black Mass” went toe-to-toe with moviegoers. In the end, it was the sequel, “The Scorch Trials”, that rose to the top with $30.3 million. That is slightly below what its predecessor earned in 2014 with $32.5 million. With a decent...

“Finding Dory” Is Charming Fun

HOLLYWOOD—Can you believe it has been nearly 13 years since audiences were first introduced to a precocious little fish name Nemo in “Finding Nemo?” Well, after years of waiting the sequel to that box-office hit, “Finding Dory” has arrived in multiplexes. This time around instead of Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres) reuniting Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence) with his family,...

“Underworld: Blood Wars” Entertains To A Degree

HOLLYWOOD—I have never fully been a fan of the “Underworld” movies. While I love a good vampire flick, I just couldn’t find myself too immersed in the narrative. The last time we saw the character Selene (Kate Beckinsale) was in 2012’s “Underworld: Awakening” which saw the return of Beckinsale to the role she made famous in the early 2000s....

“Crimson Peak” Has Intrigue, But Few Scares

HOLLYWOOD—With Halloween right around the corner, movie lovers looking for thrills might venture to the multiplex to see the new thriller “Crimson Peak.” The flick directed by acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro definitely knows the genre all too well. One of his classics, in my opinion, is the much underrated science gone wrong thriller “Mimic," which starred Oscar-winner Mira...

“Hacksaw Ridge” Is Thoroughly Entertaining

HOLLYWOOD—There is one thing for anyone who appreciates cinema they can say about director Mel Gibson: he knows how to make a phenomenal film. Rather, its war epics like “Braveheart” and “The Patriot,” or perhaps his emotionally punishing “The Passion of the Christ,” Gibson has a knack for theatrics behind the camera. The director’s latest outing, “Hacksaw Ridge” is another...

Paxton was an Emmy-winning actor/producer who was currently working on the new TV series, “Training Day." "We are truly devastated at the passing of our friend Bill Paxton," said "Training Day"...

“Southpaw” Delivers Dramatic Uppercut

HOLLYWOOD—I don’t know what it is about boxing flicks that seem to be such crowd-pleasers. With “The Hurricane” and “The Fighter” audiences got the opportunity to root for an underdog with plenty of dramatic flair. The latest boxing flick to hit theaters, “Southpaw” takes a formula that has been used before to introduce audiences to the character of Billy...

“Star Wars” Actress Carrie Fisher Dies At 60

HOLLYWOOD—Carrie Fisher, the actress and writer that became internationally famous as Princess Leia in “Star Wars,” died on Tuesday, December 27 at the age of 60, a family spokesman said. The family’s spokesperson, Simon Hall, released a statement to People Magazine on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, 24, who currently stars on the FOX series "Scream Queens." “It is with a...

“No Escape,” A Guilty Pleasure

HOLLYWOOD—You might walk into the theater seeing the movie “No Escape” with very little expectations, but you will walk out the theater being thoroughly surprised by how entertaining the movie actually is. The film stars Owen Wilson as Jack Dwyer, who is vacationing with his wife Annie (Lake Bell) and their two daughters, Lucy and Beeze, in Southeast Asia. Jack...

“The Last Witch Hunter” Nothing To Fear

HOLLYWOOD—What can one say about “The Last Witch Hunter?” Well if you’re looking for a horror flick, this isn’t the one you should be choosing. In addition, the idea of hunting witches seems to be barely present in this movie. The action-flick, as I like to call it stars Vin Diesel as Kaulder, a witch-hunter who has been cursed with...
