“Scream” Recap: ‘Betrayed’

HOLLYWOOD—Last week on “Scream” the stage was set for a string of betrayals, while allies became enemies, and enemies became friends. This week’s episode ‘Betrayed,’ saw the killer up the ante in his vendetta against Emma and the residents of Lakewood. Emma and Kiernan celebrated their newfound relationship. For her to be someone that is the heroine, she sure...

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—Tom Cruise proved that he is still capable of opening a movie to big bucks as “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” claimed the top spot at the box-office. The fifth installment in the franchise earned $56 million in its debut weekend. Nabbing second place was the raunchy comedy “Vacation” with just under $15.9 over the weekend, but nearly $21 million...

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” Fun Times

HOLLYWOOD—Okay, when it comes to action stars plenty of people think of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vin Diesel, Sylvester Stallone, and other icons from the 80s. With all due respect, when I want to see a great action flick, I can always count on Tom Cruise to deliver. Cruise’s latest project “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” takes the audience on another...

“Pixels,” Memories Of Nostalgia

HOLLYWOOD—For those who grew up during the '80s, you are well aware it’s a time frame unlike any other. The latest flick to attempt to recapture that magic is the fantasy-action adventure “Pixels.” Yes, the title for the flick is somewhat interesting, but it is indeed about pixels and pixilation to say the least. The film revolves around a...

“ Ant-Man ” Continues To Remain On Top

Ant Man
HOLLYWOOD—I was almost certain this past weekend would be an interesting battle at the box-office, but was I ever wrong. With a bevy of new films like “Paper Towns,” “Pixels,” “The Vatican Tapes” and “Southpaw” opening at multiplexes, there would be a shift at who reigned supreme, but it was “Ant-Man” who stayed on top. The marvel superhero nabbed first...

“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...

“Minions” Pint-Sized Fun With Laughs

HOLLYWOOD—They were the small, yellow creatures that were stars in the “Despicable Me” and “Despicable Me 2” flicks, so it was no surprise that the characters would soon get their own spin-off in “Minions.” The flick is a prequel and gives a bit of backstory behind the funny yellow friends. From the beginning of their existence, their primary goal was...

“Ant-Man” Wins Box-Office

HOLLYWOOD—Well, he might be small, but he delivered a big punch to the box-office. Superhero “Ant-Man,” dominated the box-office this weekend taking in a little over $58 million. Quite disappointed as I considered “Ant-Man” to be a fun-ride. Perhaps word of mouth buzz could help the flick in coming weeks. Landing in second place was last week’s champ “Minions” which...

“Ant-Man” Is Pint-Sized Fun

HOLLYWOOD—There is something about the hero in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” that stands out. No, it’s not just the fact that our hero is pint-sized. When it first came to fruition that Marvel was bringing the comic book favorite to the big screen I slightly grimaced. Not many people are aware of this superhero compared to those like X-Men, Captain America,...

“The Gallows” Is Scary As Hell

HOLLYWOOD—Horror in Hollywood is not easily accomplished. To deliver the thrills seriously, it involves a villain that is frightening, characters we care about and a narrative that sutures you right into the movie. I’ll admit, I’m not a fan of the found footage flick because it has been butchered to death, but the “The Gallows” delivers a bevy of...
