  1. Past hour
  2. Susan Rovner Talks Peacock Plans, Post-Kardashians E! and Future of “Broken” Golden Globes – The Hollywood Reporter
  3. The Idiots A lovely stroll down memory lane to a time when Boston wasn't the most insufferable sports city in the world (The Hoodie can go rot in hell) 8/10
  4. Expected after Sony moved Escape Room 2 to that spot. With the backlog of movies awaiting release still being pretty high we're likely gonna see more moves like this and the Infinite announcement earlier.
  5. I feel like Paramount is just hoping that everyone who wanted to see A Quiet Place 2 still does and will accept whatever it makes. After all, it was less than 10 days from opening and had spent pretty much the entire marketing budget when the world went into lockdown mode.
  6. Eminem-equse A look into a more minor tale in the rapper's highly publicized private life covers the case. Although more information about the political party he was dealing with would have been nice 7.25/10
  7. Flightless bird. The documentary about the boring 737 max plane crashes paint a bleak picture on how corporate greed can ruin the lives of everyday citizens. 9/10 Green arrow 2 The Emerald Archer is back but is put in a poor man's version of the Batman: Court of Owls storyline. Not even Matt Damon can raise this above the first film 5.5/10 Static Shock 2 This is some great cape work. By minimizing the scope and focusing on Virgil growth and Maureen mental health as well as her new powers, we get a strong film that gives great character moments without skimping on the set pieces 8/10
  8. MAY SCHEDULE [Note: All the of background info videos contain SPOILERS, if you haven't seen the movie.] MILDRED PIERCE WEDNESDAY MAY 12 Happy Belated Mother's Day! Don't let this being classified as a "women's picture" fool you, based on a story by James M. Cain (aka the author of Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice), this is stylish noir about family, greed, and murder. No joke, I think Veda might be the greatest screen villain of all time. Also for some extra drama: MALTESE FALCON SATURDAY MAY 15 "Uh... It's the stuff that dreams are made of." CONAN THE BARBARIAN WEDNESDAY MAY 19 ARNOLD! Experience the cheesy terrible movie that launched ARNOLD into movie stardom. ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK SATURDAY MAY 22 Follow Snake (Kurt Russell) on a suicide mission to save the President Of the United States from the cyberpunk, authoritarian, nightmare dystopia that's New York City in John Carpenter's cult classic. NIGHT AT THE OPERA WEDNESDAY MAY 26 A Marx Brothers classic. (I couldn't find one on Night At The Opera, but this is a good overview of their work.) BULLITT SATURDAY MAY 29 So in honor of me FINALLY getting my Mustang, we're gonna watch the greatest film car chase of all time (Are those fighting words? Has Ronan and The Italian Job just entered the chat?) It's also a pretty good 1970s cop drama starting Steven McQueen in his most iconic role.
  9. Today
  10. A problem that I don’t see talked about enough anywhere are Covid Long Haulers. We know that it affects kids too, and symptoms can persist for months. There have been reports of active child athletes that suddenly can’t practice their sport because of fatigue. Headaches, brain fog, chest pains can persist for months after. There really aren’t super good studies I’ve been able to find, but even all the anecdotal evidence is concerning. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/covid-long-haulers-long-term-effects-of-covid19
  11. Some valid criticism. The hardest thing with this movie is that things that are talked about or which occur don't become really relevant until later on, but it's necessary to introduce the concepts now.

At the time the plan was to re-open on January 7. Yet, tomorrow is May 7 and cinemas are still closed. Greece is slowly and steadily descending into authoritarianism and totalitarianism. For obvious reasons, I was not interested in reporting on the box office at all during October and there has been no box-office news since. However, for completeness, I have decided to add the last four weekends before lockdown, since I had missed them in October. There is nothing really to comment on about individual movies. 'Scoob!' managed four first-place finishes in a row – whether that's an achievement in these times is for you to judge. The race between 'Scoob!' and 'Greenland' was mildly interesting to observe since they closely followed each other. This post will be followed with another featuring 2020's Top 10 list – the most depressing Top 10 list you'll ever see, for sure...
  13. Well i seem to remember chicken pox parties being a thing back in the day. Probably wasn't the safest but it was common. In the UK there is still no confirmation that children will even be offered a vaccine given the extreme low risk. I guess the UK having more adults willing to take the jab will allow the vaccines to be more effective even if children are not offered any. I guess we will just have to wait but it seems baccinated kids is low on the governments priority right now
  14. Wrath of Man's sales look dreadful at my theater tonight. I question if a 5M opening is even possible. UNHINGED was doing better ffs

  17. Seem like they know they can't compete in streaming platform, they going full for theater. Now they give 45days window for AQP2 , I hope they give 60days when normalcy fully resume
  18. But first you have to prove that Covid-19 is only as dangerous as other normal corona virus. They may need only one shot, and i agree 2nd shot could be too much for this age group but asking them to walk into virus world unprepared is a bit too risky.
  19. Luckily they haven't the lifted the embargo that time. If not, they will waste another source of buzz. There was some early reaction claiming the sequel is very good and worth the sequel development. They should re-post all these.
  20. http://www.kinometro.ru/news/show/name/russian_bo_april2021_2046 April 2021 in Russia and CIS 3.227 mil rub/42.075 mil $ (-20 % compared to March 2021) (-15 % compared to April 2019) 11.529 mil tickets (-23 % compared to March 2021) (-28 % compared to April 2019)
  21. I like how they emphasis "In theater". But the buzz is remain low so far and not sure how paramount can restart its buzz all over again. Also, as a major studio like paramount, the studio has been very low profile throughout this season, how can they survived this quiet place for so long?
  22. I imagine everyone who saw this in early March last year before its release later that month was pulled is still under embargo.
