    Box Office Theory's Most Anticipated Films

    1. The Mustang (alright, Mustang Gang! Let's keep this train rolling until the film is closed for the list!) 2. Hotel Mumbai 3. Dumbo 4. The Best of Enemies 5. Missing Link 6. Breakthrough 7. The White Crow 8. Avengers: Endgame 9. Pokemon: Detective Pikachu 10. Tolkien
  2. Thanks man! I agree with all of these points! The Daniel Henney train continues chugging along!
  3. So the March film I haven't read yet is Artifacts: Rise of the Crest. Given that it's 11:00 PM where I am, I've decided to read it tomorrow. My brain is going into shut-off mode. But I'll have my spotlight(s) and reviews tomorrow, for sure.
  4. Why, hello there! You'd stumbled upon a humble little place where the latest movies are reviewed! If you're searching for a thorough, introspective, and considerate review for your movie, well, you've come to the right place! Here's a guide to my rating system: 10 - Exceptional This score is given rarely and indicates a one of a kind cinematic experience that must be seen in theaters. 9 - Adept This is a film that, by all intents and purposes, not only accomplishes what it sets out to do, but is even able to expand upon its initial vision in unique ways. 8 - Proficient Fans of this film's genre will certainly have a good time, though, perhaps, a certain pizzazz was left on the cutting room floor. 7- Fine A film that, while technically sound, often fails to offer any new or fresh cinematic ideas. 6 - Mediocre A film which leaves many things to be desired from both its technical and storytelling aspects -- though fans would surely still resonate with a film such as this. 5 - Hollow The shell of a better film which fails to hold within itself the ghost of a more efficient product. 4 - Poor It is evident that certain elements of the film fail to come together to make a coherent whole. 3 - Unsatisfactory The talent and workers involved in this film did not perform the jobs that were asked of them by the studios who hired them. 2 - Incompetent It's not that the talent and workers didn't do their jobs. It's that they couldn't. 1 - Traitorous The act of seeing or watching a film with this score ought to be considered sacrilege against the countless filmmakers in history who fought tooth and nail to ensure the prosperous cinema we have today. I am looking forward to reviewing the films of Y5 as the months go by! Here's hoping I'm able to give out many high scores this year! Yours Truly, The Slammy Slamster
  5. I agree with that! That's what I did with all my other stories that I was writing on Word, but the word count made me panic; I totally could've made that fix, though... That'y my bad. I'll keep this in mind for the future!
  6. This review makes a lot of sense to me! I basically adapted the source material with no regard to its narrative flaws, and I could've definitely taken more creative liberties with the story than I did, so that's on me. I also could've emphasized dialogue a little less, though, as I believed the dialogue was an integral part of the source material, I allowed myself to be stubborn. But I'll use this as a learning experience for sure! I can only get better from here!
  7. Understood; I'll decrease the amount of dialogue in my subsequent projects. Thank you!
  8. This film is better off going wide anyway. It's not the type of film that would typically be supported by a limited opening, in my opinion. And the month of March has been dry as it is. Neon knows they're on a roll, that there deal with Hulu is a lifeline, that the film's trailer is extremely well made, and that we've just now seen Focus Features' Greta make over $10M in this dry of a time-frame. A film with as big of stars as Matthew McConaughey should be given a chance to be seen, anyway. Who's willing to believe this can gross more than Serenity's total? I sure am.
  9. Snowpiercer, though it was the fault of Weinstein rather than the movie-going public.
  10. The only reason I'm in favor of this film being made is because I remember all the times when I was little and Dora was on TV, and, in retrospect, I think Dora was a great, wholesome role model for kids. She was also a symbol of diversity before the discussion became widespread. So regardless of the film's quality, I think the film will ultimately prove to be a harmless affair. Can't wait to see the trailer; I also can't wait to see how they inplement the "swiper no swiping" subplot.
  11. Thank you man! I'm really glad you enjoyed it! I'll be striving to write more films that are around the same scale as this! I'm fully onboard the Daniel Henney train, now!

    CAYOM Y5 - Discussion Thread

    So I think I'll have a busy day tomorrow (Thursday), so I might hold off of my March reviews until Friday. Never say never, though, because, by circumstance, I only need to review four of them. (Though Epsilon is one of the biggest films in length; but still.)
  13. I wanna read all twelve of them! Your originals sound creative and your franchise films are exciting!

    That would help me a lot, actually! Having comparisons would be pretty helpful.

    CAYOM Y5 - Discussion Thread

    @Xillix Hey, I need to ask you something. I just remembered that I forgot to change most of the actors in the synopsis of my film Sabrina. Would it be okay if I went in made that edit? The Submission thread isn't locked yet.
  18. FEBRUARY REVIEWS Broadway Selects: Hello, Dolly! Broadway has chosen an excellent production to give moviegoers a chance to witness--a perennial classic, no less. While the necessity of a Broadway production for the silver screen can be called into question, fans of theatre would be remiss to skip this. 8/10 Next Vegas The film effectively misuses its science fiction moniker by devolving into a run-of-the-mill crime thriller. This is a film which has been seen before. 5/10 Medusa A deftly animated production filled with memorable characters and set-pieces, one that's destined to please many generations of animaniacs. It's most pressing flaw: its narrative is taken too seriously for its own good. 8.5/10 (*This was very close to being February's spotlighted film.*) Perfect Match A well-cast action thriller (both in the acting sense and directing sense), in the guise of a romantic film, that is sure to entice audiences of many different tastes. However, the film's tone feels a touch tamer than what it aspires be--which can be seen as both an asset and a detraction. 8/10 The Poet The film's ending throws the tone of the film into question, causing the film as a whole to feel rather incoherent. 4.75/10 ByteRealm This is a film which attempts to tell the story of two worlds. It is an aesthetic and technical masterclass, though it suffers from an overemphasize on one of its worlds over the other. 7.75/10
