New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 30 -- May 6

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/29/13 at 08:57 PM CT

"Silver Linings Playbook":
The most interesting and unusual wide-release film of 2012, one that netted a Best Actress Oscar for Jennifer Lawrence (and should have secured a best Supporting Actor nod for Robert DeNiro ... and it certainly was a better picture than "Argo," which was too by-the-book for our tastes). Coming off the successful mainstream awa...

Weekend Box Office: Pain and Gain Narrowly Tops Oblivion

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/28/13 at 11:05 PM CT

In another slow weekend, a violent comedy managed to snag the top spot away from Tom Cruise's latest film. But the biggest story isn't about what's playing in the states but rather what's making waves world-wide. Iron Man 3 made some massive waves by opening even bigger than The Avengers, which means that next week we should see some big fireworks. This week is another matter as the weekend was p...

2013 Summer Movie Preview

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/27/13 at 05:00 PM CT

With Iron Man 3 premiering in less than a week now, we are about to enter the anticipated summer movie season. And this year we have no shortage of films that look to bank some serious cash - and, according to my list - most of them aren't even sequels! But don't worry - there are plenty of those to go around too. Here is my personal list for the movies I think will be worth watching in the summe...

New in Theaters April 26: Pain and Gain, The Big Wedding, Mud

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/25/13 at 02:46 PM CT

Although Oblivion didn't open as highly as I was anticipating (nor was it as interesting as I'd hoped) it still made for one of the better opening for 2013. This week as April draws to a close with have a muscle-bound action/comedy, a straight-up comedy aimed at adults and limited release that has been getting a lot of buzz and should find a nice audience. Oblivion has a decent chance of keeping ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 23 -- April 29

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/22/13 at 10:54 PM CT


"Gangster Squad," set in Los Angeles in 1949, loosely tells the story of an elite L.A.P.D. crime-fighting unit set up to combat the imminent takeover of L.A.'s streets by notorious mobster Mickey Cohen, who was slowly but surely becoming the kingpin of the city's dope, vice and gambling dens. He had the politicians and the police in his pockets, and i...

Weekend Box Office: Oblivion Shoots to the Top

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/21/13 at 10:56 PM CT

Although the overall box office was down 19% from the same weekend last year, there was at least one person who wound up with a smile this weekend. April is not going to go down as one of the best on record, but thanks to some decent hits (and debuts) overall the month is at least on par with last year's total. This weekend only saw one new wide-release, but it managed to rise to the top - though...

My Take On the Best of the Best Movies Ever, Part Six - The Grand Finale

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/20/13 at 09:56 PM CT

I thank everyone who has been following along on this adventure - whether you agree with me or not. Now I've finally reached the end - the final five films. Out of every Academy Award-winning Best Picture film I have seen, these are the ones I feel are most worthy. This is where my personal and professional opinion come together. If you only watch five movies in your lifetime - these are certainl...

New in Theaters April 19: Oblivion, Lords of Salem

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/18/13 at 09:47 AM CT

Will this be the weekend that 2013 has its first blockbuster? That word is thrown around quite often and although Oz the Great and Powerful has made over $220 million the year still hasn't seen a monster opening - but all that could easily change this weekend. With big names and a budget to match, there is lot riding on this weekend jump-starting what looks to be a busy summer movie season. Will ...

New on DVD and Blu-ray Week of April 16 -- April 22

Harley Lond - wrote on 04/15/13 at 07:44 PM CT


"Django Unchained":
Quentin Tarantino's follow-up to his 2009 revisionist WWII action film "Inglourious Basterds" has all the director's trademark touches: an wild story line, lots of graphic violence, an overabundance of swear words, and an off-kilter view of human nature. It's a Western of epic proportions, running almost three hours to tell it's inv...

Weekend Box Office: 42 is a Grand Slam - Scary Movie 5 Runs on Franchise Fumes

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/14/13 at 11:13 PM CT

The box office continued to perform well as a baseball biopic hit it out of the park even if a warmed-over franchise was given a mostly cold shoulder. With everything taken into account, the overall box office was pretty much on par with the same weekend last year. And things should consider to look up after Oblivion had a nice $61.1 foreign opening - a number that bodes well for its domestic deb...

My Take On the Best of the Best Movies Ever, Part Five

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/13/13 at 07:29 AM CT

I've got the worst movies of all time out of the way - now it's time to turn to something with a bit more heft. Now we've reached the top 10 - out of all the Oscar-winning films I have seen up to this point in my life - these are the ones that mean the most. The ones that have had the biggest impact on me and on the cinematic landscape as a whole. If you haven't watched these films, I emphaticall...

New in Theaters April 12: 42, Scary Movie 5, To the Wonder

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/11/13 at 10:22 AM CT

Last week was one of the better weekends for 2013 thanks to the strong performance from Evil Dead and Jurassic Park 3D. This week we have two very different kinds of movies stepping up to the plate - one a biopic of a legendary sports figure the other is the latest entry in a long-running horror parody franchise. Will success follow or are we due for a lull this week until Tom Cruise comes to our...

My Take On the Worst of the Worst Movies Ever, Part 4: The Bitter End

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/10/13 at 12:07 AM CT

It has been quite the trip we've been on. While I have issues with some of the Razzie "winners" - others rightfully deserve their place as some of the worst movies of all time. But this final group - well, they're in a class all their own. They not only deserve their Razzie titles - they deserve to be buried in the desert along with all those old Atari E.T. games. Buried and forgotten. Alas, we h...

"Hyde Park on Hudson": After his recent outstanding performance in "Moonrise Kingdom," it's a shame that Bill Murray got stuck in this big-screen Hallmark Channel-esque movie playing a wheel chair-bound president FDR, set during a weekend in upstate New York in 1939. The film details what may or may not have been an actual affair between FDR and his di...

Weekend Box Office: Evil Reboot Knocks 'Em Dead - Jurassic Park Looks Good in 3D

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/07/13 at 10:55 PM CT

Everything old is new again - and it that's good news for Hollywood. It appears audiences are still happy too - as the overall box office was up 9% compared to same weekend last year - a good sign for a rather rough year - and it was thanks to two well-received new entries and some impressive holdovers as well. I admit - things turned out much better than I had expected. Hollywood is certainly on...

A Roger Ebert Tribute

Daniel Corleone - wrote on 04/06/13 at 04:58 AM CT

Movie critics for film lovers are either consistent, irritating or a combination of both. Not all of them are right depending on your taste of flicks, but none was more popular and respected as Mr. Two Thumbs up: the great Roger Ebert. I tend to browse his site to read his opinions on certain films, both old and new. Some I agree with, others not so much. Regardless of how I feel, he was a fascin...

New in Theaters April 5: Evil Dead, Jurassic Park 3D

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/04/13 at 09:20 AM CT

After a few bang-up weeks at the box office, we're heading into a quiet weekend with just two new wide- release openings (one of which is a 3D re-release). I have a feeling that the top movies are going to look much the same as last week and there won't be much excitement for audiences this time around. I have been proven wrong in the past - but I'm comfortable with my predictions.

My Take On the Best of the Best Movies Ever, Part Four

Chris Kavan - wrote on 04/03/13 at 01:06 PM CT

Here we go with part four of my epic Best Picture-winning Oscar countdown. This is the penultimate list: number 20 down to 11 - and we're really getting into the cream of the crop. These are the movies I would not only recommend but have gone so far as to shape the cinematic landscape. It's getting near the end, but it's not over yet. But we're really getting into the good stuff now - let's see i...

"American Masters Philip Roth: Unmasked" (2013) is a fascinating film that explores the life of the Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning novelist, one of the greatest living American writers. The tenor for the 90-minute documentary is set by the 80-year-old Roth at the outset: "In the coming years I have two great calamities to face: death and...
