BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
We’ve got two new releases coming up this week, and I haven’t the slightest idea how they’ll fare at the box office. Contrary to what you may have heard, one of them IS a bummer, but the other is showing early promise
It’s round six of our all-new feature CB Recommends. That means we’ve lasted twice as long as Hagler and Hearns, but we’re barely a fourth of the way to equaling the James Bond canon. There’s still plenty of prosthelytizing to be done, but one weekend at a time
What the hell happened? I just woke up from my bi-weekly Odinsleep, and apparently, the new crop of movies has already opened. It’s only Thursday. This Memorial Day weekend snuck up like a thief in the night, but I won’t complain since it allows me to take Monday off to grill burgers and re-watch Miracle On Ice highlights on Youtube
Admittedly, it would have been convenient to support the fourth installment of Pirates considering this also happens to be the fourth ever CB Recommends article, but credibility cannot be sacrificed for cheeky tie-in references. Instead, the writer of this column will attempt to find Apollo Creed and punch him in the face so hard that he dies in celebration of this momentous occasion
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, it’s an ungodly hour early on a Thursday morning which means I’m frantically punching the keyboard like Sean Connery’s yelling at me in Finding Forrester to finish this thing before CB Head Honcho Josh Tyler angrily replaces me
When you go, it’s imperative you make the most of it. That doesn’t always mean seeing the best movie or the one with the most buzz. You have the match the theatrical release to your goal for the night. CB Recommends is here to complete those mazes.
Not every indie flick people are raving about needs to be seen, and not every raunch comedy critics are slandering should be missed. You want to be in on the water cooler conversation about the newest blockbuster Monday morning, but you also want to see possible Academy Award nominees before your friends. It's a tightrope to cross, but we're here for you.
