BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
We have two movies on the docket this weekm as the summer starts to ramp into season. This time around we’ve got a visit to a futuristic world of tomorrow and another go around with the poltergeist.
On behalf of the whole staff of This Rotten Week (me), we’d like to extend a big Happy Mother’s Day to everyone out there it applies to. And to honor those mothers out there, I see no more fitting tribute than to talk about a Mad Max remake and a Pitch Perfect sequel. Happy Mother’s Day!
While we are coming off a big weekend that saw Hollywood finally deliver The Avengers: Age of Ultron to the big screen, it looks like we may be back to an uninspiring slate for the film world. There’s only one movie on the docket, offering a special ride along with Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara.
There’s only one movie on the docket this week, but it’s a big one. It finally feels like this is the official beginning of summer, as Ultron makes his way to theaters.
We have a pretty slow week ahead, with only two movies hitting the big screen. Both films look safe and geared toward the family or romantic crowds. We’ve got a little boy with some cool powers, and a woman who doesn’t age.
There are three movies hitting theaters this weekend, and weirdly enough there’s a little something for everybody - at least if you are a younger member of the movie-going audience. It actually might be tough for adults to get too excited for this lineup, as we have the return of Paul Blart, social media killing people, and cute monkeys flying around the screen.
Last time around we had the Furious boys and girls taking another fast ride through their ridiculous world – but this week we get the longest ride, a much different story that doesn’t have me nearly as excited.
We only have one movie on the docket this week, but it’s a big enough release to warrant it. Dominic Toretto and his gang of racers are back a frolic through along the open road (and wherever else something on four wheels can go). Furious 7 is ready for lift off.
The spring movie season is continuing on in dribs and drabs in 2015, as it’s been some time since there’s been anything for us to get too worked up over. It’s that post-Oscars, pre-summer lull when studios throw out a bunch of mediocrity in the hopes that something sticks. This week we get hard on the way home.
Another light week for movies with two pretty rough flicks hitting the screen. These are the post Oscar, pre-Spring doldrums that leave a great deal to be desired. This week will do little do shake the dust off. We’ve got Penn going hitman and Woodley getting Divergent.
This Rotten Week: Predicting Chappie, Unfinished Business and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Reviews
Suffering from a little Oscar hangover? Getting through the movie awards season have you tired? Too bad! The movies just keep on coming, and this week is no different. And in a few days we’ll be meeting Chappie, visit an exotic hotel and take care of some unfinished business.
The Academy Awards are on tonight. In honor of this great Sunday we bring you two movies that have absolutely no chance of ever being mentioned in the same sentence as the Oscars. It’s time to get in focus with The Lazarus Effect.
There are three movies on the docket this week, with some old friends returning for another trip with a hot tub, a girl getting a makeover, and a group of runners, um, running.
There are only two movies coming out in wide release this week, but there is most definitely plenty to talk about here. A certain subset of our culture is getting Harry Potter/Star Wars fanboy/girl-style prepare to see Julian Gray get his freak on, and others will be recruited to join a Secret Service.
There are three new movies set to make their way to cinemas this week, and all three look very dumb - though only two did that unintentionally.
Another week of very uninspiring major releases. This has been a dull winter. Nothing on this docket suggests we are pulling out of the cinematic doldrums with time travel, lofts and Kevin Costner hitting the screen.
This week we have a busy one when it comes to new releases, but it appears a quantity-over-quality type of slate. Let’s see what we’ve got going with boys next door, strange magic and a dude named Mortdecai.
The winter movie season is picking up pace with three films hitting U.S. screens this week. We’ve got hackers, best men for hire and stranded bears.
The year 2015 is certainly starting off slow, as we only have one movie on the docket this week. But if projected death counts for a flick is your metric for cinematic success, then, my friend, you are in luck. A certain agent is back to find someone and kill everyone in his path on the way. Some poor scrub is getting Taken again.
The movie studios are content to kind of just sleep this week off, having gone all out leading into the Christmas week. We’ve only got one flick on the docket and it in involves the words "Angel" and "Death" so you know it’s going to be good.
