The Rise of Shocker

The first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has been out for a little more than a week now giving us time to over analyze it and come up with all sorts of wild theories. Is Rey Kylo Ren's secret twin sister? Maybe she's a clone made from DNA collected from Luke Skywalker's cut off hand? Is she Lando's secret love child with Leia? And how does Emperor Palpatine factor into all of this? Is he really The Joker? See? Wild theories... The Movies That Make Us crew is back in full force...

That's Fair

Few movies have come out over the course of cinema history that have been able to inspire a generation the way that Rocky did when it hit theaters in 1976. Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, the film tells the rags to riches story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated but kind-hearted working-class boxer from the slums of Philadelphia who gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship. The film was made for just over $1 million, but it went on to earn $225 million globally. It was...

Captain Thundercrack!

Shazam! opened over the weekend to worldwide earnings of nearly $160 million (almost $57 million domestic) and a 92% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Not too shabby for a movie about a superhero that nobody knows anything about. Unless of course they are either a comic book fan or were alive in the 1940s when Fawcett Comics' Captain Marvel titles outsold even Superman books. Join Val, Tracy, Jake, and Zohner (who may never be given a microphone again) as they share their thoughts on DC's latest...

The Trifecta of Crap

4/1/2019
More
It's hard to believe now, but in 1978, DC and Warner Bros. were on top of the comic book movie world. Superman was on its way to earning $166,200,000 at the global box office and turning its star, Christopher Reeve into a household name. Even after a few missteps in the 80s (Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, The Return of Swamp Thing), thanks primarily to Batman, they were still king of the mountain well after the turn of the century. Somewhere along the way, things took a terrible turn...

We All Feel Like a Garbage Man

What if mankind had to leave Earth and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? That is basically what happened to Wall-E, the hero of Pixar's first sci-fi adventure. We meet everyone's favorite robot garbage man doing what he was built for - cleaning up a planet that humans had long since abandoned. However, when he meets a sleek robot named EVE, he discovers a new purpose. EVE meanwhile comes to discover that Wall-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to Earth's future and races...

Can you believe that it's been fifteen years since Tina Fey's first screenplay, Mean Girls hit theaters? Fifteen years since the world was first introduced to Cady Heron and Regina George. It's been fifteen years since Gretchen Wieners tried to make "fetch" happen. It didn't happen. (At least I don't think it happened.) And it's been fifteen years since Glen Coco received four candy canes! Mean Girls is a timeless film. There's really no other way to describe it. It's timeless, not because...

To Infinity War and Beyond

In its opening weekend, Captain Marvel managed to exceed expectations by bringing in $153 million domestically and $455 worldwide. This all happened despite a large number of mixed reviews and even trolls who tried to sink the audience review scores on Rotten Tomatoes. To add a little perspective to these numbers, Captain Marvel now ranks as the sixth largest worldwide opening in history. It's seventh on the list of US openings. Also, in the US, Captain Marvel scored Marvel’s second-largest...

Captain Marvel Teaser

Captain Marvel had a huge opening weekend and it's taking us a bit to wrap our heads around it all. As such, we need a few extra days to finish up our next episode in which we will be discussing our thoughts, the good and the bad, about the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but don't go anywhere because the wait will be worth it. Thanks for your support!

Indiana Jones and the Fraternity of Doom

Raiders of the Lost Ark exploded onto theaters on June 12, 1981. Directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Lawrence Kasdan, it became an instant hit grossing $8,305,823 during its opening weekend. That opening weekend would set the stage for one prequel and two sequels (with one more in development). It also created a cinematic legacy that would last for decades. In the first installment in the Indiana Jones movie franchise, Harrison Ford stars as Indiana Jones, an archaeologist who...
