It’s mid-May, schools are beginning to take their summer break, the weather is hot and the movies are getting hotter. “Star Trek Into Darkness” will no doubt keep the box office alive this weekend. It’s the only wide release; so it won’t have any major competition but … [Read More...]
Box Office Preview for the Weekend of May 10, 2013
One of the biggest questions of May is “How will ‘The Great Gatsby’ fare with summer audiences?” A good question after it was delayed from December 2012. The second weekend of May is typically slow because the first week is always host to a blockbuster; so with “Iron Man 3” bringing in … [Read More...]
Summer of 2013 Fantasy Preview
Let the summer movie games begin! As usual this summer promises to bring you big explosions, superheroes, laughs, and animated franchises, along with indie hits and crowd-pleasing sleepers.

Box Office Preview for the Weekend of April 26, 2013
The weekend before the summer movie season is historically a dead zone and a spot for studios to drop a no-confidence picture that will disappear in a week. Who remembers #1 movies “Obsessed” or “RV”? Several movies released this weekend could fit that profile. But in recent … [Read More...]
Director JJ Abrams and Valve CEO Gabe Newell talked movies and video games at the DICE 2013 summit on February 8. During the keynote speech, the two hinted at the possibility of collaboration on movies based on Valve games like "Half-Life" and "Portal," according to Digital Spy.

So I have been thinking about the editorial style of Studio Wars for the last week and have been wondering, is it best to keep it professional or should I just start talking to everyone? I still don't know. But here I am, sharing with you my personal movie opinions and showing you that I am not some deep movie mind. I am a shoot em up, explosion … [Read More...]
Last week I had an online draft with 4 friends. We had a pretty good time as we drafted, trash talked and pretended to know everything about every movie that was coming out in the next three months (thank you IMDB & Rotten Tomatoes).
In this particular league we are running from January 18th - March 18th, so it is a three month … [Read More...]
Movie goers were in the mood for some horror this weekend. With an absolute domination at the weekend box office Mama walked away with an amazing and (slightly) unexpected $28 million. With Mama selling in the $20 - $25 million range in most fantasy movie leagues, most owners of this movie should be very happy with their results. Mama also score … [Read More...]

Battle For The Best End of the World Movies of All Time
It's The End Of The World As We Know It!
It seems like 2013 is the year that film makers decided to go beyond simple disaster movies and take the destruction of the world a step further into evacuation or even extinction of Earth & humans.
With movies like Oblivion, After Earth, … [Read More...]
I would normally start a mid-January box office preview post off with a shot at the poor movies being released to theaters right now, but everyone knows what January is. It is a movie dumping ground.
But this January feels different. Not due to the movies coming out, but because of what is available in theaters right now. The local theater is … [Read More...]
“Wreck-It Ralph” is a great movie based in the world of video games. Disney had reportedly been developing this script for the better part of twenty years before screenwriters Jennifer Lee and Phil Johnston finally got it just right. But “Wreck-It Ralph” is almost dated, almost proof that it really was first conceptualized sometime back in … [Read More...]
