The Weekend Warrior 2/10/17: The Lego Batman Movie, 50 Shades Darker, John Wick 2

8 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:                                                                

Bomb, bomb bomb bomb, Boooooomb!  Things just kept getting worse and worse at the box office as this past weekend saw more new releases not meeting up to their potential. The horribly-reviewed horror movie Rings (Paramount) ended up around where I predicted with $13 million, taking second place to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. The sci-fi romance The Space Between Us (Stx Entertainment) didn’t make much of a mark, opening in ninth place with just $3.8 million with about $1,300 per theater. Robert De Niro’s The Comedian (Sony Classics) tanked worse than many recent movies, making less than a million in 848 theaters or about $1,000 per theater. By comparison, the doc I Am Not Your Negro made about 78% of that amount in 800 less theaters. »

As The Oscars Near, The Academy Looks Warily At Awards Night Politics

2 February 2017 12:40 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Should the Oscars carry a trigger warning for Donald Trump voters? The SAG Awards ceremony on Sunday confirmed what the Golden Globes had already suggested: Nearly three months after the Presidential election, Hollywood is still in campaign mode. “Now more than ever,” as the catch-phrase goes (never mind we just saw it on a billboard at the end of Robert Altman’s The Player, from 1992), stars and filmmakers feel compelled to use awards-related appearances to voice their… »

SAG Life Achievement Honoree Lily Tomlin Reflects on Her Long Career

24 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Most legendary American comedians can’t claim the toddler set among their most strident fans, but back in the late 1960s, when Lily Tomlin was on the road performing stand-up at venues across America, she would make sure to schedule two shows — one at night for the adults, and one in the afternoon for their children.

“If I did a show in a nightclub, they’d open the club in the afternoon and I’d have a show where kids would come with their mothers,” says Tomlin, who earned her showbiz sea legs as a cast member, first on ABC’s short-lived “Music Scene” and then on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,” in which the iconic characters she created — Ernestine was a telephone operator with a signature chortle; Edith Ann was a precocious 5½-half-year-old in an oversized rocking chair who’d make appearances on “Sesame Street”— proved a gigantic hit among audiences of all ages. »

‘Monster Trucks’ Review: This Kid-Friendly Creature Feature Drafts Off A Dozen Better Movies

10 January 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The story of a hunky high school senior who discovers an oil-guzzling sea beast (think “Sesame Street” meets the Kraken), and then knots its tentacles around the chassis of his custom jalopy in a perverse attempt to pimp his ride, “Monster Trucks” seems like such an impossibly stupid idea for a movie that it’s easy to forget how it derives from a rather proud history of Hollywood entertainment. After all, there have been any number of studio spectacles about a young boy, or a teenage boy, or — in this case — an obviously grown-ass man doing a hilarious job of pretending to be a teenage boy — whose frustrated small town existence is turned upside down when he befriends a strange and unexpectedly sweet creature that teaches him about growing up or whatever. “Monster Trucks,” however aimless and confused it may be, rolls down a road paved by verified hits like “E.T., »

Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Don't Read the News

4 January 2017 11:11 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Two episodes of Chicago Pd in one week? Aren't we lucky. Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 10 throws us right back into the action with the Intelligence Unit looking for a serial killer responsible for the murders of young women going back to 2008. And Adam Ruzek ships off to someplace else, replaced by Jack Porter from Revenge...I mean, Nick Wechsler.

"Don't Read The News" (which, is anyone else bemused by how the title is so similar to that of the episode right before it?) gives the Cpd Intelligence Unit almost more than it can chew with its long list of victims. But for such a big case it's really not that complicated a plot.

As soon as The Powers That Be said that prime suspect Ricky Barnes was a DNA match it was obvious that his father Franklin was the real perpetrator. That's simple logic, as well as a device that's »
