[Review] Boo! A Madea Halloween

You know you are in trouble when the funniest part of a movie is Madea’s discussion of her retirement account. (She calls it her “Ho-01K” account, because she couldn’t open a 401K due to her illegal income.) Yes, it might finally be time to pull the plug on Madea, the strong-willed former stripper who just so happens to be everybody’s wacky aunt.

In his latest outing, the man behind Madea seems bored with his own creation, yet Tyler Perry only has himself to blame as writer, director, star, producer, and executive. His usual freedom and autonomy to green-light any project has led to interesting work the studio system might have passed on, like Daddy’s Little Girls and the somewhat brilliant Why Did I Get Married Too?. As of late, Perry has slowed down on the theatrical side, leaving an unusual two-year gap between his latest

If You Thought This Was a Tyler Perry Movie, You Might Be Racist…

-Phoebe Robinson

I kid, I kid, but I’m also kind of serious. When someone mentions Tyler Perry, it’s only fair to think of him dressing up in old lady drag, bible thumping, and moralizing about how women shouldn’t open their legs for any good looking dude like they are a 24-hour Golden Corral. (Seriously, did you see Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor? Way to send a message to women that if they are not faithful, they’re going to get AIDS and everyone will hate them. Ugh!)

But here’s the thing: Ty Ty isn’t the owner of these kinds of movie tropes, so it’s about time we stop acting like it and recognize other movies that rely on these storytelling motifs. For example:

Addicted | Review

A Dirty Shame: Woodruff’s Erotic Fiction Adaptation Flatlines

Demurely arriving before the anticipated film version of E.L. James’ erotic fiction nonsense Fifty Shades of Grey comes the first adaptation of Zane’s 2001 novel, Addicted. Having had well over a decade to build her fan base, it’s surprising that it has taken so long for such a reality to transpire, though marketing for the title has been curiously slim considering Bille Woodruff is at the helm. Distributed by Lionsgate boutique division Codeblack, the film wasn’t screened for critics, which isn’t generally a vote of confidence. While those who know and appreciate Zane’s work, including a fan base that would appear to be mostly made up of heterosexual black women, will be curious to experience Woodruff’s film version, the only point it proves is that silliness knows no racial bounds.

Zoe Reynard (Sharon Leal) is a woman in trouble,

Film Review: ‘Addicted’

Film Review: ‘Addicted’
Billed as an erotic thriller but playing more like an R-rated daytime soap, “Addicted” marks a rare but dramatically neutered opportunity to explore a black woman’s sexuality onscreen. Based on the breakthrough novel by popular erotica author Zane, musicvid director Bille Woodruff’s adaptation bears the conflicted burden of tempting audiences with its attractive cast in various states of undress, while simultaneously trying to destigmatize the touchy topic of sex addiction. Attempts at serious sensuality in mainstream movies haven’t been a theatrical turn-on for some time now (next year’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” looks like a more significant test case), but Zane’s fan base could propel this slick, superficial yet mildly seductive drama to some frisky action in ancillary.

Arriving in theaters sans screenings for critics, the latest release from Lionsgate’s CodeBlack Films division could be glibly dismissed as “Tyler Perry’s Unfaithful,” if Perry

Digital Tracking: Dracula to Quench Box Office Thirst With $23 million

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? Moviepilot – which studies social data and box office trends – analyzes this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Dracula Untold,” Universal

Moviepilot Prediction: $23 million

“Dracula: Untold” could be in a cold-blooded battle with “Gone Girl” for box office glory. Digital tracking has the movie set to bite off an impressive $23 million for the weekend.

This summer’s fantasy hit “Hercules” topped “Untold” on YouTube views by almost 12 million (with similar Buzz), but millions of views can be added to “Untold” when including Facebook video, with over a million views on one trailer post. Thanks

Box Office: ‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’ Bites Into Top Spot, ‘Need for Speed’ in Third

Box Office: ‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’ Bites Into Top Spot, ‘Need for Speed’ in Third
The box office has gone to a dog.

Fox-DreamWorks Animation’s “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” will mark its territory as this weekend’s No. 1 movie with $21.2 million. Disney-DreamWorks’ “Need for Speed,” which had been the favorite to win the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, is now on track for a disappointing third place finish with a $17.8 million opening.

Produced for approximately $145 million, the canine toon “Peabody” (A CinemaScore) has a two-week Stateside cume of $63 million — about 75% of the total domestic gross of Fox’s last pic, “Turbo” ($83 million). However, “Turbo” more than doubled that figure overseas with $283 million.

“Peabody” earned an additional $15.3 million from 61 international markets.

The racecar actioner “Speed” (B+ CinemaScore) was the victor on Thursday and Friday, but lost momentum along the way. It fared better internationally with $45.6 million. Scott Waugh’s pic debuted in almost every major overseas market. The movie opened no. 1 in China, where it earned $21.2 million.

Film Review: ‘Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club’

Film Review: ‘Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club’
Five women from disparate walks of life find common ground as single parents in “Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club,” one of the best products to roll off the prolific multihyphenate’s Atlanta-based assembly line, largely absent the pandering humor and finger-wagging moralism that have bedeviled many of Perry’s earlier (if undeniably popular) efforts. Perry is by now a well-established brand who knows what his audience wants, but this gentle, touching and sometimes quite funny portrait of female solidarity (think “Waiting to Exhale” by way of “9 to 5”) manages to play to Perry’s base while simultaneously broadening it. Disenfranchised distaff moviegoers eager to prove Cate Blanchett’s Oscar speech right ought to line up in droves.

The generally low-key, ingratiating vibe of Perry’s latest is reflected in Perry himself, who gives a nicely understated supporting performance here as a divorced father of two who ends up wooing

34th Annual 'Razzie Awards' Winners!
The results are in, the envelopes have been opened, and the "winners" of the 34th Razzie Awards have been unveiled in ceremonies held at Hollywood's coolest new venue - just down the street from Sunday night's Oscars - IgnitedSpaces. The hour long show handed out at least one statuette to four of the five Worst Picture nominees, but Adam Sandler and his unfunny follow up Grown Ups 2 went home empty-handed.

Taking three of the top awards was the star-studded, snicker-free sketch comedy Movie 43, which "won" for Worst Screenplay (written by at least 19 people), Worst Director ("credited" to 13 people), and Worst Picture. Tying with 43, and also "winning" 3 gold spray-painted trophies, was the Will Smith and Jaden Smith sci-fi fiasco After Earth. Dad Will Smith took Worst Supporting Actor, son Jaden Smith was named Worst Lead Actor, and the combination of father & son, described in the ceremony as being "stranded

Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2013. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Movie 43," beating out such films as "After Earth," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger" and "A Madea Christmas." The movie also won for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. The theme of this year's Razzies focused on the Smith family, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor and Will Smith winning for Worst Supporting Actor for "After Earth." The father-son team also won in the Worst Screen Combo category.

Therapy isn’t rehab — but it’s a step in the right direction. Khloe and Lamar reportedly attended a couples therapy session on Nov. 8 to try and work things out. Would you be thrilled if they got professional help to save their marriage, HollywoodLifers?
