Paging Dr. Groovy, please report back to reality!
Going into Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Episode 7, I wasn't quite sure what Baal had in store for our pal Ash. Unless Baal needs a new meat suit, he doesn't typically kill for the fun of it. His enjoyment seems to come from toying with people, planting that seed and eventually driving them bananas.
Last week I had mentioned how I loved the song choice for the closing credits on Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Episode 6. What made it even better was how it clued us in to where the next episode would take us.
The psychiatric ward was a great setting. The dilapidated hospital set the tone for the episode along with the introduction of Ash's psychiatrist, Dr. Peacock.
Baal cleans up nicely doesn't he?
There is something genuinely off putting about insane asylum's in general, so choosing to go this »

There is plenty to discuss in a weekend where Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween is crowned champion of the largest three-day weekend the 2016 box office has seen in over two months. Boo!, along with fellow new releases Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Ouija: Origin of Evil and Keeping Up with the Joneses, generated 61.6% of the top twelve's overall gross of nearly $114 million, up 28% from last weekend and up 20% from last year. The weekend also saw a stellar opening for A24's Moonlight in limited release, delivering the largest opening per theater average of the year, and there are plenty of overseas results to discuss. Topping the weekend box office, Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween brought in a stellar $27.6 million from 2,260 theaters ($12,212 PTA), the largest opening for a Madea branded feature and for a Tyler Perry-directed film overall since 2009's Madea Goes to Jail. As far as Madea-branded titles are concerned, »

Four new wide releases this weekend should help propel the top twelve over $100 million this weekend and, for the first time in six weeks, show improvement over the same weekend last year. This weekend is also going big with sequels, delivering three of them including Tom Cruise returning as the title star in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, the horror sequel Ouija: Origin of Evil and Tyler Perry's latest outing as Madea in Boo! A Madea Halloween. Fox will also be releasing the ensemble comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses and Pure Flix is releasing the faith-based, Columbine drama I'm Not Ashamed into just over 500 theaters. Overall the weekend top twelve should come in around $100-105 million if all goes as forecasted. At the top, it would be a nice win for Paramount should they land a #1 finish with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The studio has had a rough go this year, »

The summer movie season always brings huge tentpole movies aimed at youngsters on summer vacation, which leads to a slew of box office blockbusters. The fall season doesn't always have the big exciting numbers of the summer season each weekend, but it is when we start to see a lot more adult fare, and potential awards season favorites. While we don't know how it may fare in the Oscar race, Ben Affleck's The Accountant ran away with an easy win this weekend with $24.7 million. This thriller easily beat out fellow newcomers Kevin Hart: What Now? and Max Steel, the latter of which couldn't even crack the top 10.
Box Office Mojo reports that The Accountant earned $24.7 million from 3,332 theaters for a solid $7,417 per-screen average. The movie had the nation's critics almost equally divided, with a 51% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. With a $44 million budget, Ben Affleck's The Accountant has »
Last weekend, The Girl On the Train steamrolled its competition with a box office win of $24.5 million in its first frame in theaters. This weekend, it will face a diverse trio of newcomers, Warner Bros.' thriller The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, Open Road Films' Max Steel starring newcomer Ben Winchell and the stand up concert film Kevin Hart: What Now? arriving in wide release. We're predicting that it should be a runaway victory for The Accountant, which should win with a projected $26.3 million.
Box Office Mojo reports that The Accountant will debut in approximately 3,200 theaters this weekend, while Kevin Hart: What Now? is slated to arrive in 2,500 theaters and Max Steel debuts in 2,000 theaters. Surprisingly, none of these have enough movie reviews posted yet to warrant a score on Rotten Tomatoes, but that will surely change soon. We're predicting that last weekend's winner The Girl On the Train »
