The Gross Movie Pool: 2017

‘Transformers’ Trans-sucks; ‘Despicable’ Not Hated Yet - Weeks 8 & 9

I’m not going to pretend to be a Transformers fan. It’d be like me pretending to be a Twilight fan. The fact that I’ve seen three Twilight movies to only two Transformers movie doesn’t necessarily mean I’m a bigger fan of one, I just happened to be on a plane around when those films were available. There may have been an idea at one point that since Twilight films were based on books, there was more of a story to them. However, when your 19th century-premise of a teenage girl who needs to choose marriage between two boys is set in the 21st century where most women just live a little and build a career before settling down, there’s not a lot more substance there than “good robot go beat bad robot.”

‘The Mummy’ is Buried; ‘Cars 3’ is in Neutral; ‘Wonder Woman’ is on Fire - Weeks 6 & 7

In the 1999 version of The Mummy they alluded to the ten plagues of Egypt. Universal forgot the 11th plague: Don’t try to reboot The Mummy franchise without Brendan Fraser when he doesn’t even have one foot in the grave or your film will be cursed to be forgotten like a one-hit wonder by Kajagoogoo! (Ok, the mere fact that I can remember the one-hit song by them doesn’t make the curse any less potent. It’s just means I’m too shy shy... hush hush, eye to eye) The movie gods were not amused at these foolhardy producers and laid their full wraith on this new version which didn’t even cast anyone named Brendan or Fraiser Crane.

‘Woman’ a Wonder; ‘Underpants’ Soiled; ‘Pirates’ Adrift; ‘Bay’ Not Watched - Weeks 4 & 5

Whether it was Scandal or Michelle Branch singing Goodbye To You (Hey, look at me being multi-generational! Oh wait, only old people would use the word multi-generational. Dag nabbit!), Goodbye to May is what we should all be singing after that four week atrocity. One! Only one film released during May looks to have any shot to be in Top Five of the Summer and it’s often a month with three to four solid Top Five contenders. It was going to take more than a woman to clean up this mess. It was going to take a Wonder Woman.

‘May Day!’ Cry Four Films Fading Fast - Weeks 2 & 3

Sometimes a hit film draws people out to the theaters to see the other new films. The success of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 seems to have done the opposite. Instead of folks trying new films, they’d rather go with the racoon they know then the aliens they don’t (Xenomorphs and Amy Schumer included).

Guardians of the Box-Office - Vol. Week 1

2017 began the same as almost every other summer season I can remember… with a Marvel movie. You haven’t to go back to 2006 to the last summer that didn’t start with a Marvel comic book film (Take a bow, Mission: Impossible III... and then leave quickly as your probably my least favorite J.J. Abrams film and least favorite M:I film... How’d you blow having Keri Russell and Philip Seymour Hoffman in your film?!).

2017 Summer Movie Pool - Preview

The ice rink has melted, the curling stones have been put away, and finally, The Rock has come back to wearing something as revealing as his old wrestling tights in the Baywatch movie, so it's time for the 21th Annual Summer Movie Pool!

2016 Holiday Movie Pool - Final Results

Truth be told, the 2016 Holiday Movie Pool may be one of those Holiday Seasons that’s fairly forgettable. Over 50 movies were released in the past two months and while five of them made more than $200 million, 45 of them didn’t even make it past $100 million. Sure, sure, many of those releases were smaller films hoping more for Oscar Gold than Box-Office Money, but unless you’re 127 Hours you don’t make any movie with James Franco expecting Oscar Gold.
