The Gross Movie Pool

Fantastic Four Flames Out; Compton Makes Man Cry UNCLE - Weeks 15-16


Perhaps the most beloved thing about super hero movies in Hollywood is even when no one likes them, they still make a lot of money. There's no huge up swell of love for the Wolverine movies, the latest Spider-Man movies, either of the Hulk movies, or even the first two Fantastic Four movies. Still, all of those films opened decently and made back a huge chunk of their change even if they weren't Tony Stark Tech-like hits. To make a film so joyless and dull that people preferred the acting prowess and terrible blonde dye jobs of Jessica Alba, now that's fantastic!

Tom Cruises To Mission Success - Week 14

You'd have thought Tom Cruise was lost on Oceanic Flight 815 for ten years the way the media fawned over him in the past week. The guy who's made over 30 films in the past 30 years was gone somewhere? He was already celebrated last year in the backwards compliment film of the year, Edge of Tomorrow, with the classic "It's not as bad as I thought it would be." You remember, the movie they basically renamed Live, Die, Repeat as Edge of Tomorrow was such a generic title. In a sense, "It's not as bad as I thought it would be" might be what's carried Cruise for years. Perhaps after all this time people were ready for the not so subtle shift to "Hey, that's was actually good."

Ant-Man Shrinks Expectations; Trainwreck Stays On Track; Pixels Is 8-Bit Bust - Weeks 12 & 13

Things can change a lot over two weeks time. Nations can go to war, rain forests can burn, new people with no chance can run for president, Pitbull can release a song. But in our movie pool? Can things really change that quickly? You might think not, yet sure things aren't looking quite as sure and carrying a tune seems to mean a lot more than anyone thought it would.

Mini Minions Make Many Moolah - Week 11

If you can make a mountain out of a molehill, it only makes sense that you can make a blockbuster with sidekicks.

Inside Out's In; Ted Drops Dead; Terminator Exodus; Nothing Up Magic Mike's Sleeve - Weeks 8, 9, 10

Sorry for the multi-week absence, but given what's been happening at the box-office, there's only two films that are creating yellow joy core memories. The others are causing blue sadness core memories of lost investments, the death of franchises, and diminished salary demands for next pictures. What's a Hollywood to do when America doesn't care about foul-mouthed teddy bears, futuristic cyborgs, and male strippers anymore?

'Jurassic World' Stomps Over The Planet - Week 7

Sometimes surprises catch you off-guard. Like you knew U2 stopped making memorable music a few albums ago, and yet you were still like, "Seriously, guys, you thought this was good?" when their latest effort was dumped onto everyone's iPhones. Other times, you're completely blown away, like that time Julia Roberts married Lyle Lovett. Look, I understand people making youthful mistakes when you're young, but no one makes youthful mistakes with Lyle Lovett. The point is let's just chalk Week Seven in the 2015 Summer Movie Pool as the time we were all completely blown away.

No Fault With San Andreas; Spy is Left a Little in the Cold - Weeks 5 & 6

Finally... The Rock... has come back to the Summer Movie Pool. Ok, ok, he was just here in 2014 with Hercules, but those were no Legendary Journeys. And, of course, he was there in Fast & Furious 6 in 2013, but he was like cotton candy at the circus. You know you're going to get it when you go there, but it's not the main reason you went in the first place. But this... This!... This is a film people are seeing and it all has to do with the most electrifying man in sports entertainment... Well, that and about $130 million in special effects.
