With a whimper, we leave Summer 2017 behind. After a dismal August at the box office, we are prepared to move into the Fall movie season.
This said, let’s dwell on the recent past for a bit longer and take a look at the best and worst films of the Summer, ordered chronologically by release date.
The tongue-in-cheek TV series adaptation Baywatch just doesn’t feel Continue reading Top 9 Best & Worst Movies of Summer 2017
Last weekend, the fifth installment in the Michael Bay Transformers franchise, The Last Knight, drastically under-performed. Coming in at $44.6 million, the film has received the lowest grossing opening weekend in the franchise.
With that knowledge, the introductory weekend to July will prove interesting at the box office. Transformers will likely see a significant drop, and three other wide releases look to take its place at number one.

Transformers: The Last Knight is, surprisingly, a movie.
The film is a direct sequel to Transformers: Age of Extinction, not that that is important. Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen), leader of the Autobots, is adrift in space, frosted over in route to his homeworld.
And he will remain frosted over for most of the movie.
Meanwhile, on Earth, various humans have agendas related to Transformers and Continue reading Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Movie Review

I’m about a month late to this game, but, you know, life gets in the way sometimes. Who are you to judge? This said, I am cheating a bit with a month’s worth of data already available.
Either way, it is time to take a look at what Hollywood blockbusters will top the domestic box office in Summer 2017 (Summer 2017 in this case encompassing the period between the first weekend in May and Labor Day weekend). Shall we?
The Top Ten: Continue reading 2017 Summer Box Office Predictions
June 2017 comes with a mix of high profile money makers, animated family affair, Summer horror counter-programming, and smaller films. We’re looking at a June box office that will see a DC figurehead go up against the seemingly unending onslaught of transforming toys.

Let’s take a look at what June has in store.
Here’s why you don’t get your hopes up, folks. People will tell you that this looks like Continue reading Summer 2017 Movie Release Preview: June
We’ve made it folks. We have seen trailers belabor the point more and more over the course of the 21st century, slowly inching their way to three minutes in length (or more), revealing endings and plot twists because marketing departments don’t care about spoilers (money…they care about money).
We have seen trailers for trailers, which is to say snippets of a trailer that play at the beginning of a trailer just in case you forgot that you were about to watch a trailer and were about to click away from the video on Youtube.
