Can Any New Movie Unseat Captain Marvel?

George Wolf George Wolf Can Any New Movie Unseat Captain Marvel?

Damn, a lot of movies come out this week. Is any one of them strong enough to take over the coveted #1 slot at the box office? Oh, hell no. Not a single chance of it. The national releases are poor to middling in quality, although there are some really worthwhile indie gems for you […]

George Wolf George Wolf Legos and Liam, Moms and Mind Reading in Theaters

A pretty mediocre week in new releases, honestly, although a couple of films offer enough charm and/or weirdness to entertain. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part by Hope Madden Everything is not awesome. Don’t tell Emmet (Chris Pratt), though. Try as he might (mainly to please the ever-brooding Lucy/Wildstyle [Elizabeth Banks]), he can’t seem […]
