Knotts is marketing movie merchandise like a pro wrestling promoter -- from the days of Johnny Powers, Bobo Brazil and the Fabulous Kangaroos.
Timing is everything, though.....in a weekend where only a pair of new flicks faced off - in wide release - for top honors, "300: Rise of An Empire" pulled in a cool $45.1 million, outdistancing "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" ($32.5 million).
Dickens died in 1870.
It was strategic might - spearheaded by generals Georgy Zhukov and Aleksandr Vasilevsky (Operatsiya "Uran") - that helped turn the tide in the European Theatre.
Tear Down the Wall(s).
If someone has the time to clear the calendar, the two-day ticket is incredibly inexpensive.
The 1987 film was brutally awesome. To pull this franchise out of mothballs - RoboCop 3 (1993) was hilariously hideous and RoboCop 2 (1990) was minimally better, but pales to the first flick - with a reboot by updating/tweaking the original classic story is puzzling.
Where is the Capitol Theatre?
Dallas buyers club should be in this list. If you haven't yet, you must watch it.
Even the most cynical pop culture critic has to give props to Vanessa Hudgens for her ongoing effort to tackle eclectic acting roles....as a solid student in the fine art of being a serious actress.
.....revolutions seemingly sound fantastic, depending on what one cares to see, minus political blinkers; Richard Elman's classic book on the fall of the Somoza regime in Nicaragua -- "Cocktails at Somoza's" -- chronicles such crumbling hopes as the old boss gives way to the new ones.
It sounds like the budget was so tight that the scenes were cut in one take......with a partially written script.
"Her" brings to the screen every outlook by Kraftwerk on the bold, bright, frightening future frontier as chronicled in "Computer World".
FYI- The maincharacters name is Jordan Belfort, not Jason...
Fan of Leo anyway....
"Cry Freedom" seems to be the lost gem of cinema which powerfully captures the brutal, bitter politics of apartheid and the silencing of activist voices by any means necessary....while covering the bloody tracks through Orwellian verbiage.
There seems to be a trend for movies (which are guaranteed to generate box-office buzz) to clock in around the three-hour mark. Directors may be getting more leverage due to the spiraling cost of tickets -- which is not a bad thing.
This nation is one big hustle. And - if anything - the sprawling movie shows the characters moving in one direction for a big coup.....but you know they will drop a dime on their "teammates" for a bigger slice of the pie. There is no sharing when the bottom line comes to an end of the game within the game.
This should probably say 'bikini kill'
