Captain Underpants

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  June dawns with the best-reviewed DC movie since The Dark Knights….and Captain Underpants.  This isn’t a choice, people.

In Theaters This Week (5/26/2017): Pirates 5, Baywatch, War Machine

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  Memorial Day Weekend doesn’t exactly bring huge game to the theaters as we have a leaky franchise, a campy remake, and Netflix’s first terrifying shot across the bow of movie theaters.

In Theaters This Week (5/19/2017): Alien Covenant, Diary of a Wimpy Kid 4, Everything Everything

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  This week boils down to whether Alien: Covenant can shake off the Prometheus effect enough to take down Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

POLL RESULTS: FAVORITE GUARDIAN OF THE GALAXY IS…

null

Though it’s not going to pass the box office juggernaut that is Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 still looks like it will be the biggest film of the summer and certainly was a hit with the fans.  KT asked readers to dub the most awesome Guardian of them all and thus began one of the most furiously contested polls we’ve ever had.  In the beginning, there was Star Lord.  Peter Quill was dominating this poll through week one, and then it became a three-way race for the next two weeks as Rocket and Groot pulled right alongside him locking it into a virtual three-way tie.  However, last week saw a surge of support for the Galaxy’s most gun-obsessed trash panda, and Rocket is the pick as KT’s Favorite Guardian of the Galaxy with Groot at #2 and Star Lord at #3.  Absolutely no love for Gamora or Mantis?  I get Gamora had really nothing to do in the last film but how do you not love Mantis?  Fickle horde.  A new poll should be up in a week.  Thanks to all for the frenzied voting.

Kurt Russell’s 10 Best Movies

Kurt Russell

Kurt Russell has been in show business since was 12 and did a guest spot on Dennis the Menace.  Russell is still going strong at 66, having just starred in The Fate of the Furious and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which will-whatever else happens in 2017-end the year as two of the biggest blockbusters.  From his early work in TV, to nearly a decade of work as the poster child for Disney’s live action film division in the 1960’s to 1970’s, to Captain Ron, Escape from New York, and Big Trouble in Little China in the 1980’s and the action movie 1990’s, best marked by Tombstone.  There are some people who understand Tombstone is fundamentally awesome, and some people who are clearly wrong.  Russell has several Westerns among his best films, and does his best work in the shoes of the everyman in an extraordinary situation.  Deepwater Horizon, Backdraft, and-what I believe is the best acting of his career-as hockey coach Herb Brooks in Miracle all show Russell not as a glamorous movie star, but as the audience’s point of view into an incredible situation.  It’s an exceedingly underrated talent in an actor.  He’s tremendously likable and (admittedly he skates on this at times) there are movie stars you sometimes just want to spend two hours with, and Russell’s 50 plus years in Hollywood stand as a testament to his efficacy in connecting with filmgoers.
