Was this the worst summer for movies EVER?

This weekend had the distinction of seeing the remake of Ben Hur crash and burn in the box office – like many other hopeful ‘tentpole’ movies before it this year. Ghostbusters? It went down like the Pokemon Go servers. X-Men: Apocolypse? A distinctive meh. Independence Day? Let’s just say it didn’t blow up the box office.  Even […]

Ghostbusters Busts Out a Solid Movie

After months of hype, I finally got to see the new Ghostbusters movie – and depending on how you spin it, it was good. The problem with the Ghostbusters reboot is that it will always be compared to the original 1984 movie – and that’s a tough act to follow.     The original Ghostbusters […]

San Diego Comic-Con, the Mecca of all things popular culture.  There is no other convention like it. It is not just the convention, it is the location, the hype, the crowds, the reveals, it is everything.  I have been vending at conventions for over 20 years, and I have never experienced anything like San Diego […]

In it they talk about the decline of attendance, the abundance of movies across all devices and platforms and whether people really want to go to the movies anymore. They ring some serious […]

Review No One Asked For: Victoria

Victoria is an ambitious film.  If Birdman (ignoring the stuffy sub-title) got critics and viewers jazzed-up for a roving camera that follows characters from scene to scene, wait until you get a load of this: Victoria is a film taken in one shot.  Not artfully designed to appear like one shot.  It’s a feature length, […]

Paul Feig’s hotly anticipated Ghostbusters reboot has been lambasted for all the wrong reasons. He’s struck out at sexists and men’s rights activists who’ve complained about the all-female cast. But there’s one thing none of us counted on – that gender conotations aside, the movie could just be objectively bad. And the new Ghostbusters trailer, released today, […]

The Name Is Bond, James Bond. So Who Will It Be?

The Name Is Bond, James Bond. So Who Will It Be? It was recently reported on UK’s EXPRESS that James Bond, Daniel Craig might actually, almost certainly (maybe, perhaps) be walking away from the 007 franchise. For good. Maybe. Apparently Craig has been signed on to play a leading role in a US TV drama […]

Stop EVERYTHING and go and watch Chi-Raq on Amazon Prime

Spike Lee’s Amazon-exclusive movie Chi-Raq is one of the most astonishing films of 2015. Go watch it NOW. So I’ve often admitted that I’m Echoba.se’s resident asshole, especially when it comes to posts of a political nature. That’s why when I wrote about Amazon Prime’s inagugural shot at movie production – Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq – […]
