Moviepass moviefone

MoviePass wants to become your one-stop shop when it comes to going to the movie theater. The movie theater subscription service has already gotten the ticket-buying market cornered — to the joy of some and the chagrin of others in the industry — and now it wants to become a source of movie reviews.

The recent MoviePass Moviefone acquisition raised some eyebrows when it made headlines last week, since Moviefone’s assets seemed to overlap with what MoviePass already offered. But MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe revealed that he has more ambitious plans in mind than simply offering movie listings.

rampage early buzz

At this point, you know what to expect in a Dwayne Johnson movie. Big explosions, even bigger pecs, and lots of testosterone-fueled male posturing — probably in the jungle, and probably while the Rock is wearing the same khaki shirt he’s dragged across five movie sets.

Johnson has nailed a type, and he’s got an audience willing to pay top dollar to see him to it again. And from the looks of Rampage, it’s very much the same action-packed blockbuster we expect to see from Johnson. But that doesn’t mean it’s not good.

Is Frozen The Musical a Disney stage adaptation that you should let go? Or will you melt with love for it? The consensus seems to be divided in Frozen The Musical early buzz.

The musical, which made its Broadway debut on March 22, 2018 after a brief preview run in Denver last year, was one of the most hotly anticipated musicals of the year.

After five years of waiting, Pacific Rim Uprising is finally hitting theaters. The sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 sci-fi action extravaganza brings Star Wars lead John Boyega into the mix as Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba’s deceased character from the first film. This time, the humans are prepared for the return of the giant, city-demolishing monsters known as kaiju, but are critics prepared for a sequel that is out of the hands of monster master Guillermo del Toro?

The first Pacific Rim Uprising reviews are in, and it sounds like the sequel from director Steven S. DeKnight may not be as good as its predecessor, but fans will still have a good time in the end. However, they apparently have to suffer through a boring first half before they get there. Get the full scoop with the Pacific Rim Uprising early buzz below. Read More »

cherry picks

There’s no question that Rotten Tomatoes has become a force to be reckoned with in the movie industry.
