How Terminator: Dark Fate Should Have Opened

Terminator: Dark Fate attempted to reinvigorate the sci-fi action franchise last year, but fans just didn’t want to take a risk on being disappointed yet again after two false starts in Terminator Salvation and Terminator: Genisys. The movie was a box office disappointment, and that’s rather unfortunate since there was a promising new spark in the franchise here. But perhaps the movie would have fared better if it would have gone in a different direction by getting some help from another time traveling franchise. Find out what we’re talking about in How Terminator: Dark Fate Should Have Ended. Read More »

babu frik scene

While Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has been divisive, the one thing about the movie that everyone can agree on is that Babu Frik rules. The tiny alien droidsmith is pretty darn adorable, and even though he only pops up in two scenes he still leaves his mark. Now that Rise of Skywalker has been out for a few weeks, Disney has released an official clip featuring Babu Frik in all his frikin’ glory. It also features Rey, Finn, Poe, C-3PO and Zorii Bliss, but let’s be honest: we’re here for that Frik action.

Rise of Skywalker box office billion

Abrams-directed film on the list of billion dollar grossers.

Seth Rogen Rewrote Bad Boys II

This weekend brings the release of Bad Boys for Life, but before the movie hits theaters, we’ve got a surprising bit of trivia that just came to light about Michael Bay‘s Bad Boys II.

Even though the script for Bad Boys II was written by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham, White Men Can’t Jump) and Jerry Stahl (Moonlighting, Twin Peaks), there was a rewrite done by The 40-Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up writer/director Judd Apatow, and he asked Superbad and Pineapple Express writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to help him out. Yeah, shit just got real. Read More »

bad boys for life review

Three things are essential to the Bad Boys franchise – or at least, they used to be. One is an often alarming cruelty – a disregard for anyone, and anything, all in the name of a near-sociopathic attempt at coolness. The second is what is commonly referred to as Bayhem – the wild, swirling, often incoherent action beats created by director Michael Bay. The third, and perhaps most essential, is the banter – and bickering – between leads Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

What makes Bad Boys for Life, the third and presumably final chapter in this series, so special is the jettisoning of the first two elements while embracing the third. Bay is no longer in the director’s chair, and the overall nastiness – which was ramped up to the nth degree in Bad Boys II – is nowhere to be found. But that interplay between Smith and Lawrence is ever-present, and endlessly entertaining.
