Monthly Movie Preview – July 2010 – ‘Inception’ and ‘Dinner for Schmucks’

Monthly Movie Preview – July 2010 July has this weird way of sneaking up on me every year. June just seems to slip away and July comes out of nowhere. Unfortunately, when it comes to movies, evidently Hollywood feels the same way. The July seems like one of the most bare minimum month’s of release, but then again, that’s good […]

Monthly Movie Preview – June 2010 – ‘A-Team’ to ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

Monthly Movie Preview – June 2010 – ‘A-Team’ to ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

Monthly Movie Preview – June 2010 It’s difficult to say where the blockbuster season begins. On one hand, there were some highly anticipated releases for the month of May, such as Iron Man 2 but with June, the kids are out of school and summers in full swing. For a movie theater, this can be a blessing and a curse. […]

Monthly Movie Preview – May 2010 – ‘Iron Man 2’ to ‘Prince of Persia’

Monthly Movie Preview – May 2010 It’s summer. Hang on, don’t go outside to verify the weather. Just trust me. It’s summer. I should know, I’m a film critic. Sure, if you’re in Chicago you’ll have another couple of days with highs in the 40s. And if you live in Portland, there will be some cloudy days ahead of us, […]

Monthly Movie Preview – April 2010 – ‘Clash of the Titans’ to ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’

Monthly Movie Preview – April 2010 April is a delicate time of year for the movie industry. The skies are returning to their beautiful shades of blue, the grass is getting green again. Everyone’s thoughts are turning to the summer so studios have to start bringing out their A game to keep audiences interested. Yet they don’t want to peak […]

Monthly Movie Preview – March 2010 – ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’

February was a time for love with the breakaway success of Valentine’s Day. However, March seems to be more of a ragtag group. After all, March doesn’t really have the advantage of any real marketable holidays, aside from St. Patty’s Day and after this year’s Leap Year most audiences are probably over the Irish thing. So with March, there’s no […]

Monthly Movie Preview – January 2010

Monthly Movie Preview – January 2010

The most distressing month in America probably isn’t November or December, when the big Oscar dogs come out in full force with their pride on their sleeves, only to be shot down or embraced by critics or audiences alike. I’d argue the most stressful month in Hollywood is the wet fart that is January, where Hollywood exhales whatever material it […]

Monthly Movie Preview – December 2009

Monthly Movie Preview – December 2009

This is going to be a great month. No matter whether these big and small movies fall flat on their faces or not there’s going to be plenty to choose from – especially for those who want to keep up with important films. First up is Avatar, one of the biggest gambles of this decade. Will the same kind of […]

Monthly Movie Preview – November 2009 … A Christmas Carol, 2012, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and more

It’s the holidays. We know this because the movies tell us so. This year they waited exactly one week after Halloween to start the Christmas fare with Jim Carrey’s A Christmas Carol. But even though the month starts with Christmas, the movie month plays out just like Thanksgiving. At first, we’re given an array of wonderful treats that’s we’ll happily […]

September 2009 Monthly Movie Preview

Here comes the fall. And I’m not talking about the seasons. Normally fall is when you notice the blockbusters, and the quality of those blockbusters, drop a touch. But then again, what did August do for you? I loved Inglorious Basterds … and there was some decent escapes for dates like Julie & Julia and The Time Traveler’s Wife. It […]

August 2009 Monthly Movie Preview

August is going to be a fairly original month, come to think of it. While the top dogs of the next 30-days all crib from some other source, (District 9 excluded), there’s a fair amount of fresh writing sneaking into multiplexes to round off the summer. For example, you’ve got Paper Heart, Shorts (another kid’s movie from Robert Rodriguez, who […]
