Not Ready to Let It Go

Two of the year’s most anticipated movies arrived in theaters this weekend but one overtook the other in a blizzard of ticket sales. The Hollywood Reporter states that Disney’s Frozen 2 had an opening making $130 million in the United States and another $228.2 overseas making it a grand total of $358.2 million. The Mister Rogers tribute, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood came in way behind with an astonishingly low $13.5 million. It is clear that audiences are not ready to let go of the Frozen franchise.

‘The Star’ is Coming Back

Affirm Films and Sony Pictures Animation’s holiday hit of 2017 is returning to movie theaters for two days only the first weekend in December at select theaters. Personally, we’re thrilled to see it come back and in “celebration” of the event, Writer of Pop is giving away a DVD copy of the film and two amazing children’s books which would make for nice Christmas gifts this year.

Scooby-Doo, Where are You?

Over the years, Scooby-Doo has taken on different formats and animation styles. Warner Bros. has released a new movie trailer for yet another incarnation. Unlike 2017’s series, Be Cool Scooby-Doo! which featured an animation style that ruined the childhoods of many, Scoob! will give a sigh of relief. Read More >>>

Frozen 2

Making sequels are a tricky thing. Walt Disney himself rarely made them. Sure, they are often a cash cow for filmmakers, but fans are often disappointed because the secondary stories don’t measure up to the first. The Toy Story franchise is a great exception this, but even this last summer’s installment of the series drew division among its fans. While some praised Disney/Pixar for yet another story, others felt that they should have left the story well enough alone. There might be similar arguments for Disney’s Frozen 2. Read More >>>

Knives Out

Knives Out

Written and directed by Rian Johnson and featuring a fantastic cast, Knives Out is witty, sarcastic and despite what seems like a huge giveaway while still in the first third of the movie, will keep you guessing until the very end. It is a modern tale but most of the story takes place within an old mansion with hidden rooms and secret doorways giving the film a classic look and feel. Read More >>>

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

TriStar Pictures presents a tribute to Fred Rogers with A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, sharing the odd friendship between the almost saintly public television star and a bitter magazine columnist. The movie is based on real events that were recorded in Tom Junod’s article, “Can You Say…Hero?” for Esquire magazine in 1998 and Tim Madigan’s memoir, I’m Proud of You: My Friendship with Fred Rogers.

The Good Liar

I think The Good Liar is going to be one of those films that you with either like it a lot or dislike it a little. Some are comparing the Bill Condon film to the mysteries and thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock while others are not so impressed. One thing that just about everybody agrees on is that the film makes for a good excuse to see two cinematic greats play off of each other in grand style. Read More >>>

Dark Waters

As you know, many films have claim to be “based on a true story” or “inspired by a true story,” but Hollywood has a tendency to mix things up to make things more dramatic. However, in the case of Focus Feature’s latest release, Dark Waters, it appears that the story presented is pretty close to what happened, at least Matthew Phelan from Slate thinks so. He performed a bunch of interviews with the real people portrayed in the film and most of it checks out. That only makes this chilling tale a lot scarier. Read More >>>
