'A Quiet Place' Delivers Not So Quiet $50 Million Opening
With a $50 million debut, Paramount's A Quiet Place finished atop the weekend box office in impressive fashion and while Universal's Blockers didn't deliver even half of what A Quiet Place did, the film's $21 million debut was a solid start for the low budget R-rated comedy. The weekend also saw a very strong hold for Warner Bros.'s Ready Player One and Disney and Marvel's Black Panther topped Titanic this weekend to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time.

Wing Commander Doesn't Fly
A review of Wing Commander
by J. D. Rummel

After being disappointed by Analyze This, I snuck into Wing Commander and I'm glad I did. If I had paid for two movies this disappointing in one day, I'd be hot. NOTE: I've never played the game, so I don't know what in-jokes or secret decoder ring, in-crowd crap I might have missed.

Director: Chris Roberts

Stars: Freddie Prinze, Jr., Matthew Lillard, Saffron Burrows, Jurgen Prochnow, Tcheky Karyo

Rating: PG-13

Release: 03-12-1999

Time: 105 minutes

Buy Movie at Commander is like one of those movies that came pouring out after Star Wars struck the mother load. It is rich in special affects, but lacks any real characters or hook for the audience (The Last Star Fighter, The Black Hole). Everyone goes through the motions telling the paint by numbers story of Lieutenant Blair (Freddie Prinze Jr.) the half-breed whiz pilot fresh on the base and ready to prove himself worthy of respect. This is sort of Top Gun: The Next Generation.

Some of the ciphers on screen die aided by magnificent special effects, but you won't really care at all. Nor is it really very funny in that unintentional way that some movies have. No one does a particularly impressive job in his or her part, except for Tchéky Karyo as Commander Taggart. This one might have seemed like a great idea at some time, but nothing great made it to the screen in any commanding fashion. Save your money for The Phantom Menace.
