'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.

'Rampage' Tops Weekend Box Office, but 'A Quiet Place' is Making the Most Noise
It was nearly an upset at the weekend box office, but Warner Bros. and New Line's Rampage was able to hold off a strong second weekend from Paramount's hit horror/thriller A Quiet Place to take the weekend's #1 spot. But that doesn't discount the fact A Quiet Place is less than $400k shy of topping $100 million domestically after just ten days in release. Additionally, Blumhouse's Truth or Dare delivered a solid, third place debut. With an estimated $34.5 million, Warner Bros. and New L...


Great Movie Making, Lousy Movie
A review of Road to Perdition
by Matt Mason

First off: yes, it was gorgeous; Yes, the music made me swoon; Yes the acting was top-notch. But when you come down to it, it was a movie little different from, say, Pretty Woman... just with a Hitman With A Heart Of Gold instead of a Hooker With A Heart Of Gold and, you have to admit, Tom Hanks looking far less sexy than Julia Roberts.

Director: Sam Mendes

Stars: Tom Hanks, Tyler Hoechlin, Paul Newman, Jude Law, Daniel Craig

Rating: R

Release: 07-12-2002

Time: 119 minutes

Buy Movie at Amazon.com I never believe there's any chemistry between the Tom Hanks and his son other than they occupy the same space for much of the movie and speak words to each other sometimes.

Then we're supposed to believe that a man whose occupation is murdering men becomes more human through his work as he really means well. Sure.

This is the kind of shallow white bread masquerading as art which just annoys the hell out of me as it suckers people into believing in it when it essentially shows us plenty of glamor and glitz but tells us nothing.
