'Ant-Man and the Wasp' Buzzes to #1 While 'Incredibles 2' Tops $500 Million
It's another Disney-led weekend as Ant-Man and the Wasp claims the weekend's #1 spot. This marks the tenth time this year a film based on a Marvel comic character has topped the weekend box office. Also releasing this week, Universal and Blumhouse's The First Purge is the latest success in the now, four-film franchise, Roadside's documentary Whitney fell just shy of a spot in the weekend top ten and Annapurna's Sorry to Bother You was a smashing success in limited release. Disney's success...

Sequels Dominate as Denzel's 'Equalizer 2' Edges Out 'Mamma Mia!' Sequel at Top of Box Office
A different kind of record was set this weekend in that it was the first weekend ever where eight of the top ten films at the weekend box office were sequels. Of those eight, two of the weekend's new follow-up films are locked in a tight race at the top with Sony's The Equalizer 2 pulling off a surprise upset, edging out Universal's Mamma Mia!

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 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.
