'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...

'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.

The Best Ever Elvis vs. Mummy Movie, and More!
A review of Bubba Ho-Tep
by Matt Mason

So maybe you've heard about this one... the movie where Bruce Campbell plays Elvis who teams up with Ossie Davis, a black man who thinks he's JFK, to fight a mummy in the east Texas retirement home they both live in. Sounds bad, sounds wacky, right?

Director: Don Coscarelli

Stars: Bruce Campbell, Ossie Davis, Reggie Bannister, Bob Ivy

Rating: R

Release: 06-09-2002

Time: 92 minutes

Buy Movie at Amazon.com Surprisingly, it doesn't rely on wacky hijinks, it relies on good writing, acting, and pacing to set down this ludicrous path, walking a number of fine lines but never toppling over.

The story for Elvis is that he changed places with an impersonator and ended up stuck in the new role. Campbell plays this, again, not just for laughs but really exploring the character in surprising and solid ways.

It's comedy, it's horror, it's Bruce Campbell dressed as an elderly Elvis and stumbling downhill with a rickety walker, and it's all done with finesses and attention. In a time where moviemakers rely on the same old cliches to rake in the cash, this movie makes me want to tell director Don Coscarelli: "Thank you; thank you very much."
