"The Kids Are All Right" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does It Deserve? 


I cannot stop praising the new feel-good dramedy “The Kids Are All Right.” The film was enthusiastically received at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and the winner of the Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival. I suspect moviegoers will also welcome this film with open arms.


The movie is built like a great sitcom with memorable characters and involving plot. At the heart of “The Kids Are All Right” is an intriguing question – what happens when kids, conceived via artificial insemination, grow up and start looking for their dad? Read More...

Dreamy Reception for "Inception," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" FLOPS! See the Top 10 Box-Office Films! 


Director Christopher Nolan's "Inception" debuted at the No. 1 spot for this weekend proving that a film does not have to be a remake, a sequel, or be based on a popular comic book to top the current crop of films at the box-office.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, "Inception" opened big with $60.4 million topping the actor's previous best of $41.1 million for Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island." (Check out my "Inception" movie review right here)

Warner Bros., the studio behind "Inception," wisely chose the mid-July opening date since it has been shaping up to be the studio's lucky weekend. Both "The Dark Knight" and "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" had the same mid-July opening dates .

Of course, the final "Harry Potter" will open the same weekend next year, and the third "Batman" flick from Nolan will also debut the same weekend two years from now.

The strong reviews for "Inception" will help the flick shoulder on through the dog days of summer. Meanwhile, previous weekend's No. 1 flick, Universal's "Despicable Me," slipped to No. 2 with a respectable $32.7 million box-office take. So far, the fun animated film featuring the voice of Steve Carell has raised its 10-day total to $118.4 million.

The sad news of the weekend belonged to Disney and its "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel. The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film was a resounding flop opening at No. 3 with $17.4 million. If we factor in its opening total since premiering Wednesday, the film has made a measly $24.5 million.

All I can say is, let's bring in more original ideas and forget sequels and remakes! The top 2 films of the weekend are ORIGINAL! See? It pays off at the box-office. Are you listening Hollywood?

Here's the estimated Top 10 Box-Office films for weekend of July 16th:

1. "Inception," $60.4 million.

2. "Despicable Me," $32.7 million.

3. "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," $17.4 million.

4. "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," $13.5 million.

5. "Toy Story 3," $11.7 million.

6. "Grown Ups," $10 million.

7. "The Last Airbender," $7.5 million.

8. "Predators," $6.8 million.

9. "Knight and Day," $3.7 million.

10. "The Karate Kid," $2.2 million.
