    You know us, dear reader, we’re on the side of the angels. Most days of the year will find us, Pollyanna-like, looking on the bright side of the movie world, championing the weak, giving succour to the neglected and finding the silver lining to every cinematic cloud. But not today. Today, screw that...

    In Honor Of 'Riddick:' 10 Of The Most Unnecessary Sequels Ever

    If popcorn cinema in 2013 has been defined by one thing, it's been "Sharknado." But if cinema in 2013 has been defined by two things, it's "Sharknado" and... a glut of unnecessary and unwanted sequels. Think about it: "A Good Day to Die Hard," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "RED 2," "Percy Jackson and the...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Identity Thief' Returns To First; Stitches For 'Snitch'

    So far, 2013 is trailing 2012 in box office receipts, allowing “Identity Thief” to celebrate the spoils of war. The comedy is slated to become the highest grossing film of 2013 within days (beating out “Django Unchained,” which is actually a 2012 release), and this weekend it romped over a couple of...

    Dear faithful readers, we hope you enjoyed your day of stuffed animals, roses, and antacids in the shape of little hearts.

    Watch: Ben Stiller's 'Die Hard 12' Sketch That Is More Of A 'Die Hard' Movie Than 'A Good Day To Die Hard'
