Star Wars

Category: Arts And EntertainmentJonette @ 7:21 pm

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away, …

This is probably one of the most successful movie franchises on the face of the planet. Star Wars is the brain child of George Lucas, and has changed the face of sci-fi forever.


This epic saga features a powerhouse cast, imaginative writing, gripping story-telling, and more feels than the universe can hold. Harrison Ford got his break here in his role as Han Solo, and his success paved the way to his next leading man role as Indiana Jones. It has also created iconic characters, and has inspired writers, artists, and fans all over to develop its Universe further. The phrase “may the Force be with you” now stands toe-to-toe with the Vulcan greeting sign. This series now boasts a line of video games, home furnishings, school supplies, costumes, food items, toys, and even a religion. Yep, Jedi is now a legal and accepted religion that can be put on your driver’s license. Just go easy when you use the force on anyone.

Three Movies That Traumatized Us As Kids

Category: Arts And EntertainmentJonette @ 4:17 pm


Most of us recall our favorite cartoons fondly – ah yes, childhood was a sweet thing indeed. The cartoons and movies we watched were tales of good versus evil, where the evil witch/ stepmother/ mastermind is punished, the kind and beautiful princess/leading lady gets together with her Prince/Captain/ General Charming, and the protagonists (whoever they actually are) live happily ever after, the end.

However, a number of movies in our childhood, albeit their stories told very compellingly, have left us with a few sleepless nights and deep, terrible questions haunting our minds. Here are three of those movies, and their traumatizing moments.

1)       Bambi – This is pretty much a shoe-in for such a list. It all starts out happy and cheerful, the sweet, gentle mother, the happy landscape, and Bambi’s fun friends. And just like that, Bambi’s mother is shot by a hunter, and a forest fire threatens our hero and all the members of his community.

2)       Old Yeller – It’s a classic tale of the everlasting bond of friendship between a boy and his dog, out in the wild open prairie  —  until the dog is bitten by a rabid wolf in an effort to save his human family. Old Yeller is penned to observe him for rabies symptoms. Soon, the dog growls and threatens to harm the lad, and with a heavy heart, the father shoots their trusted and loyal canine friend. Arm yourself with a box of tissues when you watch this movie.

3)       The Neverending Story – Might, Magic, and Adventure rule the landscape of this film, made in epic proportions. Atreyu and his loyal steed Artax must journey through the lands of Fantasia to seek an answer that will save their dying Empress. Trudging through The Swamps of Sadness, Artax is soon overcome with hopelessness and woe, and begins to ever so slowly sink into the mire. Atreyu pleads, cajoles and even snarls at the horse to keep moving, but alas, his friend disappears into the bog.

Indiana Jones, Icon of Manliness

Category: Arts And EntertainmentJonette @ 7:45 pm

Indiana Jones is a well-known and well-loved movie franchise. Its name is synonymous with high adventure, historical relics, death-defying stunts, and snappy, crisp dialogue. The franchise has had four box office successes, and has earned its place in the Hollywood Hall of Fame.

The eponymous Dr. Jones himself has become an icon of manliness, and his silhouette is unmistakeable and ever recognizable. Many men want to be him, and don’t hesitate to snap up a brown fedora reminiscent of Indie’s ever hardy hat. All it takes is a dusty brown fedora hat, an adventurer’s jacket, and a bull-whip to get some women a little hot and bothered. (Plus points of you can give them that “Indie stare” from beneath said fedora’s brim.) Lego also made the right move to create a toy line based on Indie’s adventures and the colorful characters he’s worked and clashed with, making Lego a hit with kids and adults alike.

Toy Story 3

Category: Box Office RecordsKitch @ 8:00 am


Arguably the best of the trilogy, Toy Story 3 is the fitting finale to the legendary movies by Director Lee Unkrich. If you are one of the millions around the world who has seen this movie, I am sure you’ve shed a tear or two during the end.  Toy Story 3 centers around Andy leaving for college and letting go of his old toys to donate at a day care. It’s the story about coming of age and the pangs that goes with it. It is funny, clever and retains the warm sense of love and joys of youth.

The box office hit produced by Pixar and released by Walt Disney Pictures was nominated for 5 Academy Awards and won the Best Animated Picture and Original Song. It is also the highest grossing film among the trilogy earning more than 1 Billion USD worldwide. TIME also named Toy Story 3 as the best movie of 2010. 99% of critiques in Rotten Tomato gave it a possible review.

An intelligent blockbuster in Inception

Category: Box Office Records,Worldwide Box Officeadmin @ 11:54 am

Inception’s amazing performance in the box office is a great indicator that a “thinking” movie can still rake in lots of money in the box office if it is well made.

The Christopher Nolan-directed movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio raked in $531,000,000 worldwide, which makes it a certified blockbuster. A lot of people watched it more than once, mainly due to the very interesting premise of the movie. Of course, the action sequences, which are quite well executed, were also a big draw to audiences. Inception’s crazy plot actually enticed audiences to check it out instead of the anticipated reaction, which is to shun it because it will prevent audiences from leaving their brains at the door. Kudos to Nolan for making a relatively intelligent movie that did not alienate the audience.

Box Office Revenues Up Thanks to Eclipse, the Last Airbender and Toy Story

Category: Box Office Revenue,Weekend Box Officeadmin @ 11:34 am

It’s still very early in July but the box office is getting fatter by the moment thanks to vampires, an avatar, and old toys.

“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” not surprisingly dominated the box office during its debut weekend for a 3-day run of $68.5 million. Though it did not beat “New Moon’s” record run, it is still more than respectable, especially since it is expected to stay on top for at least a few more weeks.

The number two spot was claimed by “The Last Airbender”, which despite a lot of criticism before it came out, still got a respectable showing of $40.7 million for the weekend. True to the cartoon series or not the special effects was still awesome!

The number three spot in the weekend box office was claimed by “Toy Story 3″, showing just how much people loves Woody and Buzz, earning $30.2 million on its 3rd weekend. The film sure has great drawing power having earned $109 million worth of tickets during their opening weekend, for a total 3-week run of $289 million.
