    Weekend Openings (July 20-22)

    I won’t waste anyone’s time with this installment of Weekend Openings.  No pussyfooting around or trying to disguise the only new release worth discussing today: Arguably the most anticipated film of the year, The Dark Knight Rises brings Christopher Nolan’s massively successful and influential Batman trilogy to an end, this time with...

    Weekend Openings (July 13-15)

    Even as commonplace as it has become in today’s moviegoing climate, I am still amazed from time to time at just how far some studios will go to milk a potential franchise for all its worth.  When I saw the first Ice Age ten years ago, I would have never guessed that...

    Weekend Openings (July 6-8)

    *Sigh* You guys…sometimes I don’t have the energy for this.  Well, just because I personally cannot muster up any excitement whatsoever for the newest releases this weekend doesn’t mean I can neglect my duty to you, dear readers.  Without further ado… Look, I’m not naïve.  I understand that moviemaking is a business,...

    Weekend Openings (June 29-July 1)

    Looks like this weekend will go down in the books as one of pleasant surprises, both financially and quality-wise.  Whether that will translate into Oscar nominations may happen for at least one of them… Steven Soderbergh and Channing Tatum take us into the world of male strippers in Magic Mike, about a...

    Weekend Openings (June 22-24)

    Madagascar 3 finally gets a worthy opponent for dominance of the family friendly market, and it could be the biggest one of the year: Pixar’s Scottish adventure Brave swoops into theaters like the cool highland breeze of…okay, I’ll stop.  Starring Kelly MacDonald as a young princess who defies an ancient family custom,...

    Weekend Openings (June 8-10)

    Oh my, what is this?  One of the most anticipated movies of the year seems to be causing a bit of a stir if the early responses are an indication of what’s to come when everyone sees it (and certainly everyone from Awards Circuit will/has)… That’s right; Ridley Scott’s long awaited sort-of-Alien­-prequel-but-not...

    Weekend Openings (1-3 June)

    If this summer is considered a “competition” among the major studio releases of a year, then June, August and possibly July are going to be rather boring to box office hounds because literally nothing can touch what will most likely be the biggest film of the entire year.  But hey, that gives...

    Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 5/27)

    Another week has come and gone at The Awards Circuit. This week was especially important because we began our first ever ACCA TV. I hope everyone has voted for their favorites in television, because your nominations will be announced very soon! Personally, I absolutely have no idea which shows or performances jive...

    Weekend Openings (May 11-13)

    So last week, I made what I thought was a rather bold prediction that The Avengers might actually beat Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2’s opening weekend record with just over $170 million!  Gosh, could it really happen?  Well, yes…and then some.  So with that, let’s get some obvious things...

    Weekend Openings (May 4-6)

    And so, in what seemed like an impossible dream to just about every comic book geek in the world, the first-ever major superhero crossover film finally opens in America today.  There’s really no point in pretending that this won’t absolutely kill at the box office this weekend, it’s just a matter of...

    Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 4/29)

    Wow, where do I even begin? This was the James Cameron of weeks here The Awards Circuit. We delivered big, and as a result our success was tantamount to Camerons’ Avatar and Titanic in my book. As you can see, The Awards Circuit has undergone a huge transformation, evolving what you all...

    Weekend Openings (April 27-29)

    Almost there, folks.  One week from today will be the official start of the Summer Movie Season: Franchise Flicks, Explosions, CGI, the whole works.  As we say goodbye to the general dumping ground (with the occasional peppering of gems between them), we say hello to four new films debuting today: A film...

    Weekend Openings (April 20-22)

    *Gasp* could it be?!  The Hunger Games may be knocked off #1 this weekend?  Hey, it had to happen sometime, and while the likely champ is a far cry from Gary Ross’ high concepty teen sci-fi thrilliness, Lost in Space and Dear John didn’t scream usurper when they were on the horizon,...

    Weekend Openings (April 13-15)

    Did I just hear a cannon?  It looks like Gary Ross will not be returning to direct Catching Fire, even though The Hunger Games will probably clean up at the box office for the fourth week in a row.  It will be challenged by three new releases, one of which is apparently...

    Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 4/1)

    It was another momentous week here at The Awards Circuit. Kicking things off, we began with Joey Magidson’s positive review of Kung-Fu Action Cinema’s newest treasure, ‘The Raid: Redemption.’ Despite the film containing 25% story and 75% action, it certainly proved more rewarding a view for Joey than its bizarre title. The...

    Weekend Openings (March 30-April 1)

    This weekend, the odds will not be in favor of the two opening titles vying against The Hunger Games at the box office.  Strong word-of-mouth and momentum of ticket sales throughout the weekdays could see it score a jackpot that may even challenge Avatar’s record for second-weekend grosses. That’s not to say...
