Review: CREED (AKA ROCKY VII) Goes The Distance

"Which do you think will do better, this or Rocky?" That was the box office question posed to me by a fellow critic immediately following the advance screening of Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, which will open the same day as Creed....

AnarchyVision: Jason Gorber Talks TMNT, THE GIVER, EXPENDABLES 3 And More!

Loads of end-of-season flicks to talk about, including the truly egregious TMNT, the barely-better-than-the-last-one Expendables 3, YA dystopian romp The Giver, and a brief shout-out to Frank and Calvary.Video embedded below...

Review: THE EXPENDABLES 3 Isn't Execrable...Mostly

"It's better than the last one!" Faint praise, perhaps, but given that Expendables films don't aim very high, it's probably praise that will be graciously accepted for The Expendables 3. Probably. It's fair to say the entire Expendables franchise...

Kelsey Grammer Boards THE EXPENDABLES 3
