So Last Week
2016 Weekly Entertainment, Celebrity and Pop Culture Trivia Quiz.
Girls kissing, Olympic fall-out, the century's greatest and highly paid actors. Put on your pop culture thinkin' cap, here's our entertainment review quiz for the 34th week of 2016.
Friday Box Office Analysis
Do we root for the bad guy or the bad guy in this movie? Or is there a bad guy?.
Almost out of nowhere, we’ve got a big horror breakout in the form of Don’t Breathe, which earned $10 million on Friday - which, conveniently, is what it cost to make. In what used to be a much more frequent occurrence, this is the first horror breakout of the year and you have to credit the timing of a weak box office top ten as well as the rave reviews (87% Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes) for this one.

Weekend Forecast

Movie Review: War Dogs
People probably do this around Jonah Hill even when he doesn't have a gun.

Review: Florence Foster Jenkins
I'm ready for my next Academy Award nomination, thank you.
One looks at Florence Foster Jenkins with persistent curiosity...
Movie Review: War Dogs
What is it good for? Woof.
War Dogs establishes and maintains an aura of pitch-black, mordant cynicism from the opening frame until the end credits roll.
Review: Hell or High Water
No country for any men.
For the most part, the western genre seems content to be the realm of occasional throwbacks and modern re-imaginings.
