The 10 Lowest Box Office Openings Of Movies Released In January (According To Box Office Mojo)

January is infamously known as one of the worst months for the box office, with movie studios having a tendency to use it as a "dump month" to release their titles that they have little to no confidence in, or if they want to test the waters with a wider release for last year's prestige picture. RELATED: The 10 Biggest Movie Reboot Box-Office Bombs Of The Decade (According To Box-Office Mojo) But there are some movies that fall even below the already low expectations of a January release, prov

10 Funniest Quotes From Curb Your Enthusiasm's Season 10 Premiere

In honor of HBO's hit comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm and its return to its new tenth season, we look at ten of the most outrageous, unfiltered, over-the-top one-liners dropped in this season's premiere.

COLOR OUT OF SPACE: An Unsatisfactory Mix Of Lovecraft & B-Movie Horror

On paper this movie may sound like a delicious recipe for some good old fashioned fun, but Richard Stanley’s Color Out of Space ultimately ends up stuck in a losing battle, struggling to fully embody the perfectly old-fashioned B-movie body horror flick it tries so hard to be.

But if you went up there on stage and said Louis Le Prince, your only hope would be that they ha

SPIES IN DISGUISE: A Perfectly Average Send-Off To A Decade Of Computer Animation's Coming Of Age

What better way to cap off a decade full of flashy and colorful computer animated family fare than one last flashy and colorful computer animated family fare? Spies in Disguise, the latest outing from the studio behind Ferdinand, Rio, & way too many Ice Age movies, pairs Will Smith and Hollywood’s hot commodity Tom Holland in a perfect one-liner of a plot idea: What if James Bond’s Q accidentally turns 007 into a pigeon, and the two of them have to work together to fight the bad guy under these

The Era of Underwhelming Pixar Sequels: TOY STORY 4 vs. INCREDIBLES 2

Toy Story 4 has as big a cast of characters as Incredibles 2, but with the distinct advantage in knowing what story it wants to tell, and to whom the story belongs. In doing so, we look back on the very barebones basics of not only what made Pixar’s movies so great, but any movie you still remember all these years later. Every classic, timeless movie – whether it’s science fiction or romantic comedy – has a great protagonist. And that protagonist is only as great as the story they’re in. And th
