Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Kissing Booth vs On My Block 

Netflix’s THE KISSING BOOTH movies and “On My Block” series center on teenage friends navigating life and love, but the setting for each is a vastly different socioeconomic area in Los Angeles. It's a tale of two cities - white privilege and the underrepresented in the hood. "The Kissing Booth" has become a pop culture sensation while the other is popular with the YA crowd and critics but it's not getting the attention it deserves. Why the disparity?

The Movie Franchise Reboots That Paid Off - And The Ones That Didn’t

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Jurassic Park 

Beyond the standard model of sequels, the reboot of classic titles has dominated the agenda in the world of cinema since the turn of the century. Today, there are few big-name films from the 80, 90s and even 00s that haven’t been rebooted - or at least mooted.

 

The Reboot Gamble

Rebooting a classic film can be a major gamble. If the original was a big hit, as they often are, then the stakes are high as there’s a legacy to respect. And studio heads pondering a reboot will make calculations, and study the probabilities, the same way a top poker player might.

Most prefer to do their betting in a casino, but it seems many studio heads are much happier, instead, gambling with the legacy of some of their favorite titles. And much like at the roulette wheel, the margin between success and failure can be fine. The cast, the storyline and the production have to be perfect to satisfy the demand of long-standing followers of the franchise, while the balance between offering something new and staying faithful can be difficult to strike. And just like in a game of blackjack, the decision to stick with what you know or twist for something new can be crucial. In movie terms, sticking can help placate loyal fans, but you risk leaving cinema-goers feeling short-changed if you’re offering them something that isn’t too far removed from what they’ve already seen.

 

Batman Begins - Hit

Batman’s first big-screen outing came in 1943 and the title has been revisited on numerous occasions since then, with varying degrees of success. This 2005 release helped take the series into a darker direction that made it a hit with fans and critics alike.

Around the World in 80 days - Miss

The 2004 remake of the classic adventure novel was a flop with critics. Reviewers criticized the picture for having little to no resemblance to the original story, while its box office performance was exceptionally poor, making it one of the most expensive flops in recent history.

 

Jurassic World - Hit

A cult classic of 90s cinema, many were concerned when it was announced that the definitive dinosaur flick was set to be remade. But those fears proved to be unfounded. The 2015 remake has helped broaden the franchises's legacy to the extent that it spawned all manner of media spin-offs, which even includes its own themed slot game. Many prefer Betway for its casino bonus as a destination to play it with generous deposit matches for slots.

 

Alice Through The Looking Glass - Miss

This 2016 release attempted to capture the mystery, charm and magic of the original story written by Lewis Carroll. But while previous animated efforts by Disney have become classics, this live-action effort, starring Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway, didn’t fare so well on the big screen.

 

Beauty and the Beast - Hit

One of the big catalysts behind the recent trend for reboots, not all of Disney’s recent efforts have been duds. Their reboot of animated classic Beauty and The Beast provided the platform for Emma Watson produce an enchanting performance that helped enhance the title’s already weighty legacy.

So next time you hear upon hearing your favorite classic is getting a reboot, exert a groan lightly - while many have fallen by the wayside, others have hit the jackpot.

Three Memorable TV Series Set in Las Vegas

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Pawn Stars

Las Vegas is one of the most well-known places on the planet. Most people you’d ask who hadn’t already visited would probably tell you that they’d like to because Sin City literally has it all. This is one of the main reasons that we have seen huge box office hit movies filmed there, as well as memorable TV shows. That, and the fact Las Vegas is all glitz and glamour. People associate it with infinite riches but with wealth comes crime at times and this has helped with the plots of many shows and movies to hit out screens. In fact, some of these TV series themes have gone even further to become successful board, video and online slots games, together with a host of various types of memorabilia.

It will come as no surprise to see all sorts of weird and wonderful items to enjoy all based on TV shows, which can be found on Amazon, eBay and online casinos, like Unibet.

The Emoji Movie: The Aftermath

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

2017 has seen one more film added to the list of perplexing creations. Based on the cultural phenomenon formed by a humble social app, The Emoji Movie had great potential, if handled with original vision and wit. The plot is set in the city of Textopolis, where Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, heads out to become as normal as other emojis and their single expressions. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm that went into its development, such as casting award-winners James Corden (Into the Woods, 2014) and Ilana Glazer (Broad City, 2014-2018), as well as T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley, 2014-2017) and Anna Faris (I Give It a Year, 2013), was not enough to impress its more demanding audiences. Critics on Rotten Tomatoes pointed out, among other things, a weakness in taste, plot and purpose, apart from it being little more than a promotional tool. Even though the $179,535,817 global box office likely soothed Sony Pictures Animation’s wounded pride, the fact remains that this flop may have damaged any dreams of future productions of this kind.

When Hollywood Remakes Go Wrong

Mark Wahlberg in The Gambler

It’s often an unwritten rule that the originals are always better than the remakes. This seems to apply not just with music but with movies too. We’ve seen it many times where an old film gets remade to bring it into the modern era, only for it to fall flat on its face. Some people often question the reasoning behind trying to reinvent a classic, as why should anyone try and fix something that isn’t broken?

Movie Review: Transformers: The Last Knight - The Good, The Bad And The Cool

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Transformers The Last Knight Mark Wahlberg Laura Haddock 

The good news is TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT is an improvement over the last three TRANSFORMER movies, but the bad news is the connect-the-dots plot may fry your brain circuits by the end. The targeted movie crowd (young boys) will be distracted by the shiny toys and robots so they won't mind. Isabela Moner, a new human-sized Transformer and Sir Anthony Hopkins are nice additions to this tired franchise.
