The Kids from Compton Win the Movie War

The kids Straight Outta Compton continued on that straight, successful path to the best seat at the box-office house this wild weekend at the movies while their less melodious competition realized there’s No Escape from office politics or groundbreaking entertainment. The War Room had moviegoers believing in something bigger than the Big Screen as those hardworking members of the Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation continued to enjoy their impossibly dangerous cinematic state. With summer winding down, the Sinister 2 among us sailed happily and horrifically along.

Our faith was found once again, rappers and the roguish united while the most Sinister scared even the toughest of talents. Despite their differences, all of our characters came together to put on the coolest of shows. A simple vacation, meanwhile, proved there’s just No Escape from the heat!

Which of our cool characters did you find provided the best escape?

  1. Straight Outta Compton $13.2 million.

Friends and Enemies Meet along the Movie Ranks

Will the harmonious news coming Straight Outta Compton this weekend be all about those friendly folks declaring, We Are Your Friends to the most welcoming of audiences? Perhaps enemies will be all the rage, as assassins attempt to take over the Big Screen in the form of that drug-induced American Ultra agent, who, after last week’s iffy debut, is especially interested in finding an ultra cushy spot at the box office. Perhaps he can hang out with Hitman: Agent 47, who had a bit more success at “killing” it with his audience. Will there be No Escape from all those foreign entities?

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation has been a particularly impossible nation to beat this summer. How long will his successful mission last? Might it take the truly Sinister 2 horrifically oust him from the movie community? Then there’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E., who’s been on one endless, mysterious mission since the 1960s. When will that mystery end?

Which of these tales will solve the most entertaining mystery for you this weekend?

Straight Outta Compton Continues to Conquer

The news Straight Outta Compton continued to be melodious and profitable this weekend as audiences discovered something Sinister 2 exorcise their right to horrifying entertainment. Attuned to the “horrors” of the storytelling world, Hitman: Agent 47 gave his assassin-loving audience 47 and then some reasons to check out his deadly flick. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, meanwhile, remained an impossibly nice place to visit (cinematically speaking) while The Man from U.N.C.L.E. remained committed to solving impossible mysteries from the 1960s and beyond

Leaving no stone unturned, our late-summer stars offered explosive, edge-of-your-seat entertainment to those daring enough to enter an action-packed movie theater.

Which of those killer tales did you dare to see?

Something Sinister this way Comes

Will the kids Straight Outta Compton continue on the straight and narrow path to the box office this weekend or with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. discover a mysterious way to elbow past the gangster rappers? Can star power carry on the Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation for our nation of moviegoers or will the Fantastic Four make the ultimate, albeit unlikely, comeback? Hitman: Agent 47 is on one killer mission, ready to metaphorically murder anyone in his lethal path. Speaking of oddball assassins, audiences can expect an American Ultra-packed adventure at the movies, where even the most unassuming characters are capable of being cool killers.

What will The (movie) Gift you give yourself this weekend involve, murdering men of mystery, adrenalin junkies, music lovers or Marvel makers? Most importantly, would it be considered Sinister 2 search for a bit of benevolent girl power against all those battling bad boys?

From cool to creepy, which story will hold the most power for you?

Moviegoers take the Road Straight Outta Compton

All of the cinematic news fit to print came Straight Outta Compton this weekend, as youthful energy, and questionable music in the form of gangster rap, emitted straight outta big screens nationwide, causing the biggest (and loudest) stir at the box office. Although musically-challenged, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. solved a bit of the mystery surrounding successful movies (escapist entertainment, snacks included) as he led the movie community on a grand, nostalgia-inspiring adventure. Along for that adventurous ride were the citizens of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, who were busy spreading the word, to anyone who would listen, that Tom Cruise can still pack a movie theater. The sadly-less popular Fantastic Four found little safety in numbers as they continued to search for larger, Marvel-loving crowds. Luckily, The Gift of priceless entertainment has never been easier to find (thank you, IMAX).

Looking for a cool, summer retreat? It’s no mystery where the best summer escape led to this weekend.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E Meets the Kids from Compton

After a lukewarm opening weekend, will those Fantastic Four offer folks a fantastic time at the movies, using their super powers to save innocent moviegoers from insipid entertainment? Tom Cruise and troop just  might perform the Mission Impossible: (within the) Rogue Nation and trump the fearless foursome once again at the box office. Ant-Man is still in the heroic picture but should he prepare himself for the inevitable stomping coming his way? The Man from U.N.C.L.E. may be new in town but his plan includes giving them all a run for their movie money (when he’s not busy fighting crime, of course) while the also new-to-the-scene kids from Straight Outta Compton intend on offering a different kind of tunes currently coming from the somewhat more mature Ricki and the Flash. Summer continues to present cinematic spectators with The Gift that keeps on giving!

Sadly, summer will be over in a flash but before its swan song, perhaps what we all need is a good Vacation, filled with a bit of magic, plenty of mystery, music, misadventures and madcap family fun.

Which madcap adventure will you partake in this weekend?

The Rogue Nation Continues to Rule

Did you have the most Fantastic time at the movies this weekend? Those youthful Fantastic Four sadly did not have as awesome a time as intended, as their superpowers were not super enough to rule the box office, leaving the alternate movie universe open for the Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation to once again take the lead. Following all that high-octane action, a relaxing Vacation was most certainly in order, although not achieved for those troublesome Griswolds, whose road trip down memory lane hit a number of nasty potholes. The troubled Ant-Man was still around, assisting moviegoers indecisive about which movie route to follow (using his tiny stature to rise above those storytelling roadies). The sounds of a cinematic summer filled the air, while a long-held secret brought The Gift, of sorts, entertainingly stopping thrill seekers in their tracks.

Which of our showstoppers caused you to pause this weekend?
