'Easy Rider' Hippie Stars Hopper and Fonda Had Lifelong Feud Over Money

Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the release of "Easy Rider," the low-budget ($360,000) feature that made a fortune ($41 million), changed Hollywood forever, and mythologized the counter-culture. The late Dennis Hopper directed; he also co-starred and wrote the screenplay with Peter Fonda (who produced). Jul 15, 2014 10:53 AM PT

5 Movies Rotten Tomatoes Got Horribly, Terribly Wrong

It's a shame that like the rest of the media, film reviewers are largely made up of those completely out of touch with the everyday American. There are exceptions, but too few to mention. Eventually, the Left corrupts every institution it touches by making it a single-minded clique that shuns the non-conformist. Give a positive review to Dinesh D'Souza's "America" and you are suspect, risking alienation, and therefore your career. Jul 15, 2014 9:26 AM PT

Happy 26th Birthday to 'Die Hard'!

The success of "Die Hard" changed action moves for a decade: Sophisticated, sociopath Euro-trash villains like Hans Gruber were everywhere and the concept of one man trapped in a tight spot playing cat-and-mouse with the villain(s) was duplicated on a ship, a train, a bus, an airplane, a sports arena, and a mountain … and they were all awesome … and always bet on black.

Daily Beast: Is the Summer Blockbuster Dead? -- Me: No.

The Daily Beast looks at Summer 2014's terrible box office receipts and wonders aloud if the "Summer Box Office Is Dead?" The answer of course is, no. Jul 15, 2014 6:18 AM PT

Politico Hates the GOP - Part 11,385

Another day, another front page at the left-wing Politico where 5 of the 6 top stories attack Republicans. Look at the lead... Politico's targeting former-Vice President Dick Cheney like it's 2005. Jul 14, 2014 1:39 PM PT

Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain' Is Better Than Scorsese's 'Wolf of Wall Street'

For his efforts, Scorsese won critical acclaim, five Oscar nominations (including Best Picture and Best Director), and worldwide box office returns that totaled $392 million. Bay earned no Oscar nominations, only scored $95 million in worldwide box office returns, and plenty of scorn from critics who took it to him with middling to hostile reviews. Which is a shame because… Bay's film is the better of the two. Jul 14, 2014 12:32 PM PT

Box Office Disaster Continues: Weekend Down 26% Over Last Year

Despite a stellar $73 million opening weekend for the very well-reviewed "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," the overall weekend was down 26% over last year. This translates to the full year of 2014 slipping further and further behind 2013 (-5.2%). Jul 14, 2014 5:31 AM PT

Box Office: 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Zooms to $65 Million Debut

Late Friday, Box Office Mojo was pretty down on the chances "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" had for a $70 million debut. What a difference 12 hours makes. Thanks to lingering goodwill from 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," terrific reviews (I'm a fan), and no real competition. "Dawn" could land somewhere in the vicinity of $65 million by Monday morning. Jul 12, 2014 7:54 AM PT
