Movie Hits, Misses and Bombs for Jan – June of 2016

#ODMovies, #BoxOfficeGold, #BoxOfficeBombs, #IMDB

Here are my picks for the Hits, Misses and outright Bombs for the 1st half of 2016 in no specific order. Note this is not all the movies just ones I feel are notable. Also I have NOT seen any of this movies, I am basing everything on trailers, summary and personal vibes about it.

  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Hit, I have read the book and it was interesting. I think it will be a sleeper hit and soon to be cult classic.
  • Kung Fu Panda 3 – Miss, I think Po has ran his course and Dreamworks needs to stop milking this. Before they bomb it so hard that it kills the franchise (hint remenber Sherk and Ice Age)
  • Dirty Grandpa – Bomb – Didn’t Jackass already do this badly.
  • The 5th Wave – Miss – Don’t ask me how something that sounds so good go wrong, but my vibes are telling me its not going to click.
  • Fifty Shades of Black – Bomb – Sorry your days of glory Wayne brothers are over and have been over since Scary Movie 2.
  • Zoolander 2 – Miss – Sadly it will be a hit mainly due to Ben Stiller fans.
  • Embrace of the Serpent – Hit – It will be great for those willing to invest the time and brainpower into peeling back the layers.
  • The Other Side of the Door – Hit – Rack it up with the Ring, Grugde and Insidious. Hopefully they won’t kill it with sequels that destroy the mythos of the first movie
  • Zootopia – Miss – Packed full of sugary goodness for the kiddies, embedded adult jokes its a paint by the numbers cash machine family movie.
  • Triple 9 – Miss – Another gangs and dirty cops paint by the numbers cash machine. Hellywood needs to breathe some fresh air and step away from the Kool-Aid
  • 10 Cloverfield Lane – Miss – J.J. Adams is another one that needs to understand his glory days are over.
  • The Divergent Series: Allegiant – Miss – Its been downhill since the begining and I don’t think this is going to go any better.
  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Hit – Its going to be good, but the bad news is I think they are going to over the top to build a franchise. Which is what they are trying to do.
  • Money Monster – Hit – I think its going to be a sleeper. Its going to stay under the radar then BAMM!!
  • The Jungle Book – Miss – Sadly even with its star power in front and behind the camera I do not think its going to do live action well.
  • Barbershop: The Next Cut – Bomb – Adding females to the cast does not help. Look at the Karate Kid.
  • The Huntsman Winter’s War – Miss – If this was a TV Special I would make it a Hit but it just doesn’t have the power to hit it home on the big screen.
  • Ratchet and Clank – Bomb – Video Games rarely make good movies, my brains where oozing out just watching the trailer.
  • Nine Lives – Bomb – People switching bodies or turning into something else type movies should be BANNED and BURNED
  • Captain America: Civil War – Hit – It looks good, but I sense the franchise is on thin ice. They have made some mis-steps if not fixed I think where this is all heading will be for naught.
  • The Angry Birds Movie – Bomb – See what I said about Ratchet and Clank
  • X-Men: Apocalypse – Hit – This round of X-Men movies is hitting all the right notes. However I feel the end is nigh for this round. But its going out on a high note unlike Batman the Dark Knight Rises.
  • Alice Through the Looking Glass – ??? – It happens rarely its like sitting down to poker with a card shark. Very hard to read, very hard to tell
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – Bomb – I smell another Ninja Rap on this one. Sorry turtles its shellshock
  • Now You See Me 2 – Miss – So much going for it, but like the first one. It falls short
  • Warcraft – Hit – Its a summer blockbuster with a popcorn plot. I don’t think its going to draw much more other than WOW players.
  • Finding Dory – Miss – Do we really need another trip to the sea. When is Hellywood going to learn one shots are good making sequels kills movies and destroys the first one.
  • Independence Day: Resurgence – Bomb – Do we need another ID4 Hell no.
