Say ‘I Don’t’ to ‘Shotgun Wedding’

It’s hard to believe that rom-com royalty — Jennifer Lopez (The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan) and Josh Duhamel (Life As We Know It, When in Rome) — have never made a movie together until Amazon Studio’s Shotgun Wedding. It makes sense to put these two together in a romantic movie as both are beautiful people with experience in the genre. But unlike their sappy romantic films that follow the same formula, Shotgun Wedding gets mixed in with some action and adventure with pirates, money laundering, and lots of explosions.

‘The Menu’ Celebrates Blu-ray Release with Blockbuster Style

When I first reviewed The Menu I initially liked, but didn’t love it. But after a bit more time, I’ve grown to like it more and more with each viewing. Which would probably bump it up from a B to a B+. So when we got the invite to celebrate the Blu-ray release for the movie, I couldn’t help but get excited to support an event that encourages multiple viewings of the terrific horror comedy!

Deconstructing ‘M3GAN’ with Screenwriter Akela Cooper

She Tiktok danced her way into our hearts, before brutally cutting down people with the blade of a paper cutter guillotine. Yes, I’m talking about M3GAN, the homicidal A.I. doll/singer/dancer that has taken the country by storm, grossing $30M domestic on a $12M budget this past weekend, and a 95% Rotten Tomatoes score. But where did the insanely loyal robot get her start? Only screenwriter Akela Cooper knows!

But then a movie like Plane comes along that’s just so horribly offensive and, simply put, bad, that it reinforces the stereotype of this being the month for garbage movies.
