Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesJeez Louise! Another “remake” of a production done countless times in the past! Holy crap, does “originality” no longer capture the imagination of the masses?

Hercules opens tonight, and is billed as a “revisionist take on the classic myth…” What? “Revisionist?” Isn’t that what they’re doing to our ENTIRE PRINTED HISTORY OF THE WORLD? They no longer have shame in anything anymore it seems.

Anyway – this “flick” has not really been reviewed, which typically means it’s horrible across the board (with the exception of professionally produced special effects). Yet 96% of the movie-going morons “want to see” this movie.

I do have to admit, that Dwayne Johnson is a likable, charismatic character in all his movies. He seems like a pretty good guy too, so I’m not bashing him whatsoever. He’s just another pawn in the game. My bet is that this movie will be on the shelves at your local Target store before the summer is over. What’s that, like nine weeks? At the very least, it will certainly be at the checkout “impulse buy” racks before Black Friday.

As a side note- we recently received a Blu-Ray copy of Under the Skin starring Scarlett Johansson, which we’ll watch one of these days when we have free time. Home movies on a sweet flat panel are just as good as dropping $50 or more on a night out at the “theater.”

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesThis weekend we have a violent sequel to a poorly rated movie series entitled “The Purge.” The concept is, that our ever-so-loving “government” gives 12 hours a year for everyone to commit any crime (including murder) without punishment. This follow-up is called The Purge: Anarchy.”

Let me get this out of the way first. 99% of the idiots that roam this earth automatically assume that “Anarchy” is equivalent to mayhem, murder, and “Mad Max” style lawlessness.

Thanks to repeated nonsense that is spewed out of our “media empire” out there, you’d be hard to convince anyone otherwise. However, if you had one single ounce of brain-matter, you’d know that NO, that is not the case. Anarchy is not “kill everyone, last man standing, planet of the apes, run for your lives.” What Anarchy truly is – is more like a “VOLUNTARY, COOPERATIVE” life. I’ll keep it at that for the moment. We’ll talk about that more one day.

Anyway – this sequel just does more to propagate FALSE pretenses about what “anarchy” really is. So I won’t give it much more than that. Propaganda and social conditioning. Avoid at all costs.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesHere we go. Another “re-hash” of a classic movie genre – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”

Oh boy. This movie has received almost overwhelmingly positive reviews from both audiences and critics. That can say a lot, depending on how you look at it. We watched the trailer – and hoped we could detect some common sense – but it was too vague to determine if there were hidden political and sociological “messages” embedded into this movie script (as there are most “mainstream” Hollywood productions.)

So we’ll leave our “prognosis” of this mental thrill-ride out of this equation at this time. We just pray there are still “critical thinkers” in our populace that are above the ape-like thinkers that actually exist in the wild today.

PS – that horrible “Tammy” movie is still in theaters. Proof positive there are STILL dim-witted mentally-enslaved morons meandering around our parts…

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesA new movie called Tammy is coming out this weekend, starring a large actress named Melissa McCarthy.

“Tammy is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint and, instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option-with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.”

But have any of you noticed the trend of “obese is good?” I see pigs on the covers of magazines promoting beauty, etc. It seems that the “industry” is doing everything in their power to make extreme obesity “acceptable.” It should NOT be.

Anyway, this movie will probably last one week here in Hoboken.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesHmmm. Maybe all the good ideas at Disney have been used up? Here’s Maleficent – a full movie based on the “villain” in Sleeping Beauty.

“Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.”

Again, reviews are mixed – but from what we gather (sans “effects,”) it’s a rather boring movie: “Imagine a Star Wars remake with the Emperor hugging Luke instead of trying to fry him with force lightning and you get the idea.”

Want to mimic our “entertainment” choice this weekend? Use the money for some tasty wine and enjoy the show Mother Nature gives us every day.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesContinuing at our local theater this week is the ever popular The Fault in Our Stars – but one new movie that might be particularly enjoyable is Jersey Boys, directed by Clint Eastwood, and based off the successful Broadway Play.

“Clint Eastwood’s big screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical tells the story of the four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic `60s rock group The Four Seasons. Their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the hit songs that influenced a generation, and are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical.”

The movie got mixed reviews from critics. No point in sharing them. You either like stories like this (sort of like the “made for TV” type biopics), or you don’t. I’m fairly certain people who want to see it – will.

PS – I still haven’t received this supposedly really badly reviewed Blu-Ray I’m dying to see and review! Will share that perhaps next week.
