Movie Buzz: 4/13

13 Apr

Well I don’t think anyone will be surprised to see The Hunger Games still holding a solid #1 spot grossing $469,838.0M worldwide.  American Reunion came in second grossing $47,0M worldwide and  Titanic 3D came in at third with $31,256 M.  Let’s see how they did and if they are worth the money!

Note: We only review films in wide release.  

American Reunion—R What’s the Buzz? Not great.  Critics disliked the film (no surprise) saying it was too cliche while consumers stated “if you can make it past the first twenty minutes its not so bad.” The Washington Post says, “An aggressively crass – and not especially funny – trip down memory lane, an attempt to recapture the sweetly ribald magic of the earlier film.”

So is it worth the money? Maybe so, Maybe Not!

Box office rank: 2

  • Film Critics Say: Metacritic- 50
  • rottentomatoes: 42% (rotten)
  • Consumers Say: Metacritic- 7.4 (positive)
  • rottentomatoes: 79%  (Maybe)

Titanic 3-D—PG13 –What’s the Buzz? Although many thought this film got off to a rocky start before it first originally opened.  Today this film is celebrated in all its glory with the addition of 3-D technology. Rollingstone says” How is Titanic in 3D? The answer is pretty damn dazzling. ”Consumers say, “its a classic.”

So is it worth the money? Big Yes!

    Referring to “American Reunion”, it’s a little painful how poorly the lower end of ‘90s acting celebrities was handled. I imagine they are now trying to save careers because there is so little pliable talent to choose from.
