Monday Mixer: 'Kong' is the 'King' of the box office

2 weeks ago

What if we matched each year's films bracket-style for the Oscars? Think back to last year. You have the number seeds of La La Land and Moonlight in first round matchups with Nine Lives or Ben-Hur.

What's the old saying? One bad apple spoils the bunch? Well, there are plenty of things being said about the 89th Academy Awards this morning, but the one that everyone will be talking about for years is how it ended.

I know that it's a right of passage of being a parent, but nothing really prepares you for your child needing medical attention. Actually, with my genes, I'm surprised that it's taken my son three whole years before he finally hurt himself to the point of needing to see a...

This was certainly a peculiar weekend at the box office. Technically, it is a holiday weekend, but instead of a bevy of high-profile films debuting, this weekend was filled with dumping ground movies that January is known for.
