The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
This week tests if anyone is still excited about The Hobbit franchise as it offers the release of The Desolation of Smaug. I don’t think I’ve thought about the film since it came out. Also, Twilight Time is releasing a series of their limited edition titles. Sweet.  

Box Office Roundup: 'Frozen' Returns to the Top Spot

Considering that much of America is suffering through a pretty nasty winter, it's surprising that audiences would turn out en masse for Frozen -- which could remind them of their current situation -- but the film has proved resilient, and has returned to the top spot after six weeks in release. It easily bested the only new picture out this weekend, Paranormal Activity: The Marked...

Horror movies often generate sequels, even if the original elements that made them scary to begin with get repeated to the point of numbness. The fourth Paranormal Activity sequel, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, is an easy watch, it's relatively entertaining, but the format is wearing a little thin.

Back in 2012, we reported to you that Paramount was looking to shore up their dwindling Paranormal Activity franchise box office receipts by releasing a spin-off/ side-quel that centered on more Catholicism-based haunting occurring to a group of Latino characters in a bid to cash in on the fact that Latino audiences make up 25% of all U.S. movie ticket sales.

After really exhausting a pretty thin premise (a ghost really likes this gal named Katie) with one fun original film followed by three sequels that barely attempt to construct a crude mythology (a family made a pact with a demon, there’s a lady-cult, something something, Katie gets possessed), all in an excuse to make the film over and over again in which people film doors getting slammed...

As we noted in 2012, Paramount has been planning on a Paranormal Activity 5 since last October, right after Paranormal Activity 4 was released to tepid reviews.  Such was their faith in the series, in which a California family is haunted for multiple generations by a pissy ghost who seems to have a thing for random door slamming and grabbing for attention...
