  2. Box Office Mojo Site Disappears Into IMDb source: variety.com Not much of an article, it's shown below, but there are active commenters below the article at the article link location. BoxOfficeMojo.com has vanished with the site redirecting to Amazon.com’s IMDb. The Box Office Mojo site was acquired by Amazon in late 2008. Reps for Amazon were not immediately available for comment. The free Box Office Mojo site was widely used by the movie industry for up-to-date box office results along with historical data and release dates of upcoming titles. It was founded in 1999 by Brandon

  4. From Melissa September 4, 2014 “It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother. Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated. My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I k
  5. Anberlin Releases Final Album Lowborn (Tooth & Nail news Tuesday, July 22, 2014) Anberlin is an odd band for me and they just released their last album a few weeks ago. I was never sure if I liked them. So they will remain that way in my mind I suppose. I like certain songs a lot but not whole albums. My favorite Anberlin release, and can say I like it, isn't a normal album, it's Lost Songs, a compilation of demos, rarities, and covers. At the other end of taste the CD Blueprints for the Black Market was playing today and I thought, this is too repetative, and the boring stuff is also
  6. Attatched PDF "Motion Picture Association of America’s 2013 Theatrical Market Statistics Report" US/Canada Summary • 2013 U.S./Canada box office was $10.9 billion, up 1% compared to $10.8 billion in 2012, and up 3% from five years ago.

  7. A list of 19 successful big budget films since 2008 that would be domestic failures without foreign sales. But with foreign sales accounting for about 70% of all sales, these films grossed at least twice their production budgets, most by comfortable margins.

  8. National Velvet is a first rate movie. I saw that last night for my first Liz Taylor film, not knowing the child actress was Taylor before a month ago, thinking it was just another children's film mostly for girls that a female friend and mother told me was good. It's too good for the poor image DVD it's on, hard to believe this isn't redone onto Blu-ray. While growing up, if Taylor was mentioned in media, my mom would bring up her many marriages in an unfavorable tone. That's all I knew. Now I'm hoping to watch, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and A Place in the Sun, sometime down the road. She mad
  9. I found Darkman in a used DVD bin for $1 and picked it up this week though never heard of it before, doing so based on its cool looking DVD cover, low price, and one review looked up at the time in a VideoHound's Golden MovieRetriever volume I carried (bought used too). Smart phones with wifi would come in handy in those situations to get film reviews but you can't buy used smartphone service so what good is it? Don't think too hard about that. Later I discovered the film is directed and written by the same guy who directed and wrote the Spiderman trilogy 2002-2007, Sam Raimi. So that mad
  10. Today is MLK day in the USA. Seems a worthy day for the film Mississippi Burning 1988, Gene Hackman, Willem Dafoe, directed by Alan Parker who is British. I found no thread or comments on it. I borrowed it from a library and thought it was excellent. Very engaging. It won an Oscar for Best Cinematography, director of photography Peter Biziou. The British Academy Film Awards gave BAFTA Film Award wins to Editing, Cinematography and Sound. Numerous nominations for acting and directing. Overall 19 wins and 19 nominations. Has anyone seen this civil rights film, if yes, what do you like or di
