  Two New Useful Websites for Movie-Goers

MovieStinger.com

MovieStinger.com

Have you ever been to a really suspenseful movie, and you just have to pee, but you don’t want to miss anything? We all have. When Scream 2 came out, I thought there was a lull in the action and it was safe to pee. [SPOILER ALERT] It wasn’t safe to pee – I missed Dewey’s “death” and spent the next ten minutes wondering where he went.

Now you don’t have to wonder when is the best time to pee during a movie. Before you go, visit RunPee.com. RunPee gives you an approximate elapsed time and scene cues and even tells you how much time you have to get back to your seat. There’s even a summary of the action you’ll miss. It looks like the site is frequently updated as all the recent movies – Up, Terminator: Salvation and Drag Me to Hell, for example – are available.

RunPee was found on Lifehacker. If only it were available as an iPhone application…

Update 7/7/09: Now it is available as an iPhone App! Click here for more info.

The other really useful site – also found on Lifehacker – is MovieStinger.com. MovieStinger answers the pesky question that plagues every hardcore movie fan – to stay or not to stay? Sometimes movies have post-credits scenes (like Iron Man and the recent 3 endings on X-Men Origins: Wolverine), but it’s hard to guess if a movie will have an extra scene or not.

MovieStinger is kept up-to-date and lists movies and if they have scenes after the credits, extras during the credits, or nothing. Now you don’t have to sit in your seat and look for funny names in the credits waiting for a cut scene that will never come.




  Star Trek already made $7million
Posted by: Mike on May 8th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Star Trek 2009Variety is reporting that last night’s late night showings of Star Trek have already brought the movie’s weekend total to $7 million, domestically.

Estimates say that if the film pulls in $25million today (which is extremely likely) that it’ll break the $80million mark for its opening weekend.

Chances of Wolverine holding the number one spot two weeks in a row are pretty bleak at this point.

Wolverine opened on roughly 4,100 screens, and did just over $75million on opening weekend, last week.

Star Trek is opening on 3,800 screens, and is estimated to do over $80million. Seems like a good weekend to be part of the Star Trek franchise.

We’re planning on hitting the first showing in the morning, and will have our review up early tomorrow afternoon.

What about you? When are you planning on seeing it?  Or are you not planning on seeing it at all?




  Deadpool Origins Green Lit!
Posted by: Mike on May 6th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Those of you who didn’t like the Wolverine Origins film, may have still enjoyed Ryan Reynolds being Van Wilder being Wade Wilson.  When I say that, it’s because Ryan Reynolds plays himself in everything he’s in, and himself is Van Wilder. And I love it.

The best news you’re going to hear all day, is that Fox has green lit a “Deadpool” spin off, based on the opening weekend of Wolverine.  That means sometime next year, we’ll get to see an entire movie of Wade/Deadpool, and not 18 seconds of him that we got in Wolverine.

Press release from MTV News below:

MTV News has received official word that there is also a “Deadpool” solo movie in active development, with “Wolverine” actor Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as Wade Wilson, Marvel’s mutant assassin. According to a source close to Fox, the “Deadpool” spin-off film will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel, and will be “a complete exploration of this unique character — his origins, his emergence as the Merc with the Mouth.” The studio is currently seeking writers for the project.

Is this not the best news you’ve head so far today, or what?!




  Wolverine sequel, already?
Posted by: Mike on May 5th, 2009 1 Comment »

A ton of people are reporting about this, this morning, so I thought I’d chime in.

Those of you who saw Wolverine over the weekend, probably saw the “Logan in a bar” ending, after the credits.  He’s apparently in Japan, and doesn’t know who he is.

According to some “inside information”, the studio may develop that as the next X-Men Origins movie. Not another character, as we previously believed, but as another Wolverine movie.

Is that what happens when your flick opens at $87 million? You immediately want to another one?  While the film made a boatload of money, it’s not getting all that positively reviewed.  Is that what they want? Another money maker, that leaves people with a less than optimal taste in their mouths?




  Wolverine cuts up competition
Posted by: Mike on May 4th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

For those of you living under a rock, Wolverine opened this past weekend.  While some people have said they hated it, others said it was pretty good.

Christine didn’t hate it, but it wasn’t her favorite. (Read her review.)

What is evident, is that the movie’s marketing worked.  Whether or not you liked it, chances are, you saw it.  Wolverine pulled in a staggering $87 million over its opening weekend.

That’s more than the rest of the top ten movies of the weekend, combined.

What did you think? Did you see it? Was it up to snuff?




  Hugh Jackman Is a Nice Guy
Posted by: Mike on May 1st, 2009 1 Comment »

Hugh Jackman is not only cool, but he’s apparently a nice guy, too.

TMZ got hold of a receipt from a bakery in Tempe, Arizona, where Hugh apparently bought breakfast for a bunch of people who’d lined up for the Wolverine premiere last weekend.

He spent just ver $4,300 on breakfast for them. If that doesn’t make him a nice guy, I don’t know what does.

Check out the receipt, here. (Warning, link is to a PDF.)




  Wolverine Alternate Ending Details
Posted by: Mike on Apr 30th, 2009 6 Comments »

I’m sure by now you’ve heard that Wolverine will have three different endings, depending on where you see the movie.  This isn’t a ploy to get you to drive all over the country to get to see all three of them.  Rest assured the “movie” only has one ending.

You’ll sit through Wolverine in its entirety before the “alternate” bits happen.  These very short endings come after the credit, and are reportedly all just ties in to whichever movie they decide to make next.

They’re not important to the story of the film you’ve just watched.  It’s just the studio’s idea to open the door for the next movie in the franchise, of which there’s apparently three different ones.

I’ve spoken with a few people that have seen the endings already, and the feedback I’ve gotten is pretty negative about all three.  They’re being referred to as “sucky ending 1″, “less sucky ending” and “ending that didn’t suck as much as the other two.”

I plan on checking out the film on Saturday morning, and will report back as to what I thought after that.  I’m not super excited about it, because I didn’t really love the X-men trilogy, but the trailer looks decent enough to go check out.




  Second Wolverine TV Spot hits
Posted by: Mike on Feb 17th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

The second spot aired late last night, and made its way online shortly thereafter. It’s called “Brothers”, and further proves that this movie’s going to kick a whole lotta ass, and take a whole lotta names.
