On a somewhat quiet Friday at the box office, supernatural horror flick Ouija took first place ahead of Keanu Reeves action movie John Wick.Meanwhile, Bill Murray's St. Vincent did decent business in its nationwide expansion.Opening at 2,858 theaters, Ouija earned an estimated $8.3 million on Friday. That's a far cry from Annabelle's $15.5 million, but is above recent October horror movies Sinister ($7.4 million) and Carrie ($6.5 million). If Ouija ho ...

St. Vincent Review: Bill Murray Is Mesmerizing

Oct 24 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Bill Murray is Vincent and it’s safe to say he’s about as far away from being a Saint as can be when St. Vincent commences. And also, to describe his latest classic Murray character as a curmudgeon in this dark comedy is merely just the beginning of how we’d label this guy. He’s a laundry list of personality traits that are an utter delight for the audience to witness, but less than enjoyable for, frankly, anyone who has to meet him, or much less do ...

The second rumors began circulating of an all-female Ghostbusters, the first person people though of was Melissa McCarthy. The Bridesmaids star is the most popular female comedic actress out there right now and her inclusion seemed like a forgone conclusion. That got even more likely when her frequent collaborator, Paul Feig, signed on to direct. However, while McCarthy will probably, eventually, end up in the new Ghostbusters film, s ...
