S.O.L. SOLO: BOMBS AWAY ON MEMORIAL DAY!

71% rating on the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the lowest score for a "Star Wars" film since "Attack of the Clones"..



The movie bombed this weekend, unable to muster up even the conservative numbers that studio executives had hoped for..

The movie took in $14.1 million at Thursday-night previews, a record for Memorial Day (beating "At World's End," which took in $13.2 million)

Disney had been predicting $115 million for the weekend. $101 mil later, the mouse is a bit red faced..

Yes, a strong movie for any other time. But not for STAR WARS. And maybe a bigger issue: Not for Memorial Day.

The weekend just ain't what it used to be when it comes to the summer movie kickoff season..

Maybe a new pattern?

Last year, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" opened over Memorial Day weekend and took in $78.4 million from Friday to Monday. That was just under its projections of $80 million to $85 million and the lowest opening for a "Pirates" movie since the first one, 2003's "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" ($46.6 million).

Solo Disney final

It is often a mistake to watch the weekend box office results for any judgement of a movie. But this is business.
And Disney made an effort to ensure their business for decades would be endless forays into the STAR WARS universe.. Toy lines.. spinoffs... sequels. Prequels.

And already? We seem done with it.

The magic of ROGUE ONE was that it was STAR WARS related, contained the storyline and respected the past. The newest sequels in the series lack a magic, one that ROGUE ONE briefly tapped into. And SOLO? .. The movie has been opening to less than great reviews.

The toy lines are going unsold at stores. Where toys are actually still sold.. 

Kids? They moved on. The majority of audiences for the STAR WARS movies this century are people who also attended last century.

Disney's biggest mistake may have been hubris. And now they are stuck with a movie from a galaxy too close to home..

Put this in the true horror category..

I am from PA. I know several people in this report.. I may even know several abuse victims.

This is the end.

The death of the great tax exempt church..

The blue-haired bakers who love the block parties are dying away...

The truth--with all its sordid details of abusive priests, sex rings, and pedophilia--all now out.

A long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”


The report begins with the followi…

Cool blend of horror movie characters with HE-MAN action figures

Horror movie fans who once played with HE-MAN toys in their childhood may have the perfect gift ready to be purchased: Horror icons in the shape and style of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE toys..

The toy line was unveiled by FUNKO at a toy fair.. it is called the SAVAGE WORLD HORROR LINEUP.



Reaction has been mixed.. But why? ... the nostalgia of the 80s coupled with hugely instrumental horror movie characters--all born during the same time period by the way ..

Even the packaging is similar to the containers that contained the HE-MAN toys of the 80s generation.

"He would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable," Jillette said. "I don't think he ever said anything in that room like 'African-Americans are inferior' or anything about rape or grabbing women, but of those two hours every other day in a room with him, every 10 minutes was fingernails on chalkboard."
