Movie review: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’

By Ashley Bergner
Box Office Buzz

846011 KS_New_transformersBy this point, the “Transformers” franchise seems pretty much bulletproof. Despite harsh critical reviews (the latest has a particularly scathing score of 16 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), the movies always pull in large amounts of money at the box office. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” easily beat the competition this weekend, earning $100 million so far.

And yes, I must confess, I contributed to that $100 million this weekend.

By Ashley Bergner
Box Office Buzz

296145 KS_New_spideyAlthough the summer movie season officially kicks off this weekend with the release of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” in theaters, in some ways it feels like blockbuster season has already started. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” served as an early kick-off on April 4, pulling in a huge $95 million opening weekend in the U.S. and earning praise from both critics and fans. However, there are plenty more big movies still to come (it will be interesting to see if they can top the Cap’s strong performance, though) — and there will be several wild cards, as well. Here are some of the movies getting the most buzz this summer: Continue reading “Blockbuster season forecast: 2014 summer movie preview” »

Ratchet Retrocast Episode 14 – There is no RetroCast, Only Pool

Ratchet Retrocast Ep 14Welcome to the Ratchet Poolcast! Travelling back in time to July, we follow Ratchet’s long-standing conspiracy about the pool episode in ’80s-everything. We are joined by Talloolah Love, the burlesque performer responsible for Pin-ups by the Pool and the Glamour Geek Revue coming to you this Dragon Con, and an enthusiast for all things retro. We discuss more than 20 cartoons and live action shows that feature girls in bikinis or boys in trunks airing in and around the 1980s. CD rediscovers Gummi Bears and finds the ThunderCats nudes, Q mimics the voice of Seaspray (the aquatic Transformer), Ratchet almost had another date with someone famous, and Talloolah prefers Marianne to Ginger. In Achievement Unlocked we chat about buzz Alden’s right hook, LotR, and Wonder Woman. Our Steampunk Quarter Hour features Gabriel Colbaugh of the Las Vegas Steampunk Tea Society!

The enthusiasm of this poolcast is brought to you be the adult beverage industry.
