‘CinemAddicts’ Showdown: ‘Loving’ (Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga)

Anderson and I have such different tastes in movies (we’re pretty much night and day), and even when we love a film, we’ll actually dig it for different reasons. The idea behind CinemAddicts showdown is to spotlight a film that we both completely disagree on, and more importantly we’d love to hear your thoughts on the movie. First up is director Jeff Nichols’ acclaimed feature Loving!

‘Moana’ Primed For A Breakout Box Office Weekend

MOANA’S MISSION — Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) may be a demigod—half god, half mortal, all awesome—but he’s no match for Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho), who’s determined to sail out on a daring mission to save her people.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was the big winner last weekend with a $76 million take.  Considering the film came from the mind of Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, it was a no-brainer that the Eddie Redmayne headlined project would be a hit. The movie’s reign at the top, however, should be supplanted  by the most popular “Rock” in Hollywood.
