2014 Big Movie Questions

Big Movie Questions of 2014  By: Matt Cummings
Read on to learn whether our Big Movie Questions of 2014 might need to be re-titled 'Top Movie Questions of 2015.'

With 2013 in the books, we're continuing a tradition here at SJF by looking forward to the big movie questions of 2014. And while last year provided us with entertaining answers to the questions we posed back in February, 2014 looks to have just as many. Without any fanfare whatsoever, we now present the Big Movie Questions of 2014.

Is 2015 already eclipsing 2014?

Take a look at 2015, and you'll see what could be the most impressive list of films to come in a single year: The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the as-yet-untitled Batman/Superman movie, Fast 7, and Mission: Impossible are but a few. Moviegoers are salivating for these tentpole titles, while ignoring the potentially bigger releases of 2014, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Maleficent

The Final Word: Top Domestic Movies of 2013

The Final Word: Top Domestic Movies of 2013 By: MattInRC
It's time to ruminate on the year that was, and seek some insight from the Movie Gods about 2014.

In a year that saw Hollywood act more like a rollercoaster than a business, we're frankly surprised to find ourselves saying the following: Hollywood broke box office records once again, taking in a staggering $10.92 billion in sales. But that success wasn't guaranteed entering the Summer season. Take a look at the top list from the end of Q2:


Oz The Great and Powerful $186,672,400Identity Thief $128,817,890Silver Linings Playbook $99,352,650Zero Dark Thirty $94,172,217Django Unchained $93,537,202Les Miserables (2012) $75,753,685The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey $74,210,420Mama $71,514,415Safe Haven $69,423,682A Good Day to Die Hard $66,393,000And then, Summer arrived:Iron Man 3 $405,435,000Man of Steel $248,660,000Oz The Great and Powerful $234,668,782Fast Six $233,313,000Star Trek Into Darkness $220,501,000The Croods $…

Our Worst Movies Of 2013. There Are Some Surprises

Our Worst Movies Of 2013  By: MattInRC
For every parade of elephants and giraffes that are 2013's top films, there's the janitors who cleanup behind them. Yes, the worst films of the year have brought up the rear, filling our lives with their uselessness and begging the question of why we bothered with them in the first place. These projects might have seemed like good ideas in their infancy but got horribly lost in production, and some of them were probably spoiled from the start, doomed to walk the Earth until the Ghost of Roger Ebert exorcised them to the next realm.
To be fair, our index of infamy is based on our own personal standards for taste or interest. We also looked at major Hollywood releases, not those which were shot by independent companies. If A-listers made and distributed it, we considered it. Click on the movie title above each synopsis to read our full review. Films that just missed the cut due to scheduling conflicts (thank you Hollywood for scheduli…

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES Review. Doesn't Possess Us In The Least.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES Review By: MattInRC
The first film of 2014 - Paranormal Activity The Marked Ones - doesn't possess us in the least.


Back in 2007, the Paranormal Activity franchise was riding high. Cashing in on the formula that made The Blair Witch Project such a stunning success, Paramount showed bold flexibility in turning a small production into box office gold. The idea of hand-cam movies in horror is a brilliant concept, with many films failing desperately to mimic them. But since 2007, this franchise has looked like a shadow of its former self, and three films later, Paranormal Activity The Marked Ones utterly fails to possess us or even keep our attention.


This spin-off shares the story of a recent high school Latino graduate Jesse (Andrew Jacobs) and his best friend Hector (Jorge Diaz) as they play around with Hector's new video camera, documenting their lives in the barrio. They get chased by local thugs, ride down the stairs in a laundry bask…

New Images From Arrow's Mid-Season Premiere

The holidays may be over but Arrow is still on hiatus. The show won't return until Jan. 15, but when it does, they'll be something different about the hero. The last time we saw Oliver (Stephen Amell), he'd gotten an early Christmas gift from Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).


In the previous episode, Barry brought up something that's been bugging us since Season 1. What's up with Oliver's face paint? He claims that a mask would hinder his ability to shoot, but of course, Barry had a remedy for that. Before heading back home, he created a mask that could hide Oliver's identity without affecting his aim.


The CW's released new photos from the midseason premiere titled, "Blast Radius." They feature Arrow out in the field with his new eyewear. In one photo, he's face-to-face with Sebastian Blood, without the help of a carefully placed shadow.

Here's the episode synopsis:
