Regal Cinema Launches 4DX This Weekend!

4dx_42282

To refresh your memory 4DX is an immersive, interactive theater experience that makes you feel like you are in the movie. Seats move and shake, and the environment (rain, smells, etc) changes based on what’s happening in the movie.  I was in Vegas in March when South Korean company CJ4DPlex (they need a better company name) unveiled their partnership with Regal Cinema and AEG Live to bring their new 4DX theater technology to the US. The fruits of their labor is now upon us as Regal officially launches the technology on 4 screens this weekend in one of their flagship theaters - Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE Stadium 14.

To make glad you dragged yourself out to the theater. Yeah, I know people are whining and complaining about Transformers, but are people complaining about the movie or just projecting their irrational hatred and jealousy of Michael Bay onto the film? He knows his audience and delivers everything a fan of this franchise could want and more.

Review: A Million Ways To Die In The West, Best Comedy of 2014! Michelle’s Take!

million-ways-die-west-poster

Writer, Director, Actor, and Producer Seth MacFarlane’s latest flick A Million Ways To Die In The West is more of a vanity piece than an actual movie. If you don’t like MacFarlane’s brand of humor stop reading right now, this movie isn’t for you. It is nearly impossible to objectively review a comedy. At the end of the day, no matter how poorly a comedy may be directed, written, acted, the only thing a good comedy needs to do is make you laugh. What makes someone laugh is a very subjective thing.

New Poster: Guardians of the Galaxy!

GOTG_Teaser_1-Sht_v6b_lg (2)(1)

The first Guardians of the Galaxy poster (above) took a classic (some might say clichéd) layout and made it fresh by virtue of a combination of attitude (‘You’re welcome’) and having two of the main characters be a raccoon and a tree. Now they’ve done it again – taking a rather standard action pose and infusing it with the same nonchalant irreverence. Check it out after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1st.
