Cool Videos: The Hobbit/The Office crossover short starring Martin Freeman Martin Freeman is probably best known for playing Bilbo Baggins in THE HOBBIT films and Tim Canterbury from the British version of The Office, and Freeman (kind of) reprised both roles over the weekend on Saturday Night Live. Besides hosting the episode, Martin Freeman appeared in the pre-recorded sketch "The Office: Middle Earth," and it also stars Bobby Moynihan as Gandalf/David Brent and... Read More...

Weekend Box Office Report: Audiences Passover 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Sometimes, a film can effortlessly open at number one at the box office while still being a pretty huge disaster. This is the case with ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings,’ which rode a wave of terrible reviews and an even more terrible marketing campaign to a hugely disappointing start. With a lot of big movies opening the next two weeks, the new Biblical epic won’t even find time to grow some legs. Chances are strong that it is dead on arrival. Continue reading…

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Commands $8.6 Million at Friday Box Office The Bible epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings” will bring down reigning box-office champ “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” and win this weekend with a three-day opening of around $25 million. But it won’t match the March opening of the faith-based action saga “Noah” and isn’t going to lead the slumping box office out of the bull rushes. “Exodus,” which is directed by Ridley Scott and stars Christian Bale as Moses, brought in $8.6 million from 3,505 theaters in its debut Friday.

Critics Consensus: Exodus: Gods and Kings Fails to Reach the Promised Land

rottentomatoes.com – This week at the movies, we've got a powerful prophet (Exodus: Gods and Kings, starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton) and a conflicted comedian (Top Five, starring Chris Rock and Rosario Dawson). What do the critics have to say? 5 years 1 day ago via theothersenhman

Meeting, but rarely exceeding, expectations, Ridley Scott's grand retelling of Moses and the Hebrews' flight from Egypt is strong on visuals and A-list presence, but slight on narrative and characterisation. Christian Bale and Joel Egerton both put in fine performances as Moses and Rameses, while the rest of the big-name cast gets lost amidst a CG-heavy blizzard of battles, plagues, revolts and muddled imagery.

Chris Rock in "Top Five"
Welcome to podcast #13. Binh and I discussed the new “Terminator: Genesys” trailer; neither of us liked it. There wasn’t much movement in the top 10 at the box office, other than the huge 50% drop that most films experienced.
