Addams Family Reunion: the sequel that time forgot

Simon Brew Nov 15, 2017

After Addams Family Values struggled at the box office, another film still followed a few years later. But Addams Family 3 this was not...

Were the world right, then in 1993, Addams Family Values would have got both the rich acclaim and enormous box office it merited. A deliciously playful sequel, it’s 94 minutes of tightly put together comedy, with a bunch of performers that come close to defining ‘perfectly cast’. Christina Ricci, clinging to a fence as she’s threatened with the Harmony Hut, remains a comedy highlight of 1990s cinema.

But the film didn’t really hit. As much as it was liked, its box office was less than half of the original. It was released the week before Mrs Doubtfire in the Us, and it was the latter that become the widely seen family comedy of Christmas 1993. Addams Family Values would do okay at best, but

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

4.6 Hog Day Afternoon

Last week I asked, when did Gotham become a guided tour anthology series about the DC Universe? Take a look at this week’s episode. We have a debut of a very modern DC villain, a weird Of Mice And Men riff centring on an underground fight club and a budding romance for the Penguin. How do all these diverse aspects fit together? They don’t. At all. But for some reason on some batshit strange level, it all still works.

Jaws Live in Concert Review

If you say the film title Jaws to pretty much anyone, they will inevitably start humming that theme music. Much like Psycho, Jaws is one of those rare films whose score is so iconic, everyone can instantly recall it.
