 Wild West HottiesWild West HottiesWild West Hotties 2

Rarely does such a serendipitously violent weekend come along. In fact, this weekend at the movies promises to be so enjoyable that I’ve been stunned into writer’s block.  All this Box Office Insider can say is: even though the numbers won’t reflect it, this is going to be a very good weekend. So catch the bus, ask your mom for a ride or (if you’re one of those little punks loitering outside my office) tumble in on your skateboard… just get yourself to the theater.

Penguins Seek World Domination, Fla-Vor-Ice

Penguins survey the landscape

Though rumors have circulated for years, the first concrete evidence that penguins are in fact attempting to take over the world was leaked from a top secret CIA report early this morning. According to the document, which the Drago newsroom has obtained through less than legal-but not quite reprehensible means, penguins are united in the dream to rule the world, create a crisp wintry climate year round and eat all our Fla-Vor-Ice, the muti-colored freezer bars popular with children.

The Box Office Insider Presents: More Kicks Than A Rockettes Reunion Tour


Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the theater, this weekend will do nothing but kick you out again… and I mean that… literally.

What If – The Drago Effect: The Movie

A lot of people have been asking The Drago Effect staff if we’ve ever dabbled in other entertainment mediums, and as it stands, the answer is “No”. Although we have been in talks with NBC to write and produce a “pirate sitcom”, yet no timbers have officially been shivered. Regardless, if we WERE to produce feature length (non-text based) projects, they’d probably begin like this:

Reviews for Stuff I Haven’t Seen Yet… The Bourne Ultimatum

In what will hopefully become a reoccurring piece (pending executive approval), I bring you the first edition of “Reviews for Stuff I Haven’t Seen Yet”. This week’s film is the third, and supposedly last, in the blockbuster Jason Bourne franchise.

The Bourne Ultimatum

Having seen the previous two films, I was pretty excited to get on board with Bourne just one more time. Identity and Supremacy were both pretty decent action movies, in my opinion, so I felt ready for whatever director Paul Greengrass was going to throw at me this time.
