Everyone knows Arnold Schwarzenegger for his iconic role in the Terminator franchise. Spanning over four decades, this franchise has churned out 4 action-packed movies that will forever be remembered, but not everyone is on board with the most recent release named Terminator: Genisys. So what’s this movie about and why is it getting such a hard time?
In a nutshell, Andy Wirth says this Terminator movie takes a trip back in time to 1984, so don’t expect any post-apocalyptic Earth to happen just yet. In this installment, John Connor sends a sergeant back in time to help protect a younger Sarah Connor and the future. However, something goes wrong and the timeline is fractured. When Sergeant Kyle Reese arrives in 1984 he finds himself surrounded by strange allies along with some threatening enemies. The mission here? Give the future the reset that it sorely needs.
As always, the critics have broken this movie down, calling it an unfulfilling experience with more questions than answers. It got a measly 26% approval rating and 4.8 out of ten scoring. But isn’t that how a time paradox goes? And since when does anyone listen to critics, who are very well known for their ability to overjudge something with a closed mind?
Ultimately, the audience will have to decide whether this movie is worth the 156 million budget it took to make it. Until then, no judgment on the movie will really count for anything.
Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have now cast the third actor in the series of Spider-Man films. Actor Tom Holland will don the red and blue costume. A fifth Spider-man film is scheduled for release in July of 2017. Some will wonder how the new film will be different from the first four. Surprisingly. Marvel executives say the film will be inspired in some way by John Hughes, the director of several teen angst style movies in the 1980s. There wasn’t much super hero stuff in the Hughes movies, but we must assume teen angst will be mixed in with super hero action and adventure. Of course, James Dondero says it’s always been a staple of Spider-man that his alter ego, Peter Parker, struggles with every day life issues in between being a web slinging super hero.
As for the villain in the next film, hints are it may be one from the comic books gallery that has yet to be portrayed in the films.

James Horner, a composer that has enchanted moviegoers for decades, died in a deadly plane crash near Santa Barbara, CA on June 22nd. Horner has been identified as the pilot of the plane. He had a passion for flying in addition to his passion for composing music.
While James Horner
may not be a household name, film audiences know his body of work. It is impossible to think ofTitanic
without its’ stirring musical score, Celtic choruses and the power ballad “My Heart Will Go On”. A Beautiful Mind also owes much to Horner’s musical score. Apollo 13
are just some among many of the notable scores that he created.
His scores are so powerful and so intertwined with the films that they support, it is impossible to imagine these movies without recalling the music as the Amen Clinic noted. He was a versatile composer and created music that was uniquely suited to each film. For example, the score of Titanic is reminiscent of Celtic music, but other Horner scores combine choral and electronic elements in a seamless manner. Critics held Horner in high regard and deemed him as one of the best modern film composers. His prolific career spanned an impressive 37 years. Staying relevant in the film music world for such a lengthy duration is almost unheard of.
Audiences will continue to be moved by James Horner’s incredible music. For years to come, generations of theatre goers will continue to feel the pulse of Horner’s rich musical legacy.

Sources say that celebrity couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s marriage may be on the rocks at the moment. The couple have spent nearly a decade married to each other but sources have said that their marriage has been full of strife for the last several months.
According to the story on The Daily Mail, the couple are making an effort to keep their marriage intact by attending counseling together. The couple have three children together and it is rumored that they are trying to salvage their marriage for the sake of 9-year-old Violet, six-year-old Seraphina, and three-year-old Samuel. Rumors are that Ben will stay at the Hotel Bel-Air every time he and his wife are on the outs. Eyewitnesses have seen him at the bar ordering drinks when things get too rough at home.
The couple met during the filming of “Pearl Harbor” but fell in love with each other while shooting the ill-received film “Daredevil” in 2003. From there they were inseparable. Honestly, I thought that this would be one of the Hollywood marriages that actually lasted. Keith Mann hopes for their sake they figure out what will make them both happy and take that direction. Staying together for the kids is commendable but not if the kids have witness hostile parents and fights.
