Trends in movies lately have some worried. The biggest money makers at the box office are seen by many as being long on action and short on substance. There has always been a bit of a gap between films preferred by critics and those that the general public tends to like. The former preferring more artsy films and the latter going for the enjoyable flick to watch while guzzling a soft drink and popcorn. There are of course differences between the sexes as well when it comes to movies as any guy dragged to see a “chick flick” by his girlfriend can attest to. Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the latest Star Trek movies, is not sure he’s happy about the emphasis on action over substance that has swept over the box office.
He points out that movies such as “The Godfather” and “The French Connection” used to be the hits of yesteryear and now they are movies based on comic book characters such as the Avengers movies as well as largely action based science fiction films such as the Star Wars movies. In fact, he points to the release of the original “Star Wars: A New Hope” in 1977 as almost a demarcation line after which action seemed to trump substance. Fortunately, NJSpotlight and the folks at Boraie Development LLC agree that even if they don’t top the box office, intelligent, well done movies that focus on script and story above superficial appeal do continue to get made. “Ex Machina” is a good example of this, and it is still in theaters now.

Fans, and even some critics and past fans of “Supernatural,” learned happily from last night’s promo that Death will be returning to the show in the Season 10 finale.
Why would this even make critics happy?
“Supernatural” has faced a lot of criticism of late for various reasons ranging from stale story lines and dialogue to the refusal of the show’s creatives to apologize for past and continued instances of discrimination and queerbaiting. “Supernatural” hasn’t been doing as well on social platforms as The CW wishes.
Death has always been a favorite character — even critics love him. Julian Richings, who portrays Death, hasn’t been seen though since 2013. He usually only does guest roles and he’s usually only brought back when the show needs a ratings boost or his packed schedule has an opening, which is usually about every two years or so.
Last night’s promo suggested that Death might ask Dean to take over as Dean did during the four horseman arc when Lucifer escaped the cage. If so, Dean becoming Death or a student of Death could be the “shot the arm” the show needs. That’s what Paul Mathieson is hoping for at least. Dean would make a great Death, or agent of Death, for a lot of reasons, including his own experiences with dying and temporary service. Dean’s also in the right place to leave his life as a hunter behind: He’s suffered quite a lot over recent seasons.

In 2012, Marvel Cinematic Universe’s movie The Avengers broke box office records by raking in $200 million opening weekend. On May 1st, the sequel Age of Ultron debuted and many wondered if the sequel would take over the top spot as highest grossing film during opening weekend. Although the film only cashed in $187.7 million, it is now holding the second spot for best opening weekend. Age of Ultron did manage to beat out the first Avengers movie with the most money on opening day though. Marvel Cinematic Universe and Joss Whedon have proven their consistency with these incredible numbers. STX Entertainment is happy for their colleagues.
Other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have made quite a bit of money as well. Iron Man 3 is ranked number three in the all-time biggest opening weekend profits with $174.1 million. To put these numbers in perspective, other highly anticipated 2015 movies have made far less than Age of Ultron. Furious 7 had a lot of hype for their opening weekend numbers due to the unexpected death of lead actor Paul Walker, but only grossed $147 million. The next highest grossing movie was the movie adaptation of the best-selling book Fifty Shades of Grey, which made $85 million during its first week.
There has been a recent outrage from the online community towards Whedon for his portrayal of Black Widow in the film, so many wonder if the movie will reach their expected numbers in the coming months. Loyal fans have already seen Age of Ultron multiple times and are now waiting for the summer’s release of Marvel’s newest film Ant-Man.
