‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Beats the Memes to Become a Box Office Hit

Did any of us expect Sonic to defy the odds and beat getting dunked on by the internet? 'Sonic the Hedgehog' ran away with the weekend en route to a $111 million+ worldwide opening after getting reworked to fix the absolutely horrid CGI. It looks like Paramount is getting a win for a change!

Elsewhere, it seems that 'Fantasy Island' will be bringing the memes with its horrible reviews from just about every living human. We talk about all this more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Bad Boys for Life’ Once Again Leads a Dismal Weekend at the Box Office

'Bad Boys For Life' continues to run roughshod over the weak competition at the box office in its third weekend of release as it closes in on $300 million worldwide. As for the other films, most of them are doing either fine or terrible. In the "fine" group we have 'The Gentlemen' and 'Gretel and Hansel', and in the "terrible" group is 'Dolittle' and 'The Rhythm Section'. We discuss all this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘Bad Boys for Life’ Surprises with One of the Best MLK Weekend Grosses Ever

The first big-time winner of 2020 is 'Bad Boys for Life', which had the second-highest Martin Luther King Jr. weekend gross ever, trailing only 'American Sniper.' In a world where delayed sequels often fail, 'Bad Boys for Life' is one of the few that works.

However, 'Dolittle' did not work...at all. The $175 million production is the first major disaster of 2020, showcasing a whole lot of bad on many accounts. We discuss all this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘1917′ Wages War on the Box Office as ‘Underwater’ Sinks Fast

We're now in the middle of January, which means that, instead of talking about 2020 movies like 'Underwater' or 'Like a Boss', we'd rather talk about movies that came out at the end of 2019 like '1917', which opened well in its first weekend of wide release.

The film is riding on a high after winning plenty of awards and being nominated for many more. But is the film actually good? Is it more than its one-take gimmick? We discuss this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Falls Short of ‘The Last Jedi’ While ‘Cats’ is F’ing WEIRD

The big news of the weekend: 'The Rise of Skywalker' sucks. (Please don't hurt us.) The capper to the new Disney trilogy is, as we see it, a big misfire in a lot of ways, from plenty of script rewrites to a nonsensical story with baffling additions to lore, we break down why Episode 9 falls apart. (SPOILERS to follow!)

In other news, 'Cats' is batshit insane, and we struggle to put words to how bizarre it is. All this and more on this week's episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!
