May 25th, 1984
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom premieres in theaters at #1 with a $25.3 million opening weekend. It would fall a week later to Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The film is technically a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark, taking place a year earlier. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas considered several ideas for the plot, including a motorcycle chase on the Great Wall of China, the discovery of a secret world of dinosaurs, a Monkey King, and a haunted castle in Scotland. Harrison Ford took many of the one liners that were originally met for his sidekick Short Round. On a budget of $28 million, it would go on to make $179.8 million domestically, the 3rd biggest movie of 1984 behind only Beverly Hills Cop and Ghostbusters.
Here’s @jeremy_perez’s review for BookSmart:
#BookSmart is the directorial debut of actress Olivia Wilde. Going in I was not expecting too much other than a good time with a few laughs. What I got was so much more. The movie took me by surprise with how great it was. Witty dialogue, interesting characters, gorgeous shots, and the most heart I’ve felt from a film in awhile, made this film one of my favorites of the year. The co-leads, Beanie Feldstein (Molly) and Kaitlyn Dever (Amy), have such great chemistry and fulfill their characters to an outstanding level. Each and every supporting character, whether they have multiple scenes or just one, have such an impact on this movie that everyone is memorable. This is due to the stellar acting and script. Unfortunately some scenes do go on for too long and at certain points some scenes feel like they’re missing. However the engaging script that came to life with pitch perfect acting across the whole board, brings you into this world and allows you to overlook these nitpicks. I’m always a sucker for a wonderful coming of age film, it also helps to have many SNL alumni cameos. I give BookSmart a 9/10. Please go and watch this movie, the subversions and ridiculousness is worth the price of admission alone!

I saw majority of my favorites of 2014 without seeing a trailer or having a general idea of what said movie was about. I just knew a new Captain America was coming out, Wes Anderson was back at it, It Follow got great reviews, Ben Affleck was making his attempt at starring in Gone Baby Gone, Chris Rock was making another movie with a predominantly black cast, Where I Leave You had a cast to die for, and listen.....I had zero desire to see Paddington originally...then I watched the first 10mins of it while getting a shape up and the rest was history. 2014 was a year of pleasant suprises.
"Captain America: The Winter Solider" directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo
"The Grand Budapest Hotel" directed by Wes Anderson
"Gone Girl" directed by David Fincher
"It Follows" directed by David Robert Mitchell
"This Is Where I Leave You" directed by Shawn Levy
"Top Five" directed by Chris Rock
"Paddington" directed by Paul King
I would like to take this opportunity and thank Heath from @cerealmidnight
Before I started to watch his channel I pretty much disliked my #DVDcollection and was mostly focusing on #Bluray. I only picked up a DVD if it didn't have a bluray announcement, and I often did it with disgust haha. I've been focusing way too much on HD - everything had to look the best it could. I have even been annoyed with some blurays and their bad black levels etc.
Heath has the opinion that the movie itself should always come first, you can adapt to picture and sound quality if you really want to. And besides, if you want older movies not all is gonna get an HD release. It's not gonna happen.
So yeah, this has given me a new appreciation for my WHOLE #moviecollection. Thanks Heath!
