Robin Renée On… Rock Star Birthdays (Celebrating John Lennon and Jackson Browne)

Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.

I love celebrations. I am all about a good party, to be sure, but quiet celebrations can be just as important. They’re a way to enjoy a time of the year recognized by many or to mark a personal rite of passage. Then again, sometimes a celebration is just plain geeky. I happen to enjoy knowing the birthdates of musicians I like. It may not warrant the magnitude of a P-Funk party (George Clinton: July 22nd), but a rock star birthday is a good time to remember that fantastic live show or listen to an album by the artist you haven’t heard for way too long.

Star Wars Battlefront Beta

Get your game on before the movie with EA’s gripping shooter Star Wars Battlefront

I’m firing a friggin’ blaster! On Hoth! Yes, I’m a hated Imperial stormtrooper crushing the Rebel Alliance. But dude! I’m firing a friggin’ blaster! On Hoth! Electronic Arts decided they’d better play-test their monster franchise reboot and see if this shooter could handle a million fanpeeps before it comes out for real. So  yesterday, like the Deathstar powering up its planet-searing cannon, the beta for Star Wars Battlefront hit the console stores. Download it we must. But is the Force with EA’s anticipated title? Brace yourself for the jump into hyperspace, and let’s take a look.

Will Pan fly past The Martian this weekend at the box office?

Families have the choice between two movies this weekend, but will either of them be able to topple last week’s number one? Here’s our prediction:

pan_ver2_xlgThis weekend’s big new release is Pan, a take on the Peter Pan mythology starring Hugh Jackman as Captain Hook. In many ways, this film does have a built-in audience, but I wonder if the story has been done to death over the last few years, with the television version the most recent. Reviews haven’t been strong, so the film is going to have to rely on Jackman’s star power and the fact that Hotel Transylvania 2, the only other family film out there right now, is already two weeks into its run. Look for Pan to debut in third place with $20 million, while HT2 will hold down second place with $21 million.

31 Days of Horror: The Gallows (2015)

Nobody wants to hate a film, right? I mean, I don’t. I never walk into a movie anticipating hatred, or yearning to hate what I’m about to watch. That’s why I could never understand all the folks hate-watching the second season of True Detective. Yes, agreed, it wasn’t nearly as strong as the first, remarkable run. But really, if you don’t like watching something, just turn it off! That’s what I do.

Usually.

The other night I watched The Gallows. I hadn’t heard much about it when it was in theaters this summer, but I recently saw the trailer in front of the DVD of Hidden, which I recently watched and reviewed and highly recommend. I liked what I saw and optimistically put The Gallows on.

Little did I know I’d be witnessing one of the worst films I’ve ever seen in nearly 40 years of movie watching.
