I’ve been contemplating making a series like this for a while and figure what better time than now to finally test it out. Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pride and copious amounts of gas that I bring you the SBox NewsCorner, where I take random entertainment news from the passed week and discuss them with you.

Ladies, gentlemen, and other general peeps, welcome for the last time to The Ranting SBox’s Annual Movie Countdown (2017 Edition)… aka the 2017 Movie Countdown. For those who are joining us for the first time, this miniseries serves as an annual tradition on this blog where I gather all the movies I saw the previous year and rank them from worst to best, giving my brief thoughts on each as I go.
This year there were 36 movies up for consideration. (See the full list here). We started our journey through the year of 2017 with the worst and most Mediocre offerings of the year. This was shortly followed by discussing the more middle of the road, Good movies of the year, and then a look at 10 of 2017’s Great films. However, it is now time to wrap things up by counting down the… *drum roll please*… Top 10 movies of 2017. Continue reading 2017 Movie Countdown: The Top 10 (#10-1)

By now, many should have your bets placed and your predictions set as Sunday night draws closer and closer. Some may be wondering my own predictions for the awards, and boy do I have them…They may not be well founded predictions in the world, but they’re predictions nonetheless.

I always look forward to the next in-house Disney animated film. They never really disappoint me. Even when they are lackluster they still have that charm that keeps you from hating it entirely. That’s because when they succeed, it’s definitely something to behold. With that said, I associate the cutoff date’s extension due in part to the opportunity to watch Big Hero 6. It didn’t feel right not talking about it when I could, so here’s what I thought about Disney’s newest outing. Continue reading My 2014 Movies: Big Hero 6 (#10)
This was the film I saw the latest of all of the films on this countdown. This also happens to be the only film on the countdown to be an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture. That should probably tell you enough about how good this movie is. In case you needed reassuring, though, I did enjoy the film very much.
The Theory of Everything details the life of acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking from the perspective of Jane Wilde Hawking. The film begins with when Jane first met Stephen in 1963. Continue reading My 2014 Movies: The Theory of Everything (#15)
