Though no title did well enough to lift the box office out of its stunning summer slump, in their weekend debuts, both "Lucy" and "Hercules" are doing better than expected. Scarlett Johansson's "Lucy" easily snatched first place with a $43 million debut. Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" could nudge $30 million, which would put it about $5 to $7 million above some previous estimates. A brutal Cinemascore of C+ for "Lucy" means it ...

"Lucy" reminds me a lot of "Brainstorm" (1983) and "Dreamscape" (1984), two films from my high school days that reran endlessly on HBO. Both tried to paper over unwieldy concepts by throwing bucketfuls of cutting-edge special effects at a dull story that eventually collapsed. "Lucy" isn't dull but it is uninspired and does collapse.   After wowing the critical class with the ambitious and a ...

5 happiest cities in U.S. all in 1 state

Jul 22 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: WND

(IJREVIEW) — Other “abnormally happy” cities include Charlotte, NC, and Naples, FL. Is it just me, or is there a pattern here, and does it have something to do with southern cities?
