FROM BOX OFFICE SURPRISES TO BOX OFFICE BOMBS TO NEW LEVELS OFF ONLINE VITRIOL, THIS SUMMER HAD A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING
With Labour Day right around the corner, another movie summer season is officially in the books. So with that in mind, lets take a look back at this summer’s winners and losers at the box office. 2016 was considered a down year for the annual summer spectacle, but among the disappointments and the controversies there were a handful of bright spots.
Dr. Ted had me on his podcast last month to get my thoughts on this summer’s movies, particularly my top ten list which we revisited after Dr. Ted shared his thoughts on some recent video games and we exchanged our views on the Tragically Hip’s final concert. I chime in around the twelve minute mark and talk about the movies that were busts, bombs, successes and even a few that didn’t make onto my list back in May but probably should have.
