Duwayne’s Pick: Rampage! I am not just choosing this because the lead actor has a similar name and physique as me. Lol. He is the King of the Box Office, he is the current box office king much like Schwarzenegger and Stallone were in their hey-days. I first thought it would be stupid but after seeing the first movie trailer, I changed my mine. This is going to be a whole lot of fun to watch. It has a lot of action, cool SFX, comedy, and with lots of over-the-top acting … and that’s what a good popcorn movie does!

Tim’s Pick: Rampage, ditto. Almost all the same reasons.
