In 2011, Twentieth Century Fox re-imagined the very popular 1968 -1974 films and television series called The Planet of The Apes.  Rise of the Planet of The Apes took a different slant on the classic story and it seemed to pay off.  Once again, the subject matter was a hit with audiences so naturally, in 2014, they created a seq...

In 1977 Eric Estrada and Larry Wilcox were the "coolest cops" on television. CHiPs was a favorite for many and made stars out of the two young actors.  As with so many older things these days, an updated version of the show made its way to movie theaters this year and is now coming out on Blu-ray Combo pack. While nothing is usually ... Read More

Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner… It was with these words the world was introduced to the trailer for the Michael Mann (Public Enemies) film that would become a classic. Bringing together two powerhouse actors face to face for the firs... Read More

In 2003, a relatively unknown actress, Kate Beckinsale (Pearl Harbor), along with director Len Wiseman (Total Recall), created a new gothic/steampunk/action/sci-fi franchise entitled Underworld. Since then, we have been treated to various adventures in a world dominated by Vampires and Lycans and now, in 2017, Sony Pictures and Screen Gems have unl... Read More

A  prime example of this is his latest film, A... Read More
