Well, in 2014, those questions were answered when Warner Bros created The Lego Movie. The film was a smashing success, so two and a half years later they are back with The Lego Batman Mo...

Usually when you think of a western movie you think of horses, gunslingers, saloons, and cowboys.  1992's Academy Award winner for best picture, Unforgiven, has all that and more.   With Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) at the helm, both directing and starring in it, the movie opened to well deserved critical praise and became an aud...

It's very rare when a sequel manages to be as good as the original movie and even rarer still when the sequel is actually better than the original.  You can probably count on your right hand how many times that has happened in filmmaking but, if you did, you would have to include The Expendables 2 in that illustrious grouping.  ...

When The Expendables came out seven years ago, it was a who's who of today's best action heroes and promised to be jam-packed with the type of work they are known for.  It didn't disappoint and spawned two more films in the franchise.  The original offered another Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) production as he not only starred in t...
