Why would anyone come up with the idea to take popular characters made out of animated Legos and make it into a movie?  Who would want to go see it? 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...

Televisions shows don't always know when their run will end, so often seasons end with the all too familiar cliffhanger that sadly never gets resolved.  Occasionally, they find out before the finale is written so they can tie the series up in a nice little bow and not leave fans hanging.  Rarely does a show know it will end before the fir...

Disney is always trying to reinvent itself; from new attractions at the theme parks to merchandising to their latest animated successes like Frozen and Moana.  The same can be said for one of their newest ventures, turning their animated movies into live action films.  First, there was Maleficent then Ci...

Arnold Schwarzenegger got his start in films as an action star.  Movies like The Terminator, Predator, and Total Recall showed off his muscles and his ability to brandish a weapon but certainly didn't stretch his acting ability.  After a stint as the Governor of California, he is once again back in films and takin...

Disney has a habit of re-releasing classic movies from videotape to DVD to Blu-ray as they find a way to re-digitalize and/or improve the colors and animation.  Bambi's Anniversary Edition is the latest in a long line of classic movies chosen by Disney to be added to its Signature Collection. It's great to see these older films back in... Read More

If you enjoy Dan Brown's books, Tom Hanks in his movies, or any intrigue and conspiracy theories about the Church, Vatican, and the Pope, then HBO's The Young Pope is the show to watch.  This new show doesn't have the action scenes that Games of Thrones has or the suspense factor of Westworld, but it has a young pope w...
