We all feel pressure from our parents… get a good education, get a good job, get married, have a family, etc.  But for some, that pressure becomes even greater when religious beliefs are thrown into the mix.  For Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani; Silicon Valley), that is exactly the life he leads.  Unfortunately, that isn't th...

Robin Williams (Good Morning Vietnam) was a comedic genius who left us all too soon.  He was truly one of a kind.  He could famously go off on a tangent and make almost anything funny.  You couldn't help but smile and laugh when you saw his standup routines and he made a name for himself in major motion pictures even winning an Oscar...

Let's face it… Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures hit gold back in 2010 when the first Despicable Me movie made its way into theaters.  With great characters, funny lines and a solid story, it delighted audiences, especially the adorable little yellow Minions.  Due to its success, it was followed in 2013 by...

They say money is the root of all evil.  Some people will do anything to get it while some of those who have it will do anything to keep it (or get more).  It can certainly make life easier in some ways but harder in others and it is the rare individual who is left untouched by its appeal. Writer Josep Ciutat and Director Martin Rosete ex... Read More

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...

CHiPs   CHiPs Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  06/23/2017 1:46 PM EDT
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
