(Nathan M Rose)  12/15/2015 9:51 AM EDT
A couple of years ago, a foul mouthed teddy bear named Ted took the box office by storm, and, in true Hollywood fashion, a sequel was greenlit before the movie hit home release. While the first film was just exploring the world of Ted and his best friend, John Bennett  (Mark Wahlberg; Transformers: Age of Extinction), ... Read More

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Extended UK Edition   The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Blu-ray Review
(Paul Kates)  11/23/2015 10:52 AM EDT
It seemed almost inevitable that after his huge Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson would turn his attention to JRR Tolkien's other well-known middle earth novel "The Hobbit". What was surprising was that the adaption of this novel would also be a trilogy. Personally, I had reservations, and after seeing the first movie on the bi... Read More

I wasn't alive when the popular television show The Man From U.N.C.L.E. aired so I have no basis of comparison with the 2015 movie.  However, Warner Bros. decided it was time to make a full-length feature film that, I can only imagine, pays homage to the series.  If nothing else, it is a fun look at the spy game from years ago reminis...
