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 1968, a film debuted about a planet where human-like apes ruled and humans were mute prisoners.  The foreign concept captured the imaginations of millions of people and became a popular series spawning 4 more movies through 1973.  Then, in 1974, a television series aired but only lasted for one season of 13 episodes and for a time the ...

Meeting your girlfriend's father is always a nerve-wracking experience, especially when said father is overbearing and you happen to be a rather meek and timid guy.  From the moment you lock eyes you know somewhere deep down inside the evening isn't going to go well and by the end of the evening, you realize you were right. Thankfully,... Read More

For some reason, people worldwide seem to be fascinated by the idea of the possibility of life on other planets.  We are always searching for proof of organisms in space to prove we are not alone and that other planets can sustain life.  However, many theorize that if we did find aliens they may not be so welcoming and friendly as we hope...

We've all been there… the dreaded wedding invitation arrives in the mail to the nuptials you aren't sure you should attend and don't know if you really even want to go.  Somehow you (or someone else does) convince yourself to RSVP yes and make a plan to head to the joyous occasion.  Up until the moment, you step into the reception ...

In a year in which female empowerment has already permeated major motion pictures, Sony offers up its latest entry with this summer's version of The Hangover entitled Rough Night. What starts out as some harmless fun in the form of a bachelorette party winds up being a series of mishaps that creates the most surreal evening some...

From the minute we met Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson; Wedding Crashers) in Cars, we, as an audience, were enchanted.  He was the self-assured, confident race car with a little bit of cockiness thrown in - but hey, what else can you expect from the best.  When he loses his way and finds himself in a small town, he learns humilit...

"True love knows no bounds." It's a statement we hear often in the face of adversity when two people are supposedly "meant to be together".  They face insurmountable odds that have to be conquered in order to live "happily ever after". Usually, these type of stories are the relegated to the world of fantasy but ev... Read More

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...
