If you grew up in the late 70s/early 80s, odds are you have seen at least one episode of CHIPS. After all the series lasted for 6 seasons, and was one of the most popular on TV during its run. If you liked the series, or even if you didn’t, you can’t go into the new movie based on the series thinking it will be the same.

Only Big Shemar Moore Fans Will Enjoy The Bounce Back

Sometimes movies really only have one things going for them when they are made.

The year of 2016 may just go down as the year of the sequel nobody asked for.

The latest in the long line of superhero movies doesn’t feature any superheroes in it.
