LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

CHALLENGER: THE FINAL FLIGHT Trailer

Executive produced by J.J. Abrams and Glen Zipper, CHALLENGER: THE FINAL FLIGHT is a four-part docuseries that examines the 1986 Challenger space shuttle, which tragically broke apart 73 seconds after launch as millions of Americans—many of them schoolchildren— watched live on television. The series offers an in-depth look at one of the most diverse crews NASA assembled, including high school teacher Christa McAuliffe, who was selected to be the first private citizen in space. Conversations with the crew’s surviving family members help create a poignant and relatable portrait of the astronauts. Directors Steven Leckart and Daniel Junge also delve into the “fatally flawed decision process” and mechanical failures that led to the disaster, interviewing former NASA officials and engineers who worked on the failed booster engine and had repeated concerns about its safety. CHALLENGER: THE FINAL FLIGHT incorporates never-before-seen interviews, training footage and rare archival mat

Jumanji Sequel To Square Off Against Star Wars Episode IX

The end of Star Wars’ current trilogy has long been pencilled in for a December 2019 release — an immovable object in the blockbuster landscape. But J.J. Abrams’ return to the galaxy far, far away is about to face some unexpected competition in the form of an unstoppable force: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson . Following the huge success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle , which currently sits at a box office total of just under $1 billion worldwide, it looks like a third Jumanji film will be coming to the big screen in — you guessed it — December 2019. Speaking at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said: "I'd bet on seeing Dwayne Johnson in theaters again in December 2019. Don't rush to give all those screens to Star Wars.” Despite an opening weekend of $36 million in the US, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle went on to gross $404 million in the States alone. Of course, the Star Wars team won’t be too worried — even with Jumanji and The Greatest Show

Blu-ray Review: STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS

RAMA is back and this time he reviews Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The force is strong with this one. The best ' Star Wars ' movie since ' The Empire Strikes Back ' I can’t thank Disney and Lucasfilm enough for sending me this advance copy of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Blu-Ray . I was geekin’ out like a fat kid on a buffet line when I received this copy in the mail, it was like Christmas in Spring, it was like having my birthday party all over again, there’s no better way than that to describe such joy.
