Possibly the best Kickstarter video ever

KICKSTARTINGDOM — It seems like everything has a Kickstarter page these days. Whether it’s raising money for your neighbor’s cat to get a holiday sweater or so a guy named Dave can get a chalupa, these pages are everywhere. All of these videos also seem to come with boring, bland and somewhat irritating videos.

Predictable 'Seventh Son' pits Jeff Bridges vs. Julianne Moore

Certain actors carry enough weight to make weak movies watchable. Think Christopher Walken in “The Rundown,” Gene Hackman in “Runaway Jury” or Liam Neeson in most anything he’s done since “Taken.”

5 movies to watch during Black History Month

February might be more strongly associated by some with Valentine’s Day (aka Singles Awareness Day), but the entire month is also dedicated to celebrating black history.

'SpongeBob Out of Water' is a wacky comic ride

It’s been over a decade since a talking yellow sponge made the leap from television to the big screen in 2004’s “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.” Usually a delay that long isn’t a good sign for a sequel, but fans of this zany Nickelodeon cartoon can rest assured: Your hero may still be underwater, but he's not watered down.

Muddled 'Jupiter Ascending' wasn't worth the wait

It’s never a good sign when a movie gets its release date pushed back. Unfortunately, “Jupiter Ascending,” a film originally slated for last summer, is not the exception to that rule.

Have You Seen This? Why you should hire an electrician



ELECTRICIAN SCHOOL — Thanks to Pinterest and HGTV we all think we’re expert DIY pros when it comes to our homes.

There's no escaping 'Saturday Night Live'

Way back when, I grew up in lovely Calabasas, California, alongside such notables as Ricky Schroeder and Erik Menendez. (Thankfully, I got out before the Kardashians arrived.) If, by chance, you happen upon a copy of Calabasas High School’s 1986 yearbook, you’ll see a picture of my friend Aaron Priceman in a trenchcoat and sunglasses standing alongside yours truly dressed up as Ed Grimley.
