Welcome to JURASSIC WORLD: CAMP CRETACEOUS, the New Netflix Show

Posted: September 18, 2020 at 8:37 am   /   Television, Television Reviews

One of my favorite movies of all time is Steven Spielberg’s 1993 larger-than-life dinosaur adventure, Jurassic Park.

The idea of returning to this world is exciting, and it all started with the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt and […]

Watch the Top 5 Best Commercials of Super Bowl LI

Posted: February 6, 2017 at 5:06 pm   /   Television, Television Reviews

For most sports fans, the Super Bowl was all about the game between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. But for some of us, watching the football game is just collateral damage.
