We hope you enjoyed Nos. 21-11 of our Road Trip movie countdown! If you didn’t get a chance to check out the prior list, you can do so (or revisit it) by clicking here . Before we dive right into the final 10, unless we already lost you because you immediately scrolled down to see what is the No. 1 Road Trip movie, let me briefly give you a couple of movies that made our list of 68, but couldn’t crack [...]
Summertime is here (and has been for about a month now), which means families across our nation are debating on taking that once-traditional American family vacation – the cross-country road trip. Should we pile the kids into the minivan (or the Wagon Queen Family Truckster – if you have one) and visit our national parks – both the nature and amusement-kind – in hopes of creating lifelong memories for all involved, or should we stay at home, save money, send the kids to an [...]

For this week’s Jukebox Picture Show, we can talk about cha cha, tango, waltz, or the rumba. Or how about one of movie history’s most inevitable mash-ups – Harry Belafonte and bio-exorcism comedy!
Monsters beating up robots? Godzilla made by Guillermo del Toro? A glorious mash-up of every summer movie ever made? Bah, humbug!
