Hale's Kitchen (2019)After months of anticipation, Part A of ‘Fuller House’ Season 5 finally released on Netflix, and you better get your tissues ready. When Season 4 ended, the makers of the series revealed that they would be returning for Season 5. The final episode of Season 4 ended with a cliffhanger that left us with many questions: Will Steejay finally happen? Will Kimmy Gibbler and Fernando ever get married? What about Stephani Tanner and Jimmy Gibbler now that they have a baby? What will happen to Lori Loughlin? Will DJ stay with Steve or will she go back to Matt? Will Steve and DJ get their most deserved happy ending or not? These were just a few questions that were lurking in our minds when the series announced that season 5 will be the final one.Andrea Barber, Candace Cameron Bure, and Jodie Sweetin in Family Business (2019)But, worry not. It looks like the makers have found a way to address all our questions and more. The tissues will still be needed, not for sad moments but for happy ones—at least in Part A. Season 4 ended with Kimmy giving birth to Stephanie and Jimmy’s baby girl. Season 5 begins with Stephanie and Jimmy coming home with their newborn but they still don’t have a name for the little one. The first episode revolves entirely on Stephanie getting used to motherhood. Not wanting to ask help from DJ, she gets a doula who gets on everyone’s nerves. Stephanie finally reconciles with DJ and kicks the doula to the curb. Coming back to the name of her baby in season 2, when Uncle Jessy and Aunt Becky adopted a little girl, they named her after Danny’s wife and Jessy’s sister Pamela. Paying tribute to the family seemed to be a tradition as Stephanie follows the same ritual and honors her entire family while choosing the name for her baby.Candace Cameron Bure, Scott Weinger, and Elias Harger in Family Business (2019)She named her Danielle after her father Danny and the middle name Jo if anyone would like to call her DJ in the future. She even honored Kimmy by naming her the godmother. Ramona also seemed to have found her first decent boyfriend in Ethan after Popko and the Japanese boy band singer. Throughout the season, we also witnessed some unexpected moments and shocking ones when Matt returns from Las Vegas, married to Gia. That’s not the most shocking part, the one that will leave your jaw on the floor is Gia joining the She-Wolf pack. Matt tries to bond with Rocki and tries to be the step-father she never had. What we see throughout this season is a lot of bonding between the family members. DJ takes up gaming to get closer to Jackson and get him to open up to her. Meanwhile, we see Steve and Max bond when DJ isn’t at home by watching their favorite show ‘Real Housewives’. Yup, you read that right.Marla Sokoloff, Andrea Barber, Candace Cameron Bure, and Jodie Sweetin in Moms' Night Out (2019)That’s not the only part where we see the two bond, one might say we can see Steve and Max spend more time together than Steve and DJ themselves, and it literally is the cutest sight to see in the series. That’s not all, folks. We even witness two celebrity appearances this season. One by Lisa Loeb, which was already revealed in the teaser. She visits the vet with her cat, which DJ uses as an opportunity to introduce Stephanie and her music to Lisa. The second celebrity cameo is by Kirk Cameron. Kimmy tries to date again after getting confused about whether Fernando is the one for her. In the end, she goes on a date with Kirk Cameron but comes back to her one true love Fernando after.Candace Cameron Bure in Ready Player Fuller (2019)Overall, though the entire season was filled with happy moments which always seems to be the only thing that goes on in the Tanner-Fuller house, the last episode is the tear-jerker where DJ gets busy trying to prepare the best proposal for Kimmy. Yup, you read that right, Steve finally proposes to DJ, and we might be seeing a triple wedding when the season returns for Part B of the series finale.And for those of you worried about Joey and Uncle Jessy, sadly, we will not get to see them throughout the series except in the end when Steve proposes to DJ. Hopefully, we will get to see more of them in Part B of the season finale. As for Aunty Becky, the series didn’t address her at all, it was almost like she didn’t exist. And we needn’t be shocked about that. It was almost a known fact that Lori’s character will not be mentioned in the season. Overall, Part A of the series wasn’t disappointing. It seemed like the makers were trying to fill all the cliffhangers and give fans and viewers just what they wanted. We just have to wait and see if Part B will manage to tie up all the loose ends.

Lee Pace in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)Guardians of the Galaxy stars are a loosely shaped band of intergalactic scoundrels who go from being bad guys to heroes despite their own penchant for greed and self-preservation. Amongst them is a cosmic kidnapping victim who goes by Star-Lord, a terrible alias, which is why most folks call him by his Earth name, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt, Parks and Recreation). Stolen from his parents in the movie’s prologue, Quill has become a spacefaring thief and scavenger. He has recently struck off on his own, betraying his adopted crew to sell a mysterious metal orb and pocket the profits. This action sets off reverberations, angering the orb’s intended recipient, a brutal thug called Ronan (Lee Pace, Pushing Daisies), and landing a rather large bounty on Quill’s head. Ronan dispatches one of his minions, Gamora (Zoe Saldana, Star Trek), to get him the object. Blows are exchanged. Chris Pratt manages the physicality with a surprising ease, while also making it okay for those of us sick of Andy Dwyer to like the perfomer again. Zoe Saldana is at her most badass, continuing to prove that she should be the star of her own action franchise. (She was the only thing good in Colombiana). Further complications arise, however, when her efforts are derailed by the presence of the aforementioned raccoon and tree.Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)Rocket Raccoon and Groot (voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively) are misfit bounty hunters who intend to collect on Quill’s head. Rocket is a violent little bastard who is the product of some sinister experiments, and Groot is a kindly wood creature who comes from parts unknown. These two steal the movie, I promise you. Cooper’s vocal performance has a glee and abandon I’d like to see from him in the flesh, and those who remember how Diesel tugged at our heartstrings doing similar work in The Iron Giant will be pleased to have him work his magic here, too. Groot can only say one phrase, “I am Groot,” and like Woo shouting out a certain obscenity when talking to Al Swearengen in Deadwood, how he says it is indicative of its meaning. The computer effects team for Guardians easily bests even Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for creating believable, fully realized creatures that simply should not be.Lee Pace in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)The four bad guys tussle on a peaceful planet, and end up arrested. It’s in prison that they find their fifth Guardian, a shirtless bruiser called Drax the Destroyer (wrestler Dave Bautista) who has a grudge against Gamora’s former employer. He agrees to stave off killing her and go along with their prison break if it means they’ll take him to Ronan. And so an unlikely group of heroes is born.Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)The basic plot of Guardians of the Galaxy, which was co-written by Nicole Perlman and director James Gunn (Slither, Super), follows the Guardians as they first try to keep the orb out of Ronan’s hands and then, after they simultaneously lose it and discover what it really holds, get it back before he begins a path of destruction across the universe. The main genre is more adventure than sci-fi, and the tone lighter and more comic than a lot of recent superhero movies, but that’s what makes Guardians of the Galaxy so refreshing.

After defeating Owen Shaw and his crew and securing amnesty for their past crimes, Dominic “Dom” Toretto, Brian O’Conner and the rest of their team have returned to the United States to live normal lives again. Brian begins to accustom himself to life as a father, while Dom tries to help Letty Ortiz regain her memory. Meanwhile, Owen’s older brother, Deckard Shaw, breaks into the secure hospital that the comatose Owen is being held in and swears vengeance against Dom and his team, before breaking into Luke Hobbs’ Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) office to extract profiles of Dom’s crew. After revealing his identity, Shaw engages Hobbs in a fight, and escapes when he detonates a bomb that severely injures Hobbs. Dom later learns from his sister Mia that she is pregnant again and convinces her to tell Brian. However, a bomb, disguised in a package sent from Tokyo, explodes and destroys the Toretto house just seconds after Han, a member of Dom’s team, is killed by Shaw in Tokyo. Dom later visits Hobbs in a hospital, where he learns that Shaw is a rogue special forces assassin seeking to avenge his brother. Dom then travels to Tokyo to claim Han’s body, and meets and races Sean Boswell, a friend of Han’s who gives him personal items found at Han’s crash site.Back at Han’s funeral in Los Angeles, Dom notices a car observing them, and after a chase, confronts its driver, who is revealed to be Shaw. Both prepare to fight, but Shaw flees when a covert ops team arrives and opens fire, led by Frank Petty, a man who calls himself Mr. Nobody. Petty says that he will assist Dom in stopping Shaw if he helps him obtain God’s Eye, a computer program that uses digital devices to track down a person, and save its creator, a hacker named Ramsey, from a mercenary named Mose Jakande. Dom, Brian, Letty, Roman Pearce, and Tej Parker then airdrop their cars over the Caucasus Mountains in Azerbaijan, ambush Jakande’s convoy, and rescue Ramsey.The team then heads to Abu Dhabi, where a billionaire has acquired the flash drive containing God’s Eye, and manages to steal it from the owner. With God’s Eye near telecommunications repeaters, the team tracks down Shaw, who is waiting at a remote factory. Dom, Brian, Petty and his team attempt to capture Shaw, but are ambushed by Jakande and his men and forced to flee while Jakande obtains God’s Eye. At his own request, the injured Petty is then left behind to be evacuated by helicopter while Brian and Dom continue without him. Left with no other choice, the crew returns to Los Angeles to fight Shaw, Jakande and his men. Meanwhile, Brian promises Mia that once they deal with Shaw, he will retire and fully dedicate himself to their family.While Jakande pursues Brian and the rest of the team with a stealth helicopter and an aerial drone, Ramsey attempts to hack into God’s Eye. Hobbs, seeing the team in trouble, leaves the hospital and destroys the drone with an ambulance. Ramsey then regains control of God’s Eye and shuts it down. Meanwhile, Dom and Shaw engage in a one-on-one brawl on a parking garage, before Jakande intervenes and attacks them both. Shaw is defeated when part of the parking garage collapses beneath him. Dom then launches his vehicle at Jakande’s helicopter, tossing Shaw’s bag of grenades onto its skids, before injuring himself when his car lands and crashes. Hobbs then shoots the bag of grenades from ground level, destroying the helicopter and killing Jakande. Dom is pulled from the wreckage of his car, believed to be dead. As Letty cradles Dom’s body in her arms, she reveals that she has regained her memories, and that she remembers their wedding. Dom regains consciousness soon after, remarking, “It’s about time”.Shaw is taken into custody by Hobbs and locked away in a secret, high-security prison. At a beach, Brian and Mia play with their son while Dom, Letty, Roman, Tej, and Ramsey observe, acknowledging that Brian is better off retired with his family. Dom silently leaves, but Brian catches up with him at a crossroad. As Dom remembers the times that he had with Brian, they bid each other farewell and drive off in separate directions.Fast & Furious 7 is a no-holds, over- the-top and mindless action film, but this aside, it is an extremely entertaining and fun film to watch. With an all-star cast and some brilliant action sequences, Fast & Furious 7 is proof that certain franchises can continually make great movies. The most notable moment however in the entire film is the emotional and respectful ending during the send-off of Paul Walker, the film finishing with a montage of Walker in the previous six films, finishing with just two words. A fitting end for a great actor.

In 1971, Roger and Carolyn Perron move into a dilapidated farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island with their five daughters Andrea, Nancy, Christine, Cindy, and April. During the first day, their move goes smoothly, though their dog Sadie refuses to enter the house and one of the daughters finds a boarded up entrance to a cellar.
Batman-Bad-Blood-640x360A few paranormal events happen within the first few nights, including all of the clocks stopping at exactly 3:07 AM and Sadie being found dead in the back yard. One night, while they are both in bed, Christine feels a tugging on her leg, which she first expects to be Nancy, but is a spirit only she can see. She begins to scream and tells her family that the spirit wants the family dead. Carolyn is folding laundry in the night when she hears clapping in the hallway. When she goes to investigate, all the picture frames along the wall fall and shatter on the floor. She goes downstairs following laughter and finds the basement door opening slowly. When she goes inside to investigate, she’s trapped there by the spirit who claps beside her as her matchstick flickers out. At the same moment, Andrea and Cindy are attacked by a spirit on top of the wardrobe.

The Warrens conduct an initial investigation and conclude that the house may require an exorcism, but they need authorization from the Catholic Church and further evidence before they can proceed. While researching the history of the house, Ed and Lorraine discover that the house once belonged to an accused witch, Bathsheba (a relative of Mary Towne Eastey), who sacrificed her week-old child to the devil and killed herself in 1863 after cursing all who would take her land. The property was once more than 200 acres but has since been divided up into smaller parcels.

Carolyn, now possessed by the spirit of Bathsheba, takes two of her daughters, Christine and April, and drives back to the house. Ed, Lorraine, Roger, their two assistants, and a police officer rush to the house where they find Carolyn in the cellar trying to stab Christine with scissors. After subduing Carolyn and tying her to a chair, Ed decides to perform the exorcism himself. Though Carolyn escapes and attempts to kill April, who is hiding under the floorboards, Lorraine is able to temporarily distract the possessed Carolyn from killing her daughter by reminding her of a special memory she shared with her family, allowing Ed to complete the exorcism, saving Carolyn and April and lifting Bathsheba’s curse forever.
