Chips, two words, crude and hilarious! I remember the original television show and this is not it, but that’s ok. I have to admit, I laughed much more than I expected to.

The plot: Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank Ponch Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten-up former pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job-inside the CHP.Chips, Angela Ortíz, Michael Peña, Dax Shepard, ©2016 Angela María Ortíz S., Kristen bell, Jessica McNamee, Ryan Hansen, Rosa Salazar, Vincent D'Onofrio, Adam Brody, Chip Happens

I always enjoy Michael Peña’s work and Dax Shepard is not a bad director and it looks like it was a fun shoot, “It was a 45 day party.”

My first interview with Jordana Brewster was fun. We talked about her character Maureen Cahill dealing with character Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) who is a crazy good cop. And what she favors, film or television? Also you can listen to our interviews with Damon Wayans, where Crawford did most of the talking, and Johnathan Fernandez at the 2017 Winter TCA.

All in all, I enjoyed the film. The music was great, it made me want to go back and watch the animated version again.

One of the things that bothered me was the time lapse close to the end; it felt rushed. But most won’t notice it and it will be a hit.

We thought we would share some images from our press day, a little performance treat we got with Josh Gad (LeFou), Alan Menken (songwriter) and Luke Evans (Gaston).

Present at our press day was Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (Beast), Audra McDonald (Madame Garderobe), Gugu Mbatha Raw (Plumette), and director Bill Condon. — A.O.

If you enjoy bloody scenes, this horror film is for you. The Belko Experiment has enough funny and suspense to keep you watching. The guy behind it is no other than writer/producer, James Gunn, who told us about working with small independent film budgets compared to big blockbusters and what Guardian of the Galaxy 2 means to him.
