[Review] — "ROUTE 60: THE BIBLICAL HIGHWAY" — {Giveaway}

Only on September 18 and 19, take your families to see ROUTE 60: THE BIBLICAL HIGHWAY in cinemas. Get your tickets to ROUTE 60 today at


"Visually stunning and compelling storytelling.” - Mike Huckabee 

"ROUTE 60 combines the truth of the Bible with undeniable archaeological proof, and like our tour guides, Pompeo and Friedman, that’s a powerful combination!” - Erick Stakelbeck 


The biblical spine of Israel, also known as the Path of the Patriarchs and formally known as Route 60, cuts through the center of the Promised Land. This 146-mile stretch of asphalt and concrete runs from Nazareth, Israel's largest Arab city, to Beersheba, one of Israel's high-tech cities. It is a route of profound historical significance and is frequently the site of tension and bloodshed. Route 60, which runs from north to south, links Muslims, Jews, and Christians with one another, as well as Israelis and Palestinians.

This journey is more than just a two-lane road; it is a historically significant, sacred link to the beginnings of both Christianity and Judaism and the Old and New Testament accounts.

Follow the path that Abraham, Jacob, King David, and Jesus once traveled—as they go along this holy route with Mike Pompeo and David Friedman, two world-changing diplomats. Learn the past, see the mending, and grasp the optimism along the ROUTE 60: THE BIBLICAL HIGHWAY.

My Thoughts

Mike Pompeo, a former secretary of state of the United States, and David Friedman, a former ambassador of the United States to Israel, lead viewers on a 90-minute tour of historical locations along the "Biblical Highway" in the fascinating documentary ROUTE 60: THE BIBLICAL HIGHWAY. While Friedman is Jewish, Pompeo is a Christian. Their thoughts and reflections on narratives from the Old and New Testaments were intriguing.

I've never visited the Holy Land, so I was anxious to watch a documentary about the landmarks and learn more about biblical history. Overall, I enjoyed 
ROUTE 60: THE BIBLICAL HIGHWAY; the 90-minute runtime flies by quickly. Undoubtedly, it's worth watching. ╌★★★★✰

As a young man, Rickey (Colin Ford) rises to fame in baseball. The family is torn apart by his ambition to take part in a tryout for a renowned major league scout, endangering Rickey's dream of becoming a professional baseball player. 

Bring your family to the theater to watch this inspiring film! Buy tickets today to see THE HILL only in theaters starting August 25th. Tickets can be purchased at

My Review

I love feel-good baseball movies—and THE HILL meets the bill. I haven't seen a film like this in a long time because Hollywood only wants to produce remakes and superhero movies. The writing by Angelo Pizzo, Scott Marshall Smith, and Aric Hornig is well done; the performances by the whole cast are good, and the directing is superb. I suggest watching this delightful, uplifting movie with your friends and family. —★★★★★

[Blu-ray Review] — Cocaine Bear: Maximum Rampage Editon (2023)

Available to purchase on Blu-ray and DVD

Yeah, I'm a little late in the game to be reviewing Cocaine Bear (Rated R; 95-minutes) a horror film that came out to theaters in February of this year. The movie is already available to own on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital, and it's streaming on Peacock, so probably most horror fans who wanted to see the film have already done so. I received a Blu-ray copy and watched it right away, and life happens, and things pile up on my desk, and I'm just now getting around to sharing my thoughts on the movie.

[Review] — "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" Almost Becomes a Dumpster Fire

I've been delaying, delaying, and delaying my thoughts on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania for far too long, so I'm finally forcing myself to write this review. Why the delay? To truth is, I didn't like the film; it's my least favorite MCU film to date. If I hated the movie, then why review it? That's a good question with a simple answer, I received a digital copy for review purposes, and therefore I want to complete my obligation.

[Blu-ray Review]—"Ticket to Paradise" is a Predictable but Enjoyable Romantic Comedy

Is there anybody else who misses clichéd romance comedies? The genre appears to have gone out in the early 2000s and was briefly supplanted by vulgar comedies, which vanished when the big-budget superhero movies took over the box office. I was pleasantly delighted when Universal Pictures released the teaser for "Ticket to Paradise," starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts, earlier this year. Even though the trailer gave away the whole storyline, the movie seemed like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I did not get the opportunity to watch the picture during its brief theatrical run; however, I received an advance copy of the Blu-ray (+ DVD + Digital) release, which is now available in stores, along with a separate DVD release. The film is also available for digital purchase and streaming on Peacock

Daniel Pipski and director Oil Parker co-wrote the script. The film focuses on divorcees David and Georgia Cotton (George Clooney and Julie Roberts), who learn through email that their daughter Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) is marrying Gede (Maxime Bouttier), a man she just met 37 days ago while on vacation in Bali with her best friend Wren (Billie Lourd). David and Georgia immediately board a plane flown by her considerably younger French boyfriend, Paul (Lucas Bravo), to prevent their lovestruck daughter from making the same mistake they did twenty years earlier. 

Bonus Features on the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital are: 

  • Return of the Dynamic Duo Back together at last! In this fun-loving featurette, celebrate the significant screen return of two of the world’s most beloved stars, Julia Roberts and George Clooney.
  • Destination WeddingIt's a beautiful day for a wedding in paradise- and you're invited! Take a deep dive into all the details of Lily's magical day.
  • Production in ParadiseFrom Balinese marriage customs to filming in the Whitsundays, discover how filmmakers were able to bring a slice of paradise to audiences around the world in this making-of. 
  •  Keep a Straight FaceIt's hard to keep a straight face with a best friend by your side. Spend a day on set with real-life pals Kaitlyn Dever and Billie Lourd as they try not to distract each other too much.

The premise of Ticket to Paradise is as formulaic and predictable as it gets, and the humor is hit-or-miss. I never laughed at anything that transpired throughout the 104-minute length, but I did grin from time to time at the sheer joy of seeing George Clooney and Julia Roberts on screen together again. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the film is seeing their interaction. Kaitlyn Dever is excellent as their lovestruck daughter, and Billie Lourd is amusing as her party-loving best friend. ╌★★★✰✰
