||CleanMovie Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp||But for some disappointing mandible nips, Ant-Man and the Wasp is mostly the superhero pic you want it to be. The one real, uh, wasp in the ointment in Disney/Marvel's latest effort is this pic's rough language quotient. (PG-13) Read the Review||7/5/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanTV Review: Arrested Development||Arrested Development's development was arrested by Fox in 2006. Now it's growing again … on Netflix. Is it the same old Bluth show with the same old Bluth problems? Read the Review||6/26/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Wow.. this guy knows nothing about movies. He looks to shield anyone who abides by his short-sided attitude from real life. People curse in real life. Not everyone will think like you do (I know.. what a S H O C K E R!!!). If a movie has a few curse words, he knocks off a point or two seemingly just on general principle. What a joke.
