Despite having their own film set for a 2014 release, the Minions are large and in charge in the latest trailer for Despicable Me 2. Well, they’re large anyway.

Monday Morning Mixer: ‘Ralph’ wrecked havoc at the box office

It’s the final stretch as it were and after tomorrow, we can put away all those vile political ads for another four years. Tim has a good philosophy that we like to follow around here on the site and that is, it’s never good to discuss politics and rel…

The name’s Mixer. Monday Morning Mixer

“It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah!”
