Have you ever had a sworn enemy that you suddenly discover you have to work with on a project?  What if you had to risk your own life protecting that person?  Would you do it?  What would it take to motivate you to do it?  Would you be able to do it without wanting to kill them yourself?  What if it was for the greater good...

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Blu-ray Review
DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season   DC's Legends of Tomorrow Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/15/2017 3:25 PM EDT
When I was little, Warner Bros. to me was Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner. Saturday morning cartoons were funny, comical, and maybe even a bit serious. I can still remember the cartoons ending with Bugs bursting out saying, "That's all folks" while the caption underneath read "Warner Bros. Cartoon". When Season One o... Read More

Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) has a certain charming quality about him. Whether he is playing a drug dealer in the 1970's or he is romancing a beautiful woman and melting women's' hearts everywhere, he always seems to come across a little bit like a used car salesman to me – but not in a bad way. He is smooth and likable and has a ... Read More

As a parent, what would you do to keep your child safe? Would you lock them in a tower like Rapunzel?

For many years, it seemed so until one day everything changed.Maddy (Amandla Stenberg; The Hunger Games) isn't your normal eighteen-ye... Read More

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul   Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Blu-ray Review

Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  The Long Haul is the most recent movie in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise, based off of the series by author, writer, and producer, Jeff Kinney. Cute and entertaining for the kids when you need to occupy them, this is a lighthearted and family friendly comedy that –while over exaggerating a teen's... Read More

Riverdale: The Complete First Season   Riverdale DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/14/2017 10:11 AM EDT
In today's world of entertainment full of superheroes, someone decided it was a good idea to base a television show on the Archie Comic book series.  Since 1941 the characters have become familiar to generations of comic lovers worldwide and now they appear on television though not in the same vein as the comics.  All the regulars are...

Wind River Theatrical Review
Wind River   Wind River Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/11/2017 10:06 AM EDT
I was going to make a joke about "two Avengers walk onto an Indian reservation" but Wind River is no laughing matter. Based on a true story, it is a hard look at life on a reservation and the forgotten Native Americans who live there.  A true crime drama, there is more going on than meets the eye, offering up all ...

Camelot - the age of innocence, love, and peace.  Camelot- an age that whirls in the fantasy of a King that will bring prosperity and peace in a land fraught with battle scars.  Camelot- one that will begin with a man pulling a sword from a stone- Excaliber.    We've all grown up on Camelot – our parents with JFK&...

Blindspot Blu-ray Review
Blindspot: The Complete Second Season   Blindspot Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/08/2017 8:38 AM EDT
Suspenseful dramas that captivate the audience week upon week and keep them engaged are a rare find, and if you watch Warner Bros. Blindspot you will know that there are not many shows made like this one.  Created by Martin Gero and produced by Greg Berlanti, who has worked on Everwood as well as the DC's Arrowverse, no won...
