Ever since Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) was a ten-year-old boy, he has been fascinated with the French graphic novel Valerian and Laureline and has been trying to make it into a major motion picture for years.  He even waived his salary for the film since it was a lifelong passion of his.  This year saw the fruit of his labors...

Patti Cakes, Patti Cakes, bakers…this isn't that kind of movie.  When one hears the term "patty cake", we generally think of the beloved children's game and hear that song running through our head.  In this case, Patti Cake$ takes on a whole new meaning as it is a nickname Patricia Dombrowski's (Danielle Macdona...

It's hard to believe that it was twenty-five years ago that Kate (Catherine O'Hara; Frankenweenie) and Peter (John Heard; Big) McCallister lost track of their son Kevin (Macaulay Culkin; My Girl) for the second time in two years as the family went on vacation.  I mean…really!?!  Who forgets their ki...

The Crown: The Complete First Season   The Crown Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  11/07/2017 10:53 AM EST
Netflix has created an empire all unto themselves with their Netflix originals- both with their movies and television series.   A unique feature of Netflix is that they refuse to release their shows on a weekly basis, letting their viewers binge the show all at once.  Thank goodness for that, because The Crown, a story abou...

Let's all admit it.  By the time a franchise is into its third sequel, the audience starts wondering if it's really worth spending the time and money going to see movie number three.  It's a good thing that the writers and directors of Cars 3 are a step (or two) above other franchises because Cars 3 is going so fast, n...

The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
The Glass Castle   The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/06/2017 10:46 AM EST
So many times in Hollywood films the alcoholism of one of the characters becomes the main focus of the film.  We see the individual falling down, slurring their words, making horrible life choices, being abusive and destroying, at best, their own lives and at worst the lives of those around them. While The Glass Castle addresses the ... Read More
