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 Blu-ray Review
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...

Westworld: The Complete First Season   Westworld 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  11/06/2017 5:02 PM EST
Westworld, HBO's science fiction series based on the 1973 Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park) film of the same name, has taken viewers into a world where anything you desire can be yours. If you haven't had a chance to catch Season One, now's your chance. Available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Westworld promises a ride you w... Read More

Cars 3 4K Ultra HD Review
Cars 3   Cars 3 4K Ultra HD Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  11/06/2017 11:46 AM EST
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

Thor: Ragnarok Theatrical Review
Thor: Ragnarok   Thor: Ragnarok Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  11/02/2017 8:29 AM EST
Where to begin?!? Where to begin!  I suppose with ALERT: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!  Now then… While a fan of Marvel, its Cinematic Universe, and Thor in all film appearances (& beyond, er, before…), the Thor films have not been among my favorites.  That is until now.  Directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the ...

A Bad Moms Christmas Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/01/2017 9:03 AM EST
Last year, Mila Kunis (That 70's Show), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), and Kathryn Hahn (Transparent) made moms everywhere feel a little better about themselves and had us all laughing in the theater at Bad Moms. As Amy, Kiki and Carla respectively, they gave us moms permission to be less than perfect.  Now that we are about to hit holiday... Read More

Annabelle: Creation Blu-ray Review
Annabelle: Creation   Annabelle: Creation Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  10/26/2017 9:14 AM EST
A common phobia seems to be the fear of dolls, particularly old, porcelain dolls. When you have that fear and couple it with the doll actually being possessed, it's the stuff nightmares are made of.  Creepy looking faces that talk would probably make anyone run away screaming but Annabelle definitely evokes that reaction.In the latest...

War for the Planet of the Apes   War for the Planet of the Apes 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/24/2017 10:06 AM EST
In 2011, The Planet of the Apes saga found itself getting a reboot from the 1970's version of the story.  In this reimagined world, we see how the apes became more intelligent as the movie focused on one specific ape named Caesar (Andy Serkis; The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).  Caesar was born in a science lab where the ...

Warrior 4K Ultra HD Review
Warrior   Warrior 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/23/2017 5:08 PM EST
Over the years there have been numerous films that include the sport of boxing as a backdrop and even a few that include wrestling but until 2011's Warrior there has never been a movie that showcases the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting.  Just like Rocky or Million Dollar Baby, the action itself isn't th...
