(Sean Ferguson)  10/09/2017 4:45 PM EDT
If you've never seen the CW's iZOMBiE you are missing out on one fun show. For those of you that have seen it, bear with me and let me fill in the non-watchers. "iZombie is loosely based off a comic book series from Vertigo. In this CW version, adapted by Rob Thomas (not Matchbox Twenty Rob Thomas)... the man behind Veronica Mars. The Sto... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/03/2017 2:54 PM EDT
It's been almost 30 years since A Fish Called Wanda was in movie theaters. Co-written, co-directed and starring John Cleese (Monty Python and the Holy Grail), the smart comedy was nominated for three Academy Awards with Kevin Kline (Dave) winning for Best Supporting Actor. Arrow Video decided the movie needed a rem...

In 1990, James Ellroy (The Black Dahlia) wrote the third book in what became known as his L.A. Quartet, L.A. Confidential.  Seven years later, a movie adaptation with the same name opened in theaters nationwide and garnered both critical acclaim and box office success.  Nominated for nine academy award nominations, it ultimately lost...

976-Evil   976-Evil Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  10/02/2017 4:49 PM EDT
Of all the horror movies released in 1989 (Nightmare on Elm Street 5, Halloween 5, Friday the 13th Part 8), 976-EVIL was probably the most disappointing. The pedigree of the longtime horror icon, Robert Englund, could not be disputed; he played Freddy Kruger after all and as of 1989 he did it five times. He starred in the Tobe Hooper... Read More

Nostalgically missing my Disney annual passes, my mind wanders back to one of my favorite rides singing Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me...but if you rode the ride as many times as I have, you would remember the first words you hear after setting sail. Dead Men Tell No Taaaaaaaaaales.It makes perfect sense that Disney would eventually use i... Read More

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that'll be the end of ... Read More

Empire: The Complete Third Season   Empire DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/26/2017 4:51 PM EDT
If you thought Seasons One and Two of the hit television show Empire where chock full, then get ready for Season Three.  Available now on DVD, the eighteen episode season really packs a punch.  From drama, murder, backstabbing and a new baby in the mix, the weekly nighttime soap opera seems to be hitting all the marks necessary ...

Modern Family DVD Review
Modern Family: The Complete Eighth Season   Modern Family DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/25/2017 3:18 PM EDT
A good run for a television show is about four to five seasons, so when you have one that is still going through Season Eight with renewals for another two seasons, you know it's a quality show.  When that same show has been nominated every year for an Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy and has won the award five out of Eight years it speaks v...
