War on Everyone can best be summed up by the title of the featured extra… "Everyone sounds off: The Quirky Cast of War on Everyone".   Quirky, defined as different from the ordinary in a way that causes curiosity or suspicion, is synonymous with bizarre, crazy, curious, etc.  All of which are apt descr...

Any parent's nightmare is to lose their child and not know what happened to them.  The uncertainty of their child's fate haunts them until their last breath.  For Kamla (Priyanka Bose; Sold), this nightmare becomes a reality in the movie Lion.  Based on a true story, Lion details the twenty-five yea...

Back in the 1980's, horror films were all about blood and gore and people chasing teenagers and popping out from every corner.  Nowadays, they have evolved into more of psychological thrillers with characters and story lines playing with our minds.  There are also more horror movies centering around "urban legends" tha...

For a hilarious, if not a bit raunchy, comedy about a father having to cut the umbilical cord with his grown-up daughter, Why Him? fits the bill perfectly.  Delightfully comedic, Why Him? is almost the perfect third date movie.  The cast blends together well in an effort to bring a prior generation into the new te...

"Incredible"..."Triumphant"..."Out Of This World".... A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away, as movie goers lined up to witness the spectacle of "some new sci-fi flick", these exclamations could be overheard as those now initiated emerged wide-eyed from the theater.A relatively unknown director in an unch...

Warner Bros. is turning out to be what I would consider one of the smartest studios around.  Not only did they work with J.K. Rowling to provide one of the world's most popular movie franchises to people of all ages, but they have made the best business decision to bring the Harry Potter movies to 4K UHD.  Harry Potter and The De...

Warner Bros. has been amazing moviegoers over the last few years with their movie content, storylines, and choice of cast.  In the last year, they have also shown incredible foresight into bringing some of their prior blockbuster releases into the new digital technology.  The Harry Potter franchise has enthralled kids and adults...

For all the Harry Potter fans out there, J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. has rewarded us with a "prequel" to the beloved magical series (rumored to be the first of possibly five- yes, five!) that creates its own story without losing the Harry Potter vibe that is central to the stories.  Magic,&nb...

J.K Rowling wrote seven books in the Harry Potter series but the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was so large and full of details that it was broken into two movies.  I'm sure Warner Bros. also saw it as a chance to prolong the inevitable end of the series and an opportunity to make more money.  In all...

It is hard to believe that it has been almost 20 years since the first book in the Harry Potter series was published and 16 years since the first film was released.  Both the books and the movies garnered boundless success and have now spawned a second generation of fans.  As newer technology advances the audience'...
