Hollywood is full of real life stories of the husband running off with the nanny, or having an affair, and there have been several movies made similarly.  In fact, there have been movies made where the nanny becomes obsessed with the husband and it didn't end well for the nanny.  Screen Gems and Sony decided to put a little spin...

Can you remember the first time you met your future in-laws?  Or the first time your son or daughter brought home their new boyfriend/girlfriend?  Hollywood has been playing on this theme over and over again from Guess Who's Coming To Dinner to Meet The Fockers.  The latest addition to this grouping is Twentieth Century Fox's Why Him...

Sing Theatrical Review
Sing   Sing Theatrical Review
(Javier Conte)  12/21/2016 3:29 PM EDT
When I first saw the trailer for Illumination's Sing, it reminded me of a little movie released back in 1997 called Cats Don't Dance. It told the story of an optimistic cat who leaves his home to pursue a career in Hollywood. It was a tribute to the golden age of Hollywood musicals, while at the same time providing social commentary on discriminati... Read More

November 22, 1963, was the day Camelot ended and changed the face of politics in the United States forever.  John F. Kennedy was our 35th President and one of the most beloved.  His trip to Dallas, Texas was meant to bring a divided State back to the Democratic Party.  Instead, John F. Kennedy was assassinated right in front of his w... Read More

As long as we've been looking up at the sky and stars, interstellar travel has long been a goal and dream of the human race.  As technology has advanced in recent years, that goal seems more and more obtainable.  While not completely realized yet, we will hopefully have the ability to travel and colonize other planets in the next 100 or s...

(Nathan M Rose)  12/20/2016 12:23 PM EDT
Rob Zombie is synonymous with all things horror. Between his films, music, name and even his personal style, there doesn't seem to be a side of him that doesn't delve into the macabre.  Zombie has released eight films, all horror, and the latest of these releases is 31.This movie was a bit of a change for Zombie as it actually used cro...

Family Guy DVD Review
The Complete Fourteenth Season   Family Guy DVD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  12/19/2016 11:10 AM EDT
Seth MacFaralane's Family Guy has seen a monumental amount of success. This show, as a whole, is beyond clever and bordering on genius. Some may think that my use of that word is a bit much, but I disagree. The intelligent and funny scripts intertwined with hysterical cutaways are what truly makes this show stand out among other adult-oriented ... Read More

Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy   Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  12/19/2016 10:28 AM EDT
I'm not much of a gambling man but I'd take the safe bet and say that if you're reading this review, you're a Clive Barker/Hellraiser fan.  I will even go further and venture a guess, you're either debating the purchase of the Scarlet Box or you have already taken the plunge and you want to see what our thoughts are on the ...
