Gods of Egypt Theatrical Review
Gods of Egypt   Gods of Egypt Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/25/2016 6:30 PM EST
In 22 years, Director Alex Proyas (The Crow) has made 6 major motion pictures.  Some have become cult classics, while others were less than memorable. Regardless, one can usually discern a Proyas film, as his directing style is somewhat unique and his latest creation, Gods of Egypt, is no exception.  With sweeping visuals, reminiscent of ...

RELAX, They've Done It!It's right time nowWell, now…It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since Ben Stiller gave us fashion Icon Derek Zoolander bursting onto the big screen in the 2001 classic Zoolander. Love it, or hate it, there seemed to be no in-between for those that saw it. For those that loved it, it became a classic with lines... Read More

Being single sucks.  At least to most women that's the way it seems.  We spend years trying to find the "perfect guy" only to realize he isn't so perfect.  But the alternative of being alone is so scary to some that they will do almost anything just to be in a relationship.Not Alice (Dakota Johnson; Fifty Shades of ...

Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds; Green Lantern) is no super hero.  In fact, he is probably the anti-super hero.  He doesn't care about justice, unless it involves his own quest for revenge.  He isn't interested in saving lives or bringing down the bad guys, again, unless it serves his purpose.   He's funny, crass, sarcastic, sel...

Never judge a book by its cover.  Or in this case, never judge a movie by its trailer.Nicholas Sparks' latest feature film, The Choice, looked less than appealing based on the two minutes I saw online.  The story held no interest for me and the main characters had no chemistry, or so it seemed.  To be honest, I seriously thought abou...

Hail, Caesar! Theatrical Review
Hail, Caesar!   Hail, Caesar! Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/04/2016 3:19 PM EST
Hail, Caesar! is a movie with a laundry list of greats and one glaring not so great.  Great Writers/Directors Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men), great actors from George Clooney (Up In the Air) and Josh Brolin (Men In Black 3) to Scarlett Johansson (Avengers) and Channing Tatum (Magic Mike XXL), and great set and costume design.&nbs...

(Nathan M Rose)  02/04/2016 9:04 AM EST
Author Seth Grahame-Smith's work came to the attention of modern movie-goers with the 2012 release Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, based upon his book of the same name. Now, in 2016, after a couple of years of being in production with several different directors and leading ladies, his New York Times bestselling novel Pride and Prejudice ... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  01/28/2016 1:58 PM EST
Disney's The Finest Hours dramatizes the events of one of the most harrowing Coast Guard rescue missions off the Massachusetts coast in 1952.  Still regarded as one the most heroic and successful rescues in Coast Guard history, the events of February 18 inspired both book and now the film, which opens in theaters on January 29th. Based on a tr... Read More

In 2014, Ice Cube (Boyz in the Hood) and Kevin Hart (Get Hard) teamed up for the hilarious comedy Ride Along.  Now they are back for round two and the laughs are as abundant as ever.  In Ride Along 2, the soon to be brothers-in-law once again find themselves caught up in a web of illegal activity while trying to solve a crime.Ben Barber (...

Professional sports is big business.  Billions of dollars a year are spent on tickets and merchandising, not to mention players' contracts.  The NFL is so big they have their own day of the week, and commercial airtime for the Super Bowl costs an exorbitant amount of money for a 30 second spot.  You can only imagine what would happen...
