It's hard to imagine that Aladdin came out 25 years ago.  I can't believe I'm actually that old!!!  Alas, it's true, and to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the movie, Disney is releasing it on Blu-ray this month.  The long awaited Diamond edition set will surely be embraced by so many who know and love the film, and are eager to sh...

It's a well-circulated idea that at some point California is going to break off and fall into the ocean.  It sits on top of a highly unstable fault line that could shift at any moment and create a catastrophic earthquake, leveling whole cities.  Warner Bros. explores this exact possibility in the Movie San Andreas.  Coming out on Blu...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/12/2015 11:50 AM EST
The Gallows is the latest in a long line of newer horror films that uses the "raw footage" technique to convince the audience they are watching real life events.  As one of the productions under the Blum House juggernaut (in conjunction with Warner Bros.), the movie has to live up to its brethren, such as the likes of Paranormal Acti...

The Leftovers…Not Just For Dinner.Last year, HBO debuted a new series from writer Damon Lindelof, who was one of the masterminds behind the hit series "Lost".

(Bonnie Greenberg)  10/06/2015 3:18 PM EST
After being a fan of the original Magic Mike movie, I couldn't imagine where they would go with the story line for Magic Mike XXL. I'm a huge fan of Channing Tatum and I think he's an amazing actor (It doesn't hurt that he is totally gorgeous and a rockin' dancer).  This movie did have a slow start for me, but got be... Read More
