Room Theatrical Review
Room   Room Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/30/2015 9:42 AM EST
Room. A ten foot by ten foot space.  A bed, sink, toilet, bathtub, wardrobe and small skylight to help differentiate between day and night. And, most importantly, one door to the outside with a keypad lock.  Not nearly enough space for one person let alone two.Joy (Brie Larson; 21 Jump Street) has spent 7 years locked in this room/shed in...

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse Theatrical Review
Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse   Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  10/29/2015 10:25 AM EST
Imagine, if you will, that a deadly zombie outbreak has plagued your city and just a handful of people are alive, trying to survive the pandemic. While this plot could easily describe the hit 2009 film Zombieland, it is actually the premise for the Paramount Pictures upcoming Halloween release, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.Direct...

The Last Witch Hunter Theatrical Review
The Last Witch Hunter   The Last Witch Hunter Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/22/2015 8:37 PM EST
The Last Witch Hunter had so much potential; unfortunately it just didn't live up to it.  It is predictable, anticlimactic and overdone at points. Even some good casting choices can't help salvage the tangled mess the plot weaves.  Dark, demonic and ordinary, I spent an hour and 45 minutes waiting for the big payoff that never qui... Read More

Jem and the Holograms Theatrical Review
Jem and the Holograms   Jem and the Holograms Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/22/2015 4:51 PM EST
If I were a young girl between the ages of 6 and 12 years old, I would say Jem and the Holograms is inspirational, moving, fun, and all about girl power.  However, I'm a grown woman, so for me the film was cliché, predictable, cheesy and unoriginal.  Clearly, I am not the target audience.Based on the Hasbro toy, Jerrica/Jem (Au...

Steve Jobs Theatrical Review
Steve Jobs   Steve Jobs Theatrical Review
(Paul Kates)  10/22/2015 4:39 PM EST
To label a film "biopic" can sometimes be a little misleading. There is always a case for artistic license to emphasis part of the production, and this may be the case of Danny Boyle's (Trainspotting, Trance) latest offering, "Steve Jobs". Written by Aaron Sorkin (Malice, The Social Network) and based (loosely) on the biogra... Read More

Goosebumps Theatrical Review
Goosebumps   Goosebumps Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/16/2015 9:31 AM EST
If you were a child of the 80's, or the parent of a child of the 80's, you will most likely remember the beloved, if not scary, book series, Goosebumps, by R.L. Stein.  Columbia Pictures has decided to bring these creepy characters to life in the movie of the same name, opening in theaters just in time to cash in on the Halloween Season.Set in... Read More

Bridge of Spies Theatrical Review
Bridge of Spies   Bridge of Spies Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/15/2015 9:49 AM EST
For children of the 50's, Bridge of Spies will be a nostalgic look back at a time when the world was a very different place.  For those of us from younger generations, it will be an interesting view of world events from when communism overran half of Germany.  Either way, it is a powerful film, highlighting the more human side of the cold...

Pan Theatrical Review
Pan   Pan Theatrical Review
(Paul Kates)  10/08/2015 11:08 AM EST
Taking a well-known story and twisting it around a little cannot be the easiest thing to do. With his latest film, Pan, Director Joe Wright takes J.M. Barrie tale of Peter Pan and gives his take on what was before the story we all know.The film starts off with Peter being abandoned at an orphanage as a baby, before moving forward twelve years to th...

Ridley Scott once again dips his paws in to the science fiction genre with The Martian, based on Andy Weir's 2011 novel of the same name, and stars Matt Damon as Mark Watney, a NASA botanist based on a scientific research base on the surface of the red planet.The crew of ARES 3 are forced to make a sudden emergency evacuation from Mars when a storm...

In Mexico, Sicario Means Hitman.Ripped directly from today's headlines comes Sicario, a film about the brutal war against drugs and the Mexican cartels, directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Untitled Blade Runner Project).FBI Agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt; The Edge of Tomorrow, Looper) is very good at her job on the FBI kidnapping task forc...
