The Minions Theatrical Review

Let's face it one of the best parts of the Despicable Me movies are those cute, little, yellow guys that speak a made up language.  The minions are funny, goofy and adorable and now they have their own movie. Minions hit theaters July 10th for 90 minutes of utter cuteness. Throughout the centuries the minions have only looked for a master... Read More

# 37 on the American Film Institutes top 100 movie quotes list goes like this… "I'll be back" It's like the never-ending promise of a series that will never end. In 1984 The Terminator was sent back to kill Sarah Connor in the classic beginning of this story "The Terminator." In 1991 The Terminator pro...

I'm all for a good road trip to Myrtle Beach for a stripper convention…especially when those strippers include Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), and Matt Bomer (White Collar). Yes, those sexy strippers are back for another round of frivolity and fun in Magic Mike XXL and spend much of the film half naked which, f... Read More

When it comes to sequels, not many come up or surpass its original.In fact I'm willing to bet the mad scientist behind Ted 2 could name them in a second. Out this week in theaters, is quite possibly the funniest film of the year.  To be perfectly Frank, if I do say so myself, it's the funniest film I've seen in a long time! In... Read More

The voices in your head are real!  They are cute, colorful, and wreak havoc with your emotions. At least that is what Disney and Pixar would like you to believe.Riley is an 11 year old girl who, for the most part, has had a pretty happy life so far.  She is a silly, sweet, honest kid with loving parents and good friends.  All of this...

Back in 1993, the way films were made, and viewed, changed forever with Jurassic Park, a Stephen Spielberg (Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) film based on a book by Michael Crichton (Disclosure,Congo). The film blended the use of animatronics, CGI, and an engaging story, with characters you cared about, to become an international success.The succe... Read More

Spy Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  06/04/2015 11:48 AM EDT
Melissa McCarthy's (Heat, Identity thief) movies are hit and miss.  Bridesmaids was hilariously funny but Tammy was just awful.  Luckily, her latest comedy, Spy, falls into the former category with 2 hours of nonstop humor that will have you laughing out loud.McCarthy plays CIA agent Susan Cooper, who does nothing more than sit behind a c...

Tomorrowland — an alternate world where everyone is happy and carefree and technological advances are beyond our wildest imaginations.  Of course, things are never really as perfect as they seem.  Disney's latest attempt to entwine theme parks with cinema results in an identity crisis riddled movie called Tomorrowland, out in th...

(Judith Raymer)  05/20/2015 11:26 AM EDT
Eloquently understated and poignant...I'll See You In My Dreams.There are no grandiose overtures to lure the audience in, but as soon as the film starts rolling, the trance begins. The plot is incidental; the story profound.At a time when our elders are undervalued, and not fully respected as individuals, writer/director Brett Haley (The New Year; ... Read More
