It is the golden age of remakes in Hollywood these days, and next up in the remake playbook is the recreation of the 1982 smash horror hit Poltergeist from producer Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spider-man) and director Gil Kenan (City of Ember, Monster House).While not a direct word-for-word remake of the original film, Poltergeist fol...

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". I never watched "Lost" ( yes I know I'm one of the rare few that didn't), but I've been told that it was frustrating in later years of the seasons and the ending wa... Read More

It seems, these days, zombies have replaced vampires as the most popular monster in pop culture. Zombie films, video games, and television shows have saturated our society so much it's easy to dismiss most of them. But then sometimes, just sometimes, a show like iZombie comes along and makes you revisit the entire genre.iZombie, which is based ... Read More

(Bonnie Greenberg)  10/6/2015 3:18 PM EDT
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...

(Allison Hazlett)  10/5/2015 10:15 AM EDT
I wanted to give Jane the Virgin points for originality, until I found out it was based on a Telanovela called Juana La Virgen.  As interesting and unique as the premise is, in a world full of superheroes and zombies, I just couldn't help but find it to be a little dumb.  Garnering critical acclaim and a Golden Globe for the show'...

(Nathan M Rose)  9/29/2015 10:46 AM EDT
Director Kevin Smith once said that the golden age of independent films has left us, and what we are left with is just big studio films created by a committee. Most days, I hold to these truths. However, once in a while, a film comes along that throws caution to the wind and surprises you.Cop Car, written and directed by Jon Watts (director of the ... Read More

Entourage Blu-ray Review

(Allison Hazlett)  9/28/2015 11:38 AM EDT
I'm not sure why studios think it's a good idea to take every successful TV show and make it into a feature film. I understand they feel it will be an easy moneymaker with a "built in audience", but too many times they come into it with a half-cocked script that doesn't do the show justice.  While Entourage: The Movi...
