The Expendables 2 4K Ultra HD Review
The Expendables 2   The Expendables 2 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/02/2017 10:00 AM EST
It's very rare when a sequel manages to be as good as the original movie and even rarer still when the sequel is actually better than the original.  You can probably count on your right hand how many times that has happened in filmmaking but, if you did, you would have to include The Expendables 2 in that illustrious grouping.  ...

When The Expendables came out seven years ago, it was a who's who of today's best action heroes and promised to be jam-packed with the type of work they are known for.  It didn't disappoint and spawned two more films in the franchise.  The original offered another Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) production as he not only starred in t...

La La Land 4K Ultra HD Review
La La Land   La La Land 4K Ultra HD Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  05/01/2017 3:54 PM EST
If we all love a good movie/musical (and past success dictates we do) then La La Land is a movie that everyone must see.  It's a simple, romantic movie, full of song and dance, that sways together in sync with the harmonic melody of the underlying story.  There is a reason that this film was the winner of six Academy Awards, including...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/01/2017 10:09 AM EST
There is nothing quite like a good old-fashioned western and when done right, it can be entertaining and enjoyable.  From the outlaws to the lawmen, and the gunfights that take over a small town, they are a part of movie history that continues to this day.  Ten years ago, Lionsgate decided to add to the Western movie collection ...

Animal Kingdom Blu-ray Review
Animal Kingdom: The Complete First Season   Animal Kingdom Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/27/2017 4:00 PM EST
Every family is dysfunctional in some way or another, but the Cody clan takes that idea to new heights.  As the core of the TNT drama Animal Kingdom, based on the critically acclaimed Australian film of the same name, they are as "white trash" as they come.  Drugs, partying and a successful robbery business makes up their core b...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/25/2017 8:44 AM EST
Everything's coming up zombies right now and zombie movies are a hot commodity.  We've seen it countless times now, where an epidemic sweeps the world and people turn into soulless, brain-eating creatures terrorizing those that are still human. While The Girl With All the Gifts encompasses some of those ideas, there is so much more going on wi... Read More

McDonald's and its trademark "Golden Arches" are known worldwide for serving hot food quickly.  In any restaurant you walk into, you will see a sign proclaiming Ray Kroc as its founder.  While not truly incorrect, that statement doesn't reveal the whole story surrounding the multimillion dollar corporation.  Ray Kroc may ha...

In 2003, a relatively unknown actress, Kate Beckinsale (Pearl Harbor), along with director Len Wiseman (Total Recall), created a new gothic/steampunk/action/sci-fi franchise entitled Underworld. Since then, we have been treated to various adventures in a world dominated by Vampires and Lycans and now, in 2017, Sony Pictures and Screen Gems have unl... Read More

(Jennifer Broderick)  04/21/2017 10:54 AM EST
Since 1999 M. Night Shyamalan has given us some really thought provoking and plot-twisting films, and, this week, his latest film, Split, is available on Blu-ray. Split follows the story of Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy; X-Men: Apocalypse), who suffers from dissociative identity disorder, or multiple personality disorder, and has 24 separa...

Donnie Darko Blu-ray Review
Donnie Darko (4-Disc Limited Edition)   Donnie Darko Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  04/18/2017 8:46 AM EST
This movie is not easily digestible.  It demands your attention, especially during multiple viewings.  It was an instant cult classic upon its release 16 years ago and it remains so to this day.  And now, it finally gets the release it deserves and, of course, it comes from Arrow!The film is described by its director as "The Cat...
