(Maureen Buccellato)  09/14/2015 9:28 AM EST
The character of Batman has been one of the most popular comic character since he emerged onto the comic book scene back in 1939.  Since then, we have seen many incarnations of Batman in print, television, and film; some comical, some dark and serious. Gotham brings a whole new dissection of his story to life.The show, which airs on Fox, premi... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/03/2015 1:58 PM EST
The Vampire Diaries Season 6 maybe the saddest and bloodiest one so far.  From other worldly prisons, to a new witch/vampire hybrid, the supernatural dimension went into overdrive this year.  Fans said goodbye to four main characters and several new ones that didn't make it through the season.  And, we've met Salvatore's relative...

When Mad Max: Fury Road came out in theaters this past summer, it got rave reviews from critics and audiences.  It also became a social commentary for a pro women agenda.  It led to numerous discussions, which I'm sure almost any major film wants.  I'm just not sure it deserved some of the hype it received.  As it makes its way ...

To be an independent woman in 1870's England was incredibly difficult.  To have three suitors along with that independence lent itself not only to gossip but also to trials, tribulations and heartache.  Bathsheba Everdene is the woman described above and the heroine of the movie Far From The Maddening Crowd, based on the novel by Thomas H...

Hot Pursuit Blu-ray Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/11/2015 8:51 AM EST
When you see a movie starring Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line) and Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), you have high hopes it will be good.  Sadly, Hot Pursuit completely missed the mark by not utilizing these two talented ladies. I‘m not sure what they saw in this film when they read the script, but, it isn't funny, interesting or original.... Read More

There's no place like Home? What if one day instead of going over the rainbow, Glenda's bubble came to your home and relocated you to a new house on the other side of the globe so the munchkins could live in your neighborhood? Well for the Munchkins it would be THE BEST DAY EVER! And so it is for the Boov! DreamWorks Animation's late... Read More

Insurgent, the second in the trilogy by Veronica Roth's Divergent series, hits stores Tuesday, August 4, on Blu-ray and DVD.  In the ever present quest for commercial dominance, I'm sure this Blu-ray will fare well based on the popularity of the book series and the stars of the movie.The film picks up pretty much where the first o...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/03/2015 4:40 PM EST
Never judge a book by its cover.  That is one of the lessons of The Casual Vacancy, the J.K Rowling book adaptation that was a three hour miniseries on BBC and HBO. Lesson two – our actions affect those around us, so be careful of what you say and do because it can have unintended consequences.=Pagford seems like a quaint, idyl... Read More
