Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
The Complete Fourth Season   Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/09/2017 9:56 AM EST
In the past, there have been television shows about life in prison.  That is nothing original.  However, most of them focus on men in prison so when Orange is the New Black, which views life in a women's correctional facility, debuted on Netflix on July 11, 2013, it was somewhat groundbreaking.  Not only was it differen...

Fifty Shades Darker Blu-ray Review

For those who might have missed the theatrical release (and, those who didn't), the highly anticipated Fifty Shades Darker is being released on Blu-ray & DVD (with a Digital HD copy included).  The explosively popular second installment of the erotic (ahem) literary Fifty Shades series, and sequel to the "not e...

Divorce Blu-ray Review
The Complete First Season   Divorce Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/08/2017 4:22 PM EST
HBO has more original programming than ever before and the majority of it is top notch, award winning fare.  This year, they added another show to their line up and it seems to want to continue the tradition of excellence they have put forth.  Divorce debuted on October 9, 2016, and by November it had been renewed for a second season. &nb...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Theatrical Review
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2   Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/04/2017 9:50 AM EST
In 2014, Marvel Studios released one of their lesser known movies, Guardians of the Galaxy.  Expecting the film to be modestly successful, I'm sure they were shocked when it became a huge summer blockbuster.  With cute characters, funny moments, a kick butt soundtrack and some great special effects, it quickly became an audience ...

The Salesman Blu-ray Review
The Salesman   The Salesman Blu-ray Review
(Sean Ferguson)  05/02/2017 1:59 PM EST
It always amazes me as to what makes a picture popular. Is it the stars headlining the film? Is it the studio that releases the film? Is it all the advertising used to promote it? What if it all came down to the story that drove the film? If that were the case, The Salesman would be a box office success right up there alongside Logan... Read More

Gold Blu-ray Review
Gold   Gold Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/02/2017 11:55 AM EST
In 1995, Bre-X, a Canadian mining company announced to the world they had found significant gold deposits in Busang, Indonesia.  Overnight, they became a huge success and their penny stock suddenly was worth significantly more money per share.  However, by 1997, everything fell apart when independent consultants couldn't replicate the...

A Dog's Purpose Blu-ray Review
A Dog's Purpose   A Dog's Purpose Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/02/2017 10:58 AM EST
Everyone knows that even before A Dog's Purpose opened in theaters this past January it was embroiled in a scandal.  A video surfaced of what looked like a trainer forcing a terrified dog into a pool of rushing water and animal cruelty allegations were tossed around.  What started out as PR for a movie full of cute dogs ended up...

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.  ...

The Expendables 4K Ultra HD Review
The Expendables   The Expendables 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/02/2017 9:29 AM EST
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...
