At one point in time Steven Seagal (Above The Law, Under Siege) was considered a true Hollywood bad-ass.  Well, those days are long gone, but Seagal continues to make films that only his younger self could pull off.Code of Honor stars Seagal as Robert Sikes, a former special-ops operative, who, after his family is killed in a drive-by shooting...

Author Stephen Elliot had a pretty messed up childhood, which lead to varying degrees of abuse – both at the hands of his father and his own drug addiction.  At least that's the way he'd like to remember it.  The truth is probably something a little different.  He chronicles his journey to the so-called truth in his memoir, The...

In today's day and age, war is a constant. We send our troops out to various countries around the world and have to ask ourselves if the damages are really worth it sometimes.  With the advanced technology that now exists in the military, some argue there are less casualties, but, in some cases, the opposite could be true. Gavin Hood's... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  06/30/2016 9:42 AM EST
The story of Tarzan has been told in many different ways over 100 years.  From live action films and television shows to books and animated features, we seem to be fascinated with the idea of a man raised among animals.  The story appeals to various facets of the population and we always seem to be drawn into the animalistic male who...

Some would argue that author Roald Dahl was a deeply disturbed individual.  Others would argue he was a brilliant writer.  Some would say he was both.  As the author of many children's and adult books, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, he cemented a place in literary hist...

It has been over 23 years since the original X-Files debuted on Fox Television, laying the groundwork for most of the modern television that we still watch today. The series centered on FBI agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and his partner Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as they tried to prove the existence of a government conspiracy on the highest ...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  06/26/2016 5:49 PM EST
He's big, green, ugly and lives in a swamp.  In 2001, we fell in love with him so much that we ended up with three sequels and a Broadway musical.  He is forever engrained in a generation's mind, and now Dreamworks has decided to release the movie that started it all on Blu-ray as the anniversary edition of&n...

What if all those cult religions that believe aliens are coming to save them were right?  What if there was something else out there?  What if some of them lived amongst us and we never even knew it?  Midnight Special explores this idea, along with the thought that a little boy can be more than he seems and the government knows more ...

The horror genre has evolved from what it was back in the 1970's and 80's, with icon films like Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street. I'm not sure that evolution is for the better, because even though graphics and special effects have advanced,the plots, scares and goriness haven't necessarily improv...

In 2003, a little fish named Nemo (Hayden Rolence; Cicero in Winter) mesmerized the world.  With his bad fin, overbearing father and adventurous spirit, he captivated us into wishing him home.  Along for that journey was his father, Marlin (Albert Brooks; Broadcast News) and a forgetful fish named Dory (Ellen DeGe...
