Judge Dredd made his debut in British comic books as early as the late 1970's as a law enforcement officer in Mega City One, a dystopian society set sometime in the future. His authority includes arresting, convicting, sentencing and, if necessary, executing criminals in an effort to keep the peace. Then in 1995 Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) broug... Read More

There have been numerous books and movies about Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill over the years and in a 2002 poll, he was named the greatest Briton of all time.  He led the United Kingdom through some tumultuous times and was always seen as a great statesman.  However, behind the scenes, he wasn't necessarily as eloquent sometim...

In 1960, Anthony Perkins introduced the world to Norman Bates, a serial killer wielding a knife. It became a classic in the world of horror films and set a standard of what scares us. Over Sixty years later, his son, Oz Perkins, made his writing and directorial debut with The Blackcoat's Daughter, a psychological thriller that pays a little bit of ... Read More

The last day of school is a happy occasion for every student and teacher but especially gratifying for high school seniors finishing their formal education for good (unless of course, they plan to go to college). At Roosevelt High School, that means tons of senior pranks and teacher frustration. This year it also means teacher reviews and terminati... Read More

Seventeen years ago, Hugh Jackman (The Prestige) commanded the screen as the brooding, mutant Wolverine in the movie X-Men. We've seen his story evolve, as he becomes a reluctant hero while battling the demons of his past. He resists Charles Xavier's (Patrick Stewart; Star Trek: The Next Generation) assistance, yet aids the group in battlin... Read More

The last few seasons of HBO's hit show Girls, while still being well written and acted, has made one wonder if it is just time to pack up and go.  How long can we play out the "single, not sure I want to grow up or even how to" drama? Well, we have our answer…Six Seasons.  HBO ended the series this April on a high no... Read More

Usually when you think of a western movie you think of horses, gunslingers, saloons, and cowboys.  1992's Academy Award winner for best picture, Unforgiven, has all that and more.   With Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) at the helm, both directing and starring in it, the movie opened to well deserved critical praise and became an aud...

Resident Evil is the longest running female action series in movie history.  Based on a video game, the first film made it's way to theaters in 2002 and fifteen years later we have movie number six, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, hitting stores on 4K, Blu-ray and Digital Download. With crazier stunts, fans of the series will n... Read More

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 EDT
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...
