The boys are back in school for another round of parody comedic action fun in 22 Jump Street, starring Jonah Hill (Superbad, Wolf on Wall Street) and Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Haywire). The first film, 21 Jump Street, based on the 80s television show of the same name, was a smash success by taking a serious drama show and making ... Read More

The latest young adult book turned movie, "The Fault in Our Stars", will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.

(Sean Ferguson)  05/29/2014 11:29 PM EDT
And I know it's trueThat visions are seldom all they seem….. When it comes to the tale of Sleeping Beauty, the previous visions are definitely not what they have seemed. With the current release of Disney's "Maleficent", it seems as if the fairytale of our youth was a simplified, one sided tall tale. Yes, as we all know, t... Read More

X-Men: Days of Future Past   X-Men: Days of Future Past Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  05/22/2014 11:42 AM EDT
X-Men: Days of Future Past can best be summed up with a quote from one of my favorite movies, Total Recall (1990). "I've got to hand it to you… that's the best mindf**k yet." However, just simply stating this quote is taking the easy way out when trying to write a review of one of the most head-spinning comic book movies to dat... Read More

Draft Day Theatrical Review
Draft Day   Draft Day Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  04/11/2014 3:18 PM EDT
With the NFL Draft a month away, the movie Draft Day will be hoping for a lengthy run at the box-office. The film takes you to the innards of high pressure picking and trading not seen during a real NFL draft.  We saw one side of the coin, player management, in the movie Jerry Maguire when it was released in 1996, but here we get a Hollywood l...

(John Delia)  04/03/2014 3:03 PM EDT
Next to the Iron Man series, Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes in a close second.  The very compelling storyline, creative action, excellent direction and above all good acting combine to put this super hero in the forefront.  Not so sci-fi fantasy, the Captain works to protect and serve. He's an Ethan Hunt with more cour... Read More
