When most people think of the name Arnold Schwarzenegger, they think of explosions, hardcore action, and a high body count. However, with the actor, turned governor turned actor again, getting up there in age, the type of roles that Schwarzenegger is accepting are tending to be more dramatic. A  prime example of this is his latest film, A... Read More

Alfred Hitchcock was a master of directing. His films, like the man, are legendary. He could evoke emotion with one subtle take and a testament to his brilliance is how his films have stood the test of time. Fathom Events recognizes his genius and brought his classic thriller North by Northwest back to theaters for a one-week event.A... Read More

"Kind of disjointed," whispered one correspondent. "Distracting…," murmured another.  Yet, they all boisterously agreed loudly that they found themselves laughing...increasingly.  "It was very funny," many, if not all, declared.  Wherever the disconnect might be, this film is truly funny, inventiv...

CHiPs   CHiPs Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  03/23/2017 11:48 AM EDT
When I was a little girl, I loved cheesy television shows.  The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, and CHiPs were among some of my favorites.  Granted, they weren't great television by today's standards but when you are young you don't really worry about those things. It was fun television that entertained and ther... Read More

Disney's latest masterpiece, Beauty and the Beast, is a live-action adaptation based on the 1991 animated classic.  Some fans of the original (including original cast members that might have been quoted in the press) have questioned the need for or purpose of "recreating" such a timeless favorite.  Had the studio decided to ...

Ever since he first appeared in movie theaters back in 1933, we have had a fascination with one humongous ape.  King Kong became a classic and sparked not only our imaginations but spawned remakes and reincarnations of the huge beast.  In 2005, Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) brought his spin to the series in a three-hour...

Jordan Peele is known for being a comedian.  Along with his partner Keegan Michael Key (Why Him?), they have starred in their own sketch comedy show and last year's successful movie, Keanu.  So it's a little surprising to see he has written and directed a horror film called Get Out.  Based on his background it doesn...
