Victoria & Abdul Blu-ray Review
Victoria & Abdul   Victoria & Abdul Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/18/2017 9:54 AM EDT
Queen Victoria (Judi Dench; Skyfall) was known for being cantankerous and mean especially as she aged so it's interesting that later in her life she found an unlikely friendship in a poor young man from India.  Their relationship became a thorn in the side of the British Empire and her household staff but she obviously didn't care and as the Q...

Home Again Blu-ray Review
Home Again   Home Again Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/12/2017 11:18 AM EDT
As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated, "It takes a village to raise a child" and it certainly seems that way in Reese Witherspoon's (Walk the Line) latest romantic comedy, Home Again.  While the concept is only one part of the plot, it seems to be a fairly significant part and one of the reasons three young men are...

Game of Thrones Blu-ray Review
Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season   Game of Thrones Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  12/12/2017 10:02 AM EDT
Season Seven means only seven episodes of the highly acclaimed and much-anticipated Game of Thrones and with only one more season announced, Season Seven is one to revel in and absorb every single detail because as the catchphrase of this protolithic series has changed, so has changed the Game for the Iron Throne. "Winter is here" and the... Read More

Wind River Blu-ray Review
Wind River   Wind River Blu-ray Review
(Kaileigh Etheridge)  11/14/2017 11:36 AM EDT
Wind River takes place on a tight-knit Indian Reservation called Wind River where we are introduced to Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner; The Bourne Legacy), a wildlife officer and outdoor aficionado. While out tracking, he discovers a frozen teenage girl lying in the snow.  She is bloodied and barefoot, so it is assume... Read More

Preacher Blu-ray Review
Preacher: The Complete Second Season   Preacher Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/13/2017 4:13 PM EDT
In the ever-growing world of graphic novels turned movie/television shows, AMC's Preacher is well on its way to Season 3 in 2018 and Season 2 out for release on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital download this week.  The Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg run production continued to delight fans this year with a "road trip" and the same snarky...

Patti Cake$ Blu-ray Review
Patti Cake$   Patti Cake$ Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/13/2017 10:22 AM EDT
Patti Cakes, Patti Cakes, bakers…this isn't that kind of movie.  When one hears the term "patty cake", we generally think of the beloved children's game and hear that song running through our head.  In this case, Patti Cake$ takes on a whole new meaning as it is a nickname Patricia Dombrowski's (Danielle Macdona...

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York Blu-ray Review
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York   Home Alone 2: Lost in New York Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/10/2017 11:39 AM EDT
It's hard to believe that it was twenty-five years ago that Kate (Catherine O'Hara; Frankenweenie) and Peter (John Heard; Big) McCallister lost track of their son Kevin (Macaulay Culkin; My Girl) for the second time in two years as the family went on vacation.  I mean…really!?!  Who forgets their ki...

The Crown Blu-ray Review
The Crown: The Complete First Season   The Crown Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  11/07/2017 10:53 AM EDT
Netflix has created an empire all unto themselves with their Netflix originals- both with their movies and television series.   A unique feature of Netflix is that they refuse to release their shows on a weekly basis, letting their viewers binge the show all at once.  Thank goodness for that, because The Crown, a story abou...

The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
The Glass Castle   The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/06/2017 10:46 AM EDT
So many times in Hollywood films the alcoholism of one of the characters becomes the main focus of the film.  We see the individual falling down, slurring their words, making horrible life choices, being abusive and destroying, at best, their own lives and at worst the lives of those around them. While The Glass Castle addresses the ... Read More

Annabelle: Creation Blu-ray Review
Annabelle: Creation   Annabelle: Creation Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  10/26/2017 9:14 AM EDT
A common phobia seems to be the fear of dolls, particularly old, porcelain dolls. When you have that fear and couple it with the doll actually being possessed, it's the stuff nightmares are made of.  Creepy looking faces that talk would probably make anyone run away screaming but Annabelle definitely evokes that reaction.In the latest...
