The Leftovers…Not Just For Dinner.Last year, HBO debuted a new series from writer Damon Lindelof, who was one of the masterminds behind the hit series "Lost". I never watched "Lost" ( yes I know I'm one of the rare few that didn't), but I've been told that it was frustrating in later years of the seasons and the ending wa... Read More

Magic Mike XXL Blu-ray Review

(Bonnie Greenberg)  10/06/2015 3:18 PM EDT
After being a fan of the original Magic Mike movie, I couldn't imagine where they would go with the story line for Magic Mike XXL. I'm a huge fan of Channing Tatum and I think he's an amazing actor (It doesn't hurt that he is totally gorgeous and a rockin' dancer).  This movie did have a slow start for me, but got be...

Cop Car   Cop Car Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  09/29/2015 10:46 AM EDT
Director Kevin Smith once said that the golden age of independent films has left us, and what we are left with is just big studio films created by a committee. Most days, I hold to these truths. However, once in a while, a film comes along that throws caution to the wind and surprises you.Cop Car, written and directed by Jon Watts (director of the ... Read More

Entourage Blu-ray Review
Entourage   Entourage Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/28/2015 11:38 AM EDT
I'm not sure why studios think it's a good idea to take every successful TV show and make it into a feature film. I understand they feel it will be an easy moneymaker with a "built in audience", but too many times they come into it with a half-cocked script that doesn't do the show justice.  While Entourage: The Movi...

Sleepy Hollow Blu-ray Review
Sleepy Hollow: The Complete Second Season   Sleepy Hollow Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/24/2015 11:43 AM EDT
I love history, especially legends and folk lore, so I was excited when Sleepy Hollow came to television in 2013.  The basic premise was interesting and, of course, centered around the tiny town in upstate New York and the antagonist, the Headless Horseman. That first season laid the foundation for an apocalyptic battle of biblical proportions... Read More
