Transformers, the highly anticipated movie that this reviewer has been waiting for many years was finally released this week. The questions are does it live up to all its hype? Does it live up to the 1980's cartoon? Does it bring back those childhood memories? The answer, for this reviewer, is well...not really. But let's start at the beginning of ... Read More

The Die Hard series has been a roller coaster for the movie going public. The first movie is considered by most one of the best action movies ever made. However like any success there are always downfalls and by the end of Die Hard 3: Die Hard With a Vengeance the series seemed to Die...Hard. Surprisingly "Live Free Die Hard" finally brin...

Ratatouille Theatrical Review

(Nathan M Rose)  06/17/2007 5:15 PM EST
First off let me preface this review by saying I am not the biggest fan of Pixar. I feel that that previous story lines have been weak. Even though Pixar's movies have always been somewhat entertaining, they've never reached the the level of classic Disney animation and storytelling. However, with Ratatouille, I saw a story that begins to rival cla... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  12/27/2006 12:27 PM EST
Rocky V (which most people considered the end of the series) had Rocky back in inner city Philadelphia and pretty much content with his life. He was not wealthy but had his dignity and his family. Approximately, ten years have past since we last saw Rocky.   The Italian Stallion is now the owner and host of his Italian Restaurant (appropr... Read More
