(Maureen Buccellato)  9/14/2015 9:28 AM EDT
The character of Batman has been one of the most popular comic character since he emerged onto the comic book scene back in 1939.  Since then, we have seen many incarnations of Batman in print, television, and film; some comical, some dark and serious. Gotham brings a whole new dissection of his story to life.The show, which airs on Fox, premi... Read More

London in the 1960's was a hub for gangland crime, but there was one gang that stood out from the rest - The Kray's. "Legend", directed by Brian Helgeland (Payback, Mystic River), brings the biographical story of the celebrity gangsters Ronnie and Reggie to the big screen, with Tom Hardy (Bronson, The Dark Knight Rises) playing bo...

The Visit Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett)  9/10/2015 11:28 AM EDT
Like some of M. Night Shyamalan's other movies, The Visit ends with a twist you didn't see coming.  I expected the typical poltergeist infestation or supernatural explanation for the characters' behavior, but what I ultimately got was much darker and more realistic.  It almost makes you wonder what sort of demonic dialogue goes on inside ...

The Vampire Diaries Blu-ray Review
The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Blu-ray Review   The Vampire Diaries Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett)  9/3/2015 1:58 PM EDT
The Vampire Diaries Season 6 maybe the saddest and bloodiest one so far.  From other worldly prisons, to a new witch/vampire hybrid, the supernatural dimension went into overdrive this year.  Fans said goodbye to four main characters and several new ones that didn't make it through the season.  And, we've met Salvatore's relative...

(Allison Hazlett)  8/31/2015 4:16 PM EDT
When Mad Max: Fury Road came out in theaters this past summer, it got rave reviews from critics and audiences.  It also became a social commentary for a pro women agenda.  It led to numerous discussions, which I'm sure almost any major film wants.  I'm just not sure it deserved some of the hype it received.  As it makes its way ...

Zac Efron (Neighbors) seems to gravitate towards movies that incorporate music.  From singing and dancing in his earlier roles, to his latest film We Are Your Friends, Efron has a connection that will most likely follow him and pop up from time to time throughout his career.  As Cole Carter, a DJ trying to make it in the LA scen...

After an extremely stale box office last week, with no films entering the market to overthrow Straight Out of Compton from the number one spot, now comes box office hopeful, No Escape. With it's real-to-life thrills and action that will have audiences holding tightly to their seats as they are taken on a wild and intense ride thr...

American Ultra Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett)  8/20/2015 4:35 PM EDT
Take Clerks, Mission: Impossible, and Point of No Return and mix them all together in a bowl.  Dump the mix into rolling papers and you've made yourself a movie called American Ultra.  Coming to theaters August 21, 2015, it is a mish-mosh of other good films trying to be played off as an original idea, but not succeedi...
