Archer DVD Review
Archer: The Complete Season Six   Archer DVD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  04/11/2016 2:25 PM EDT
Six years ago, a little known show named Archer was showcased during San Diego Comic Con, and the rest, shall we say, is history. This zany, crazy, adult-themed comedy follows the adventures of Sterling Archer, an independent contractor, and his operatives.After a detour last year with Archer Vice, the writing team seems to be back on track, this t...

The Boss Theatrical Review
The Boss   The Boss Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/07/2016 10:57 AM EDT
For me, Melissa McCarthy is hit or miss.  Sometimes I like her stuff; other times I don't.  Mike and Molly was funny enough. Bridesmaids was hysterical and her character was great.  Spy was another example of a fun and entertaining McCarthy movie.  However, The Heat and Tammy were both awful and torturous to sit through.  S...

With the home release of Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, the circle is complete and the film series based on the novels  by Suzanne Collins is over. While Lionsgate turns it's sights to try to start up other franchises in it's wake, it also has released the four- film series in a box set for the fans.For those uninformed, The Hun... Read More

Point Break Blu-ray Review
Point Break   Point Break Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  03/29/2016 10:03 AM EDT
In 1991, a movie called Point Break hit theaters and starred Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing) and Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon).  It was a surfer's/stoner's dream and has a cult-like following.  In 2015,  someone at Warner Brothers Entertainment thought it would be a good idea to remake the film but using all ex...

"What would make a man brave a blizzard, and kill in cold blood, I'm sure I don't know. You'd be surprised what a man would do."But with Tarantino at the helm, you know people are gonna die!The Hateful Eight, ironically Quentin Tarantino's eighth major motion picture, is out now on Blu-ray and DVD.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Blu-ray Review
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens   Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Blu-ray Review
(Eric English)  03/28/2016 1:02 PM EDT
Few spectacles of screen transcend generations with as much cultural reverberations as Star Wars. To revel in its current incarnation is to return to its roots as an experimental space opera, crafted in the mind of a man who would come to be both revered and despised for following his calling.Spanning the gamut of nearly four decades from the belov...

Those lovable chipmunks are back, and this time they are headed on a Road Trip, or, aptly called in the chipmunk vernacular,  "A Road Chip"Dave has decided it is time for The Chipmunks to settle down in life and concentrate more on being teenagers than living the life of musicians. Aside from that, not much has changed for our little... Read More

How well do you really know your friends and neighbors?  They live among us, hiding in plain sight. In the 1980's cold war era, Russian spies infiltrate American society and feed intelligence back to the KGB and other countries.  Trained to "blend in" these seemingly normal Americans could be anyone you know.  That is the p...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice   Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  03/24/2016 8:37 AM EDT
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been one of those highly anticipated super hero movies.  Beginning last year, my friends and family started taking sides and debating which hero would, or should, win.  Merchandise made its way into stores and online even before the holidays, and the first "sneak peak" debuted a year a...

Eye in the Sky Theatrical Review
Eye in the Sky   Eye in the Sky Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  03/23/2016 1:20 PM EDT
War is a polarizing subject.  Is it necessary? Do the ends justify the means?  For hundreds of years, countries have sent their young adults off to kill or be killed with mixed results.  With today's technological advances, the risks of casualties may seem smaller but can actually be just the opposite.  Gavin Hood's (End...
