Last year, Mila Kunis (That 70's Show), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), and Kathryn Hahn (Transparent) made moms everywhere feel a little better about themselves and had us all laughing in the theater at Bad Moms. As Amy, Kiki and Carla respectively, they gave us moms permission to be less than perfect.  Now that we are about to hit holiday... Read More

In 2011, The Planet of the Apes saga found itself getting a reboot from the 1970's version of the story.  In this reimagined world, we see how the apes became more intelligent as the movie focused on one specific ape named Caesar (Andy Serkis; The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).  Caesar was born in a science lab where the ...

Over the years there have been numerous films that include the sport of boxing as a backdrop and even a few that include wrestling but until 2011's Warrior there has never been a movie that showcases the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting.  Just like Rocky or Million Dollar Baby, the action itself isn't th...

The Birds Blu-ray Review
Alfred Hitchcock: The Ultimate Collection   The Birds Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/20/2017 4:01 PM EST
Alfred Hitchcock is arguably one of the best directors of all time.  Known as the "Master of Suspense" he helped to innovate psychological thriller films and influence many of the directors working today.  His "personal view" approach to camera work has been copied countless times over as it seems to create a more inti...

There are people who selflessly put their lives on the line for others all the time and our civil service workers can be counted among this group.  Police officers and firefighters put themselves in harms way without much thought to the danger that could befall them.  They are unsung heroes who don't get as much credit as they deserve.&nb...

In 2009, the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women opened its doors with 120 students.  A middle and high school charter school in inner-city Baltimore, it graduated its first class in 2016 with 60 young ladies (100 percent of the senior class) attending college.  The all-girls school also boasts a winning step team and in the 2015-...

There is a reason they say the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year and everyone sings songs about it.  It's a time when people tend to be more generous and forgiving and a spirit of peace and goodwill abounds.  That is until you walk into your local mall or superstore.  The Holidays have become so commercialized that it ...

Everyone should have a few good friends they can count on and keep for life and many people meet that group in their college years.  There is something about being in our late teens/early twenties with a new found freedom that makes us want to go out and do stupid things with others, which helps us form a bond with the people we are close to a...

Most little boys and some little girls dream of being a superhero.  Fighting crime with special powers, doing good for humanity, and taking down the bad guys has a certain allure.  It's part of the reason comic books are so popular.  But every so often a regular person decides to take on the challenge, generally with disastrous resul...

In 1981, a musical by Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen called Dreamgirls hit Broadway.  Based on the 1960's R&B acts trying and somewhat succeeding to make it in show business, it was nominated for 13 Tony awards, ultimately winning 6 plus two Grammys as well.  In 2006, Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast – 2017 live-acti...
