In 2014, Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) made a career comeback to action films with a little-known movie entitled John Wick. It featured the perfect revenge story, a man hell-bent on avenging the death of his dog that his wife gave him from beyond the grave. The movie had everything going for it — great plot, great acting, great action, ... Read More

With a hit song, "Everything is Awesome" and an amazing first movie, The Lego Batman Movie is an easy ride into building a franchise.  With the advent of the television show Gotham and the renewed interest in Superheroes and Villains by the younger generation, Batman is a huge hit with the children of all ages.  Lionsg...

So much is different in other parts of the world from what we know and are used to in the United States. There are strict rules regarding women having their heads covered, what theater and music can be enjoyed, and how the police deal with crimes. Relationships between husbands and wives are also different.  Yet much o...

Rings Theatrical Review
Rings   Rings Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  02/03/2017 11:26 AM EDT
It had been a long while since I'd seen a horror flick.  I loved them as a kid, but somewhere along the way viewing them just trailed off.  So, when the opportunity presented itself to view the latest chapter in the RING franchise, I wasn't so sure how I felt about seeing it.  Then, I discovered that it had been directed by F. Javier... Read More

The Space Between Us Theatrical Review
The Space Between Us   The Space Between Us Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/03/2017 10:34 AM EDT
Why has travel to Mars become such a hot movie topic of late?  Last year's The Martian was a cautionary tale of space exploration and the triumph of the human spirit.  Other than the clichéd ending, it was a gripping and moving commentary on life and outer space.  This month's The Space Between Us a...

Retelling a story from a unique perspective, and opening the audience's eyes to human nature through the voice of man's best friend, brought A Dog's Purpose to life - captivating the audience through laughter, love, and tears.   Director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat) has created a masterpiece based on W. Bruce Cameron's ... Read More

(Javier Conte)  01/20/2017 8:57 AM EDT
As great as it is to eat a gourmet meal, sometimes, all you're really craving is some junk food; something cheap and tasty that you can just mindlessly eat for a little bit of instant pleasure. For me, action movies are my junk food. If Mad Max: Fury Road is the cinematic equivalent of a Five Guys burger, then xXx: Return of Xander Cage is like a Q... Read More

Live By Night   Live By Night Theatrical Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  01/11/2017 10:25 AM EDT
Step back into time to a prolific era when men returned from The Great War and lost themselves, where life was easy, alcohol was for the back rooms, speakeasies were the thing to do, and the Irish and Italian Mobs ran the country. Live By Night transports you back into a time that has gone by the wayside- a glorious, relaxing time full of...
