Retirement - the goal of most working class citizens of the world. But once the excitement and novelty of having your life to yourself 24 hours a day is over, what do you do? What would society let you do? Are you still relevant in today's workforce? Can today's generation learn from  the elderly? These questions, and more, are th... Read More

In 2014, Ice Cube (Boyz in the Hood) and Kevin Hart (Get Hard) teamed up for the hilarious comedy Ride Along.  Now they are back for round two and the laughs are as abundant as ever.  In Ride Along 2, the soon to be brothers-in-law once again find themselves caught up in a web of illegal activity while trying to solve a crime.Ben Barber (...

Making movies is a difficult process - from budgeting to casting, writing the screenplay, as well as scoring and special effects. That being said, writing a great movie is, truly, like catching lightning in a bottle. When the perfect storm of events and talented people come together we are gifted with films like Jaws, The Godfather, Schindler's... Read More

The latest project from M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense), The Visit,  is available now on Blu-ray, and while The Visit has some cringe worthy moments and a few frights it's a little on the tame side as far as horror movies go.Becca (Olivia DeJonge; Hiding) and Tyler's (Ed Oxenbould; Alexander and The No Good, Very ...

The Transporter, starring Jason Statham (The Expendables), was a trilogy in the early 2000's that all but put Statham on the acting map, proving he could carry a film as a leading man.  As Frank Martin, he was the perfect combination of calm, cool and collected, with an element of "thug" underneath.  The first film in the series...

The Green Inferno Blu-ray Review

(Leonard Buccellato)  01/05/2016 3:22 PM EDT
The Green Inferno, the latest film by Eli Roth (Hostel), was clearly inspired by Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust. It is also clear that Roth owes a debt of gratitude to the Italian filmmaker, since he was the king of low-budget gore. Deodato's film was banned in many countries, and most people at the time were uncertain of the origin o... Read More

X-Files Blu-ray Review

Whether or not you watched The X-Files from 1993- 2002, you would have had to been living under a rock to not know the names Scully and Mulder.  The characters, the actors who played them, and even the theme song for the television series, were widely known and easily identifiable.  For nine seasons, these FBI agents invest...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/24/2015 10:50 AM EDT
Professional sports is big business.  Billions of dollars a year are spent on tickets and merchandising, not to mention players' contracts.  The NFL is so big they have their own day of the week, and commercial airtime for the Super Bowl costs an exorbitant amount of money for a 30 second spot.  You can only imagine what would happen...

Daddy's Home Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/23/2015 4:50 PM EDT
I think I have finally figured out why Will Ferrell (Elf) has a movie career.  It's so he can make moronic comedies that really aren't very funny.  His latest endeavor, Daddy's Home, is more of the same mind numbing antics we have come to expect from him.  I can only hope at some point someone has the common sense to stop...
