The Boov are coming, The Boov are coming!!!  What exactly are "Boov", you ask?  They are the cute, colorful alien creatures at the center of Dreamworks' new theatrical release Home.   Out in theaters on March 27, 2015, this animated film is an hour and a half of typical family entertainment. The Boov are a society...

After three movies of playing bit characters in the background, the Penguins of Madagascar finally have gotten their starring roles.  The black and white flightless birds, that have always had about ten minutes of screen time, are now the main players of the hour and a half long The Penguins of Madagascar.  With their crazy strategic...

Sons of Anarchy, one of the most successful cable TV series ever, gave its viewers a good send off.  Unlike other series finales, it doesn't leave anything up in the air but wraps things up tightly.After viewers were left reeling from the chaos of season 6, Season 7 welcomes back the gang to try and deal with everything and put things back...

Cinderella…We have all seen it in some form or another.  The story has been told time and again. Of course, arguably the best version is the Disney animated classic.  Now Disney is trying to outdo itself with a live action movie out in theaters today.This latest attempt is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor) and stars Lily James (Do...

We all know the story of Moses. Born a slave, grew up in the home of the Egyptian Pharaoh and eventually led the Jewish people out of slavery.   If you are over the age of thirty you can remember watching Charlton Heston (Ben-Hur) playing the role in The Ten Commandments.  Now Director Ridley Scott (Prometheus, Alien) has created his...

Recently I watched two sequels on Blu-ray - Dumb and Dumber To and Horrible Bosses 2. The latter was the better of the two films, but that isn't saying much.  The aptly named Horrible Bosses 2 IS horrible and boring to boot. Once again Nick (Jason Bateman; Arrested Development), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis; We're The Millers) and Dale (Char...

When Disney released Big Hero 6 in 2014, they only slightly altered their successful animated movie formula.  Yes, it is funny.  Yes, there is a cute non-human friend guaranteed to offer mass merchandising appeal.  Yes, there is a terrible villain who must be stopped.   The only thing missing was the beautiful princess and ...

(Nathan M Rose)  02/19/2015 10:25 PM EST
Lets get this out the way first Dumb and Dumber To is …well….dumb, I mean REALLY dumb. However, if you are familiar with the original Farrelly Brothers film, Dumb and Dumber (1994), you would except this. The story is pretty simplistic. After twenty years of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey; Ace Ventura, The Mask) pretending to be cat... Read More

Ok I admit it…I read the books. Well, I haven't finished the third one yet but I figure I still have time before they make it into a movie.   Of course I'm speaking of the fan fiction turned novel turn major motion picture juggernaut that is Fifty Shade of Grey.  From the moment the film adaptation was announced t...
