Based on a Nicolas Sparks novel, The Best Of Me is out on Blu-ray and DVD.   Having not read any of his books, and only having seen a few of his movies, I didn't know what to expect.  A friend did say she threw the book across the room at the end, so I was a little concerned about the ending. While I am a fan of two of its s...

(Nathan M Rose)  01/27/2015 8:23 AM EST
A couple of years ago 20th Century Fox launched a new satirical spy drama on their FX channel called Archer. The show caught on due to its tongue-in-cheek off-the-wall humor, it's distinctive style of animation, and the fact that adult audiences found the show good enough to wind down to after a days work.  For four seasons Archer pre...

I'm always fascinated by what motivates people, especially serial killers, to do the depraved things they do.  Unfortunately for me, "A Walk Among the Tombstones" doesn't delve that deeply into the Psyches of the duo killing and chopping up the women who are loved by drug dealers in NY.  Instead it tells the story of Mat...
