Who knew the woods could be so magical? Apparently director Rob Marshall (Chicago) did when he made the renowned Broadway musical, Into the Woods, come to life. With the world famous cast, he takes you on a journey, which blows you away. There is definitely magic in these woods.The collaborative effort of the cast makes watching the extras worthwhi...

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 Blu-ray Review
Sons of Anarchy: Season Seven   Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  03/15/2015 12:01 AM EDT
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...

Horrible Bosses 2 Blu-ray Review
Horrible Bosses 2   Horrible Bosses 2 Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/24/2015 8:27 AM EDT
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...

Big Hero 6 Blu-ray Review
Big Hero 6   Big Hero 6 Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/23/2015 4:35 PM EDT
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 ...

Dumb And Dumber To Blu-ray Review
Dumb And Dumber To   Dumb And Dumber To Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  02/19/2015 10:25 PM EDT
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

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Blu-ray Review
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day   Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/12/2015 1:09 PM EDT
We've all had one of those "Murphy's law" kind of days – anything that can go wrong, will.   For Alexander Cooper it seems every day is like that and the day before his 12th birthday is no exception.  He wakes up to find everyone in his grade has been invited to the cool kid's party the same day as his, th...

Glee DVD Review
Glee: The Complete Fifth Season   Glee DVD Review
(Sean Ferguson)  02/12/2015 1:04 PM EDT
So I guess I have to start by coming clean. Hi My name is Sean Ferguson and I'm a Glee fan. It's sad and true and no matter how far this series goes off base I continue to watch. It may be because I'm a huge music buff….or maybe it's because when I was in school I was picked on too (though no slushies were ever thrown my way)... Read More

The Best of Me Blu-ray Review
The Best of Me   The Best of Me Blu-ray Review
(Michelle Koesten)  02/09/2015 12:02 PM EDT
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...

"Everything old is new again" and in this vain Disney has rereleased the animated classic 101 Dalmatians.  This special Diamond Edition introduces the 1961 film to a whole new audience and is sure to delight anyone who watches it.  Regardless of whether or not you've seen it before, the Blu-ray/ DVD is a great purchase to ad...
