Riverdale DVD Review
Riverdale: The Complete First Season   Riverdale DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/14/2017 10:11 AM EDT
In today's world of entertainment full of superheroes, someone decided it was a good idea to base a television show on the Archie Comic book series.  Since 1941 the characters have become familiar to generations of comic lovers worldwide and now they appear on television though not in the same vein as the comics.  All the regulars are...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/11/2017 10:06 AM EDT
I was going to make a joke about "two Avengers walk onto an Indian reservation" but Wind River is no laughing matter. Based on a true story, it is a hard look at life on a reservation and the forgotten Native Americans who live there.  A true crime drama, there is more going on than meets the eye, offering up all ...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/10/2017 12:36 PM EDT
If you never saw 2014's The Nut Job, you missed out on some really cute, furry animals scrounging for a few nuts.  Well, there is more to the story than that but that gives you a basic overview.Three years later, the cuteness is back in The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature. Surly (Will Arnett; Arrested Development) and t...

(Jennifer Broderick)  08/09/2017 9:52 AM EDT
Camelot - the age of innocence, love, and peace.  Camelot- an age that whirls in the fantasy of a King that will bring prosperity and peace in a land fraught with battle scars.  Camelot- one that will begin with a man pulling a sword from a stone- Excaliber.    We've all grown up on Camelot – our parents with JFK&...

Blindspot Blu-ray Review
Blindspot: The Complete Second Season   Blindspot Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/08/2017 8:38 AM EDT
Suspenseful dramas that captivate the audience week upon week and keep them engaged are a rare find, and if you watch Warner Bros. Blindspot you will know that there are not many shows made like this one.  Created by Martin Gero and produced by Greg Berlanti, who has worked on Everwood as well as the DC's Arrowverse, no won...

The Dinner Blu-ray Review
The Dinner   The Dinner Blu-ray Review
(Andres Andy Rozo, Jr)  08/07/2017 4:39 PM EDT
You're invited to see "The Dinner" for a not so fun and yet thought provoking two hours. At first, you'll be confused, at least, I was, by the narration and exactly what is going on in this third incarnation (Dutch and Italian were first & second) of Herman Koch's 2009 book about two estranged brothers and their families.Stan Lohman (...

Crashing Blu-ray Review
Crashing: The Complete First Season   Crashing Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/07/2017 9:46 AM EDT
Look up the definition of the word crashing online and you come up with several options... Merriam-Webster defines it as utter, absolute while The Urban dictionary describes it as either coming down from a drug high or attending an event that is not publicized or that one has not invited to.  It can also mean staying with friends unexpectedly ...

HBO is on a roll.  Most of their shows and documentaries are excellent productions that win awards and critical praise.  Of course, I'm sure it's easier to create top quality work when only 7-13 episodes are being produced but the production quality is top rate nonetheless.  One of their latest endeavors is a seven part miniseries ca...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/01/2017 9:13 AM EDT
In 1979 George Burns (Oh, God!), Art Carney (Last Action Hero) and Lee Strasberg (...and justice for all) starred in director Martin Brest's (Scent of a Woman) comedy Going in Style. In 2017 Zach Braff (Scrubs) directed and produced a remake of the film starring Michael Caine (The Dark Knight), Morgan Freeman (The Shaw...

The Circle   The Circle Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  08/01/2017 8:53 AM EDT
Ever wonder what it's like working for a large Tech company? How would you like to be able to access information and be "dialed in" 24 hours a day/7 days a week? What if it isn't all it's cracked up to be?  People warn that technology is taking over our world and The Circle gives one scenario of how things could be.Based on the book ... Read More
