War is a polarizing subject.  Is it necessary? Do the ends justify the means?  For hundreds of years, countries have sent their young adults off to kill or be killed with mixed results.  With today's technological advances, the risks of casualties may seem smaller but can actually be just the opposite.  Gavin Hood's (End...

Opa!  Nia Vardalos (Connie and Carla) does it again.  A sequel 14 years in the making, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 has all the laughs and emotional baggage we loved the first time around.  All of our favorite characters return to remind us of the craziness surrounding the Portokalos family, while they navigate through new challenges&h...

Anyone who would say 10 Cloverfield Lane is a sequel to 2008's Cloverfield would be wrong.  It's more like the long distance cousin…they share a few similarities, but are very different on almost every level.  Gone is the shaky, "home video" footage used in the first movie.  No more guessing who the enemy is ...

Known for their cute, fun animated feature films, Disney takes a drastic turn with their new release, Zootopia.   Usually shying away from controversial topics, this time they delve in head on to one of the most stressful topics plaguing our country right now - racial tension.  Along with other moral messages, the film artfully navig...

For those who loved 2013's Olympus Has Fallen, this year's sequel, London Has Fallen, will surely live up to expectations. Many of the original cast has returned to make this action adventure film familiar on so many levels and enticing to fans of the original.  However, with a new director (Babak Najafi; Banshee Origins) on board, there are e...

In 22 years, Director Alex Proyas (The Crow) has made 6 major motion pictures.  Some have become cult classics, while others were less than memorable. Regardless, one can usually discern a Proyas film, as his directing style is somewhat unique and his latest creation, Gods of Egypt, is no exception.  With sweeping visuals, reminiscent of ...

RELAX, They've Done It!It's right time nowWell, now…It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since Ben Stiller gave us fashion Icon Derek Zoolander bursting onto the big screen in the 2001 classic Zoolander. Love it, or hate it, there seemed to be no in-between for those that saw it. For those that loved it, it became a classic with lines... Read More

(Allison Hazlett)  2/11/2016 10:02 AM EDT
Being single sucks.  At least to most women that's the way it seems.  We spend years trying to find the "perfect guy" only to realize he isn't so perfect.  But the alternative of being alone is so scary to some that they will do almost anything just to be in a relationship.Not Alice (Dakota Johnson; Fifty Shades of ...

(Allison Hazlett)  2/8/2016 10:17 AM EDT
Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds; Green Lantern) is no super hero.  In fact, he is probably the anti-super hero.  He doesn't care about justice, unless it involves his own quest for revenge.  He isn't interested in saving lives or bringing down the bad guys, again, unless it serves his purpose.   He's funny, crass, sarcastic, sel...
