The Crown Blu-ray Review
The Crown: The Complete First Season   The Crown Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  11/07/2017 10:53 AM EDT
Netflix has created an empire all unto themselves with their Netflix originals- both with their movies and television series.   A unique feature of Netflix is that they refuse to release their shows on a weekly basis, letting their viewers binge the show all at once.  Thank goodness for that, because The Crown, a story abou...

The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
The Glass Castle   The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/06/2017 10:46 AM EDT
So many times in Hollywood films the alcoholism of one of the characters becomes the main focus of the film.  We see the individual falling down, slurring their words, making horrible life choices, being abusive and destroying, at best, their own lives and at worst the lives of those around them. While The Glass Castle addresses the ... Read More

Annabelle: Creation Blu-ray Review

(Nathan M Rose)  10/26/2017 9:14 AM EDT
A common phobia seems to be the fear of dolls, particularly old, porcelain dolls. When you have that fear and couple it with the doll actually being possessed, it's the stuff nightmares are made of.  Creepy looking faces that talk would probably make anyone run away screaming but Annabelle definitely evokes that reaction.In the latest...

The Birds Blu-ray Review
Alfred Hitchcock: The Ultimate Collection   The Birds Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/20/2017 4:01 PM EDT
Alfred Hitchcock is arguably one of the best directors of all time.  Known as the "Master of Suspense" he helped to innovate psychological thriller films and influence many of the directors working today.  His "personal view" approach to camera work has been copied countless times over as it seems to create a more inti...

There is a reason they say the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year and everyone sings songs about it.  It's a time when people tend to be more generous and forgiving and a spirit of peace and goodwill abounds.  That is until you walk into your local mall or superstore.  The Holidays have become so commercialized that it ...

Girls Trip Blu-ray Review
Girls Trip   Girls Trip Blu-ray Review

Everyone should have a few good friends they can count on and keep for life and many people meet that group in their college years.  There is something about being in our late teens/early twenties with a new found freedom that makes us want to go out and do stupid things with others, which helps us form a bond with the people we are close to a...

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Movie Blu-ray Review
Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Movie   Buffy The Vampire Slayer - The Movie Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  10/16/2017 11:33 AM EDT
When Buffy The Vampire Slayer was first released in 1992 it was mildly entertaining, grossing $16.5 million from a modest $7 million budget. Looking back on this film it should have been a smash success, considering the talent attached to it. The cast included Donald Sutherland, and Rutger Hauer, themselves Golden Globe recipients. Hell, even ... Read More

The House Blu-ray Review
The House   The House Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  10/12/2017 9:56 PM EDT
Seeing Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler's names attached to this, I thought the movie was going to be really funny. Seeing the trailer helped to cement this thought but after watching it, it proved not quite up to the task.  The House Blu-ray from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment was released on Oct. 10th. Director Andrew Jay Cohen's comed... Read More
