Gotham: The Complete Third Season   Gotham Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  09/06/2017 10:41 AM EDT
There are many superhero shows on television and on the big screen lately and some even give us a little bit of background on how the superhero got his/her start.  None are so rich in storyline and detail as the network television show, Gotham, about to start its fourth season.  Not only do we get to see the start of Bruce Wayne grow into...

MEGAN LEAVEY is an innovative interpretation of what makes a hero; specifically, during wartime.  A Bleeker Street Media film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Blackfish, City Lax: An Urban Lacrosse Story), it stars Kate Mara (House of Cards, Fantastic Four) as the young Marine Corporal.  Inspired by the touching true life story of...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/05/2017 11:51 AM EDT
In the making for the past seven years, All Eyez on Me finally hit theaters this year in June.  After the success of Straight Outta Compton two years earlier, the audience seemed ripe for another rap biopic, this time about the late Tupac Shakur (Demetrius Shipp, Jr.).  Built up into a martyr, the film chronicles his l...

(Sean Ferguson)  09/05/2017 11:33 AM EDT
Once upon a time, there was a two-time Oscar award winning actor who not only was an actor but a director as well. This Actor/Director was also very big into trying to change the world through activism roles, not only in films but also in real life. This Director - let's just for the sake of putting a name in place call him Sean. So Sean decide... Read More

Batman and Harley Quinn Blu-ray Review

(Jennifer Broderick)  08/29/2017 11:22 AM EDT
Warner Premiere, in conjunction with DC Comics, brings us back into the 1970's with an adult-ish type Batman movie. Despite the recommendation for ages 13 and older, I would definitely know your child before letting them watch this.  Many things are implied, but it doesn't take much imagination to figure out what is going on, which is a defini...

The Lion King Blu-ray Review
Lion King: Walt Disney Signature Collection   The Lion King Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/29/2017 9:19 AM EDT
Disney animation has had a long and storied past.  From the original classics like Cinderella and Bambi to the newest film, Moana, Disney has produced exceptional movies with soundtracks that touch our lives.  For many years, there seemed to be a lull in Disney films but all that changed in 1989 with&nbs...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/28/2017 5:08 PM EDT
A Ronin is described as a wandering samurai in feudal Japan who had no lord or master.  They frequently became mercenaries who killed others for money or who did jobs for hire that other people wouldn't consider attempting.  In 1998, Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) starred in a film called Ronin, however, there were no traditional Samurai in...

There are always "nanny horror stories" in the news.  Babysitters who abuse their charges, steal things, etc. and in 1992 movies took it to another level with the story of a nanny our for revenge in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle starring Rebecca De Mornay (Risky Business).  Twenty-five years later we have another tale...

Black Sails Blu-ray Review
Black Sails: The Complete Fourth Season   Black Sails Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  08/28/2017 3:28 PM EDT
Geoffrey Chaucer is attributed with coining the phrase "All good things must come to an end" and with Black Sails, that is sadly true. Starz aired its fourth and final season- of this epic story this past season and The Complete Fourth Season is available on Blu-ray for purchase.Much aligned with Starz' penchant for airing wonderfully enj...

The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
The Walking Dead: The Complete Seventh Season   The Walking Dead Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  08/28/2017 10:08 AM EDT
George A. Romero was not only the creator of the Zombie Horror genre, he was the inspiration for Kirkman's The Walking Dead series. To ignore George's impact on the horror genre at large, as well as the Zombie sub-genre, is doing him a great disservice. He may not have been a fan of this series and he even said The Walking Dead was "a soap ope... Read More
