(Sean Ferguson)  06/25/2015 8:52 AM EDT
When it comes to sequels, not many come up or surpass its original.In fact I'm willing to bet the mad scientist behind Ted 2 could name them in a second. Out this week in theaters, is quite possibly the funniest film of the year.  To be perfectly Frank, if I do say so myself, it's the funniest film I've seen in a long time!

The voices in your head are real!  They are cute, colorful, and wreak havoc with your emotions. At least that is what Disney and Pixar would like you to believe.Riley is an 11 year old girl who, for the most part, has had a pretty happy life so far.  She is a silly, sweet, honest kid with loving parents and good friends.  All of this...

Jurassic World Theatrical Review
Jurassic World   Jurassic World Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  06/11/2015 11:58 AM EDT
Back in 1993, the way films were made, and viewed, changed forever with Jurassic Park, a Stephen Spielberg (Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) film based on a book by Michael Crichton (Disclosure,Congo). The film blended the use of animatronics, CGI, and an engaging story, with characters you cared about, to become an international success.The succe... Read More

McFarland, USA Blu-ray Review
McFarland, USA   McFarland, USA Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  06/10/2015 12:38 PM EDT
If you've seen Lean On Me or Stand And Deliver, you've pretty much seen McFarland USA.  Impoverished students succeeding against the odds; encouraged by their teacher to achieve greatness despite their surroundings.  The difference here is merely the location – instead of inner-city ghettos,  McFarland,...

Every high school movie has the usual cast of characters and The DUFF is no different.  There is Madison (Bella Thorne; Shake It Up, Blended) – the popular, beautiful, mean Homecoming queen, Wesley (Rob Amell; True Jackson VP) – the star quarterback that is friends with everyone but not especially bright, and Bianca (Mae Whitman; P...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  06/04/2015 11:48 AM EDT
Melissa McCarthy's (Heat, Identity thief) movies are hit and miss.  Bridesmaids was hilariously funny but Tammy was just awful.  Luckily, her latest comedy, Spy, falls into the former category with 2 hours of nonstop humor that will have you laughing out loud.McCarthy plays CIA agent Susan Cooper, who does nothing more than sit behind a c...

Focus Blu-ray Review
Focus   Focus Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/28/2015 11:52 AM EDT
I get why they named the movie Focus.  As Will Smith's (Men in Black, Ali) character, Nicky, explains the trick to being a good con artist is to shift the victim's focus away from what you are really trying to do.   Unfortunately, I felt neither the need nor inclination to actually focus on watching this movie.  Coming to Blu-ra...
