The Visit Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/10/2015 11:28 AM EST
Like some of M. Night Shyamalan's other movies, The Visit ends with a twist you didn't see coming.  I expected the typical poltergeist infestation or supernatural explanation for the characters' behavior, but what I ultimately got was much darker and more realistic.  It almost makes you wonder what sort of demonic dialogue goes on inside ...

The Vampire Diaries Blu-ray Review
The Vampire Diaries Season 6   The Vampire Diaries Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/03/2015 1:58 PM EST
The Vampire Diaries Season 6 maybe the saddest and bloodiest one so far.  From other worldly prisons, to a new witch/vampire hybrid, the supernatural dimension went into overdrive this year.  Fans said goodbye to four main characters and several new ones that didn't make it through the season.  And, we've met Salvatore's relative...

Mad Max: Fury Road Blu-ray Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/31/2015 4:16 PM EST
When Mad Max: Fury Road came out in theaters this past summer, it got rave reviews from critics and audiences.  It also became a social commentary for a pro women agenda.  It led to numerous discussions, which I'm sure almost any major film wants.  I'm just not sure it deserved some of the hype it received.  As it makes its way ...

Zac Efron (Neighbors) seems to gravitate towards movies that incorporate music.  From singing and dancing in his earlier roles, to his latest film We Are Your Friends, Efron has a connection that will most likely follow him and pop up from time to time throughout his career.  As Cole Carter, a DJ trying to make it in the LA scen...

After an extremely stale box office last week, with no films entering the market to overthrow Straight Out of Compton from the number one spot, now comes box office hopeful, No Escape. With it's real-to-life thrills and action that will have audiences holding tightly to their seats as they are taken on a wild and intense ride thr...

American Ultra Theatrical Review
American Ultra   American Ultra Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/20/2015 4:35 PM EST
Take Clerks, Mission: Impossible, and Point of No Return and mix them all together in a bowl.  Dump the mix into rolling papers and you've made yourself a movie called American Ultra.  Coming to theaters August 21, 2015, it is a mish-mosh of other good films trying to be played off as an original idea, but not succeedi...

(Nathan M Rose)  08/20/2015 4:08 PM EST
Creating a film based on a video game property is a tough sell to audiences. In fact, there have been very few films that financially have accomplished this. Now, this August, 20th Century Fox tries yet again to translate the video game franchise Hitman to the silver screen with Hitman: Agent 47.If you aren't familiar with the Hitman property or Ag...

2 Broke Girls DVD Review
2 Broke Girls: The Complete Fourth Season   2 Broke Girls DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/14/2015 10:01 AM EST
2 Broke Girls: The Complete Fourth Season is out now on DVD.  Why should you spend your well-earned dollars buying it?  Simply put, it's fun, albeit sophomoric, humor.  Plus, it's always nice to see people with less money than you have.For those who have never seen the show, it centers on Max Black (Kat Dennings, Th...
