Tammy Blu-ray Review
Tammy   Tammy Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  11/10/2014 9:59 PM EDT
I don't like Melissa McCarthy. I personally never found her funny. Her latest attempt at humor, Tammy, did not change my mind at all. In fact it only solidified the idea that I will go out of my way not to watch her films. Picture if you will a remake of Thelma and Louise, without Gina Davis, dumb downed to the lowest level of jokes possible l...

Jersey Boys Blu-ray Review
Jersey Boys   Jersey Boys Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/10/2014 11:16 AM EDT
It's always a little tricky when a hit Broadway Musical is adapted for the big screen.  Devoted fans of the show often scrutinize every detail and compare the movie to the stage productions.  In the case of Jersey Boys, I don't think the fans will be disappointed.  Coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 11, 2014, it packs all the exci...

Disney just unleashed another Marvel project on the silver screen without most movie patrons even realizing it. That film is known as Big Hero 6. Yes, that film, the one with the cute Stay Puft Marshmallow Man figure known as Baymax. Big Hero 6's story centers around a boy genius, Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter), who has been on the wrong ...

How to make a movie 101 – Open up a proverbial can and add a little bit of 2001: A Space Odyssey, a star studded cast, a bit of family conflict, a three hour runtime, and a horrible twist, and you have Interstellar. Interstellar, the latest big budget, big concept film from Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight), written by ...

How far can Disney stretch an animated franchise?  Pretty far, it seems.  As with most of their cartoon features,  there is usually a sequel to a successful movie.  First there was Planes and now Planes: Fire and Rescue.  The second movie will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on November 4, 2014. In this installment we ...

The second movie in the Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug sees our trusted band of adventurers, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman; Love Actually), Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen; Xmen: Days of Future Past) and Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage; Captain America: The First Avenger) heading to the Lonely Mountain with the dream of reclaimi...

Everyone knows the story of Sleeping Beauty.  Or do they…?  As with the Broadway Musical Wicked bringing a new perspective to The Wizard of OZ, we see a different telling of sleeping beauty in Disney's Maleficent.  Coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 4, 2014, this live action version of the classic cartoon is darker and more...

With most films coming out before this Friday since most of America will be out celebrating Halloween, Before I Go To Sleep takes the opportunity to come out in "not so crowded" weekend. Before I Go To Sleep is a British-American thriller film adapted from a novel of the same name by S. J. Watson, written and directed by Rowan Joff&e... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/28/2014 12:12 PM EDT
In today's world of animated movies, How to Train Your Dragon 2 is an anomaly.  There are no princesses or catchy tunes to sign along to and the plot actually makes some sense.  And while there is still an element of fantasy, it doesn't overwhelm the story. When we return to Berk for this latest installment, there is peace and harmon...

Let's face it.  Create anything having to do with Star Wars and you have an instant audience.  It is an iconic franchise spanning generations. Disney XD and Lucas Films LTD obviously know this and are taking full advantage by creating an animated, children's show.  New to television this Fall, it's call Star Wars Rebels.  Set be...
