If grey is too gloomy for you, try 50 (or 100) Shades of Blush.  I did! But, before we get to those hot and glistening details...What you need to know about Nicholas Sparks' latest novel turned Hollywood blockbust... er... uh... hopeful...There are some acting gems in this film.  Disclosure: I became a lifelong Alan Alda fan upon meet...

The original Taken film released in 2008 was a sleeper hit for 20th Century Fox and Europa Corp. It followed the story of Ex-covert operative, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson; Non-Stop, Unknown), trying to recover his daughter who had been kidnapped while in Paris. The film primarily worked because of the audience familiarity of a father trying to pr... Read More

Who knew the woods could be so magical? Apparently director Rob Marshall (Chicago) did when he made the renowned Broadway musical, Into the Woods, come to life. With the world famous cast, he takes you on a journey, which blows you away. There is definitely magic in these woods.The collaborative effort of the cast makes watching the extras worthwhi...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/03/2015 9:03 AM EDT
Furious 7 is everything you would expect from the Fast and Furious franchise and so much more.  Once again "the family" needs to pull together to fight against others who want to harm them.  Interestingly, this time there are two menaces instead of one and a "world domination" pseudo plot is woven into the mix. In...

The Boov are coming, The Boov are coming!!!  What exactly are "Boov", you ask?  They are the cute, colorful alien creatures at the center of Dreamworks' new theatrical release Home.   Out in theaters on March 27, 2015, this animated film is an hour and a half of typical family entertainment. The Boov are a society...

After three movies of playing bit characters in the background, the Penguins of Madagascar finally have gotten their starring roles.  The black and white flightless birds, that have always had about ten minutes of screen time, are now the main players of the hour and a half long The Penguins of Madagascar.  With their crazy strategic...

Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
Sons of Anarchy: Season Seven   Sons of Anarchy Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  03/15/2015 12:01 AM EDT
Sons of Anarchy, one of the most successful cable TV series ever, gave its viewers a good send off.  Unlike other series finales, it doesn't leave anything up in the air but wraps things up tightly.After viewers were left reeling from the chaos of season 6, Season 7 welcomes back the gang to try and deal with everything and put things back...

Cinderella…We have all seen it in some form or another.  The story has been told time and again. Of course, arguably the best version is the Disney animated classic.  Now Disney is trying to outdo itself with a live action movie out in theaters today.This latest attempt is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor) and stars Lily James (Do...

We all know the story of Moses. Born a slave, grew up in the home of the Egyptian Pharaoh and eventually led the Jewish people out of slavery.   If you are over the age of thirty you can remember watching Charlton Heston (Ben-Hur) playing the role in The Ten Commandments.  Now Director Ridley Scott (Prometheus, Alien) has created his...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/24/2015 8:27 AM EDT
Recently I watched two sequels on Blu-ray - Dumb and Dumber To and Horrible Bosses 2. The latter was the better of the two films, but that isn't saying much.  The aptly named Horrible Bosses 2 IS horrible and boring to boot. Once again Nick (Jason Bateman; Arrested Development), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis; We're The Millers) and Dale (Char...
