When Disney released Big Hero 6 in 2014, they only slightly altered their successful animated movie formula.  Yes, it is funny.  Yes, there is a cute non-human friend guaranteed to offer mass merchandising appeal.  Yes, there is a terrible villain who must be stopped.   The only thing missing was the beautiful princess and ...

(Nathan M Rose)  02/19/2015 10:25 PM EST
Lets get this out the way first Dumb and Dumber To is …well….dumb, I mean REALLY dumb. However, if you are familiar with the original Farrelly Brothers film, Dumb and Dumber (1994), you would except this. The story is pretty simplistic. After twenty years of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey; Ace Ventura, The Mask) pretending to be cat... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  02/13/2015 2:07 PM EST
Ok I admit it…I read the books. Well, I haven't finished the third one yet but I figure I still have time before they make it into a movie.   Of course I'm speaking of the fan fiction turned novel turn major motion picture juggernaut that is Fifty Shade of Grey.  From the moment the film adaptation was announced t...

It's true what they say - you can't choose your family.  And when that family is Greek and numerous, family get togethers are bound to be loud, and full of tension.  The Slap, the new mini-series on NBC is situated around one such family and the scenario that leads to their breakdown.  The first episode which airs on Feb...

We've all had one of those "Murphy's law" kind of days – anything that can go wrong, will.   For Alexander Cooper it seems every day is like that and the day before his 12th birthday is no exception.  He wakes up to find everyone in his grade has been invited to the cool kid's party the same day as his, th...

Glee DVD Review
Glee: The Complete Fifth Season   Glee DVD Review
(Sean Ferguson)  02/12/2015 1:04 PM EST
So I guess I have to start by coming clean. Hi My name is Sean Ferguson and I'm a Glee fan. It's sad and true and no matter how far this series goes off base I continue to watch. It may be because I'm a huge music buff….or maybe it's because when I was in school I was picked on too (though no slushies were ever thrown my way)... Read More

Who doesn't love a good spy movie?  Action, adventure, intrigue and great gadgets all blending together to create an enjoyable movie experience.  Throw in a strong, seasoned group of actors and you have the makings of a great film.   Twentieth Century Fox had attempted to tackle this genre with Kingsman: The Secret Service being...

The Best of Me Blu-ray Review
The Best of Me   The Best of Me Blu-ray Review
(Michelle Koesten)  02/09/2015 12:02 PM EST
Based on a Nicolas Sparks novel, The Best Of Me is out on Blu-ray and DVD.   Having not read any of his books, and only having seen a few of his movies, I didn't know what to expect.  A friend did say she threw the book across the room at the end, so I was a little concerned about the ending. While I am a fan of two of its s...
