Slavery in this country has been the fodder of major motion pictures since the epic drama Roots aired on television in the 1970's.  The injustice befallen on African Americans has fascinated and horrified us and has been depicted in graphic detail on occasion.  While the stories have been told time and time again, it seems we ca...

Spy movies are generally very popular and well received in this country, especially when there is a team of spies.  Some are serious films, while others are meant to be comedies or parodies.  In 2005, we got spies in suburbia (and real life drama) with Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  This year, we once again see espionage come to the world of s...

Sherlock is an U.K. production starting Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange) and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) as Sherlock Holmes and his companion, Dr. John H. Watson.  Quite possibility being the last series (we hope not) in this show, due to the actors very busy outside schedule, Series 4 brings more emotion, more mystery closer to home than ev...

When Universal Studios wants to pick a book to develop into one of the best thriller-mystery movies of the year, they go to Paula Hawkins and create a screenplay and movie of the same name as the book and present it to the audience with twists and turns at every moment of the film. The Girl On The Train is an unpredictable story that will keep... Read More

Step back into time to a prolific era when men returned from The Great War and lost themselves, where life was easy, alcohol was for the back rooms, speakeasies were the thing to do, and the Irish and Italian Mobs ran the country. Live By Night transports you back into a time that has gone by the wayside- a glorious, relaxing time full of...

Why are we so fascinated by vampires and werewolves?  Movies and television shows about them are incredibly popular regardless if they are good or not.  The Underworld franchise incorporates both of these supernatural characters in a battle for ultimate domination and for 2017 a brand new film continues the war.  Underworld...

In the early 1900's, the aristocracy of this country were ashamed of their physically and mentally ill children.  They created secret rooms in their homes to hide away their less than perfect offspring, never allowing them to see the outside nor interact with other people.  These rooms were called the disappointments room and they we...

(Jennifer Broderick)  01/05/2017 5:06 PM EDT
The purpose of a movie is to tell a story and to entertain the audience.  A Monster Calls is the epitome of a story with a deep meaning, one with a lesson, or two, and one with such emotion that there isn't a dry eye left in the theater or a sound emitting from the audience by the time the credits roll.Conor McGuire (Lewis MacDou...
