The Sessions Theatrical Review

Based on a true story The Sessions will open your eyes, titillate and warm your heart.  The strange account features excellent convincing acting on the part of John Hawkes and Helen Hunt earning them what I feel will be an Oscar Nomination.  If you want to see something completely different, poignant and unusual presented in a very creati...

Lincoln Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  11/15/2012 1:54 PM EST
The biopic film Lincoln provides a look at how politics changed the United States in the final months of the 16th President's life.  It's a dark boding story that takes you into the heart of a historical political debate, a congress divided and a family being pulled apart. If you like films with educational substance, excellent acting and dark... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  11/15/2012 10:36 AM EST
Let's just say this up front: Wrong Turn 5 is certainly the worst entry in what's arguably the worst horror franchise of the past decade. If you value your time and money, you shouldn't even finish reading to the bottom of this paragraph. Forget that Wrong Turn 5 exists. Spend your hard-earned, entertainment-earmarked cash elsewhere. Bu... Read More

(Sean Ferguson)  11/14/2012 11:20 AM EST
For the first time on Blu-ray released by Disney, is Brian Henson's version of the classic Charles Dickens story, "A Christmas Carol. While many versions of this classic have come before and I'm sure will follow, this one is quite different because it is translated through the spirit of Jim Henson's Muppets.  The story of "A ...

(Roger Longenbach)  11/14/2012 10:46 AM EST
Now out on Blu-Ray 3D Combo Pack is Brave, Pixar's latest feature film.  Brave is hands-down the most visually stunning animation that Pixar has ever produced.  Unfortunately, the story isn't one of their strongest, and prevents it from being a masterpiece.  The issue is that basically the story is mash up of other Disney stories:&nb...

Vamps Blu-ray Review

(John Delia)  11/12/2012 10:03 AM EST
Vampire movies are certainly making their way into the crowded horror market and a little comedy called Vamps has been released on Blu-ray just in time for the holidays.  Not your average repulsive bloodletting fantasy flick, this film tries to entertain making the hideous a laughing matter.  While the premise does warrant a chick flick a...

(Paul Kates)  11/07/2012 11:03 AM EST
For the past fifty years, one name has been synonymous with the action movie: James Bond. Fifty years in one profession, spanning 22 feature films, and you would expect the British secret agent with a licence to kill would be worthy of retirement and a decent pension, and that may have been the case when news broke in 2010 of financial troubles at ...

Filled with action and comedy the animated film grabs you from the start and involves you in a tale of wonderment and hope.  From sassy to sinister, clumsy to crusher ... Read More

(John Delia)  10/31/2012 9:06 AM EST
Set in the 1800s this action thriller has an odd title, one that turns history on its ear.  Called Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter, the film exaggerates the famous US President's penchant for destroying evil.  More of a horror flick than a history lesson I found the tall tale very entertaining with some excellent CGI to ramp it up. The fil... Read More
