In today's world of blockbuster car chases and super hero films, Ira Sachs' (Love is Strange) Little Men is an interesting change.  Delving into the ideas of childhood friendship and adulthood fights, it is a juxtaposition of innocence and lost ideals and dreams.   It reminds you of what was once good and pure and how it all changes....

(Jennifer Broderick)  08/22/2016 10:45 AM EST
The Huntsman: Winter's War began with controversy before filming even started.   A change in stars, a change in directors, and no one knew what the movie would end up like considering one of the main characters, Snow White, was no longer a real part of the film.   Wondering how the story line would reconcile itself starting out before...

FORGET BATMAN VS SUPERMAN!The Real DC Competition would be the battle of Gotham VS National City!  If you're looking for more than just CGI effects in a 2 hour, depressing, "my mother's name is Martha too let's be friends" fest… then you need to be watching DC on TV, because the television DC Universe is HANDS DOWN beating the...

A quick recap for the rock valley dwellers out there...Ben-Hur is a cinematic soap opera spinning betrayal, prejudice and forgiveness; in which a prince, Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), is forced into slavery after his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell) falsely accuses him of treason.  Fans of the "original" Charlton Heston Ben-Hur ...

If you look up the definition of a war dog in the Urban Dictionary, you find, "A political and/or military person who's immorally eager to encourage a people or nation to go to war."  For arms dealers, this is exactly what they are hoping for and when President Bush went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, they couldn't wait to suppl...

Imagine, that one day, your mom tells you that you're not being sent off to summer camp, but instead, being sent in a pod to cross the galaxy to protect your younger cousin. Sounds like the worst babysitting job ever, huh? It gets worse… your pod gets shoved off course by the planets explosion (as it kills your parents and everyone you know)... Read More

Stephen King has been one of our most prolific writers of the last 30 years. He also has a knack for thinking outside the box, making us think in new and interesting ways and scaring the pants off us all at the same time.  His novel 11.22.63 definitely does the first two and a small portion of the third.Since so much of his writing i...

Take some animated supermarket food, throw in some catchy tunes, and stir with a bunch of celebrity voices… what could be bad, right?  Oh my lord!  You are not prepared for what this delicious recipe concocts.  Bawdy, immature, outrageous, over the top, raunchy humor and antics ensue and are sure to offend almost everyone in s...

In 1977, Walt Disney Productions made a live action/animated film called Pete's Dragon.  It was fun and kid friendly, with happy songs and a colorful dragon named Elliot.  While it had some somber moments, the majority of the film was uplifting and inspiring.  Almost 40 years later, Disney has reimagined the classic film in a way...
