Winter is coming" is the catch phrase of the highly popular HBO series Game of Thrones.  Many people question if the $10 million dollars or more per episode HBO spent on Game of Thones Season 6 was worth the money.  For ten episodes, that's more than $100 million dollars for the season.   The money spent ...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector's Edition   Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/13/2016 6:21 PM EST
Ever since the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film was announced, the anticipation was palpable.  When the movie finally came out last December, the frenzy surrounding it was incredible and, even though some of the plot was recycled, it managed to deliver.  Much to audiences' delight, it fed their sense of nostalgia and refueled their l...

Arrival Theatrical Review
Arrival   Arrival Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/10/2016 11:45 AM EST
Your average alien movie is usually an action packed, blow ‘em up, sci-fi thriller.  Spaceships show up and kill millions of people, forcing humanity to work together to save the human race. Rarely does Hollywood divert from this formula because these movies often become blockbusters. However, Arrival is not your average alien movie.Dr. ... Read More

The Marvel universe seems to be never ending.  With a plethora of comic book heroes and villains to draw from, they manage to crank out a movie every three to six months it seems.  Each time the hype and excitement around the movie is immense, whether or not it is warranted.  This month's hero of choice is Doctor Strange (Benedict Cu...

Ballers Digital HD Review
The Complete Second Season   Ballers Digital HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/01/2016 10:26 AM EST
When Ballers first appeared on HBO in 2015, it was pretty close to what I was expecting.  Football, loose women, money, and fast cars permeated every episode (well, I hope the football part would since the show is called Ballers).  However, it also included a plot worthy of taking notice.  Season One was a solid effort and kept audie...

Bad Moms Blu-ray Review
Bad Moms   Bad Moms Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/31/2016 7:57 PM EST
When Bridesmaids hit theaters in 2011 it created a whole new level of female comedies.  It was racier and raunchier and had audiences laughing hysterically.  It opened the door to more crass and vulgar movies starring female leads in order to give male actors a run for their money.  This summer, Bad Moms riva...
