The last day of school is a happy occasion for every student and teacher but especially gratifying for high school seniors finishing their formal education for good (unless of course, they plan to go to college). At Roosevelt High School, that means tons of senior pranks and teacher frustration. This year it also means teacher reviews and terminati... Read More

Seventeen years ago, Hugh Jackman (The Prestige) commanded the screen as the brooding, mutant Wolverine in the movie X-Men. We've seen his story evolve, as he becomes a reluctant hero while battling the demons of his past. He resists Charles Xavier's (Patrick Stewart; Star Trek: The Next Generation) assistance, yet aids the group in battlin... Read More

Girls: The Complete Sixth Season   Girls Digital HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/22/2017 4:36 PM EST
The last few seasons of HBO's hit show Girls, while still being well written and acted, has made one wonder if it is just time to pack up and go.  How long can we play out the "single, not sure I want to grow up or even how to" drama? Well, we have our answer…Six Seasons.  HBO ended the series this April on a high no... Read More

Usually when you think of a western movie you think of horses, gunslingers, saloons, and cowboys.  1992's Academy Award winner for best picture, Unforgiven, has all that and more.   With Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) at the helm, both directing and starring in it, the movie opened to well deserved critical praise and became an aud...

Resident Evil is the longest running female action series in movie history.  Based on a video game, the first film made it's way to theaters in 2002 and fifteen years later we have movie number six, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, hitting stores on 4K, Blu-ray and Digital Download. With crazier stunts, fans of the series will n... Read More

Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
The Complete Fourth Season   Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/09/2017 9:56 AM EST
In the past, there have been television shows about life in prison.  That is nothing original.  However, most of them focus on men in prison so when Orange is the New Black, which views life in a women's correctional facility, debuted on Netflix on July 11, 2013, it was somewhat groundbreaking.  Not only was it differen...

Divorce Blu-ray Review
The Complete First Season   Divorce Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/08/2017 4:22 PM EST
HBO has more original programming than ever before and the majority of it is top notch, award winning fare.  This year, they added another show to their line up and it seems to want to continue the tradition of excellence they have put forth.  Divorce debuted on October 9, 2016, and by November it had been renewed for a second season. &nb...

In 2014, Marvel Studios released one of their lesser known movies, Guardians of the Galaxy.  Expecting the film to be modestly successful, I'm sure they were shocked when it became a huge summer blockbuster.  With cute characters, funny moments, a kick butt soundtrack and some great special effects, it quickly became an audience ...

In 1995, Bre-X, a Canadian mining company announced to the world they had found significant gold deposits in Busang, Indonesia.  Overnight, they became a huge success and their penny stock suddenly was worth significantly more money per share.  However, by 1997, everything fell apart when independent consultants couldn't replicate the...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  05/02/2017 10:58 AM EST
Everyone knows that even before A Dog's Purpose opened in theaters this past January it was embroiled in a scandal.  A video surfaced of what looked like a trainer forcing a terrified dog into a pool of rushing water and animal cruelty allegations were tossed around.  What started out as PR for a movie full of cute dogs ended up...
