The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
The Glass Castle   The Glass Castle Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/06/2017 10:46 AM EDT
So many times in Hollywood films the alcoholism of one of the characters becomes the main focus of the film.  We see the individual falling down, slurring their words, making horrible life choices, being abusive and destroying, at best, their own lives and at worst the lives of those around them. While The Glass Castle addresses the ... Read More

Thor: Ragnarok Theatrical Review
Thor: Ragnarok   Thor: Ragnarok Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  11/02/2017 8:29 AM EDT
Where to begin?!? Where to begin!  I suppose with ALERT: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!  Now then… While a fan of Marvel, its Cinematic Universe, and Thor in all film appearances (& beyond, er, before…), the Thor films have not been among my favorites.  That is until now.  Directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the ...

A Bad Moms Christmas Theatrical Review
A Bad Moms Christmas   A Bad Moms Christmas Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/01/2017 9:03 AM EDT
Last year, Mila Kunis (That 70's Show), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), and Kathryn Hahn (Transparent) made moms everywhere feel a little better about themselves and had us all laughing in the theater at Bad Moms. As Amy, Kiki and Carla respectively, they gave us moms permission to be less than perfect.  Now that we are about to hit holiday... Read More

Annabelle: Creation Blu-ray Review
Annabelle: Creation   Annabelle: Creation Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  10/26/2017 9:14 AM EDT
A common phobia seems to be the fear of dolls, particularly old, porcelain dolls. When you have that fear and couple it with the doll actually being possessed, it's the stuff nightmares are made of.  Creepy looking faces that talk would probably make anyone run away screaming but Annabelle definitely evokes that reaction.In the latest...

War for the Planet of the Apes   War for the Planet of the Apes 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/24/2017 10:06 AM EDT
In 2011, The Planet of the Apes saga found itself getting a reboot from the 1970's version of the story.  In this reimagined world, we see how the apes became more intelligent as the movie focused on one specific ape named Caesar (Andy Serkis; The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).  Caesar was born in a science lab where the ...

Warrior 4K Ultra HD Review
Warrior   Warrior 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/23/2017 5:08 PM EDT
Over the years there have been numerous films that include the sport of boxing as a backdrop and even a few that include wrestling but until 2011's Warrior there has never been a movie that showcases the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting.  Just like Rocky or Million Dollar Baby, the action itself isn't th...

The Birds Blu-ray Review
Alfred Hitchcock: The Ultimate Collection   The Birds Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/20/2017 4:01 PM EDT
Alfred Hitchcock is arguably one of the best directors of all time.  Known as the "Master of Suspense" he helped to innovate psychological thriller films and influence many of the directors working today.  His "personal view" approach to camera work has been copied countless times over as it seems to create a more inti...

Only The Brave Theatrical Review
Only The Brave   Only The Brave Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/19/2017 11:44 AM EDT
There are people who selflessly put their lives on the line for others all the time and our civil service workers can be counted among this group.  Police officers and firefighters put themselves in harms way without much thought to the danger that could befall them.  They are unsung heroes who don't get as much credit as they deserve.&nb...

In 2009, the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women opened its doors with 120 students.  A middle and high school charter school in inner-city Baltimore, it graduated its first class in 2016 with 60 young ladies (100 percent of the senior class) attending college.  The all-girls school also boasts a winning step team and in the 2015-...
