The original Taken film released in 2008 was a sleeper hit for 20th Century Fox and Europa Corp. It followed the story of Ex-covert operative, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson; Non-Stop, Unknown), trying to recover his daughter who had been kidnapped while in Paris. The film primarily worked because of the audience familiarity of a father trying to pr... Read More

Lets get this out the way first Dumb and Dumber To is …well….dumb, I mean REALLY dumb. However, if you are familiar with the original Farrelly Brothers film, Dumb and Dumber (1994), you would except this. The story is pretty simplistic. After twenty years of Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey; Ace Ventura, The Mask) pretending to be cat... Read More

Archer Blu-ray Review
Archer: The Complete Season Five   Archer Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  01/27/2015 8:23 AM EST
A couple of years ago 20th Century Fox launched a new satirical spy drama on their FX channel called Archer. The show caught on due to its tongue-in-cheek off-the-wall humor, it's distinctive style of animation, and the fact that adult audiences found the show good enough to wind down to after a days work.  For four seasons Archer pre...

With the plethora of young adult science fiction novels being snatched up by every studio in creation and turned into films, it is hard to disseminate the few good ones from the many bad ones. This holiday season 20th Century Fox introduces film lovers to another one of these films, The Maze Runner, based on the novel by James Dashner, on iTunes Di... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  11/25/2014 10:45 PM EST
In 2011 New Line Cinema's unleashed a movie that most of Middle America could relate to entitled Horrible Bosses. The movie had a simple premise. What if your boss was so "horrible" and destroying your life so much that the only out you had was to kill him? This fantasy was so common for most of working America that the act of living vica...

I don't like Melissa McCarthy. I personally never found her funny. Her latest attempt at humor, Tammy, did not change my mind at all. In fact it only solidified the idea that I will go out of my way not to watch her films. Picture if you will a remake of Thelma and Louise, without Gina Davis, dumb downed to the lowest level of jokes possible l...

Disney just unleashed another Marvel project on the silver screen without most movie patrons even realizing it. That film is known as Big Hero 6. Yes, that film, the one with the cute Stay Puft Marshmallow Man figure known as Baymax. Big Hero 6's story centers around a boy genius, Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter), who has been on the wrong ...

How to make a movie 101 – Open up a proverbial can and add a little bit of 2001: A Space Odyssey, a star studded cast, a bit of family conflict, a three hour runtime, and a horrible twist, and you have Interstellar. Interstellar, the latest big budget, big concept film from Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight), written by ...
