Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review
Beauty and the Beast: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Review   Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett)  9/23/2016 1:53 PM EDT
It's hard to believe it's been twenty-five years since Beauty and the Beast came to theaters.  With its romantic story and beautiful music, it is what we think of as "Classic Disney" and even these many years later, it still holds up.  It's no wonder there is a live action version set for next year. But, until then, ... Read More

Aliens Blu-ray 30th Anniversary Edition features outer space and Sigourney Weaver and makes for one of the best sci-fi movies ever.  Can you believe it's been 30 years since Sigourney Weaver graced the movie theaters as Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of her ship after the catastrophic encounter with the Alien?  Who else can...

The Civil War was a time of turmoil and strife in this country, especially for the southern states.  The Confederate Army was full of farmers who were not quite sure why they were fighting and while they were away their farms were being ransacked by the very people they were working for. Adding to that, rich slave owners were becoming exempt f... Read More

Being released this week on Blu-ray & Digital DVD from Lionsgate Premier films is Marauders, an action film starring Law & Order's Christopher Meloni and Bruce Willis. Now, many may not have heard of it, mainly because it's a straight to Blu-ray release, which would seem odd considering the cast. I mean come on! You have Christopher Meloni ... Read More

Let me preface this with a note to all who are reading this: I am not a fan of the Horror Movie Genre. The idea of getting scared in a theater because of a made up ghost or "presence" is ridiculous! I also find it amazing that people shell out $12/$15 to have a cat or something jump into the screen, so they can scream like a teenage girl ... Read More

(Allison Hazlett)  9/12/2016 4:55 PM EDT
Pop music is a staple on the radio and won't be going anywhere anytime soon.  It's also ripe for jokes and ridicule. The outrageous things popstars do just to get attention can be mind blowing sometimes.  I can't think of anyone better to parody this genre than Saturday Night Live Alumni Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).Conne...

Everyone loves to see the good guys beat the bad guys but watching it happen in the first fifteen minutes of a movie is exceptional.  Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, the third in a trilogy starring Chris Evans as the World War II-made hero, Captain America, shows that three is a charm.  Bringing all the Avengers characters togeth...

It was called the "Trial of the Century" and it had the American public captivated for almost 10 months.  Orenthal James (O.J.) Simpson (Cuba Gooding, Jr.; Selma) was arrested and formally charged with the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and restaurant worker Ronald Goldman.  Captured in a 10-hour limi...

Zoom! Went The Strings Of My Heart.This week out on Blu-ray and DVD is Season Two of the Warner Bros. Television & CW's hit series The Flash, and all I can say is, love is in the air! It seems as if while Season One revolved more around Barry Allen and his family issues, along with his unrequited love for Iris West, this season involves a b... Read More
