While anyone who is a huge fan of the Marvel franchise would want to own Avengers: Age of Ultron, I'm not sure "regular folks" would be as interested.  The sequel to the 2012 blockbuster certainly made a great deal of money (just like its predecessor), but lacked the meatier storyline.  Coming to Blu-Ray and Digital HD the begin...

The original Taken film released in 2008 was a sleeper hit for 20th Century Fox and Europa Corp.

We all know the story of Moses. Born a slave, grew up in the home of the Egyptian Pharaoh and eventually led the Jewish people out of slavery.   If you are over the age of thirty you can remember watching Charlton Heston (Ben-Hur) playing the role in The Ten Commandments.  Now Director Ridley Scott (Prometheus, Alien) has created his...

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.

In today's world of animated movies, How to Train Your Dragon 2 is an anomaly.  There are no princesses or catchy tunes to sign along to and the plot actually makes some sense.  And while there is still an element of fantasy, it doesn't overwhelm the story. When we return to Berk for this latest installment, there is peace and harmon...
