Director Luc Besson (Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element) is known for making movies that combined drama with some action sequences.  He also tends to highlight strong female characters, whether it is a young girl following a hitman or a woman who is running out of time.  His latest effort, Anna, once again encompasses these element...

Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
Downton Abbey   Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/19/2019 5:11 PM EDT
"Downton Abbey" is sumptuous and stylish in a way the touches your heart and moves your soul. It's rather like a cherished overcoat you snuggle into in winter that's at once familiar, comfortable and warm. Of all the British period pieces about upper class families living in the 1920's that I've seen over the years, this one is by far the... Read More

Ad Astra Theatrical Review
Ad Astra   Ad Astra Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/17/2019 11:19 AM EDT
Before you ask and to clear up one piece of confusion about this film, the title "Ad Astra" is Latin for "To The Stars", which this movie is somewhat all about. I say somewhat because the story borrows liberally from Joseph Conrad's ‘Heart Of Darkness" in the same way ‘Apocalypse Now' utilized the journey and th... Read More

Back in 2000, the grandfather of all modern-day Superhero films, X-Men, hit the silver screen. It spawned a franchise that saw two sequels, and then a reboot with X-Men: First Class. Now, four films into the reboot, we are seeing the final entry in the 20th Century Fox X-Men series, Dark Phoenix, which is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital... Read More

The moment Jennifer Lopez steps on to the stage dressed in dental floss, and smiles and begins her Pole Dancing routine as the patrons of "Move Gentleman's Club" throw hundreds of dollars at her, you know this is going to be the role she'll be remembered for. Not since she and George Clooney tussled in the trunk of a car in "Out... Read More

The Goldfinch is a 1654 painting by Carel Fabritius, which depicts the little bird chained to its feeder that is mounted on a wall.  In 2013 author Donna Tartt used the painting as one of the central characters in her novel, The Goldfinch.  The book went on to win the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and this week Amazon Studios brings the...

High School… some of the best and worst years of a young person's life has been the backdrop for so many movies throughout history.  Time and time again we see the stereotypical characters – the jocks, the popular girls, the nerds, the druggies, etc. all exploring and experimenting as they learn valuable life lessons and gain pers...

(Maureen Buccellato)  9/10/2019 9:11 AM EDT
In 2014, we were introduced to John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves (The Matrix). Originally, Wick was a former hitman trying to live a more normal life but after his wife died and her last gift to him, a dog, was killed by some Russian mobsters, all bets were off. Wick returns to the life he knows best - the life he excels at to get revenge. The film... Read More
