Family – to each of us the word means something different.  It could be your immediate family; siblings and parents; or it could be your extended family; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.  For some, it includes people you are not blood-related to – friends.  However you define the word, it is still a group of people o...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  7/11/2019 12:10 PM EDT
It was 25 years ago that Disney brought us their animated version of the classic Shakespearean play, Hamlet. The Lion King offered wonderful animation, an original soundtrack created by Tim Rice and Elton John and a somewhat humorous look at the animal kingdom.  For ninety minutes, it entertained audiences and eventually grossed almost a billi...

Imagine all the people… had no idea who The Beatles – John, Paul, George, and Ringo- were. What if they never existed? Imagine if you were the only person on Earth who remembered them and their incredible catalog of music.   What if you could publish Hey, Jude, Yesterday, Penny Lane, etc. under your own name?  You would certa...

There are numerous late night talks shows out there and each one vies for viewers in the "ratings" wars.  We see an engaging and enthusiastic host talking to the audience, home viewers and guests all in an effort to try to win our loyalty.  However, we usually don't know what goes on behind the scenes and how hard a team of writ...

So many young people have dreams and aspirations of becoming stars.  Some of them hope to be actors, some rappers and some country music singers.  Rose-Lynn (Jessie Buckley; Beast) is one of the latter.  She is an anomaly living in her small town in Scotland dreaming of moving to Nashville to make it big.  Her chances are probab...

"You've got a friend in me"… since 1995 those words have been synonymous with the Disney animated movie Toy Story and Woody (Tom Hanks; Cast Away) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen; Home Improvement).  Over the next fifteen years, we were treated to two more films in the franchise that followed the adventures of Andy's toys as the...

The Last Black Man in San Francisco Theatrical Review
The Last Black Man in San Francisco   The Last Black Man in San Francisco Theatrical Review
(Joey R Mannon)  6/14/2019 11:30 AM EDT
If The Last Black Man in San Fransisco is any indication of the potential inherent in newcomers Joe Talbot (Director) and Jimmie Fails (Protagonist), then there is certainly much to anticipate down the road from these two. The film is so endearing, the story so engaging and the acting so skillful that it could present as a tough act to follow. ... Read More

Shaft Theatrical Review
Shaft   Shaft Theatrical Review
(Joey R Mannon)  6/13/2019 11:50 AM EDT
A son-meets-father story producing a laugh-a-minute, Shaft delivers exactly what audiences come to see. The plot is simple, the premise is familiar, and the laughs from predictable yet impeccably-timed tag lines are abundant. This latest edition of the Shaft franchise, nineteen years after the previous release, finds the "black James Bond"... Read More

Do you believe aliens live amongst us here on earth,…hiding in plain sight?  Are you one of those individuals who is fascinated by conspiracy theories? Do you think our government is hiding secret agencies who go around "erasing" the evidence of aliens?  Well, then you know the premise of the MIB movie franchise that bega... Read More

Dark Phoenix Theatrical Review
Dark Phoenix   Dark Phoenix Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  6/6/2019 10:17 AM EDT
It's the end of an era.  As Twentieth Century Fox closes out its final slate, they also close out one of their very successful franchises with this week's Dark Phoenix. Nineteen years ago in July 2000 X-Men came to movie theaters bringing yet another set of comic books to life on the big screen.  Nine movies later (not including the two D... Read More
