Penguins Theatrical Review

Everyone knows about penguins.  Almost all of us have seen them in a zoo, a cartoon, or in a film, but how much do we really know other than the fact that they waddle around and are cute?  What do we really understand about their lives and mating rituals?  Sure we may have seen documentaries about them before but nothing like this on...

Laika Studio was founded in 2005 and for the past ten years they have been thrilling audiences with their stop motion animation feature film.  With their first feature, Coraline, they received an academy award nomination and doubled their sixty million dollar budget. ParaNorman, their second movie, also garnered an Oscar nomination and critica... Read More

In spite of a prolific career making films, many of us will forever behold Emilio Estevez (The Way; Bobby; The Breakfast Club; The Mighty Ducks) holed up in a library as part of a motley crew of (seemingly) mismatched misfits.  Now, some thirty-odd years later, we get to return to the library in a somewhat grown-up version of The Breakfast Clu...

I have always found films about India to be fascinating. Probably because India is a place of mystery, magic, philosophy, and hidden secrets. A place so big and filled with so many people that you get the feeling that anything could happen at any moment; and it did in the most terrifying way in 2008. That's when the members of the "Lashkar-e-T... Read More

In the past five years, The Walt Disney Studio has been reworking their animated classics and turned them into live action features.  While many (myself included) were skeptical at first, Disney has managed to create some wonderful films that the whole family can enjoy, whether seeing it for the first time or reminiscing about the stories...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  3/23/2019 7:47 PM EDT
What if one day you were a fourteen-year-old kid and the next you were a male superhero in his thirties?  How would you handle it?  Would you be freaking out? What if you obtained those powers from an ancient wizard? Imagine you could switch back and forth between adult and teenager by just uttering one simple word – Shazam!  I... Read More

Jordan Peele was always known as part of the comedy duo Key and Peele and was considered to be very funny.  Then in 2017, he made his directorial debut with the critically acclaimed thriller, Get Out for which he won the Oscar for best original screenplay.  It showed us the dark side of his personality and had audiences looking at him in ...

Amination can take on many forms and formats.  They can also tell varying types of stories, from Disney's "happily ever after" tales to darker fare like we saw in this year's Oscar winner, Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.  Then you get animated movies that are more mature in nature such as Anomalisa and the raunchy, R-rated com...

The human race, for the most part, seems to be enamored with the idea of death.  We fixate on what comes next.  Is there an afterlife?  What happens to our soul when our body is gone? Is there such a thing as reincarnation?  Hispanic cultures even honor their dead on El Dia de los  Muertos.  For the filmmaker, Shawn Sn... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  3/6/2019 9:14 AM EDT
Carol Danvers first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1968  as a United States Air Force pilot (rather forward thinking of them, don't you think?).  In 1977 she became Ms.Marvel when an explosion causes her DNA to fuse with Kree Warrior Mar-Vell, giving her superhuman powers. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years,... Read More
