From his breakthrough role in The Black Adder to the incomparable Mr. Bean, Atkinson has been an international entertainer for almost 40 years. In 2003, he starred as the lead in Johnny English, a spoof on the James Bond series. The film was followed by Johnny English Reb... Read More

Known as the Stephen King of children's literature, R.L. Stine created a series of scary stories from 1992 through 1997 entitled Goosebumps.  The books have a number of monsters but a ventriloquist's dummy named Slappy is prevalent in many of them.  In 2015 Slappy was brought to life when Goosebumps the movie came to theaters.  With ...

A long time ago, in a galaxy not too far away, Universal Pictures released the most bloated, and expensive movie of all time (prior to Titanic).At the time Waterworld was released, it seemed that it could do nothing right in the eyes of critics and movie-goers, alike. I remember disliking it, immediately, although that was due more to my dislike fo... Read More

Once Upon a Deadpool   Deadpool 2 Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  01/15/2019 10:49 AM EST
When Deadpool made its way to theaters on 2016 it did so with a hard R rating much to the studio's and parents' chagrin.  It was only natural when the sequel arrived that it too would have that same R rating and be inappropriate for children.  In fact, part of what audiences like so much about the films and the character is his crass deme...

Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) had a string of hit action movies in the 1970s and 1980s but those hits waned by the latter part of 1980s and he didn't make movies for a few years.  Then in 1993, he starred in another action film called Cliffhanger. Based in the mountains of the Northwestern United States and filmed in the Italian Alps, the Renny H... Read More

It's been a while since we've been treated to a highly stylized film in the vain of film noir.  During the 1990's we saw quite a bit of that genre but we seemed to have lost sight of it with all the action/superhero films of this millennia.  Bad Times At the El Royale reminds us of why we loved these types of movies and what a beautifully...

(Nathan M Rose)  01/07/2019 11:23 PM EST
Hailing from the mind of Stephen King, Castle Rock is a town used in most of his novels, and now with the resurgence of Stephen King films, Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason took the opportunity - with the blessing of the master of horror himself- Stephen King, to create an Anthology Series entitled Castle Rock, with  a cast of actors from some of ...

Giving the go-ahead to a comedy with Kevin Hart (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) set in a high school, being directed by the proven Malcolm D. Lee, had to have been one of the easiest movie studio decisions of the year.   Neither actor ever really strays too far from their standard material and you generally kn... Read More

(Sean McCloskey)  12/28/2018 11:17 AM EST
Being a fan of the Predator series I was excited when a new one was announced and was released in theaters this fall. However,  The Predator just didn't live up to my expectations.  The problem is I can't exactly pinpoint exactly why.  The movie wasn't bad - I was entertained but for some reason, I just didn't like it.  The...
