(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/27/2021 9:42 AM EDT
Let's face it, Disney has some of the best-animated villains of all time, especially the female ones.  From the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty to Ursula in The Little Mermaid, they are the epitome of pure evil.  Of course, somewhere towards the top of the list lies the woman who steals dogs ...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/26/2021 1:23 PM EDT
College friends and co-writers Brian Woods and Scott Beck (Haunt) had an idea for a film and wrote a "spec script" for it.  In 2016, John Krasinski (The Office) read A Quiet Place and signed on to direct and rewrite the script.  By the time filming began in the Fall of 2017, Krasinski and his wife, actress Emily Blunt (Mary Popp...

Carry on my wayward son, there'll be peace when you are done…so begins the song by Kansas that has become associated with the WB/CW television show, Supernatural.  Those lyrics perfectly reflect the idea and premise of the show that has entertained audiences for fifteen seasons.  After three hundred and twenty-seven episodes, t...

When J.J. Abrams (Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens) was sixteen years old, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial came out in movie theaters.  Looking at Abrams' career, it is hard to imagine he wasn't influenced by the Spielberg film.  Fast forward, almost thirty years, and Abrams wrote a script about a group of kids that accidental...

Riding high off of the success of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Arnold Schwarzenegger teamed up once again with Director John McTiernan (Predator) to film a somewhat campy/cheesy movie called Last Action Hero.  Hoping to cash in on their previous success, Last Action Hero, written by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) and David Arnott (The Adve...

Mission: Impossible 25th Anniversary Collectors Edition   Mission: Impossible Blu-ray Review

In September of 1966, an action/spy fiction television show first aired on CBS.  Mission: Impossible aired for seven seasons (171 episodes) before going off the air and gave us an iconic line, "This message will self-destruct", that many still recognize today.  Fifteen years later, the show was revived but only lasted two years....

Spiral: From The Book of Saw   Spiral: From The Book of Saw Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/13/2021 8:41 PM EDT
There are various subgenres under the movie category horror.  Some are blood and gore and carnage, some are psychological thrillers, and some are both.  Back in 2004, the world got a glimpse of the latter when Saw became an international hit. Over the next thirteen years, seven more films were released to varying degrees of success. ... Read More

Social Media has opened up a whole new world full of ideas and ideals to individuals of all ages.  It can also be a scary place where despicable individuals lurk to prey on innocent and/or naïve people, many of whom are impressionable young women.  These predators try everything from indecent exposure online to meeting up with these ...
