Black and Blue Theatrical Review

It's not easy being a police officer.  Every day they put their lives in danger while protecting people who don't necessarily appreciate them, especially in impoverished areas.  Tensions often run high as civilians and law enforcement view each other as the enemy.  Many times these conflicts are racially charged and Caucasian offices...

Everyone's favorite dark fairy godmother, and the teen queen she protects return in the ethereal saga of Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Maleficent (Angelina Jolie; Girl, Interrupted; Salt) and Aurora (Elle Fanning; The Neon Demon; Super 8) welcome us back to the magical realm of the Moors, and introduce us to a Dark (Fae) savior, a ran...

The Joker Theatrical Review
The Joker   The Joker Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/3/2019 4:03 PM EST
Throughout the years, Batman has had numerous nemeses including Penguin, Catwoman, Two-Face, and The Riddler to name a few.  Perhaps one of his most well-known antagonists though is probably Joker.  The menacing figure in clown makeup and a purple suit has always come across as highly unstable.  However, we never truly knew what made...

Judy Theatrical Review

(Alyn Darnay)  9/27/2019 10:21 AM EST
I went to see the new biopic "Judy" fully expecting to watch Renee Zellweger in performance, but she never showed up. That was ok though, because Judy Garland was there on the screen filling in for her, and was she ever good.Playing a real-life person is the hardest challenge facing any actor, especially if that person is well known and b...

Abominable   Abominable Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/26/2019 9:50 AM EST
Throughout history, there have been rumors of mythical creatures roaming the forests, seas, and mountains of the world.  From the Loch Ness Monster to Chupacabra and Sasquatch/Bigfoot to its colder weather cousin The Abominable Snowman/Yeti tales have been told as people claim to have seen them.  Generally, those people are ridiculed and ...

Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
Downton Abbey   Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/19/2019 5:11 PM EST
"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 EST
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

Hustlers Theatrical Review
Hustlers   Hustlers Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/12/2019 4:09 PM EST
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 Theatrical Review
The Goldfinch   The Goldfinch Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/12/2019 10:49 AM EST
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...

It Chapter Two Theatrical Review
It Chapter Two   It Chapter Two Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/3/2019 12:01 PM EST
Arguably, one of the most highly anticipated films of this year is the ending of the highest-grossing horror film of all time…It.  People have been waiting for It Chapter Two since they flocked to theaters two years ago to watch Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgard; Deadpool 2) terrorize the small town of Derry.  I suppose the "...
