Flora & Ulysses   Flora & Ulysses Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/17/2021 12:06 PM EDT
There is a saying in Hollywood – "Never work with children or animals".  However, if you are cast in a Disney production, chances are you will probably work with one or the other or if you are really lucky, both.  For Alyson Hannigan (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Ben Schwartz (Sonic The Hedgehog), the latter version becam...

Bliss   Bliss Streaming Review

Bliss. Is defined as "perfect happiness, great joy" so as the saying goes…" ignorance is bliss".  The concept behind that quote, in an odd sort of way, is that what we don't know makes us happy, because we are unaware of what we are missing out on in life.  If we did, we might wish we had more.  However, wh...

Palmer   Palmer Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/29/2021 12:05 AM EDT
"Family is who you make it".  With a tagline like that, you get somewhat of a sense of what the latest Fisher Stevens' (Short Circuit) film, Palmer, is all about.  And yet, the movie offers so much more than just a typical family drama.  Predictable at points, Palmer radiates with emotion which keeps the audience yearning f...

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/27/2021 7:34 PM EDT
If there was a trivia question about an actor with a familiar face who has been in tons of movies but whose name people always seem to forget, the answer would inevitably be Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada).  Second place, however, would go to the 49-year-old actor – Alan Tudyk (Firefly).  Tudyk, much like Tucci, has been in ov...

Disney+ streaming service is set to debut WandaVision releasing the first two, of nine thirty-minute, episodes on Friday.When Avengers: Endgame finally made its way into theaters in the Spring of 2019 fans had mixed reactions.  While they had waited ten years for the culmination of the twenty-three-movie saga and were excited to see how it wou...

Locked Down   Locked Down Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/13/2021 12:06 PM EDT
This past year has been a trying experience under the best of circumstances.  Families stuck together 24/7 for weeks at a time. It could drive anyone crazy as little quirks that were once "cute" are now a thorn in the rest of the family's side.  However, what if you were trapped in a London flat with your significant other w...

The Midnight Sky   The Midnight Sky Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  12/23/2020 7:40 PM EDT
In 2016 Random House published the first novel by author Lily Brooks-Dalton entitled Good Morning, Midnight.  Fast forward four years and, in the middle of a global pandemic, the film adaptation, The Midnight Sky, is being released by Netflix.  With a limited theatrical run beginning on December 11, 2020, the streaming service decided to ...

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom   Ma Rainey's Black Bottom Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  12/17/2020 12:38 PM EDT
Gertrude Pridgett was born in April 1886 in Georgia…or, if you believe the 1900 census, she was born in 1882 in Alabama.  Regardless, despite her humble and uneventful beginnings, Gertrude would go on to become known as Ma Rainey (Viola Davis; Suicide Squad) a.k.a. the "Mother of the Blues".  She recorded music with the b...

Wolfwalkers   Wolfwalkers Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  12/11/2020 12:14 AM EDT
In an age of Pixar/Disney/Illuminations computer-drawn animation, it's difficult to imagine "old school" hand-drawn feature films.  They are time-consuming and one wrong stroke of a pen could mean throwing out a drawing and starting all over again.  They also don't have the same level of precision or coloring that a comp...
