Pretty in Pink   Pretty in Pink Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  6/16/2020 8:46 AM EST
If you were a teenager in the 1980s, there is no doubt you were in some way influenced by writer/director John Hughes.  He wrote and sometimes directed hit movie after hit movie, dealing with those awkward high school years when one is trying to discover who they are and how they fit into this world.    More often than not he tackled...

In the late 1970's John Travolta (Pulp Fiction) was riding high in Hollywood.  He was part of a successful television show, Welcome Back, Kotter, and proved he could handle leading man status as Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever and Danny in the film adaptation of the musical, Grease.  In 1980, he decided to star in another movie called...

Disney Channel has a long history of creating wonderful movies made for television despite still being considered to be in its relative youth as a channel.  Always evolving, they had great success with 2006's High School Musical and its two sequels followed by Camp Rock and its sequel and then Descendants and its sequel (Disney is big on seque...

Jaws   Jaws 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  6/1/2020 6:05 PM EST
Forty-five years ago a twenty-six-year-old, up and coming director named Steven Spielberg (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial) took Peter Benchley's novel titled Jaws and made it into a major motion picture.  Considered one of the greatest films of all time, it was the highest-grossing movie until the release of Star Wars two years later.  A ...

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge   Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/29/2020 11:49 AM EST
Almost thirty years ago, Midway games created Mortal Kombat, a Fantasy fighting game that paid homage to actor Jean-Claude Van Dam (Double Impact).  Known for its high level of graphic violence, it not only became one of the highest-grossing gaming franchises of all time but also was the reason for the creation of the video game rating system,...

Sonic The Hedgehog   Sonic The Hedgehog 4K Ultra HD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  5/19/2020 10:29 AM EST
Back in 1990, Sega decided to release their answer to Super Mario Brothers with a fast, little, blue hedgehog named Sonic.  Of course, with all of the remakes and reboots coming out of Hollywood these days, it was only a matter of time before Sonic was brought to life in a live-action movie.  Originally slated to be released in late 2019,...

Flashdance   Flashdance Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/18/2020 5:36 PM EST
Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson produced some of the best films of the 1980s including Beverly Hills Cop and, arguably their most profitable film, Top Gun.  However, their first producing collaboration came in 1983 when they worked on the critically panned but box office hit, Flashdance. Starring Jennifer Beals (Swamp Thing) in her feature f... Read More

Days of Thunder   Days of Thunder 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/18/2020 8:35 AM EST
Tom Cruise (War of The Worlds) is known for his action movies with fast-paced, amazing stunts that, at times, seem death-defying.  After his break out roles in Risky Business and Top Gun, and his terrific performances in more serious movies like Rain Man and Born on the Fourth of July, Cruise decided to join another Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheim...

War of the Worlds   War of the Worlds 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/17/2020 6:55 PM EST
In 1898 H.G. Wells wrote a novel called The War of the Worlds.   It told the fictitious story of an alien invasion taking over the earth.  In 1938 Orson Welles infamously narrated a radio broadcast of the "invasion" but since many listeners tuned in later they missed the announcement at the beginning of the shows stating the new...

Emma   Emma Blu-ray Review
(Alyn Darnay)  5/16/2020 7:09 PM EST
There's something unique, beautiful, and visually stunning about the way that British filmmakers try to recreate a certain era of their history. I'm referring to the Georgian/Regency era when big manner houses dotted the countryside and the polite society of upper-class nobility lived a charmed and somewhat jaded existence. It's a historic period t... Read More
