Land   Land Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/11/2021 3:31 PM EST
Majestic and beautiful, the Rocky Mountains can be a place of tranquility and peacefulness. It can also be isolating and lonely.  While that might seem appealing for various reasons, it is dangerous, especially during the harsh winter months.  Land, the new film starring and directed by Robin Wright (The Princess Bride, Wonder Woman), tou...

Judas and the Black Messiah   Judas and the Black Messiah Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/10/2021 4:08 PM EST
Established in 1966, The Black Panther Party was a polarizing and violent presence in the fight for civil rights.  During that time, Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya; Get Out), the chairman of the Illinois chapter was betrayed by a low-level thief, Bill O'Neal (LaKeith Stanfield; Sorry to Bother You), who infiltrated the Black Panther organization...

Love Story   Love Story Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/5/2021 4:58 PM EST
Fifty years ago, a writer named Erich Segal (Yellow Submarine) penned a screenplay and sold it to Paramount Pictures.  While the film was in production, Paramount decided Segal should release it as a novel first, in order to garner interest in the upcoming movie.  The novel did exactly what Paramount had hoped it would do…it became...

Bliss   Bliss Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/4/2021 1:02 PM EST
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...

2012   2012 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/3/2021 10:02 PM EST
The Mayan Civilization was one culture that carefully and closely studied astronomy, recording and detailing the ever-changing night sky.  Through these observations, the Mayan people created several complex calendars.  For centuries after their creation, scholars have studied and dissected these calendars, learning about astrology and ho...

Let Him Go   Let Him Go Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/2/2021 8:43 AM EST
When writer/director Thomas Bezucha (The Family Stone) read Larry Watson's novel entitled, Let Him Go, he knew he wanted to make it into a movie.  With rich, complex characters and a gut-wrenching story, Bezucha brought his expertise to this neo-western, thriller and guided an all-star cast through a physical and emotional journey.  Thoug...

Palmer   Palmer Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/29/2021 12:05 AM EST
"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...

The Little Things   The Little Things Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/28/2021 10:10 AM EST
I admit it, I am fascinated by serial killers.  I question why they do what they do, how their minds work to play out the details of their crimes, what sick satisfaction they get, especially when they torture and murder innocent people. I know experts have said it's having power over their victims that motivates them but it still intrigues me ... Read More

Season One, Episode One   Resident Alien Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/27/2021 7:34 PM EST
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...

Saint Maud   Saint Maud Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/26/2021 7:26 PM EST
Nurses are often taken for granted.  They are with patients sometimes more than the patient's own family and often do what is necessary to make those that are sick feel a little more comfortable.  Nurses and home care workers who work with terminally ill patients must be akin to saints, as they take care of individuals who they know will ...
