Far From the Madding Crowd Blu-ray Review
Far From the Madding Crowd   Far From the Madding Crowd Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  8/11/2015 11:34 AM EST
To be an independent woman in 1870's England was incredibly difficult.  To have three suitors along with that independence lent itself not only to gossip but also to trials, tribulations and heartache.  Bathsheba Everdene is the woman described above and the heroine of the movie Far From The Maddening Crowd, based on the novel by Thomas H...

Hot Pursuit Blu-ray Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  8/11/2015 8:51 AM EST
When you see a movie starring Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line) and Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), you have high hopes it will be good.  Sadly, Hot Pursuit completely missed the mark by not utilizing these two talented ladies. I‘m not sure what they saw in this film when they read the script, but, it isn't funny, interesting or original.... Read More

There's no place like Home? What if one day instead of going over the rainbow, Glenda's bubble came to your home and relocated you to a new house on the other side of the globe so the munchkins could live in your neighborhood? Well for the Munchkins it would be THE BEST DAY EVER! And so it is for the Boov! DreamWorks Animation's late... Read More

Fantastic Four Theatrical Review
Fantastic Four   Fantastic Four Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  8/6/2015 10:42 AM EST
Simply stated, Fantastic Four is the best comic book movie of 2015. In a year that brought us very dull offerings from the Marvel/Disney cinematic universe, this little movie puts energy back into the over saturated superhero genre.While the story differs from it's comic book origins, it still works in the film — Reed Richards, ...

Insurgent Blu-ray Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  8/4/2015 10:57 AM EST
Insurgent, the second in the trilogy by Veronica Roth's Divergent series, hits stores Tuesday, August 4, on Blu-ray and DVD.  In the ever present quest for commercial dominance, I'm sure this Blu-ray will fare well based on the popularity of the book series and the stars of the movie.The film picks up pretty much where the first o...

The Casual Vacancy Blu-ray Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  8/3/2015 4:40 PM EST
Never judge a book by its cover.  That is one of the lessons of The Casual Vacancy, the J.K Rowling book adaptation that was a three hour miniseries on BBC and HBO. Lesson two – our actions affect those around us, so be careful of what you say and do because it can have unintended consequences.=Pagford seems like a quaint, idyl... Read More

The End of The Tour Theatrical Review
The End of The Tour   The End of The Tour Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  7/31/2015 9:55 AM EST
I'm not quite sure how to describe The End of The Tour.  So many adjectives come to mind, it's hard to know which ones to choose. The ones that jump out are intense, philosophical, poignant, introspective, intelligent, and slightly depressing.Based on a novel by David Lipsky, it tells the story of Lipsky's five day interview with acc...

The IMF (Impossible Missions Force... Read More

Vacation Theatrical Review
Vacation   Vacation Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  7/28/2015 10:03 AM EST
Once upon a time, my late cousin Alex effortlessly hit comedic treasure (in our small world) forever turning a simple word, pantalones, into an instant trigger for laughter.  Similarly (though on a much larger scale of recognition), John Hughes forever changed a simple word...Vacation.Some scenes do push attempts at dark and raunchy a little o...

Justice League: Gods and Monsters   Justice League: Gods and Monsters Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  7/28/2015 9:55 AM EST
Coming to Blu-ray/DVD this week is a reimagining of sorts of the Justice League we all know and love in the full-length feature film, Justice League:  Gods and Monsters. Imagine if you will, a world where there is a Superman, but no Clark Kent, a Batman, but no Bruce Wayne, A Wonder Woman, but no Princess Diana. These are some of the changes t... Read More
