Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
Jennifer Broderick | Aug 14, 2017
Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  The Long Haul is a cute movie, with a new cast, that flows the way the prior two movies in the franchise did.  Aimed at the younger school age, it is a resourceful movie but the adults may crave a deeper philosophy than presented.

Riverdale: The Complete First Season
Allison Rose | Aug 14, 2017
Drama, Drama, and more Drama ensue.  There is blackmail, murder, perceived incest, implied incest, teenage angst and for good measure… “Dark Betty”.  The scripts play out like a soap opera because that is what they basically are and things that you never see coming hit you like a ton of bricks.

Wind River
Allison Rose | Aug 11, 2017
There is a reason Wind River is gaining momentum.  While it can be hard to watch at times, it is a compelling story that envelopes the audience from the opening scenes.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
Allison Rose | Aug 10, 2017
Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature's animation is well done and the colors are typical of an animated feature geared towards younger audiences.  Vibrant greens and reds catch the eye beautifully and the dark colors are still bright enough to not overshadow the scenes.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Jennifer Broderick | Aug 09, 2017
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword blurred the lines between fairytale and history making the audience think for itself. Watching King Arthur: Legend of The Sword is a visceral experience - one you won’t be able to tear your eyes away from.

Going in Style
Paul Kates | Aug 08, 2017
Going in Style is an easy movie to follow that will make you laugh from beginning to end. They were able to bring a more lighthearted view to a serious issue that many seniors face today, living longer than you can afford to.

Blindspot: The Complete Second Season
Jennifer Broderick | Aug 08, 2017
Blindspot has clearly shown what creative writing, determination, and the casting of the right actors can do for a show- bring it an audience that is mesmerized and captivated by the story and sub-plots that clearly exist to support the show.

Crashing: The Complete First Season
Allison Rose | Aug 07, 2017
The writing is pretty good and flows nicely.  With a few episodes directed by Judd Apatow (Trainwreck), there is also a feel of gawky realism that makes the audience sympathetic.  It seems HBO has yet another hit on its hands.  I hope Crashing can continue the momentum it built in season one.

Big Little Lies
Allison Rose | Aug 01, 2017
With a good old fashioned “whodunit” plot surrounded by narcissistic people and their spoiled children, Big Little Lies offers quality entertainment that we have come to expect from HBO.  This is one show that should not be missed.

Going in Style
Allison Rose | Aug 01, 2017
While meant to be a comedy, this remake makes a statement regarding our elderly and how we treat them. After working all their lives, greed sees their pensions ripped out from under them and their social security isn’t enough for them to live on.
