Batman Lego Movie
Allison Rose | Jun 13, 2017
Very funny moments happen throughout (the Batman Lego Movie), so you can’t help but walk away afterward with a smile on your face.  There are the occasional lighthearted jabs and the inside jokes for those well versed in the superhero world but even little ones who don’t know the hints will still love the film.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8
Allison Rose | Jun 13, 2017
The acting is exactly what we have come to expect from these actors the last 8 years and they stay true to form.  The various directors, including Somerhalder, Wesley and series creator Julie Plec (The Originals), seamlessly move from one episode to the next without losing the feel of the season.

John Wick, Chapter 2
Paul Kates | Jun 12, 2017
With a background in stunt choreography,  director Chad Stahelski uses his knowledge well, using the fight scenes to move the story along to a conclusion that isn’t wholly surprising, but the end scene does set the third movie in the series up quite nicely.

John Wick, Chapter 2
Allison Rose | Jun 08, 2017
John Wick: Chapter 2 is a Tour de Force of action sequences including hand to hand combat, guns, knives, and cars and Stuntman turned director, Chad Stahelski (Captain America: Civil War), showcases them all beautifully.

The Mummy
Allison Rose | Jun 07, 2017
Dark is definitely the descriptive term I would use for The Mummy, as it is much less fun and campy than the 1999 version

Beauty and the Beast
Allison Rose | Jun 06, 2017
Disney is on a role with their movies, both animated and live-action, and the production value is part of the reason why.  The time taken to create the set pieces that come to life and all the special effects sequences are incredibly done and, though they had the potential to, don’t seem cheesy or fake in any way.

Aftermath
Allison Rose | Jun 06, 2017
For those looking for action hero Schwarzenegger, he isn’t anywhere to be found in this film but with a very talented cast members, the movie has some great moments.

Bambi
Jennifer Broderick | Jun 06, 2017
The Digital HD comes with one exclusive bonus feature- Celebrating Tyrus Wong.  This is almost a nine-minute bonus of how Mr. Wong's life and art influences Bambi. This is a unique opportunity to really see what went into the actual creating of Bambi.

The Young Pope
Jennifer Broderick | Jun 05, 2017
The Young Pope is a must see from the beginning of the first episode. It starts off with a huge wow factor that causes one’s mouth to drop in utter fascination. While the season takes the wow factor down several notches each episode, the fascination remains, mostly because of Law’s performance.

Ex Machina
Jennifer Broderick | Jun 05, 2017
For the upgraded visual presentation alone, Ex Machina is a must-have to add to your collection.  In addition, the philosophical conversations between the characters bring this movie to a higher level than most simple plots.
