In 1981, a musical by Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen called Dreamgirls hit Broadway.  Based on the 1960's R&B acts trying and somewhat succeeding to make it in show business, it was nominated for 13 Tony awards, ultimately winning 6 plus two Grammys as well.  In 2006, Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast – 2017 live-acti...

What would you do if you found a magic lamp that could grant you wishes?  What would you wish for?  What if the lamp was instead a Chinese music box with an ancient inscription you can't quite decipher but you soon realize you can make those wishes?  What happens when you start to realize those wishes had dire consequences?  Tha...

Almost anyone who travels fears a plane crash at some point in their lives.  But what happens when it is in a small plane in a remote area of the mountains with no flight plan submitted so no one knows you are missing?  And what happens when the tail of the plane with the homing beacon landed on a different part of the mountain? And what ... Read More

A Fish Called Wanda Blu-ray Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/03/2017 2:54 PM EDT
It's been almost 30 years since A Fish Called Wanda was in movie theaters. Co-written, co-directed and starring John Cleese (Monty Python and the Holy Grail), the smart comedy was nominated for three Academy Awards with Kevin Kline (Dave) winning for Best Supporting Actor. Arrow Video decided the movie needed a rem...

In 1990, James Ellroy (The Black Dahlia) wrote the third book in what became known as his L.A. Quartet, L.A. Confidential.  Seven years later, a movie adaptation with the same name opened in theaters nationwide and garnered both critical acclaim and box office success.  Nominated for nine academy award nominations, it ultimately lost...

Taken Blu-ray Review
Taken: The Complete First Season One   Taken Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/28/2017 10:20 AM EDT
"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that'll be the end of ... Read More

Empire DVD Review
Empire: The Complete Third Season   Empire DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/26/2017 4:51 PM EDT
If you thought Seasons One and Two of the hit television show Empire where chock full, then get ready for Season Three.  Available now on DVD, the eighteen episode season really packs a punch.  From drama, murder, backstabbing and a new baby in the mix, the weekly nighttime soap opera seems to be hitting all the marks necessary ...

Modern Family DVD Review
Modern Family: The Complete Eighth Season   Modern Family DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/25/2017 3:18 PM EDT
A good run for a television show is about four to five seasons, so when you have one that is still going through Season Eight with renewals for another two seasons, you know it's a quality show.  When that same show has been nominated every year for an Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy and has won the award five out of Eight years it speaks v...

Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season   Lethal Weapon Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/21/2017 2:10 PM EDT
In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon brought us the comedy/action team of Mel Gibson (Braveheart) and Danny Glover (Shooter) and it was so genius it spawned three sequels.  Almost 20 years after the last film hit theaters, the powers that be (seemingly out of fresh ideas) decided to make it into a television series. Season One aired... Read More

The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season   The Big Bang Theory Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/20/2017 11:55 AM EDT
For the past ten years, the television show The Big Bang Theory has made us laugh.  With a renewal for at least two more seasons, we can rest assured the gang will all be together and geeky as ever.  This group of "scientists" has taught us more than we ever thought they could and has made being a nerd seem almost cool...
