Where'd You Go, Bernadette   Where'd You Go, Bernadette Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/27/2019 12:09 PM EDT
In 2012 Little, Brown and Company published a novel by Maria Semple called Where'd You Go, Bernadette. The book, which sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for a year, is told mostly through correspondence with some narration by Bernadette's teenage daughter Bee thrown in.  Annapurna Pictures bought the film's rights to adapt the stor...

In 2013 audiences were first introduced to Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler; The Phantom of the Opera) when he protected the White House and the President of the United States in Olympus Has Fallen.  Three years later he returned to the character once again in the sequel, London Has Fallen.  This year the third installment...

Blinded by the Light   Blinded by the Light Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/19/2019 8:57 AM EDT
I read a quote somewhere…"Music is heard with the ears, understood with the heart" and I thought how true that statement was.  There are so many styles of music worldwide but we don't always need to understand the language the song is sung in to sense that the lyrics are speaking to us personally. From Country to Rap to Heavy ... Read More

Robocop   Robocop Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  11/18/2019 5:07 PM EDT
In 1987 I was not ready for RoboCop. By then I had already experienced more than my share of Horror, Sci-Fi and Action films. Sitting in that darkened theater with my friends, watching the hyper-violent, and frenetically paced movie, I was struck by how it had so much more to say than just 'look at how bloody I am!'  RoboCop was making...

Good Boys   Good Boys Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/12/2019 7:49 PM EDT
Middle school…the hormones, the bullying, the embarrassing situations that lurk behind every corner.  Walking that fine line between childhood and young adult can be difficult to navigate, which is why there have been numerous films highlighting the trials and tribulations of that tumultuous time in one's life.  Of course, none...

The Peanut Butter Falcon   The Peanut Butter Falcon Blu-ray Review
(Judith Raymer)  11/11/2019 9:07 PM EDT
Is awards season here yet?  I know. I know. It's not enough that we welcome Thanksgiving and Christmas along with Halloween.  Now, I'm rushing us to nominations. The Peanut Butter Falcon, however, has some strong award contending performances.  Where to even begin…Touted as "a modern Mark Twain style adventure tale...a tw... Read More

The Art of Racing in the Rain   The Art of Racing in the Rain Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/6/2019 11:19 AM EDT
In 2008 author Garth Stein's third novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, was published and sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for 156 weeks. In 2009 Universal Pictures bought the rights and planned for Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy) to play the main character of Enzo but the movie never had a director attached and was never ma...

Universal Soldier   Universal Soldier 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/4/2019 9:31 PM EDT
The 1980s and early 1990s saw a growth in action films in the United States; a trend that seems to have continued well into recent years.  Stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard) were becoming household names.  Car chases, gunfights, and hand to hand combat were the ...

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark   Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  11/4/2019 5:13 PM EDT
PG-13 horror movies, always conjure up images of milquetoast monsters, bloodless kill- scenes, and plots which cater to an, at best, immature audience. I know this seems like a seriously gross generalization, and perhaps it is a tad judgmental, but I have been to too many of them to think otherwise. Or have I! This is not the case with Scary S...

Red Heat   Red Heat 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/29/2019 11:55 PM EDT
In the 1980s the United States was engrossed in a couple of wars – The Cold War and the War on Drugs.  Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator) was also one of the biggest action stars in movies.  It was only natural to combine those two ideas to make a film starring "Arnie"  and that is exactly what TriStar Pictures did in...
