In 1992, DC Comics decided to create a crossover story that saw the Justice League battle Doomsday.  However, unlike most of the DC comics, this story didn't end so well for our superhero friends and, shockingly, ended with Superman's demise.  While some of the media felt it was nothing more than a publicity stunt, it created a th...

Riverdale DVD Review
Riverdale: The Complete Second Season   Riverdale DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  8/6/2018 11:03 AM EDT
Riverdale Season One began with a murder and ended with a gunshot so it seems no surprise that Season Two was ripe with violence and one dead body piling up after another.  At twenty-two episodes long it offered everything a good nighttime soap opera should have - murders, mysteries, people getting beat up, corruption, wealthy individuals pull...

When one here's the name Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) the first thing that pops into one's mind is generally slapstick, physical comedies and immature, unintelligent characters.  It was a gamble then for him to take on a depraved and serious film such as Dark Crimes.  The story, as the title would suggest, is dark and some woul...

If you are in your forties or older you undoubtedly remember Goldie Hawn () as the cruel, spoiled heiress who gets amnesia and ends up thinking she is married to Dean (Kurt Russell; The Hateful Eight) and that they have 3 sons.  She cooks and cleans for them and builds a life until one day her memory is triggered and she remembers she is wealt...

The Equalizer began as a television series on CBS back in the late 1980's and starred Edward Woodward (The Wicker Man). It ran for four seasons and was nominated for numerous awards before being canceled.  In 2014, Denzel Washington (Training Day) brought the character back to life in a feature film that garnered a following among fans and som...

If you search for The Quick and the Dead on the popular pseudo encyclopedia website Wikipedia you will come up with four unique and different entries that span about 60 years.  The first on the list is a Nazi-occupied Europe war film, the second a documentary about racing,  The third a television movie and the last is 1995's Sam Raimi (Sp...

Isle of Dogs Blu-ray Review

Man's best friend.  They are faithful and true and generally loving.  But what happens when man turns against them? Wes Anderson's (Fantastic Mr. Fox) stop-motion animation film Isle of Dogs offers a heartbreaking tale (or tail as the case may be) that makes you look at dogs in a way that you may have seen them seen them before but that i...

Remember those books where the ending you got depended on which plot you chose?  Imagine being able to do the same thing with a television show.  HBO took that concept and while they didn't completely transfer it, they certainly updated it to incorporate today's technology.  Imagine an app for your phone that allows you to choose dif...

The month was July, the year 1969.  In the middle of the month, two events would occur within days of each other that would not only have significance for the Kennedy family but would also captivate millions of Americans.  The second event would happen two days after the first when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon fulfilling a promise th...

For the last ten years, Marvel Studios has been entertaining us with tales of superheroes and Gods.  In the first half of 2018 alone we were treated to blockbusters The Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War and as we hit the halfway point of the year they are once again delighting us with their next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ant...
