Stan & Ollie Theatrical Review

Over the years the entertainment industry has given birth to some very beguilingly comedy duos. I'm sure you know some of them; they crop up every decade. Some disappear as quickly as they arrived, others leave behind them a vague memory, but a few brilliant ones leave behind an enduring legacy.Unless you've lived under a rock somewhere, you'll kno...

M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) is known for his dramatic thrillers that offer a twist.  He usually keeps the audience guessing as to what is really going on and reveals the truth at the end, often to the surprise of the viewers.  In 2000 he presented fans with a different type of "superhero" story in Unbreakable starring S...

When Deadpool made its way to theaters on 2016 it did so with a hard R rating much to the studio's and parents' chagrin.  It was only natural when the sequel arrived that it too would have that same R rating and be inappropriate for children.  In fact, part of what audiences like so much about the films and the character is his crass deme...

Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) had a string of hit action movies in the 1970s and 1980s but those hits waned by the latter part of 1980s and he didn't make movies for a few years.  Then in 1993, he starred in another action film called Cliffhanger. Based in the mountains of the Northwestern United States and filmed in the Italian Alps, the Renny H... Read More

It's been a while since we've been treated to a highly stylized film in the vain of film noir.  During the 1990's we saw quite a bit of that genre but we seemed to have lost sight of it with all the action/superhero films of this millennia.  Bad Times At the El Royale reminds us of why we loved these types of movies and what a beautifully...

Castle Rock 4K Ultra HD Review
Castle Rock   Castle Rock 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  1/7/2019 11:23 PM EDT
Hailing from the mind of Stephen King, Castle Rock is a town used in most of his novels, and now with the resurgence of Stephen King films, Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason took the opportunity - with the blessing of the master of horror himself- Stephen King, to create an Anthology Series entitled Castle Rock, with  a cast of actors from some of ...

Ninety years ago, as a female in this country, I would not have been able to write this review and have it published.  Those doors would have been closed to me.  Even sixty years ago some of those doors still were not open to women as we were expected to stay at home and take care of our husband and children.  When Ruth Bader Ginsbur...

Giving the go-ahead to a comedy with Kevin Hart (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) set in a high school, being directed by the proven Malcolm D. Lee, had to have been one of the easiest movie studio decisions of the year.   Neither actor ever really strays too far from their standard material and you generally kn... Read More

Richard Wershe Jr. (newcomer Richie Merritt) was born on July 1969 but never stood a chance at having a normal life.  He lived in Detroit, Michigan with his father, who sold guns illegally, and his drug addict sister.  At fourteen years old he became the youngest ever FBI informant but was abandoned when three years alter he was arrested ...

(Sean McCloskey)  12/28/2018 11:17 AM EDT
Being a fan of the Predator series I was excited when a new one was announced and was released in theaters this fall. However,  The Predator just didn't live up to my expectations.  The problem is I can't exactly pinpoint exactly why.  The movie wasn't bad - I was entertained but for some reason, I just didn't like it.  The...
