Wonder Woman Theatrical Review

(Judith Raymer)  6/1/2017 10:02 AM EST
As many a young girl before and after, I dreamed of being Wonder Woman. Years [decades] would pass with multitudes of proposed actors and storylines inspiring an "eh, I can see that," at best. Then came the age of MCU & DCEU (Marvel Cinematic & DC Extended Universes, respectively); and, of course, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious; Ke... Read More

(Judith Raymer)  5/25/2017 10:15 AM EST
Apparently, there was a fourth installment to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise back in 2011.  On Stranger Tides.  While the box office success tells otherwise, the film is likely the most panned.  If Pirates fans can overlook their disappointment with the last installment, they will be more than content to have returned for thi...

Baywatch Theatrical Review

(Judith Raymer)  5/24/2017 3:46 PM EST
Full (or, at least, sincere) Disclosure: Upon hearing early whispers of the long rumored big screen resuscitation of Baywatch, I felt like the inspiration for that "slap in the face" emoji.  That's as much as the Hoff and I agree.  The original Mitch Buchannon, David Hasselhoff (Knight Rider; Guardians of The Galaxy 2), disclose...

(Judith Raymer)  5/18/2017 5:16 PM EST
On the surface, it is a sweet, charming story about young love with a dramatic twist.  As it unfolds, the layers reveal so much more. The story is told in a visually appealing manner that will draw the attention of its intended market base of teens/young adults while introducing complex, mature themes that will engage their parents and open co...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  5/4/2017 9:50 AM EST
In 2014, Marvel Studios released one of their lesser known movies, Guardians of the Galaxy.  Expecting the film to be modestly successful, I'm sure they were shocked when it became a huge summer blockbuster.  With cute characters, funny moments, a kick butt soundtrack and some great special effects, it quickly became an audience ...

The Lost City of Z Theatrical Review
The Lost City of Z   The Lost City of Z Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  4/20/2017 11:20 AM EST
Being wonderfully unspectacular (in the Hollywood sense) is precisely what makes this film unassumingly spectacular.  Missing are the elaborate sets and city populations worth of extras.  In their stead, indigenous tribespeople from the Colombian jungles where the film was shot was included for authenticity.  Lacking are the costumes...

Fate of The Furious Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/13/2017 9:52 AM EST
Usually, after the third or fourth movie in a series, the plots get extremely stupid and the quality and budget go down about 80%.  Heck, sometimes that happens by the sequel so it's amazing to see the eighth film in The Fast and The Furious saga come on so strong and have a good cast, great storyline and amazing stunts and...

Smurfs: The Lost Village Theatrical Review
Smurfs: The Lost Village   Smurfs: The Lost Village Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/6/2017 9:23 AM EST
In 2011, The Smurfs got the "live action" treatment followed by a sequel in 2013.  Both starred Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Hank Azaria (The Simpsons).  While they were hugely successful, they didn't have the same feel as the 1980's Saturday morning cartoon we all knew and loved.  Luckily, Sony A...

Aftermath Theatrical Review
Aftermath   Aftermath Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  4/5/2017 8:47 AM EST
When most people think of the name Arnold Schwarzenegger, they think of explosions, hardcore action, and a high body count. However, with the actor, turned governor turned actor again, getting up there in age, the type of roles that Schwarzenegger is accepting are tending to be more dramatic. A  prime example of this is his latest film, A... Read More

North by Northwest Theatrical Review
North by Northwest   North by Northwest Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  4/4/2017 9:34 AM EST
Alfred Hitchcock was a master of directing. His films, like the man, are legendary. He could evoke emotion with one subtle take and a testament to his brilliance is how his films have stood the test of time. Fathom Events recognizes his genius and brought his classic thriller North by Northwest back to theaters for a one-week event.A... Read More
