Trolls Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/3/2016 2:53 PM EST
Take some cute, colorful characters, mean monsters, a story with a moral and some fun songs and what do you get?  In general, any number of animated films but in this case specifically…Trolls.  DreamWorks and Twentieth Century Fox's latest animated feature hits theaters November 4, 2016, and it promises to be an ...

Doctor Strange Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  11/3/2016 11:11 AM EST
The Marvel universe seems to be never ending.  With a plethora of comic book heroes and villains to draw from, they manage to crank out a movie every three to six months it seems.  Each time the hype and excitement around the movie is immense, whether or not it is warranted.  This month's hero of choice is Doctor Strange (Benedic...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/27/2016 11:02 AM EST
If you like solving puzzles, you should read every one of Dan Brown's novels.  He combines cyphers with history and architectural beauty.  He has made Professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks; Sully) everyone's favorite teacher and sent us racing all over the world unravelling conspiracies.  His 2013 novel,&nbs...

The Pickle Recipe Theatrical Review

(Judith Raymer)  10/21/2016 8:21 AM EST
Ah, those memories of culinary ecstasy on our palates.  The yearn to taste that unparalleled delight just once more leading to the declaration that one would die or kill for the opportunity; even better...for the recipe.  The Pickle Recipe was born from just such a recollection.  Writers/Producers Gary Wolfson and Sheldon Cohn were t...

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Theatrical Review
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back   Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Theatrical Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  10/20/2016 1:54 PM EST
"Reach for the stars" is a common idiom encouraging everyone to try their best, and with this second installment of Jack Reacher's adventures, Director Edward Zwick tried his very best to reach as high as he could- and I think it paid off.  Based on the 18th book in author Lee Child's series, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back follo...

American Pastoral Theatrical Review
American Pastoral   American Pastoral Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/20/2016 1:24 PM EST
Phillip Roth's (The Human Stain) Pulitzer Prize winning novel American Pastoral is a commentary of 1960's America and the "All-American" white middle class family.  With gripping insight, turmoil, despair, and, ironically, a misguided sense of hope, it chronicles the rise and fall of the not so charmed life of the Levovs and how the ...

Deepwater Horizon Theatrical Review
Deepwater Horizon   Deepwater Horizon Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  9/29/2016 11:54 AM EST
The 2010 BP spill was the worst oil disaster in history.  The Deepwater Horizon rig blew up, sending 210 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days, killing 11 men and innumerable numbers of animals.  We all know what happened. We watched it on television.  However, I'm not sure most of us fully understood t... Read More

The Magnificent Seven Theatrical Review
The Magnificent Seven   The Magnificent Seven Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/22/2016 10:00 AM EST
I never saw the 1960's version of The Magnificent Seven or its predecessor, the Japanese film Seven Samurai, so I have no basis of comparison with the latest remake coming to theaters this week.  All I can say is, as a standalone film, it has action, adventure, and some funny moments that make it a worthwhile movie going experience.When Ro...

Bridget Jones's Baby Theatrical Review
Bridget Jones's Baby   Bridget Jones's Baby Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  9/15/2016 11:43 AM EST
In 1996, Helen Fielding introduced the world to a frumpy, single workingwoman from England in the bestselling novel, Bridget Jones's Diary.  Funny, self-deprecating and certainly relatable, Bridget became an instant success and spawned a movie of the same name in 2001.  Three years later, the film was followed up by its sequel Bridget...

Sully Theatrical Review
Sully   Sully Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  9/8/2016 11:39 AM EST
It was any other normal day in January 2009.  People rushed around the always crowded LaGuardia Airport on their way to destinations all over the world.  For Chelsey "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks; Bridge of Spies) and Jeffrey Skiles (Aaron Eckhart; The Dark Knight), it was just another day "at the Office" in the cock...
