Hunter Killer Theatrical Review

I've been ‘jonesing' for a good Action/Adventure film for some time now. It's been quite a while since a really good one has graced the screen. I like getting involved in the film's action, quietly cheering on the hero, watching the complex story unfold, realizing the impossibility of overcoming the situation, and then seeing a slam-bam over ...

Bohemian Rhapsody Theatrical Review

(Alyn Darnay)  10/25/2018 1:17 PM EST
I never rate a movie by what I want it to be; I choose instead to look at it as a stand-alone piece of creative work and how it will impact an audience. With that in mind, if I were to use a one-word grading system to define the film "Bohemian Rhapsody" that word would be "Brilliant". The film is a joyous celebration of the 70's... Read More

According to one report, there are approximately 80,000 drug addiction related deaths each year in the United States alone and opioid addiction is reaching epidemic proportions worldwide.   For so many treatment centers don't really seem to work in the long term so it is a triumph if someone can get clean and stay sober for a year.  The t...

Rowan Atkinson (Four Weddings and a Funeral) is known for his British, slapstick characters like Mr. Bean, and probably one of his most popular behind Bean is Johnny English.  Johnny first graced the big screen in Johnny English back in 2003 and he returned again in 2011's Johnny English Reborn.  Now, after a seven-year hiatus, he resurfa...

Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series   Fraggle Rock Blu-ray Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  10/24/2018 9:35 AM EST
Jim Henson was a master of his craft. Not only did he give us The Muppets but he brought us the beloved series, Fraggle Rock as well. The show debuted in 1983 on HBO in the US (other stations internationally). The series became a hit with kids and continued for four seasons, with the last season airing until March of 1987. Now, those of us who grew... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  10/23/2018 9:42 AM EST
If you love music from the 1970's Swedish pop group ABBA then you surely loved 2008's movie based on the musical filled with their songs, called Mamma Mia! If, like me, you aren't a fan, then that movie and this year's sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again certainly weren't your cup of tea.  Luckily for the former grouping, the second film is se...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/23/2018 8:37 AM EST
Human beings seem to be fascinated by anything supernatural.  Werewolves, ghosts, and vampires are often the subject of stories in books, on television and in movies.  In 2005 author Stephenie Meyer threw her hat in the ring with her young adult novel Twilight.  The book was a best seller, which spawned 3 more books in the series and...

It's hard to imagine that it has been ten years since Twilight first graced the big screen.  In 2005 the vision of writer Stephenie Meyer was published and became a sensation not only amongst young adults but by adults as well.  Edward, Bella, and Jacob captivated people's imaginations and spawned three more books and a total of five movi...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  10/16/2018 9:54 AM EST
If one were to compile a list of the greatest female singers of all time it would certainly include Aretha Franklin, Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, and Mariah Carey.  The list, of course, would be incomplete though without the addition of the incomparable Whitney Houston.  The daughter of Cissy Houston and cousin of singer Dionne Warwick...
