The Predator 4K Ultra HD Review

(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...

I have a Love-Hate relationship with Eli Roth.I can count the number of movies of his, which I have actually enjoyed, on 2 fingers. On the other hand, I think his enthusiasm and love for, and knowledge of, classic horror, and Genre movies, in general, is really admirable.  Not to mention, he really seems like a genuinely good guy. But back to ... Read More

Actor/ Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) is known for his quirky, offbeat comedies so it's no surprise that he decided to tackle Darcey Bell's dark comedy/thriller A Simple Favor.  Outwardly, It seems like a perfect match as he infuses his personality into every thread of the movie but there is a seriousness that permeates which is some...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/17/2018 4:58 PM EDT
In order to bring us the thriller Venom, Columbia Pictures, Sony, and Marvel worked in conjunction and from the previews, Venom looked like the typical alien type scary movie.   I was very unsure of how it would set itself apart from all the other alien movies but Venom brings out the alien in everyone and is actually a carefully scripted cohe...

Racial profiling is an issue that seems to be plaguing this country more and more in the past few years.  Young, male minorities end up on the wrong side of an argument and are senselessly killed when a person in authority pulls a gun unnecessarily.  We have seen numerous news reports about it happening and several films based on this typ...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/17/2018 10:11 AM EDT
Semper Fidelis – Always Loyal… That is the motto of the United States Marine Corps.  Unless you have served as a Marine, you cannot really understand what that means.  Up until now, our perception of what being a marine is like is what we have seen in the media.  Movies like Full Metal Jacket and Born on The 4th of July ...

Parents will do almost anything for their children, but sometimes a grieving parent will do more than anything because they have no choice.  They break the law, they don't care about consequences, and revenge replaces the word justice in a parents mind.   Lakeshore Entertainment and Universal Pictures provide a grim portrayal of what...

Westworld 4K Ultra HD Review
Westworld Season Two: The Door   Westworld 4K Ultra HD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  12/13/2018 9:47 AM EDT
HBO's Westworld premiered in 2016. Based on 1973's film by the same name, the series became very popular for the network, and with a star-filled cast, as well as a surprisingly timely plot, it's not hard to see why.In a time where we are constantly connected to the world around us and are given the instant gratification that the interne...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/11/2018 10:30 AM EDT
It is a well-known fact in Hollywood that Denzel Washington (Fences) never reprises a role or makes a sequel to any of his films so it was a big surprise when it was announced he would be returning as Robert McCall for the second installment of The Equalizer.  The beloved, yet quirky, character from the 2014 movie was destined to be back as th...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/5/2018 11:41 AM EDT
In the 1980s panic gripped the United States as the HIV and AIDS epidemic reached epic proportions, killing a large part of the gay male population.  For over two decades afterward discrimination against those infected with the disease played a prevalent part in the dialogue of the Country.  In 1993 the first major feature film showcased ...
