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 EDT
"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 EDT
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 EDT
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 EDT
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 EDT
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 EDT
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...

The Light Between Oceans Theatrical Review
The Light Between Oceans   The Light Between Oceans Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/1/2016 11:39 AM EDT
Have you ever been willing to do almost anything for the person you love? What if it meant doing something that could get you in trouble or could even be illegal?  And if you do that thing, what would be the consequences for everyone involved? M.L. Steadman's debut novel turned major motion picture, The Light Between Oceans, asks the audie... Read More

Little Men Theatrical Review
Little Men   Little Men Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  8/22/2016 12:00 PM EDT
In today's world of blockbuster car chases and super hero films, Ira Sachs' (Love is Strange) Little Men is an interesting change.  Delving into the ideas of childhood friendship and adulthood fights, it is a juxtaposition of innocence and lost ideals and dreams.   It reminds you of what was once good and pure and how it all changes....

Ben-Hur Theatrical Review
Ben-Hur   Ben-Hur Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  8/18/2016 9:06 PM EDT
A quick recap for the rock valley dwellers out there...Ben-Hur is a cinematic soap opera spinning betrayal, prejudice and forgiveness; in which a prince, Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), is forced into slavery after his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell) falsely accuses him of treason.  Fans of the "original" Charlton Heston Ben-Hur ...

War Dogs Theatrical Review
War Dogs   War Dogs Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  8/17/2016 11:54 AM EDT
If you look up the definition of a war dog in the Urban Dictionary, you find, "A political and/or military person who's immorally eager to encourage a people or nation to go to war."  For arms dealers, this is exactly what they are hoping for and when President Bush went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, they couldn't wait to s...
