The Boss Baby
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 27, 2017
Baldwin is perfect as the voice of the Boss Baby.  His deep vocal tones are authoritative and commanding, which make Boss Baby believable.  Kudrow and Kimmel have a soothing quality to their voices that make them great choices for the parents. | Full Review...
Atomic Blonde
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 26, 2017
While I expected one of the plot twists in the film (making it somewhat predictable), I didn’t see a second one that blindsided me at the end of the film and made for a nice surprise.  Atomic Blonde had good flow and pacing and just the right amount of action so it didn’t go over the top. | Full Review...
Dunkirk
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 18, 2017
Hans Zimmer’s score also added an additional element to the overall feel of Dunkirk and helped build the suspense and momentum throughout. The cinematography was exceptional with shots from above of a vast waterway and close up views of the beach, inside a ship, and the French shoreline. | Full Review...
Resident Evil: Vendetta
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 18, 2017
Fans of Resident Evil who enjoy the video game will love being enveloped once again in the game through this latest release.  The action, graphics and story are good enough to be included in the franchise.  And if you include yourself in that grouping then you should definitely invest in the 4K version. | Full Review...
Song to Song
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 12, 2017
Malick has a distinct eye and his visuals are unique and interesting....His knack for creating the electric sexual undercurrent throughout the film should be commended.  While we rarely see an actual lovemaking scene, the smallest of glances and touches ignite the screen. | Full Review...
The Lost City of Z
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 10, 2017
Charlie Hunnam is very good as Fawcett playing him with a calm demeanor and not the obsessive, goal driven human one might think he might have been in real life. | Full Review...
Léon: The Professional
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 10, 2017
Besson’s voice is definitely unique and distinct in everything he writes and directs. His decidedly French influence is obvious in everything from angles and costumes to the music chosen for his films’ soundtracks.  Leon: The Professional is no different, which is part of what makes it such a classic movie loved by audiences around the world. | Full Review...
Their Finest
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 09, 2017
The cast is one of the gems of Their Finest.  Arterton combines an inner strength with an outward vulnerability and naiveté to create the perfect Catrin.  She is sweet and mild but possesses a fire hidden underneath the surface that she doesn’t even realize she has. | Full Review...
The Big Sick
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 07, 2017
The sincerity of the tale and the unexpected success of Nanjiani as the male lead make The Big Sick tantalizing and infectiously (pun intended) appealing.  In a world full of explosions and car chases, this movie offers something different and executes it nicely. | Full Review...
Absolutely Anything
Allison Hazlett-Rose |  Jul 05, 2017
With a terrific cast and one of the Monty Python writers penning the script for Absolutely Anything, I had hopes for something really fun.  Unfortunately, I got mildly entertaining fare for an hour and a half. | Full Review...
