National Lampoon has had a long tradition of comedic films beginning with 1978's Animal House.  Many of these movies have gone on to earn cult status and have given us some the best comedy scenes in movie history.  How can forget tying grandma to the roof of the car after she passed away in Vacation or the numerous moments that showcased ...

Los Angeles - The City of Angels..or is it?  Statistics show it has one of the highest number of bank robberies in the country.  With an average of one per hour, it seems like a haven for those looking to make a lot of cash fast.  It is only right then that a movie about a bunch of bank robbers would be set there.  Den of Thieve...

It was called the Wild, Wild West for a reason.  There was lawlessness across the open plains and a feud brewed between the white people and the Indians.  The American troops tried their best to keep things orderly but it seemed to have little effect.  As Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale; The Dark Knight) transports dying priso...

In 1958 British Author Michael Bond introduced us to the duffle coat wearing, marmalade-loving bear Paddington.  Then in 1975 BBC television broadcast a series about the beloved bear and in 2014 Warner Bros. gave us a live-action feature film.  Last year they followed that up with Paddington 2, which garnered both critical and audience ac...

Vice Principals DVD Review
Vice Principals: The Complete Series   Vice Principals DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/16/2018 11:00 AM EST
HBO's half-hour comedy series Vice Principals was always meant to be two seasons long.  Creators Jody Hill (Eastbound & Down) and Dan McBride (Pineapple Express) - who also stars – envisioned a feature film originally but then morphed the idea into a short-term television show.  While the first season wasn't overtly funn...

Besides making feature films out of popular novels and comic books, the newest trend is to fashion them after video games.  The latest installment in that endeavor is a movie based on the 1986 arcade game called Rampage.  In the game, players choose to be mutated humans who become giant creatures due to accidents in a science lab.  T...

Imagine if you knew the future.  Imagine if you could predict world events and potentially save thousands of lives a year.  Imagine if there were voices inside your head possessing you to write it all down.  Imagine if you were a young girl who didn't understand it. Imagine people thought you were crazy or disturbed.  For poor L... Read More

HBO is known for quality television that engrosses audiences and keeps them coming back time and time again.  The Sopranos, True Blood and Game of Thrones have all been award winners, just to name a few and the cable network has a strong history excellence in television.  Occasionally they get a mildly entertaining series that has some ap...

Creatures with special abilities have been around in literature and films for a very long time.  Beings that can transform or move objects with their minds or see the future are from the imaginations of some very creative people and they tend to fascinate audiences who are fixated on these ideas.  They also offer a common theme of humans ...

The Americans DVD Review
The Americans: The Complete Fifth Season   The Americans DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/9/2018 8:45 AM EST
When one thinks of compelling television, one undoubtedly thinks of FX's The Americans.  With the recent start of the sixth and final season, we are once again drawn into the dramatic world of international espionage disguised as normal suburban family life… Or is it the other way around?  As we brokenheartedly await ...
