The fall season… the nights get cooler, the leaves change color, retail stores start gearing up for the holiday shopping frenzy and movie theaters start getting a variety of films to play.  Of course, there are the Oscar-worthy set plus the action films intent on getting teenage boys out of the house and finally the family friend v...

Midway Theatrical Review
Midway   Midway Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  11/7/2019 9:23 AM EDT
After a dearth of good films to watch, here comes "MIDWAY", a big screen WWII action adventure based upon real life events that had me wanting more when it was over. Most interestingly this is not a big budget studio film, the fact is no studio wanted to back it, saving their money I guess, for more Super Hero reboots. So this film i... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  10/30/2019 4:42 PM EDT
In the early 1980's special effects supervisor and small-time director, James Cameron (Avatar) had a feverish dream of robots from the future coming to destroy the present. He wrote a treatment and sold it to his production partner, Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) for the price of only $1.00, with the condition he could direct the film. Thus ... Read More

If you are a fan of dark, disturbing and twisted stories then you undoubtedly are a fan of author Stephen King.  With best-selling books like Pet Sematary, Carrie, It, Cujo, Misery, etc. he has etched his permanent place in literary society for generations to come.  With so many of his novels having been adapted into movies, he has also c...

The Current War Theatrical Review
The Current War   The Current War Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  10/25/2019 10:14 AM EDT
It's that time of year again, just before the Holiday Blockbusters hit the theaters, and the distributors are pushing their leftover stock of mediocre films. "The Current War" is a prime example. It sat on the shelf unreleased for two years, ever since its less than spectacular premier at the Toronto Film Festival. However, during that ti... Read More

It's not easy being a police officer.  Every day they put their lives in danger while protecting people who don't necessarily appreciate them, especially in impoverished areas.  Tensions often run high as civilians and law enforcement view each other as the enemy.  Many times these conflicts are racially charged and Caucasian offices...

Everyone's favorite dark fairy godmother, and the teen queen she protects return in the ethereal saga of Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Maleficent (Angelina Jolie; Girl, Interrupted; Salt) and Aurora (Elle Fanning; The Neon Demon; Super 8) welcome us back to the magical realm of the Moors, and introduce us to a Dark (Fae) savior, a ran...

Joker Theatrical Review
Joker   Joker Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/3/2019 4:03 PM EDT
Throughout the years, Batman has had numerous nemeses including Penguin, Catwoman, Two-Face, and The Riddler to name a few.  Perhaps one of his most well-known antagonists though is probably Joker.  The menacing figure in clown makeup and a purple suit has always come across as highly unstable.  However, we never truly knew what made...

Judy Theatrical Review
Judy   Judy Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/27/2019 10:21 AM EDT
I went to see the new biopic "Judy" fully expecting to watch Renee Zellweger in performance, but she never showed up. That was ok though, because Judy Garland was there on the screen filling in for her, and was she ever good.Playing a real-life person is the hardest challenge facing any actor, especially if that person is well known and b...

Abominable   Abominable Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/26/2019 9:50 AM EDT
Throughout history, there have been rumors of mythical creatures roaming the forests, seas, and mountains of the world.  From the Loch Ness Monster to Chupacabra and Sasquatch/Bigfoot to its colder weather cousin The Abominable Snowman/Yeti tales have been told as people claim to have seen them.  Generally, those people are ridiculed and ...
