In today's world of combining big acts for even bigger theatrics, this delightful pairing of the stoic Batman and the fun-loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is sure to entertain fans both new and old. While admittedly initially dubious upon hearing the premise, I found the film very clever and enjoyable. The dialogue and action scenes are very wel... Read More

Thirty-five years ago director Barry Levinson (Rain Man) adapted Bernard Malamud's 1952 novel into a major motion picture entitled The Natural.  For fans of America's pastime – baseball – the story is a beautiful telling of the game and life from one player's view.  For anyone else, it is a tale of human nature, triumph agains...

After the success of 1989's Batman and Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands) and Michael Keaton's (Spotlight) ability to reboot and reinvigorate the entire franchise, Warner Bros. continued with a second installment in 1992 called Batman Returns. The darker, more sinister vibe that Burton brought to the story appealed to fans and mere moviegoers alike a... Read More

South Park, which as of May of last year was Hulu's most-watched show, debuted in 1997 and has become a cultural phenomenon. The show has consistently pushed the envelope with its dark and sometimes outrageous humor and remains one of Comedy Central's highest-rated shows after all these years. It also produced a successful feature film in 1... Read More

Rebel Wilson has proven herself in comedies before but, perhaps, people wouldn't quite think of her as a first choice in a romance film. However, in Isn't It Romantic, she shows that she can also pull off the popular romantic comedy genre. Now, you can bring this title home with its release on Blu-ray.Natalie (Wilson; the Pitch Perfect seri... Read More

(Joey R Mannon)  5/23/2019 11:01 PM EDT
A heist film that harkens back to MTV's memorable 1990s animated series Liquid Television, what "Ruben Brandt, Collector" lacks in plot, it makes up for in a dizzying array of Picasso-esque characters, larger-than-life landscapes, and fast-paced action. While 90 minutes of oddly-shaped and extremely quirky good guys, villains and any ... Read More

No matter how bad your life is… it could always be worse.  You could be terminally ill or homeless or, in the case of Philip Lacasse Bryan Cranston; Breaking Bad), become a paraplegic who need constant help to get out of bed, eat, and go to the bathroom.  Based on a true story and an adaptation of the 2011 French Film, The Untoucha...
