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...

Mean Girls   Mean Girls Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/3/2019 9:32 AM EDT
Fifteen years ago Lindsay Lohan was an up and coming young actress in Hollywood and was making a name for herself in movies like The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday remakes.   Then in 2004, she was offered the chance to play Cady Heron in the blockbuster hit, Mean Girls. The teen dramedy about high school cliques and popular kids versus nerds ex... Read More

Pan's Labyrinth   Pan's Labyrinth 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/1/2019 9:49 AM EDT
Academy award winner Guillermo del Toro has a history of bringing beautiful and disturbing stories to life on the big screen.  From 2004's Hellboy to 2017's The Shape of Water, his imagination takes us to places we almost might not want to go.  This is true as well for his 2006 movie Pan's Labyrinth.  The fairy tale fantasy combines ...

Gremlins   Gremlins 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/30/2019 11:53 AM EDT
The 1980s were a great time to grow up.  There were plenty of movies that one could take their kids to but that everyone of any age could enjoy.  E.T. : The Extra-Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Back to the Future and Ghostbusters to name a few.  In 1984 Warner Bros. brought a different kind of creature to the screen in the Chr...

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...

Child's Play   Child's Play Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  9/26/2019 3:47 PM EDT
When the original Child's Play came out in 1988 it was a smash hit spawning over six sequels and a new horror icon that would be forever in moviegoers heads. Fast forward to 2019 and a new take on the story has come out, and it is the best remake/reimagine made in a very long time.Based on the classic lore of Robert The Doll, the orig... Read More

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 ...

In the 1970's Richard Roundtree (Speed Racer) played streetwise private investigator, John Shaft.   After three feature films and a television series, Shaft was done.  In 2000, Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) brought a sequel to theaters in the movie called Shaft.  He played John Shaft's son, also named John Shaft and he fol... Read More

Yesterday   Yesterday 4K Ultra HD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  9/23/2019 8:28 PM EDT
Everyone knows who The Beatles are. Young or old, you have heard a song of theirs. They are an iconic part of not only music history but a huge part of cultural history. Again, ICONIC. But what if we lived in a world where they didn't exist? What if you were the only person who knew that this prolific band ever existed? Would you use this knowl... Read More
