Playing With Fire   Playing With Fire Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/7/2019 4:35 PM EST
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   Midway Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  11/7/2019 9:23 AM EST
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

The Art of Racing in the Rain   The Art of Racing in the Rain Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/6/2019 11:19 AM EST
In 2008 author Garth Stein's third novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, was published and sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for 156 weeks. In 2009 Universal Pictures bought the rights and planned for Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy) to play the main character of Enzo but the movie never had a director attached and was never ma...

Universal Soldier   Universal Soldier 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/4/2019 9:31 PM EST
The 1980s and early 1990s saw a growth in action films in the United States; a trend that seems to have continued well into recent years.  Stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard) were becoming household names.  Car chases, gunfights, and hand to hand combat were the ...

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark   Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  11/4/2019 5:13 PM EST
PG-13 horror movies, always conjure up images of milquetoast monsters, bloodless kill- scenes, and plots which cater to an, at best, immature audience. I know this seems like a seriously gross generalization, and perhaps it is a tad judgmental, but I have been to too many of them to think otherwise. Or have I! This is not the case with Scary S...

Terminator: Dark Fate   Terminator: Dark Fate Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  10/30/2019 4:42 PM EST
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

Doctor Sleep   Doctor Sleep Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/30/2019 12:00 PM EST
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...

Red Heat   Red Heat 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/29/2019 11:55 PM EST
In the 1980s the United States was engrossed in a couple of wars – The Cold War and the War on Drugs.  Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator) was also one of the biggest action stars in movies.  It was only natural to combine those two ideas to make a film starring "Arnie"  and that is exactly what TriStar Pictures did in...

An American Werewolf in London   An American Werewolf in London Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  10/28/2019 11:37 PM EST
John Landis (Coming to America, Michael Jackson's Thriller) has created many, what most people would term, "classic" films. Many of them, like Trading Places, or The Blues Brothers, to name a few, were comedies but one, in particular, has stuck with Horror film lovers and for good reason. An American Werewolf in London is high on the...
