Now You See Me 2   Now You See Me 2 Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  6/9/2016 9:33 AM EST
Who doesn't love magic?  The sleight of hand. The trick of the eye. The elaborate showmanship meant to distract the unsuspecting, naïve spectator.  It's fantasy and theatrics that has people the world over delighting in the grandeur of it all.There have been any number of movies where magic serves as the backdrop to drama and suspens...

Me Before You   Me Before You Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  6/2/2016 2:54 PM EST
There is always room for a good love story in film today, and many studios bank on romantic comedies to get female audiences in the seats.  What's not to like about a good looking, emotionally damaged leading man, a pretty young lady who "heals" him and a few laughs thrown in?  Me Before You isn't that kind of romantic movie.&nb...

Alice Through the Looking Glass   Alice Through the Looking Glass Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  5/26/2016 5:06 PM EST
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is a timeless classic that has been adapted into movies, both animated and live action, many times.   Now, Disney has taken the story a step further by continuing Alice's adventures in their newest release, Alice Through the Looking Glass.  In this whimsical story through a colo...

Weiner   Weiner Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  5/25/2016 3:27 PM EST
Anthony Weiner has passion. It was evident when he was a member of the House of Representatives from New York.  It was evident when he ran for Mayor of New York City in 2013 and it was evident when he was caught in a sexting scandal... not once, but twice.  Weiner is vocal and stubborn and, at times, volatile.It's a wonder why he woul...

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising   Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  5/19/2016 5:17 PM EST
Crude, rude, obnoxious and offensive are all accurate adjectives to describe Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.  As if the first film wasn't awful, yet funny enough, the second continues in the same vein of sophomoric frat humor.  While not quite as good as the first one, the sequel will remind viewers of all of the things they liked about...

The Nice Guys   The Nice Guys Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  5/19/2016 2:17 PM EST
Writer/Director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) is known for his spy/police/private investigator stories with two males as the lead characters.  His writing is often funny, wry and, at times, sophomoric.  Luckily, his latest work, The Nice Guys, serves up more of this same formula that has worked so well for him in the past.Holland Marc...

Money Monster   Money Monster Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  5/12/2016 11:02 AM EST
I was a little apprehensive about tackling this one... having George Clooney and Julia Roberts in the same flick.  There are exceptions, but the good majority of their films are vehicles for box office draws.  Even their serious work can come off as a polished Hollywood tale wrapped with that film gift bow (read: guaranteed money maker).&...

Captain America: Civil War   Captain America: Civil War Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  5/5/2016 11:08 AM EST
Everyone is talking about it… #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan.  Where do you fall on the spectrum, or do you not even care?  If you don't, you should, as Captain America: Civil War seems to be one of 2016's blockbusters. Garnering praise aplenty, movie goers will flock to the theaters to see it at least once in the next month and they won... Read More

The Huntsman: Winter's War   The Huntsman: Winter's War Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/21/2016 1:32 PM EST
Quick question… if The Huntsman: Winter's War was never made, would we really be missing anything?  The short answer is probably not.  While there were some good things about the film, there were far more negatives than positives, starting with the question "why?"The prequel/sequel gives us the back-story of who the hunts...

Criminial   Criminial Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/14/2016 2:57 PM EST
If you look up the word criminal in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, you will find an adjective meaning "involving illegal activity: morally wrong".  From this, one would ascertain a movie with the word as its title would involve either of the above mentioned descriptions, which it does.  However, it's difficult to figure out whi...
