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

A film called Gloria premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.  Co-written and directed by Sebastian Lelio, the movie went on to become an Oscar Nominee for Best Foreign Language film and earned praise for both Lelio and leading actress, Paulina Garcia (The Desert Bride).  The film was redone in English in 2019 (titled Gl...

Batman first appeared in DC Comics 80 years ago.  Over the years he has been referred to as the Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader and even, the World's Greatest Detective. In 1966 he first appeared on television portrayed by Adam West and ran for three seasons. There were also two movies that were made in the 1940s.  Then in 1989 Tim Burton... Read More

(Alyn Darnay)  5/31/2019 11:36 AM EDT
Once upon a time I actually thought great actors and great acting could make any film work. Then, I grew up and figured out that only a great story can make a film great, no matter how good the actors in it may be. Without a compelling script that captures the audience from the start and continues to hold them through to the end, all you're left wi... Read More

Kids can be cruel.  The concept is not new and high school bullying can leave scars that last a lifetime.  For many, it builds character and changes who they are as a person.  It makes them emotionally stronger, tougher and hopefully less cruel towards others themselves.  Most grow up to be fairly well-adjusted adults but someti...

(Alyn Darnay)  5/29/2019 2:58 PM EDT
The very first "Godzilla, King of the Monsters" movie I ever saw was the 1956 version shot on film in Black & White, and it starred of all people, Raymond Burr (Perry Mason). I watched it when I was about 7 years old on late night television decades after it was made and thought that a 400-foot tall dinosaur, awoken from undersea hibe... Read More

South Park: The Complete Twenty-Second Season   South Park Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  5/29/2019 12:09 PM EDT
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

(Maureen Buccellato)  5/27/2019 2:24 PM EDT
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
