(Leonard Buccellato)  8/20/2019 10:18 AM EDT
​On October 31st, 2010, The Walking Dead premiered on AMC and the world of horror on TV was permanently changed. Say what you want about the trajectory of this show, there is no denying the impact it has had on mainstream television.I became a fan of zombie-horror movies when I was a kid, and my mom, who is a horror fan herself, recited to me, the ...

Tolkien   Tolkien Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  8/12/2019 9:27 PM EDT
Imagine what literature would have been like if J.R.R. Tolkien had had a different childhood?  Imagine what if the creative mind that was his had not had the experiences he was exposed to in his early life?  Would we have gotten Middle Earth? Arda? Made up languages?  Luckily, we will never have to find out as the influences that sha... Read More

Avengers: Endgame   Avengers: Endgame 4K Ultra HD Review
(Maureen Buccellato)  8/12/2019 3:29 PM EDT
The highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of 21 films over the course of 11 years. It all began in 2008 with Iron Man, launching Robert Downey, Jr. back into superstardom. He was not only believable as Tony Stark, but he WAS Tony Stark.  Once again, we were treated to the talent that Downey, Jr. possesses and t... Read More

The Peanut Butter Falcon   The Peanut Butter Falcon Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  8/12/2019 9:34 AM EDT
Every once and awhile a small film comes along that unexpectedly packs a punch to the heart and unarms you with its charm. This film is like that. It's a walking, talking, a riff on a modern Mark Twain style adventure tale, that adds so many more layers to what's expected, you'll find yourself moved emotionally by its evolving storyline...

The Kitchen   The Kitchen Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  8/8/2019 9:54 AM EDT
In 1993 DC Comics opened an offshoot branch called Vertigo.  It was used to publish the more graphic stories that couldn't be published under the Comics Code Authority.  It allowed DC Comics to offer readers more graphic violence, nudity, drug use, and profanity.  One of these stories revolved around mob wives and was called The Kitc...

The Art of Racing in the Rain   The Art of Racing in the Rain Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  8/6/2019 4:54 PM EDT
FACT: Of all the animal species in the world, the one we humans are closest to and have formed the most lasting relationship with is the dog. It's a relationship that started over 100,000 years ago, just about as long as we've trod this earth, and may actually be responsible for our survival as a species. FACT: It's known that when humans pet ...

The Curse of La Llorona   The Curse of La Llorona Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  8/5/2019 9:48 PM EDT
Every culture has its folklore and tall tales.  Some are sweet and build on traditions that bring a community together while others are bedtime stories.  Still, others are scary and used to keep children on their best behavior.  One of the latter is the Mexican story known as La Llorona or the weeping woman.  For centuries child...

Breakthrough   Breakthrough 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  8/5/2019 1:19 PM EDT
Do you believe in miracles?  What about the power of prayer?  Every year people defy the odds medically and astound doctors by recovering from seemingly fatal injuries or illnesses.  One such story was made into a book in 2017, The Impossible, and was Joyce Smith's retelling of her journey with her religion and how it helped her thro...

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw   Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw Theatrical Review

In 2001 we were introduced to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel, xXx), Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker, Running Scared) and a host of other colorful characters in Universal Pictures' The Fast and The Furious.  The movie centered around the idea of family and what that means surrounded by a backdrop of fast cars.  Since then there have been seven ot...
