Ma   Ma Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/29/2019 4:02 PM EDT
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...

Godzilla: King of the Monsters   Godzilla: King of the Monsters Theatrical Review
(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

Isn't It Romantic   Isn't It Romantic Blu-ray Review
(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

Aladdin   Aladdin Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/24/2019 8:27 AM EDT
"It's a whole new world"…truer words have never been spoken (or in this case sung).  At the same time, it's a world in which the past is reappearing and becoming reimagined for better or for worse.  This is especially true for movies and the latest in this continuing trend is Disney's Aladdin.  Originally released in...

Ruben Brandt, Collector   Ruben Brandt, Collector DVD Review
(Joey R Mannon)  5/23/2019 11:01 PM EDT
A heist film that harkens back to MTV's memorable 1990s animated series Liquid Television, what "Ruben Brandt, Collector" lacks in plot, it makes up for in a dizzying array of Picasso-esque characters, larger-than-life landscapes, and fast-paced action. While 90 minutes of oddly-shaped and extremely quirky good guys, villains and any ... Read More

The Upside   The Upside Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/23/2019 10:28 PM EDT
No matter how bad your life is… it could always be worse.  You could be terminally ill or homeless or, in the case of Philip Lacasse Bryan Cranston; Breaking Bad), become a paraplegic who need constant help to get out of bed, eat, and go to the bathroom.  Based on a true story and an adaptation of the 2011 French Film, The Untoucha...

Crank   Crank 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  5/20/2019 9:36 PM EDT
Jason Statham (The Meg) is one of the most popular action movie stars around. After starting his career with a few film roles working for director Guy Ritchie (Aladdin), he landed the lead in Transporter, which was truly his breakout film. He proved that he was able to hold an audience's attention and was believable with his action stunts. Afte... Read More

13 Reasons Why: Season Two   13 Reasons Why DVD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/20/2019 11:59 AM EDT
Author Jay Asher wrote a novel in 2007 called Th1rteen R3asons Why which has become both praised and criticized across the country.  Some schools banned it while others made it required reading and used it in its teaching curriculum. Last year Netflix created a drama series based on the book which has been met with critical acclaim for its wri... Read More
