The 1980s were a great time to grow up.  There were plenty of movies that one could take their kids to but that everyone of any age could enjoy.  E.T. : The Extra-Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Back to the Future and Ghostbusters to name a few.  In 1984 Warner Bros. brought a different kind of creature to the screen in the Chr...

(Alyn Darnay)  9/27/2019 10:21 AM EST
I went to see the new biopic "Judy" fully expecting to watch Renee Zellweger in performance, but she never showed up. That was ok though, because Judy Garland was there on the screen filling in for her, and was she ever good.Playing a real-life person is the hardest challenge facing any actor, especially if that person is well known and b...

(Nathan M Rose)  9/26/2019 3:47 PM EST
When the original Child's Play came out in 1988 it was a smash hit spawning over six sequels and a new horror icon that would be forever in moviegoers heads. Fast forward to 2019 and a new take on the story has come out, and it is the best remake/reimagine made in a very long time.Based on the classic lore of Robert The Doll, the orig... Read More

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/26/2019 9:50 AM EST
Throughout history, there have been rumors of mythical creatures roaming the forests, seas, and mountains of the world.  From the Loch Ness Monster to Chupacabra and Sasquatch/Bigfoot to its colder weather cousin The Abominable Snowman/Yeti tales have been told as people claim to have seen them.  Generally, those people are ridiculed and ...

In the 1970's Richard Roundtree (Speed Racer) played streetwise private investigator, John Shaft.   After three feature films and a television series, Shaft was done.  In 2000, Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) brought a sequel to theaters in the movie called Shaft.  He played John Shaft's son, also named John Shaft and he fol... Read More

Everyone knows who The Beatles are. Young or old, you have heard a song of theirs. They are an iconic part of not only music history but a huge part of cultural history. Again, ICONIC. But what if we lived in a world where they didn't exist? What if you were the only person who knew that this prolific band ever existed? Would you use this knowl... Read More

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  9/20/2019 3:48 PM EST
Director Luc Besson (Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element) is known for making movies that combined drama with some action sequences.  He also tends to highlight strong female characters, whether it is a young girl following a hitman or a woman who is running out of time.  His latest effort, Anna, once again encompasses these element...

Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
Downton Abbey   Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  9/19/2019 5:11 PM EST
"Downton Abbey" is sumptuous and stylish in a way the touches your heart and moves your soul. It's rather like a cherished overcoat you snuggle into in winter that's at once familiar, comfortable and warm. Of all the British period pieces about upper class families living in the 1920's that I've seen over the years, this one is by far the... Read More
