Love Story   Love Story Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/5/2021 4:58 PM EDT
Fifty years ago, a writer named Erich Segal (Yellow Submarine) penned a screenplay and sold it to Paramount Pictures.  While the film was in production, Paramount decided Segal should release it as a novel first, in order to garner interest in the upcoming movie.  The novel did exactly what Paramount had hoped it would do…it became...

The Mayan Civilization was one culture that carefully and closely studied astronomy, recording and detailing the ever-changing night sky.  Through these observations, the Mayan people created several complex calendars.  For centuries after their creation, scholars have studied and dissected these calendars, learning about astrology and ho...

Let Him Go   Let Him Go Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  2/2/2021 8:43 AM EDT
When writer/director Thomas Bezucha (The Family Stone) read Larry Watson's novel entitled, Let Him Go, he knew he wanted to make it into a movie.  With rich, complex characters and a gut-wrenching story, Bezucha brought his expertise to this neo-western, thriller and guided an all-star cast through a physical and emotional journey.  Thoug...

Snowpiercer   Snowpiercer Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/25/2021 9:10 AM EDT
Climate change – it's a huge debate between scientists and (mostly) religious groups.  But what if it really is true?  What if the earth is warming so much that it will become uninhabitable?  If it could be reversed, would you want it to be done?  What if it all goes horribly wrong bringing about another ice age destined t...

The Craft: Legacy   The Craft: Legacy Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  1/10/2021 10:28 PM EDT
Witchcraft…everyone has their own ideas of what that word means.  Officially it is described as "the practice of magic, especially black magic; the use of spells".  Some truly believe in the power of witchcraft while others think it is all make believe.  Some practice the artform and see it much like an organized rel...

Tenet   Tenet 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  12/14/2020 10:16 PM EDT
If you look up the definition of the word tenet you will find the following: a principle, belief, or doctrine generally held to be true especially one held in common by members of an organization, movement, or profession.   If you ask director Christopher Nolan (Inception) his definition of Tenet, he will probably tell you it is a movie t...

Paramount Presents: Trading Places   Trading Places Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  12/9/2020 6:40 PM EDT
In 1983 Eddie Murphy was in his third year as a regular on Saturday Night Live.  While on the show he created some memorable characters such as Adult Buckwheat, Sarcastic Gumby, and Mr. Robinson (a parody of Mr. Rogers). The year prior, he also made his feature film debut co-starring with Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides) in 48 Hours.  The... Read More

Collateral   Collateral 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  12/7/2020 9:50 PM EDT
From 1981 to 2001, Michael Mann (Manhunter) directed only seven feature films.  In that same time frame, Tom Cruise (Top Gun) more than tripled that number of films, and Jaime Foxx (Ray) had a total of eleven with his Oscar-winning performance coming later that year as the lead in Ray.  Jada Pinkett Smith (Scream 2, as Jada Pinkett) had a...

Total Recall 30th Anniversary Edition   Total Recall 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  12/7/2020 8:39 PM EDT
In the 1970s there was a screenplay floating around based on a story by Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner) about a man who experiences a vivid dream/or wakes up from one. The film made its way around all the studios and was stuck in development hell for a while, until one studio, Carolco, a director's studio, got a hold of the script and thought it woul... Read More

(Sean McCloskey)  12/7/2020 12:22 PM EDT
This December is the 30th Anniversary of The Godfather Part III's original release in theaters.  In celebration of the milestone, legendary director Francis Ford Coppola spent months working on a new edit of the film now titled, The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. The film is clearly the weakest of the trilogy but ...
