Tomorrow Man Theatrical Review
Tomorrow Man   Tomorrow Man Theatrical Review
(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

What can you say about a movie that tries to totally capture the formative years of a ROCK GOD?A film that covers his childhood (I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues), his partnership (Daniel), his rise to fame (Honky Cat), his fame (Pinball Wizard), his relationships (Don't Go Breakin' My Heart), his addictions (Crocodile Rock), h...

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 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

Aladdin Theatrical Review
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...

Do you believe in destiny or fate or love at first sight?  Many romantics say they do but how many really feel that spark just from one glance?  Are you more of a realistic, practical, scientific person who needs proof before you can accept things as fact?  What if two people at opposite ends of the "love" spectrum meet?&nb...

(Alyn Darnay)  5/15/2019 10:19 AM EDT
Let's start by saying; if you're a John Wick fan, you won't be disappointed by this latest installment of the franchise. The same goes for Keanu Reeves fans, Halle Berry fans, Action Movie fans, and just plain well-made Pop Movie fans.Right from the very first film, you could tell this opus was always meant to be a franchise; the type of movie seri...

Tolkien Theatrical Review

"In a hole in the ground"…J.R.R. Tolkien wrote, and with those immortal words began the creation of a place known as Middle Earth, a mythological land where Hobbits dwell. "The Hobbit" was published in 1937 and received tremendous critical acclaim. It has been read, taught, admired, loved, and copied ever since.It spawned... Read More

Poms Theatrical Review
Poms   Poms Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  5/9/2019 9:04 AM EDT
I don't know what this film about senior citizens in a retirement community is trying to be, and I don't think it knows either. Is it a comedy, a drama, a tale of female bonding through sports, or is it just about the cattiness of women? Maybe it's trying to be all those things at once, and perhaps that's why it doesn't work for me. Trying to be to... Read More

POKÉMON Detective Pikachu Theatrical Review
POKÉMON Detective Pikachu   POKÉMON Detective Pikachu Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/8/2019 2:30 PM EDT
If you are a child of the '90s or are the parent of one then you are surely aware of what Pokemon are.  These fictional creatures live in the Pokemon Universe (of course) and have human trainers who catch them and prepare them to battle each other for sport.   Each one has unique powers that they can use when fighting.  This concept ...
