The glamorous world of the Los Angeles music scene isn't all it's cracked up to be.  Just ask all the celebrities' personal assistants.  They run around ragged always trying to please their incredibly demanding employers.  Meanwhile, they have dreams of their own.  Let's face it… many of them live in the entertainment hub...

Spaceship Earth   Spaceship Earth Theatrical Review

As a Floridian, when one hears the words Spaceship Earth one immediately thinks of the big, round golf ball that sits at the entrance of Epcot Center.  Looming eighteen stories high,  it greets excited visitors to an amusement park full of wonder and innovation with an international flair.  However, in this case, Spaceship Earth refe...

They're colorful, they're bright, they're furry, they love to sing and dance and…they fart glitter.  Yes, that's right, Universal Studios/DreamWorks Animation is once again bringing their beloved Trolls back for a second round.  Poppy (Anna Kendrick; Pitch Perfect), Branch (Justin Timberlake; In Time) and the rest o...

Bloodshot   Bloodshot Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/12/2020 9:42 AM EST
It seems if there is a comic book/graphic novel out in the world, then at some point we will see a big-screen adaptation.  Marvel and DC Comics have had great success in the last ten years turning their superheroes and villains into major box office hits and now Valiant Comics is trying to duplicate the achievements of their counterparts with ...

Downhilll   Downhilll Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  2/13/2020 2:58 PM EST
Question: What do you call a film that's not funny, not deeply dramatic, and feels like a messed-up effort to re-make a good foreign film? I guess you call it "Downhill" and label it a ‘dramedy'. To sum up the "Downhill" situation; the filmmakers took what should have been a dream comedy pairing, in this case, the won... Read More
