Mallrats: 2-Disc 25th Anniversary Special Edition   Mallrats Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/16/2020 10:00 AM EST
Kevin Patrick Smith (Clerks) was born and raised fifteen minutes from me in Monmouth County, New Jersey, and is a mere six months older than me (yet abundantly more financially successful).  When his first feature film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, won two awards and later screened at the Cannes International Film Festival, where it c...

The top athletes in almost any sport are revered all over the world.  Their talent, their competitive spirit, their hard work, their strength and agility, and their mindset make them the best and they are celebrated for it.  They are paid handsomely, and they become celebrities.  Their goals are to play as long as possible and win of...

Bill & Ted Face the Music   Bill & Ted Face the Music Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  11/9/2020 5:22 PM EST
In the mid-1980s Comedians Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon started doing a stand-up routine in which they played two, bodacious dudes called Bill & Ted. The stand-up was such a hit that they went on to create a film in 1989 entitled Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, which both kids, teenagers, and teachers alike got behind.The movie immediate...

Antebellum   Antebellum 4K Ultra HD Review

The more things change…the more they stay the same.  There was a time in the United States when African Americans were seen as property instead of human beings.  A time when the northern states and the southern ones disagreed about slave ownership which ultimately led to war.  There are some who still hold these beliefs today,...

"Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot".  So begins the John Milton (Paradise Lost) poem about the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Guy Fawkes, along with a group of fellow soldiers, decided to assassinate King James I by blowing up P...

Paramount Presents: The Haunting   The Haunting Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/21/2020 9:15 AM EST
While Shirley Jackson (The Lottery) may have lacked quantity in her writing, she certainly made up for it in quality.  Regarded as a prolific author, she created images that terrified her readers while conversely drawing them into her made-up worlds.  In 1959 Viking published Jackson's novel, The Haunting of Hill House, which is consi...

Back in the early 2000s, AMC (originally American Movie Classics) aired mostly…you guessed it, old movies. However, by the latter half of the decade, they were experimenting with some original programming.  In January of 2008, they furthered their ambition by airing a new show called Breaking Bad.  It immediately generated "bu...

Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy   Back to the Future 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/19/2020 12:39 PM EST
If you were a teenager in the 1980's you should definitely remember what movie this line is from…" Are you telling me you built a time machine…out of a DeLorean?"  Amazingly, it was thirty-five years ago when the first Back to the Future movie screeched into theaters at 88 miles per hour.  Four years later the ...

The Secret: Dare to Dream   The Secret: Dare to Dream Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/9/2020 2:00 PM EST
 "The Secret".  What is it?  Some would say it's all a bunch of mumbo jumbo while others believe it is almost a religion of some sort.  It centers on the "law of attraction" or the idea of "positive thinking".  Basically, if you think of all the good things you want to have happen in your life,...

The Secret Garden   The Secret Garden Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  10/8/2020 2:40 PM EST
When someone comes across a great story, they often think, "this would make a really good movie", which is why so many novels become major motion pictures.  Many of those stories are literary classics – Sense and Sensibility, Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby, etc. – that lend themselves to the big screen.  Frances Hodgson...
