Bad Times at the El Royale 4K Ultra HD Review

It's been a while since we've been treated to a highly stylized film in the vain of film noir.  During the 1990's we saw quite a bit of that genre but we seemed to have lost sight of it with all the action/superhero films of this millennia.  Bad Times At the El Royale reminds us of why we loved these types of movies and what a beautifully...

Hailing from the mind of Stephen King, Castle Rock is a town used in most of his novels, and now with the resurgence of Stephen King films, Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason took the opportunity - with the blessing of the master of horror himself- Stephen King, to create an Anthology Series entitled Castle Rock, with  a cast of actors from some of ...

Giving the go-ahead to a comedy with Kevin Hart (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) set in a high school, being directed by the proven Malcolm D. Lee, had to have been one of the easiest movie studio decisions of the year.   Neither actor ever really strays too far from their standard material and you generally kn... Read More

Richard Wershe Jr. (newcomer Richie Merritt) was born on July 1969 but never stood a chance at having a normal life.  He lived in Detroit, Michigan with his father, who sold guns illegally, and his drug addict sister.  At fourteen years old he became the youngest ever FBI informant but was abandoned when three years alter he was arrested ...

Being a fan of the Predator series I was excited when a new one was announced and was released in theaters this fall. However,  The Predator just didn't live up to my expectations.  The problem is I can't exactly pinpoint exactly why.  The movie wasn't bad - I was entertained but for some reason, I just didn't like it.  The...

I have a Love-Hate relationship with Eli Roth.I can count the number of movies of his, which I have actually enjoyed, on 2 fingers. On the other hand, I think his enthusiasm and love for, and knowledge of, classic horror, and Genre movies, in general, is really admirable.  Not to mention, he really seems like a genuinely good guy. But back to ... Read More

Actor/ Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) is known for his quirky, offbeat comedies so it's no surprise that he decided to tackle Darcey Bell's dark comedy/thriller A Simple Favor.  Outwardly, It seems like a perfect match as he infuses his personality into every thread of the movie but there is a seriousness that permeates which is some...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/17/2018 4:58 PM EDT
In order to bring us the thriller Venom, Columbia Pictures, Sony, and Marvel worked in conjunction and from the previews, Venom looked like the typical alien type scary movie.   I was very unsure of how it would set itself apart from all the other alien movies but Venom brings out the alien in everyone and is actually a carefully scripted cohe...

Racial profiling is an issue that seems to be plaguing this country more and more in the past few years.  Young, male minorities end up on the wrong side of an argument and are senselessly killed when a person in authority pulls a gun unnecessarily.  We have seen numerous news reports about it happening and several films based on this typ...

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  12/17/2018 10:11 AM EDT
Semper Fidelis – Always Loyal… That is the motto of the United States Marine Corps.  Unless you have served as a Marine, you cannot really understand what that means.  Up until now, our perception of what being a marine is like is what we have seen in the media.  Movies like Full Metal Jacket and Born on The 4th of July ...
