Poms   Poms Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  5/9/2019 9:04 AM EST
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... Read More

POKÉMON Detective Pikachu   POKÉMON Detective Pikachu Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/8/2019 2:30 PM EST
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 ...

UglyDolls   UglyDolls Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/2/2019 1:55 PM EST
In February 2001 Uglydoll made its way to toy store shelves and was awarded the specialty toy of the year.  The concept began because of a long distance relationship between David Horvath and his future wife Sun-Min Kim. The brand became very popular and has now spawned not only an animated feature film but a television series as well.  S... Read More

Long Shot   Long Shot Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/1/2019 5:14 PM EST
Google the definition of a long shot and this is what you will get - a venture or guess that has only the slightest chance of succeeding or being accurate.  That idea can pertain to almost anything from a job prospect to asking someone out on a date to winning the lottery.  In the case of the new movie from Lionsgate, Long Shot could incl...

Avengers: Endgame   Avengers: Endgame Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/23/2019 7:00 PM EST
Yes, people die…just like in real life.  Yes, some superheroes come back to continue on the legacy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and yes, some don't.  It's been eleven years and twenty-one movies in the making and now we get to watch as the Avengers battle Thanos for control of the galaxy.  It's easy to say that Avengers: E...

Disneynature Penguins   Disneynature Penguins Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  4/15/2019 10:04 AM EST
Everyone knows about penguins.  Almost all of us have seen them in a zoo, a cartoon, or in a film, but how much do we really know other than the fact that they waddle around and are cute?  What do we really understand about their lives and mating rituals?  Sure we may have seen documentaries about them before but nothing like this on...

Missing Link   Missing Link Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/11/2019 10:15 AM EST
Laika Studio was founded in 2005 and for the past ten years they have been thrilling audiences with their stop motion animation feature film.  With their first feature, Coraline, they received an academy award nomination and doubled their sixty million dollar budget. ParaNorman, their second movie, also garnered an Oscar nomination and critica... Read More

The Public   The Public Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  4/5/2019 4:28 PM EST
In spite of a prolific career making films, many of us will forever behold Emilio Estevez (The Way; Bobby; The Breakfast Club; The Mighty Ducks) holed up in a library as part of a motley crew of (seemingly) mismatched misfits.  Now, some thirty-odd years later, we get to return to the library in a somewhat grown-up version of The Breakfast Clu...

Hotel Mumbai   Hotel Mumbai Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  3/28/2019 2:33 PM EST
I have always found films about India to be fascinating. Probably because India is a place of mystery, magic, philosophy, and hidden secrets. A place so big and filled with so many people that you get the feeling that anything could happen at any moment; and it did in the most terrifying way in 2008. That's when the members of the "Lashkar-e-T... Read More

Dumbo   Dumbo Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  3/27/2019 8:46 AM EST
In the past five years, The Walt Disney Studio has been reworking their animated classics and turned them into live action features.  While many (myself included) were skeptical at first, Disney has managed to create some wonderful films that the whole family can enjoy, whether seeing it for the first time or reminiscing about the stories...
