Clueless   Clueless Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  7/20/2020 5:55 AM EST
I'm sure when Jane Austen wrote Emma over 200 years ago, she never imagined the main character would utter the words, "As if" in order to show her disdain for an idea or a person.  However, when a modern-day version of the story was released in theaters back in 1995, that is exactly what the main character, Cher (Alicia Silversto...

Oh my love, my darling, I've hungered for your touch…If you are over the age of forty, chances are you associate those lyrics with one particular scene in a 1990 film called Ghost.  The love scene between Sam (Patrick Swayze; Dirty Dancing) and his wife Molly (Demi Moore; G.I.

Here's thought maybe Hollywood should try… take a critically acclaimed, graphic novel and turn it into a major motion picture.  Oh wait, they have done that already, time and time again. So, what makes Netflix think it would be a good idea to bring The Old Guard to their streaming service?  Are they just hopping on the bandwago... Read More
