Angel Has Fallen   Angel Has Fallen 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/26/2019 9:04 AM EDT
In 2013 audiences were first introduced to Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler; The Phantom of the Opera) when he protected the White House and the President of the United States in Olympus Has Fallen.  Three years later he returned to the character once again in the sequel, London Has Fallen.  This year the third installment...

Knives Out   Knives Out Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/20/2019 9:07 AM EDT
Who doesn't love a good whodunnit?  Agatha Christie and her mystery novels were popular for years.  Angela Lansbury got a second wind in her career when she played Jessica Fletcher on the popular television series Murder She Wrote, which lasted 12 seasons.  Murder on the Orient Express is a classic and even Saturday Morning carto...

Blinded by the Light   Blinded by the Light Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/19/2019 8:57 AM EDT
I read a quote somewhere…"Music is heard with the ears, understood with the heart" and I thought how true that statement was.  There are so many styles of music worldwide but we don't always need to understand the language the song is sung in to sense that the lyrics are speaking to us personally. From Country to Rap to Heavy ... Read More

Robocop   Robocop Blu-ray Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  11/18/2019 5:07 PM EDT
In 1987 I was not ready for RoboCop. By then I had already experienced more than my share of Horror, Sci-Fi and Action films. Sitting in that darkened theater with my friends, watching the hyper-violent, and frenetically paced movie, I was struck by how it had so much more to say than just 'look at how bloody I am!'  RoboCop was making...

Frozen II   Frozen II Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/14/2019 5:20 PM EDT
Like it or not, Disney is the undisputed king of feature-length animated movies.  From the classics – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella- and the 1990's revitalization– The Little Mermaid and Aladdin - to today's modern movies – Moana and Ralph Breaks the Internet- Disney knows how to make a wonderful chil...

Ford v Ferrari   Ford v Ferrari Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/13/2019 1:27 PM EDT
The French seem to have a knack for creating long-standing endurance races.  Since 1903 the 21 day Tour de France has brought cycling teams from all over the world to compete and since 1923 the 24 hours of Le Mans has had car manufacturers and drivers vying for a win. In 1964 Ford motor company threw its hat into the ring trying to increase it... Read More

Good Boys   Good Boys Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/12/2019 7:49 PM EDT
Middle school…the hormones, the bullying, the embarrassing situations that lurk behind every corner.  Walking that fine line between childhood and young adult can be difficult to navigate, which is why there have been numerous films highlighting the trials and tribulations of that tumultuous time in one's life.  Of course, none...

The Peanut Butter Falcon   The Peanut Butter Falcon Blu-ray Review
(Judith Raymer)  11/11/2019 9:07 PM EDT
Is awards season here yet?  I know. I know. It's not enough that we welcome Thanksgiving and Christmas along with Halloween.  Now, I'm rushing us to nominations. The Peanut Butter Falcon, however, has some strong award contending performances.  Where to even begin…Touted as "a modern Mark Twain style adventure tale...a tw... Read More

Playing With Fire   Playing With Fire Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/7/2019 4:35 PM EDT
The fall season… the nights get cooler, the leaves change color, retail stores start gearing up for the holiday shopping frenzy and movie theaters start getting a variety of films to play.  Of course, there are the Oscar-worthy set plus the action films intent on getting teenage boys out of the house and finally the family friend v...

Midway   Midway Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  11/7/2019 9:23 AM EDT
After a dearth of good films to watch, here comes "MIDWAY", a big screen WWII action adventure based upon real life events that had me wanting more when it was over. Most interestingly this is not a big budget studio film, the fact is no studio wanted to back it, saving their money I guess, for more Super Hero reboots. So this film i... Read More
