Mortal Kombat   Mortal Kombat Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  4/23/2021 7:27 AM EDT
It has been almost thirty years since Midway Games introduced Mortal Kombat to the world of video games, first as an arcade game, then as a personal home video game (currently on its 11th version), and eventually branching out to comic books, animated shows, and live-action feature films.  The first feature film, premiering in 1995, is not onl...

The Mitchells vs. The Machines   The Mitchells vs. The Machines Streaming Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  4/21/2021 9:07 AM EDT
Imagine what would happen if one of the Terminator movies was reimagined into a computer-animated comedy.  It would be cheesy, mildly funny, filled with artificial intelligence and some violence disguised behind some cool music and animation.  Columbia Pictures decided to make this movie and this week it debuts in select theaters before s...

Voyagers   Voyagers Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  4/8/2021 6:30 PM EDT
If one wanted to try and modernize a classic novel that has been read and dissected by high school English classes all over the country, what book should it be and how would one go about updating it for movie theater audiences? Enter Voyagers…essentially, Lord of the Flies in space, with teens of both sexes sailing along through the darkness... Read More

Paramount Presents: The Greatest Show on Earth   The Greatest Show on Earth Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  4/1/2021 10:11 PM EDT
I'm not sure about younger generations, but when someone says the words, "The Greatest Show on Earth" those of a certain age automatically think of Ringling Bros.-Barnum & Bailey Circus.  The traveling show, which was created in 1919 after the merger of two smaller traveling circuses, boasted everything from trapeze artists and c...

The Ten Commandments   The Ten Commandments 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/29/2021 6:00 PM EDT
How often does a filmmaker get to completely remake one of their films thirty-three years after the original version came out?  The answer is never.  If a remake is planned, it generally includes a new, updated version of the original film with a different director and soundtrack (to utilize more modern songs) in hopes of appealing to you...

The Undoing   The Undoing Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/29/2021 2:53 PM EDT
How well do we really know the people who are closest to us?  What deep, dark secrets dwell inside locked doors somewhere in the back recesses of a person's mind?  What if you discovered one of your parents was gay? Or if one of your siblings had a drinking problem? Or what if your husband, that you had known for seventeen years was r... Read More

Godzilla vs Kong   Godzilla vs Kong Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/29/2021 12:00 PM EDT
It is the age-old battle… predator vs. prey, man vs. beast, lizard vs. ape, or more precisely Godzilla vs. Kong.  In the world of filmdom, the latter predates the former by twenty-one years.  However, the debate as to which creature would win in a fight has raged on three times along.  Of course, this month's feature film ...

Monster Hunter   Monster Hunter 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/29/2021 8:55 AM EDT
Could someone please explain to me the desire to take every video game and make it into a movie (generally a whole franchise)?  How about explaining Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat) and Milla Jovovich's (Kuffs) obsession with being the people behind these types of movies?  I get it…The Resident Evil films were well-received (... Read More

Nobody   Nobody Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  3/25/2021 4:24 PM EDT
This film is like turning over a rock, you never know what's underneath until it's seen. That's the great joy in this film; only you can probably guess what's coming from the first scene when a battered Bob Odenkirk is sitting in an interrogation room feeding a stray cat. It's a beautifully constructed sequence that leaves the possibilities wide op... Read More

News of The World   News of  The World 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  3/25/2021 1:17 PM EDT
In 2016 author Paulette Jiles (Lighthouse Island) published a western-themed novel called News of the World. The book became a finalist for the National Book Award for fiction.  Shortly after a bidding war ensued, with Fox 2000 Pictures obtaining the movie rights in 2017.  However, after Disney acquired Fox, the film was mo...
