Greta   Greta Theatrical Review
(Alyn Darnay)  2/28/2019 2:35 PM EDT
These days we've all been trained not to pick up any suspicious packages we see in public places, especially in New York City, especially on a Subway. What train rider doesn't know that? The stupidity of picking up such an object forms the basis of this film; it also forms the basis of the total stupidity of watching this disappointing and mundane ... Read More

Ralph Breaks The Internet   Ralph Breaks The Internet 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  2/25/2019 9:10 PM EDT
Back in 2012 production started on a little film called Wreck-It Ralph. There was small fanfare at that year's San Diego Comic Con, but not much. All the press really knew is it would be "Roger Rabbit" like but instead of cartoons it would be featuring video game characters and settings that everyone grew up loving. The film, which debute...

American Gods Season 2 Preview   American Gods Television Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  2/25/2019 9:38 AM EDT
War is coming…war between the old and the new.  At least that is what American Gods would have you believe.  After an almost two year hiatus, the hit television series is finally returning to STARZ on March 10, 2019, and fans of the show won't be disappointed.  Building on the premise and introduction of Season One, Season...

Mary Queen of Scots   Mary Queen of Scots 4K Ultra HD Review
(Alyn Darnay)  2/24/2019 5:18 PM EDT
Why does it seem that every producer out there now wants to make an English Period Piece? I guess it's because of the success of the TV series The Crown and others like it. There's nothing wrong with that, there are certainly enough people out there interested in seeing a good period piece.However, in order to be a ‘good' period piece, t... Read More

The Little Mermaid   The Little Mermaid 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  2/24/2019 11:16 AM EDT
"Look at this Stuff. Isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?"…With these now iconic words, Disney animation experienced a resurgence in their films.  Throughout the 1970s and 1980s Disney films weren't as popular as they had been in the past but that all changed in 1989 with the release of The Little Mermai...

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World   How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  2/21/2019 8:32 AM EDT
Almost nine years ago Dreamworks Animations introduced us to Hiccup (Jay Baruchel; Goon), the hapless son of the Chief of Berk, who wanted nothing more than to please his father but lacked the conviction to be a dragon hunter.  One day in the forest he met Toothless, an injured Night Fury dragon, considered to be the last of its kind.  Th...

Overlord   Overlord 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  2/19/2019 12:03 PM EDT
Overlord, which hails from producer JJ Abrams, is not your typical World War II film. While at first, when the film opens up to a scene we have seen many times before - soldiers on a plane waiting to jump to their targets - the story seems normal, however, once the soldiers hit the ground, we quickly learn that this is no routine mission.Led by Ser...

Robin Hood   Robin Hood 4K Ultra HD Review
(Nathan M Rose)  2/19/2019 9:16 AM EDT
Robin Hood. The name invokes different images and different stories depending on who you ask. Either it's the Earl Flynn Robin Hood, the Disney cartoon, the comedy spoof by Mel Brook, The 1991 Kevin Coster melodrama with the best portrayal of the Sheriff of Nottingham ever, or the 2010 Russel Crowe take on the classic tale. Then in 2018, to help br... Read More

A Star Is Born   A Star Is Born 4K Ultra HD Review
(Judith Raymer)  2/18/2019 4:54 PM EDT
When a project lingers in development too long, its ultimate demise seems inevitable.  Along the way, a veritable who's who of directors and leading players are often attached and this was the case of the latest  version of "A Star Is Born."  Ultimately, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle; Hangover; Alias) was ready to make hi...

Can You Ever Forgive Me?   Can You Ever Forgive Me? DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  2/18/2019 3:20 PM EDT
Melissa McCarthy is known for her comedic roles in films.  While having played smaller parts she really stood out as Megan in 2011's Bridesmaids. Since then she has made audiences laugh in hits such as This is 40, Spy and Life of the Party.  This past year she took on a more dramatic role-playing real-life writer Lee Israel in Fox Searchl...
