Hardball   Hardball Blu-ray Review
(Allison Rose)  9/21/2021 8:45 AM EST
The late 1990's/early 2000s were good for Keanu Reeves.  The Matrix was a box office hit spawning two sequels with a third one heading to theaters later this year.  He probably could have had his choice of projects as he had previously displayed his versatility in roles such as a goofy teenager In the Bill & Ted series of films to a s...

Illegal immigration is a highly debated topic in this country.  Some people believe we should welcome these immigrants who generally come to the United States to flee dangerous countries while others feel they should be sent back to where they came from.  However, there are a few problems with making any immigrants leave.  First, the...

Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker were televangelists who amassed a following of millions of followers at the height of their popularity.  Then, in 1987, their reign over religious television came to an end with the appropriation of funds and sexual scandals.  An investigation into the PTL (Praise the Lord) Club revealed two sets of books were ke...

Hypothetically, if you were running from a hired assassin trying to kill you, what is the first thing you would think of doing? For con-man Theodore "Teddy" Murretto (Frank Grillo; The Purge: Anarchy), he finds an opportunity and takes it.  In this case, he sucker punches a police officer and gets himself arrested.  Co-written a...

The Shawshank Redemption   The Shawshank Redemption 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Rose)  9/14/2021 7:04 PM EST
When one hears the name Stephen King, the first thought is horror-themed novels turned into blockbuster movies, but some may not know that he has written other stories without that scary, supernatural slant.  A perfect example of this is his 1982 novella called Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.  Twelve years after it was publish...

Star Trek: The Original 4 Movies Collection   Star Trek: The Motion Picture 4K Ultra HD Review

In 1966 NBC aired a new science fiction series created by Gene Roddenberry called Star Trek.  Originally, it wasn't very well received and was canceled after three seasons due to low Nielsen ratings.  Several years later it became a hit in syndication and eventually spawned eight television series, thirteen movies, books, games, and toys....

Cinderella   Cinderella Theatrical Review
(Allison Rose)  9/3/2021 4:26 PM EST
It doesn't matter how old or how young you are.  It doesn't matter the color of your skin, your gender, or your religion. Everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE, knows the story of Cinderella.  The 1950 Disney classic animated movie had the sweet, beautiful young woman, a handsome prince, and an evil stepmother and stepsisters.  There w...

Family – love them or hate them, one thing is certain…you're stuck with them.  Of course, I'm speaking metaphorically but what if you really were stuck with them?  Would you all be able to survive together in a small space without wanting to kill each other?  For some families, the answer is yes while for others there se...
