Aladdin Theatrical Review

"It's a whole new world"…truer words have never been spoken (or in this case sung).  At the same time, it's a world in which the past is reappearing and becoming reimagined for better or for worse.  This is especially true for movies and the latest in this continuing trend is Disney's Aladdin.  Originally released in...

No matter how bad your life is… it could always be worse.  You could be terminally ill or homeless or, in the case of Philip Lacasse Bryan Cranston; Breaking Bad), become a paraplegic who need constant help to get out of bed, eat, and go to the bathroom.  Based on a true story and an adaptation of the 2011 French Film, The Untoucha...

Author Jay Asher wrote a novel in 2007 called Th1rteen R3asons Why which has become both praised and criticized across the country.  Some schools banned it while others made it required reading and used it in its teaching curriculum. Last year Netflix created a drama series based on the book which has been met with critical acclaim for its wri... Read More

Do you believe in destiny or fate or love at first sight?  Many romantics say they do but how many really feel that spark just from one glance?  Are you more of a realistic, practical, scientific person who needs proof before you can accept things as fact?  What if two people at opposite ends of the "love" spectrum meet?&nb...

If you are a child of the '90s or are the parent of one then you are surely aware of what Pokemon are.  These fictional creatures live in the Pokemon Universe (of course) and have human trainers who catch them and prepare them to battle each other for sport.   Each one has unique powers that they can use when fighting.  This concept ...

Lego Toys- The building blocks of our childhood. Lego Toys - The nightmare of every barefoot parent as they wander around the house in the dark late at night.  Lego Toys- those interlocking, plastic pieces that clicked and snapped into place and fueled one's imagination.  Remember the hours of enjoyment spent building people and things?&n...

In 1992 United Nations forces were attacked in Somalia while trying to deliver food to the starving people.  Civil war and underhanded tactics by those in power had left that country in a state of desperation.  By 1993 Mohamed Farrah Aidid had a great influence over a number of citizens and commanded an army of insurgents who went around ...

UglyDolls Theatrical Review
UglyDolls   UglyDolls Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/2/2019 1:55 PM EDT
In February 2001 Uglydoll made its way to toy store shelves and was awarded the specialty toy of the year.  The concept began because of a long distance relationship between David Horvath and his future wife Sun-Min Kim. The brand became very popular and has now spawned not only an animated feature film but a television series as well.  S... Read More

Long Shot Theatrical Review

(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/1/2019 5:14 PM EDT
Google the definition of a long shot and this is what you will get - a venture or guess that has only the slightest chance of succeeding or being accurate.  That idea can pertain to almost anything from a job prospect to asking someone out on a date to winning the lottery.  In the case of the new movie from Lionsgate, Long Shot could incl...

Avengers: Endgame Theatrical Review
Avengers: Endgame   Avengers: Endgame Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  4/23/2019 7:00 PM EDT
Yes, people die…just like in real life.  Yes, some superheroes come back to continue on the legacy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and yes, some don't.  It's been eleven years and twenty-one movies in the making and now we get to watch as the Avengers battle Thanos for control of the galaxy.  It's easy to say that Avengers: E...
