During this time, Walt Disney Pictures released what are now classic films including "The Little Mermaid", "Beauty and the Beast", and "The Lion King". In 1992, they also released "Aladdin",  based on the class... Read More

In 2014, we were introduced to John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves (The Matrix). Originally, Wick was a former hitman trying to live a more normal life but after his wife died and her last gift to him, a dog, was killed by some Russian mobsters, all bets were off. Wick returns to the life he knows best - the life he excels at to get revenge. The film... Read More

In 1997, we were first introduced to the top-secret agency called Men In Black, whose purpose is to monitor alien activity on Earth. We met Agents Jay (Will Smith; Aladdin) and K (Tommy Lee Jones; Jason Bourne) and got a glimpse inside their world.  We then saw two other releases - Men in Black II in 2002 and Men in Bl...

High school can be tough. For some, it can be an absolute nightmare. There will always be "that crowd" of kids who deem themselves superior, pulling pranks often on vulnerable victims. These victims can go either way in life - they can rise above their torment and become stronger for it or they can be left permanently scarred in ways that... Read More

We all know the story of Superman - an alien baby from another planet crashes down to Earth and becomes a heroic icon to the world. Well, what happens when those extraordinary gifts are not used for the greater good? What if the child is inherently bad and will stop at nothing to use his powers to destroy all those around him? Brightburn tells this... Read More

The highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of 21 films over the course of 11 years. It all began in 2008 with Iron Man, launching Robert Downey, Jr. back into superstardom. He was not only believable as Tony Stark, but he WAS Tony Stark.  Once again, we were treated to the talent that Downey, Jr. possesses and t... Read More

John Hughes is responsible for so many classic 1980s coming of age stories. The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, just to name a few. He is also responsible for 1985's Frankensteinesque feature film, Weird Science, which is available now on a special collector's edition Blu-ray from Arrow. Weird Science tells t... Read More

Alita: Battle Angel is a film that was a long time in the making. James Cameron first read  Yukito Kishiro's Manga, Gunnm, twenty years ago. He wanted to make this into a film but due to his "Avatar" projects, "Alita" was put on the back burner. As time went on Cameron knew that he just couldn't fit the film in... Read More
