The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard   The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  6/14/2021 12:18 PM EDT
When one thinks of the greatest comedic trios, the obvious first group that pops into most people's minds is The Three Stooges.  Larry, Moe, and Curly had great timing and chemistry and made millions of people laugh for years.  Next might be Murray, Ramos, and Aykroyd in the blockbuster film, Ghostbusters.  More recently, Cooper, Hel...

The curtain opens…the setting is a small private school in Connecticut called Wesleyan University.  We meet a young man of Puerto Rican descent, named Lin – Manuel, who grew up in Upper Manhattan.  The year is 2000, the season is spring.  This bright, creative, young man is presenting a version of a previous class assign...

Cruella   Cruella Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/27/2021 9:42 AM EDT
Let's face it, Disney has some of the best-animated villains of all time, especially the female ones.  From the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty to Ursula in The Little Mermaid, they are the epitome of pure evil.  Of course, somewhere towards the top of the list lies the woman who steals dogs ...

A Quiet Place Part II   A Quiet Place Part II Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/26/2021 1:23 PM EDT
College friends and co-writers Brian Woods and Scott Beck (Haunt) had an idea for a film and wrote a "spec script" for it.  In 2016, John Krasinski (The Office) read A Quiet Place and signed on to direct and rewrite the script.  By the time filming began in the Fall of 2017, Krasinski and his wife, actress Emily Blunt (Mary Popp...

Spiral: From The Book of Saw   Spiral: From The Book of Saw Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/13/2021 8:41 PM EDT
There are various subgenres under the movie category horror.  Some are blood and gore and carnage, some are psychological thrillers, and some are both.  Back in 2004, the world got a glimpse of the latter when Saw became an international hit. Over the next thirteen years, seven more films were released to varying degrees of success. ... Read More

Profile   Profile Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/13/2021 7:20 PM EDT
Social Media has opened up a whole new world full of ideas and ideals to individuals of all ages.  It can also be a scary place where despicable individuals lurk to prey on innocent and/or naïve people, many of whom are impressionable young women.  These predators try everything from indecent exposure online to meeting up with these ...

Army of The Dead   Army of The Dead Theatrical Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  5/13/2021 8:42 AM EDT
What would happen if you took Ocean's Eleven and threw in a Zombie apocalypse?  I'm guessing it would look something like Army of the Dead – not to be confused with the 2008 movie of the same name.  The components are all there…a flashy casino, a vault full of money, and a TON of zombies.  However, these aren't just any ...
