Rough Night Theatrical Review
Rough Night   Rough Night Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  15/06/2017 13:20 EDT
In a year in which female empowerment has already permeated major motion pictures, Sony offers up its latest entry with this summer's version of The Hangover entitled Rough Night. What starts out as some harmless fun in the form of a bachelorette party winds up being a series of mishaps that creates the most surreal evening some...

Cars 3 Theatrical Review
Cars 3   Cars 3 Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  15/06/2017 10:19 EDT
From the minute we met Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson; Wedding Crashers) in Cars, we, as an audience, were enchanted.  He was the self-assured, confident race car with a little bit of cockiness thrown in - but hey, what else can you expect from the best.  When he loses his way and finds himself in a small town, he learns humilit...

The Mummy Theatrical Review
The Mummy   The Mummy Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  07/06/2017 16:52 EDT
If you are anything like me, you loved 1999's The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser (School Ties; Gods and Monsters) and Rachel Weisz (The Bourne Legacy).  It was fun, well done and included some interesting ideas about history.  When I heard it was being "reimagined" starring Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible) and Russell C...

Churchill Theatrical Review
Churchill   Churchill Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  01/06/2017 11:13 EDT
There have been numerous books and movies about Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill over the years and in a 2002 poll, he was named the greatest Briton of all time.  He led the United Kingdom through some tumultuous times and was always seen as a great statesman.  However, behind the scenes, he wasn't necessarily as eloquent sometim...

Wonder Woman Theatrical Review
Wonder Woman   Wonder Woman Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  01/06/2017 10:02 EDT
As many a young girl before and after, I dreamed of being Wonder Woman. Years [decades] would pass with multitudes of proposed actors and storylines inspiring an "eh, I can see that," at best. Then came the age of MCU & DCEU (Marvel Cinematic & DC Extended Universes, respectively); and, of course, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious; Ke... Read More

Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Theatrical Review
Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales   Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  25/05/2017 10:15 EDT
Apparently, there was a fourth installment to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise back in 2011.  On Stranger Tides.  While the box office success tells otherwise, the film is likely the most panned.  If Pirates fans can overlook their disappointment with the last installment, they will be more than content to have returned for thi...

Baywatch Theatrical Review
Baywatch   Baywatch Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  24/05/2017 15:46 EDT
Full (or, at least, sincere) Disclosure: Upon hearing early whispers of the long rumored big screen resuscitation of Baywatch, I felt like the inspiration for that "slap in the face" emoji.  That's as much as the Hoff and I agree.  The original Mitch Buchannon, David Hasselhoff (Knight Rider; Guardians of The Galaxy 2), disclose...

Everything, Everything Theatrical Review
Everything, Everything   Everything, Everything Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  18/05/2017 17:16 EDT
On the surface, it is a sweet, charming story about young love with a dramatic twist.  As it unfolds, the layers reveal so much more. The story is told in a visually appealing manner that will draw the attention of its intended market base of teens/young adults while introducing complex, mature themes that will engage their parents and open co...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Theatrical Review
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2   Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  04/05/2017 09:50 EDT
In 2014, Marvel Studios released one of their lesser known movies, Guardians of the Galaxy.  Expecting the film to be modestly successful, I'm sure they were shocked when it became a huge summer blockbuster.  With cute characters, funny moments, a kick butt soundtrack and some great special effects, it quickly became an audience ...

The Lost City of Z Theatrical Review
The Lost City of Z   The Lost City of Z Theatrical Review
(Judith Raymer)  20/04/2017 11:20 EDT
Being wonderfully unspectacular (in the Hollywood sense) is precisely what makes this film unassumingly spectacular.  Missing are the elaborate sets and city populations worth of extras.  In their stead, indigenous tribespeople from the Colombian jungles where the film was shot was included for authenticity.  Lacking are the costumes...
