In 1960, Anthony Perkins introduced the world to Norman Bates, a serial killer wielding a knife. It became a classic in the world of horror films and set a standard of what scares us. Over Sixty years later, his son, Oz Perkins, made his writing and directorial debut with The Blackcoat's Daughter, a psychological thriller that pays a little bit of ... Read More

The last day of school is a happy occasion for every student and teacher but especially gratifying for high school seniors finishing their formal education for good (unless of course, they plan to go to college). At Roosevelt High School, that means tons of senior pranks and teacher frustration. This year it also means teacher reviews and terminati... Read More

Meeting the girlfriend's family for the first time can be nerve-wracking, especially when she is white and they haven't been told that you are an African-American male.  Let's face it, for all the talk, racism still exists in this country. That was the dilemma for Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya; Sicario).  He was going to the home ...

The Space Between Us Blu-ray Review
The Space Between Us   The Space Between Us Blu-ray Review
(Jennifer Broderick)  15/05/2017 16:28 EDT
There have always been space movies spattered throughout the years and they all seem to instill a sense of survival mode while watching.  You root for the astronaut to hold his breath when the face mask cracks; you hope the rocket will have enough fuel to make it safely back home, and you pray that the Apollo doesn't burn up re-entering th...

Heat Blu-ray Review
Heat: Director’s Definitive Edition   Heat Blu-ray Review
(Nathan M Rose)  09/05/2017 10:58 EDT
Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner… It was with these words the world was introduced to the trailer for the Michael Mann (Public Enemies) film that would become a classic. Bringing together two powerhouse actors face to face for the firs... Read More

Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
The Complete Fourth Season   Orange Is The New Black Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  09/05/2017 09:56 EDT
In the past, there have been television shows about life in prison.  That is nothing original.  However, most of them focus on men in prison so when Orange is the New Black, which views life in a women's correctional facility, debuted on Netflix on July 11, 2013, it was somewhat groundbreaking.  Not only was it differen...

For those who might have missed the theatrical release (and, those who didn't), the highly anticipated Fifty Shades Darker is being released on Blu-ray & DVD (with a Digital HD copy included).  The explosively popular second installment of the erotic (ahem) literary Fifty Shades series, and sequel to the "not e...

Divorce Blu-ray Review
The Complete First Season   Divorce Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/05/2017 16:22 EDT
HBO has more original programming than ever before and the majority of it is top notch, award winning fare.  This year, they added another show to their line up and it seems to want to continue the tradition of excellence they have put forth.  Divorce debuted on October 9, 2016, and by November it had been renewed for a second season. &nb...

The Salesman Blu-ray Review
The Salesman   The Salesman Blu-ray Review
(Sean Ferguson)  02/05/2017 13:59 EDT
It always amazes me as to what makes a picture popular. Is it the stars headlining the film? Is it the studio that releases the film? Is it all the advertising used to promote it? What if it all came down to the story that drove the film? If that were the case, The Salesman would be a box office success right up there alongside Logan... Read More
