Crazy Rich Asians Theatrical Review
Crazy Rich Asians   Crazy Rich Asians Theatrical Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  14/08/2018 20:37 EDT
It has been 25 years since there has been a major feature film starring an all-Asian cast and I'm sure there is some social commentary dialogue for the large gap in time between the two films.  1993's The Joy Luck Club is a dreary, serious drama about Asian culture, class discrepancies and honor while this year's Crazy Rich Asians ...

It's been a little over 30 years since we first watched Alan "Dutch" Schaefer (Arnold Scharwzenegger; Terminator) battle an alien "big game" hunter in the Film Predator. In 1987 The film opened to mixed reviews but has since become a "new classic" and shows up on endless "top 100" lists.  Three years... Read More

In 2002 audiences were introduced to Frank Martin (Jason Statham; Crank) - the quiet, brooding, self-employed transporter.  He has a set of rules he doesn't break. One – don't look in the package, two – he doesn't "deal" in people, and three – he works alone.  His work is dangerous and he gets paid handsomely f... Read More

First, we had a giant lizard and then came a gigantic gorilla and now we have a gigantic Shark.  Yes, you read that right… one, big ass shark with a whole lot of teeth. Meet Megalodon, or the Meg for short, a prehistoric sea creature thought to be long extinct. Only it isn't and now it has made its way to the surface and is ready to ter... Read More

Avengers: Infinity War   Avengers: Infinity War 4K Ultra HD Review

It's been ten years and 18 films in the making.  Avengers: Infinity War was one of the most anticipated movies of the Spring 2018 and depending on who you ask, it didn't disappoint.  It brought together over 20 Marvel superhero characters and melded all their worlds into the fight to end all fights…the fight for the universe and ha...

The Death of Superman Blu-ray Review

In 1992, DC Comics decided to create a crossover story that saw the Justice League battle Doomsday.  However, unlike most of the DC comics, this story didn't end so well for our superhero friends and, shockingly, ended with Superman's demise.  While some of the media felt it was nothing more than a publicity stunt, it created a th...

Riverdale DVD Review
Riverdale: The Complete Second Season   Riverdale DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  06/08/2018 11:03 EDT
Riverdale Season One began with a murder and ended with a gunshot so it seems no surprise that Season Two was ripe with violence and one dead body piling up after another.  At twenty-two episodes long it offered everything a good nighttime soap opera should have - murders, mysteries, people getting beat up, corruption, wealthy individuals pull...

Dark Crimes Blu-ray Review
Dark Crimes   Dark Crimes Blu-ray Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  30/07/2018 21:48 EDT
When one here's the name Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) the first thing that pops into one's mind is generally slapstick, physical comedies and immature, unintelligent characters.  It was a gamble then for him to take on a depraved and serious film such as Dark Crimes.  The story, as the title would suggest, is dark and some woul...

If you are in your forties or older you undoubtedly remember Goldie Hawn () as the cruel, spoiled heiress who gets amnesia and ends up thinking she is married to Dean (Kurt Russell; The Hateful Eight) and that they have 3 sons.  She cooks and cleans for them and builds a life until one day her memory is triggered and she remembers she is wealt...

The Equalizer   The Equalizer 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  26/07/2018 10:27 EDT
The Equalizer began as a television series on CBS back in the late 1980's and starred Edward Woodward (The Wicker Man). It ran for four seasons and was nominated for numerous awards before being canceled.  In 2014, Denzel Washington (Training Day) brought the character back to life in a feature film that garnered a following among fans and som...
