Every once in a while there comes a movie that tugs at your heartstrings and energizes your soul.  Alpha is such a movie. Directed by Albert Hughes (From Hell, Menace II Society) it tells a stunning tale of loss, friendship, and courage after a young boy Kodi Smit-McPhee (X-Men: Apocalypse) is left for dead by his tribe and has to find his way...

It's a simple matter of "by the books" numbers.  Option one…diplomacy.  Option two…military.  Option three…Overwatch.  What, do you ask, is Overwatch?  They are the non-government sanctioned tactical team sent in to do the dirty work when all else fails.  They are the ones who use any... Read More

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 ...

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.

For the last ten years, Marvel Studios has been entertaining us with tales of superheroes and Gods.  In the first half of 2018 alone we were treated to blockbusters The Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War and as we hit the halfway point of the year they are once again delighting us with their next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ant...

American Animals Theatrical Review

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  21/06/2018 09:20 EDT
Why is it movies about heists always make it seem so easy as if anyone could rob a bank or armored car?  It promotes a false sense of hope as well thought out plans seem to go off without a hitch (well not always but you know what I mean).  It's not surprising then that four College kids decided, planned and executed a heist to steal ...
