(Allison Rose)  12/07/2021 11:27 EDT
If you were a teenager in the 1980s, Filmmaker John Hughes gave your generation a voice.  From Weird Science and Pretty in Pink to Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, he combined the angst of young love with the insanity of the high school food chain to capture a snapshot of Generation X during their formidable years.  In 1986, Paramo...

In 1982 director Walter Hill (Brewster's Millions) brought together Eddie Murphy (Coming to America) and Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides) in 48Hrs., a film that has since become attributed with the beginnings of the buddy cop movie genre.  Several series, including Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon, followed this new trend, mostly with great...

Last Train from Gun Hill   Last Train from Gun Hill Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  23/06/2021 12:18 EDT
While the concept and development of the television set had been around since the early 1900s, it was considered a luxury item that didn't become a staple in homes everywhere until sometime in the late 1950's – early 1960's.   As a way to compete with the convenience of watching shows at home, Paramount Pictures engineers created VistaVi...

Carry on my wayward son, there'll be peace when you are done…so begins the song by Kansas that has become associated with the WB/CW television show, Supernatural.  Those lyrics perfectly reflect the idea and premise of the show that has entertained audiences for fifteen seasons.  After three hundred and twenty-seven episodes, t...

In September of 1966, an action/spy fiction television show first aired on CBS.  Mission: Impossible aired for seven seasons (171 episodes) before going off the air and gave us an iconic line, "This message will self-destruct", that many still recognize today.  Fifteen years later, the show was revived but only lasted two years....

The Marksman   The Marksman Blu-ray Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/05/2021 09:51 EDT
Actor Liam Neeson (Schindler's List) has a particular set of skills…He can scowl with the best of them, he can expertly handle a firearm, and he can threaten a bad guy with a gravelly voice and sound menacing.  He has made a career of, more often than not, portraying these types of characters and generally does a good job of it. So, whe... Read More
