Drive-Away Dolls Movie / Film Review
Joel and Ethan Coen (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) are brothers who also happen to be award-winning filmmakers. Throughout their career, they have created crime thrillers, dramas, comedies, etc., and seem to excel at them all. Their Dramas have a little bit of comedy thrown in and their comedies are infused with unintended drama. Occasionally, the dynamic duo work on projects witho...

Isle of Hope Movie / Film Review
Omar Romay (Pregnant and Alone) is a television series and film producer who was born in the mid-1950s in Buenos Aires. Fifty years later he came across a one-woman play written by Argentinian actor/author Oscar Martínez called Dias Contador (Days Counted). He liked the play so much, that he gave it to his television director son, Damián, who wrote a screenplay that eventually became t...

Madame Web Movie / Film Review
Almost as long as there have been comic books, there have been movies made about comic book characters. However, over fifteen years ago Marvel studios upped the ante with the release of Iron Man, setting off several phases and numerous movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU. Over time, these films have dwindled in popularity, due in part to their ridiculous plots, as well as ov...

The Hunger Games: Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes Physical Media: 4K UHD Review
September 14, 2008 author Suzanne Collins published the first in a trilogy of young adult novels, titled The Hunger Games. Almost immediately there were talks of adapting the book into a film and the first movie premiered in March of 2012. Following its success, the second and third novels were released as three separate movies - Catching Fire, Mockingjay - Part I, and Mockingjay - Par...

Footloose Physical Media: 4K UHD Review
“Let's Dance!”. It's been forty years since Kevin Bacon (Flatliners) shouted those words at the end of the feature film, Footloose. Forty years since Ren McCormack (Bacon) took on the town council of Bomont, led by Reverend Moore (John Lithgow; Cliffhanger), to request to hold a school dance despite the town's ban on dancing and rock music. To celebrate this milestone anniversary, Para...

Lisa Frankenstein Movie / Film Review
A teen love story for the ages based on the magnificent work of Mary Shelley, Lisa Frankenstein sadly falls short on many levels. Categorized as a comedy/horror/romance, it barely scrapes the surface of any of the genres. It offers a decent cast and a modern twist on classic but can't live up to its predecessor. While it might find an audience with a tween/teen following, it won't be r...

Kindergarten Cop Physical Media: 4K UHD Review
Who can forget the classic line, “It's not a tum-ah”? It has been quoted for over 30 years, ever since John Kimball (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terminator) uttered those words in the hit comedy Kindergarten Cop. With an implausible plot and a hilarious script, the 1990 film showed audiences a different side of the muscular, Austrian bodybuilder turned act...

Argylle Movie / Film Review
Director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) is known for the campy, fun Kinsman film series and, while he has directed other movies, those tend to be among some of his most popular ones. They were also films he co-wrote, adding a more personal touch to the characters and the plots. While his latest movie, Argylle, isn't one he had a hand in writing, it is distinctly Vaughn as it has t...

Lawmen: Bass Reeves Television / Streaming Review
When learning about slavery in the United States and the Civil War, there are a few figures that tend to stand out. Names like Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Harriet Tubman are often discussed as abolitionists and, in Tubman's case, helping slaves make their way to freedom through the Underground Railroad. While these individuals and their extreme acts of bravery are we...

Griselda Television / Streaming Review
From the very beginning, drug cartels would stake their claim to various parts of the United States. If anyone encroached on their territory, all-out war followed until there was a pile of bodies stacked on a street corner. One of the hotbeds in the 1980s for smuggling drugs, specifically cocaine, into America, was Miami, Florida and with various cartels jockeying for power, murders we...

Trolls Band Together Physical Media: 4K UHD Review
It was 2016 when the world first met Poppy (Anna Kendrick; The Pitch Perfect franchise) and Branch (Justin Timberlake; In Time) in the DreamWorks Animation feature film, Trolls. Four years later a sequel, Trolls World Tour was released, followed by last year's Trolls Band Together. It has been two months since the latter film premiered in the United States and this week it has become availab...

Echo Television / Streaming Review
Phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) began a whole new wave of media when the television mini-series, WandaVision, premiered in January 2021. The nine-episode saga ushered in a unique dimension to the MCU, its stories, and its characters. It offered smaller subplots for lesser-utilized characters and opened the door for new characters to be introduced.The fifth limited televisio...

Varsity Blues Physical Media: 4K UHD Review
“In America, we have laws. Laws against killing, laws against stealing. And it is just accepted that as a member of American society, you will live by these laws. In West Canaan, Texas, there is another society which has its own laws. Football is a way of life.”...So begins the 1999 feature film, Varsity Blues. As the monologue, spoken by Jonathan Moxon (James Van Der Beek; Dawson's Creek) e...

The Bricklayer Movie / Film Review
It's a brand-new year and typically that means a time of renewal, growth, and promise. People are making resolutions to lose weight, make personal, professional, and material improvements, repair relationships, etc. It is a time when people believe in promise and hope and become excited for all the new things life might offer in the coming year, including music, movies, and television ...

The Holdovers Physical Media: Blu-ray Review
The end of the year is always filled with excitement and joy. Little children waiting to get presents, parties, and family vacations. For school-age kids, it's a chance to take a break from learning and for those at boarding school, it's an opportunity to go home for a few weeks. However, there seems to always be one teacher left behind to supervise “the holdovers” - those studen...
