Anna 4K Ultra HD Review
Director Luc Besson (Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element) is known for making movies that combined drama with some action sequences. He also tends to highlight strong female characters, whether it is a young girl following a hitman or a woman who is running out of time. His latest effort, Anna, once again encompasses these elements, including excellent fight scenes mixed with an ...

Downton Abbey Theatrical Review
"Downton Abbey" is sumptuous and stylish in a way the touches your heart and moves your soul. It's rather like a cherished overcoat you snuggle into in winter that's at once familiar, comfortable and warm. Of all the British period pieces about upper class families living in the 1920's that I've seen over the years, this one is by far the best. With a meticulous eye to detail, at ev...

Hellraiser Blu-ray Review
Arrow Home Video has such sights to show you. In case you have been sleeping your way through the last 8 years of Physical Media releases, Arrow has decided to re-release the Hellraiser films, and now is your chance to get in on it.Originally released in theaters in 1987, Hellraiser didn't look or feel like your typical 80's horror film, and that's because it wasn't. And Clive Barker was not your ...

Ad Astra Theatrical Review
Before you ask and to clear up one piece of confusion about this film, the title "Ad Astra" is Latin for "To The Stars", which this movie is somewhat all about. I say somewhat because the story borrows liberally from Joseph Conrad's ‘Heart Of Darkness" in the same way ‘Apocalypse Now' utilized the journey and the Captain Kurtz character. The film also pays...

Hustlers Theatrical Review
The moment Jennifer Lopez steps on to the stage dressed in dental floss, and smiles and begins her Pole Dancing routine as the patrons of "Move Gentleman's Club" throw hundreds of dollars at her, you know this is going to be the role she'll be remembered for. Not since she and George Clooney tussled in the trunk of a car in "Out Of Sight" has she even approached the career...

Booksmart Blu-ray Review
High School… some of the best and worst years of a young person's life has been the backdrop for so many movies throughout history. Time and time again we see the stereotypical characters – the jocks, the popular girls, the nerds, the druggies, etc. all exploring and experimenting as they learn valuable life lessons and gain personal growth. With so many coming of age stories al...

Aladdin 4K Ultra HD Review

It Chapter Two Theatrical Review
Arguably, one of the most highly anticipated films of this year is the ending of the highest-grossing horror film of all time…It. People have been waiting for It Chapter Two since they flocked to theaters two years ago to watch Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgard; Deadpool 2) terrorize the small town of Derry. I suppose the "fear" here for Director Andy Muschietti (Mam...

Ma Blu-ray Review
High school can be tough. For some, it can be an absolute nightmare. There will always be "that crowd" of kids who deem themselves superior, pulling pranks often on vulnerable victims. These victims can go either way in life - they can rise above their torment and become stronger for it or they can be left permanently scarred in ways that can cause them to want to harm themselves or othe...
