‘Overcomer’ Home Video Now Available

Did you miss Overcomer when it came to theaters earlier this year? If so, you missed what has been called the “#1 Inspirational Family Film of 2019.” That is a pretty lofty claim. While some critics don’t agree with that sentiment (the movie stands with a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes from reviewers), the audiences of the movie gave the film high praise with a 98% fresh rating! It also earned an “A+” rating from CinemaScore thank you very much. Read More >>>

Scooby-Doo, Where are You?

Over the years, Scooby-Doo has taken on different formats and animation styles. Warner Bros. has released a new movie trailer for yet another incarnation. Unlike 2017’s series, Be Cool Scooby-Doo! which featured an animation style that ruined the childhoods of many, Scoob! will give a sigh of relief. Read More >>>

Frozen 2

Making sequels are a tricky thing. Walt Disney himself rarely made them. Sure, they are often a cash cow for filmmakers, but fans are often disappointed because the secondary stories don’t measure up to the first. The Toy Story franchise is a great exception this, but even this last summer’s installment of the series drew division among its fans. While some praised Disney/Pixar for yet another story, others felt that they should have left the story well enough alone. There might be similar arguments for Disney’s Frozen 2. Read More >>>

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker

Now we come to the Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker and the end of the original Star Wars saga – or so they say. The series’ finale has everything you would want for a spectacular ending including a number of cameos of characters we haven’t seen in a while (Jar-Jar is nowhere to be seen), lots of action and a satisfying ending. However, the final product isn’t as spectacular as it should be. It’s really good, but I doubt anyone will think of it as a perfect film. Read More >>>

Just Mercy

Just Mercy

Destin Daniel Cretton’s latest film, Just Mercy exposes the truth that people like me never wanted to know truly existed. Based on Bryan Stevenson’s book, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, this movie records events that happened not that long ago but it feels as if they had occurred a lot longer…Stevenson is a devout Christian and his faith is likely a huge motive for doing what he does. But with the exception of a few brief mentions, his faith is never really shown in this film. Even so, this is movie not to be missed. Read More >>>

The Good Liar

I think The Good Liar is going to be one of those films that you with either like it a lot or dislike it a little. Some are comparing the Bill Condon film to the mysteries and thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock while others are not so impressed. One thing that just about everybody agrees on is that the film makes for a good excuse to see two cinematic greats play off of each other in grand style. Read More >>>

Dark Waters

As you know, many films have claim to be “based on a true story” or “inspired by a true story,” but Hollywood has a tendency to mix things up to make things more dramatic. However, in the case of Focus Feature’s latest release, Dark Waters, it appears that the story presented is pretty close to what happened, at least Matthew Phelan from Slate thinks so. He performed a bunch of interviews with the real people portrayed in the film and most of it checks out. That only makes this chilling tale a lot scarier. Read More >>>
