Don Hall is back with the newest Disney adventure taking us into strange new worlds–sorry, no Star Trek here–in Strange World. I’m sorry but I couldn’t resist a Strange New Worlds comment. After all, this is the year of the strange on both the big screen and small. To anybody expecting to see Pike’s Peak aka Anson Mount, I’m sorry to disappoint you but this has nothing to do with that franchise. It’s nice to…"Strange World: A New Disney Adventure"
Action filmmaker Roland Emmerich took a break from alien invasions to get audiences talking about climate change with The Day After Tomorrow. While this film is a big budget blockbuster, the film’s contents could easily fit in as the SyFy movie of the week. There are certainly elements of the film that might be right but only when spread out over a period of time. The climate crisis is a problem but it’s not going…"The Day After Tomorrow: A Climate Change Thriller"
American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story is a by-the-book sports biopic that would feel right at home on the Hallmark Channel. If you know Kurt Warner’s story, then you already know that he is the greatest undrafted player in NFL history. Undrafted out of Northern Iowa and later released by the Green Bay Packers, Warner ended up stocking shelves at a Hy-Vee grocery store in Cedar Falls, Iowa. From there, he went onto the AFL, NFL Europe, and…"American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story"

Midway is now available to bring home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD following the digital release two weeks ago. Midway pays tribute to fallen American heroes even as the film may also be a spiritual sequel to an earlier Pacific-set World War 2 film, Pearl Harbor. Let’s get it out of the way right now. Roland Emmerich is certainly attracted to directing films that have a large amount of action in them. At…"Midway: Now Available on Home Video"
Midway pays tribute to fallen American heroes even as the film may also be a spiritual sequel to an earlier Pacific-set World War 2 film, Pearl Harbor. Let’s get it out of the way right now. Roland Emmerich is certainly attracted to directing films that have a large amount of action in them. At the same time, this film does not suffer from the problems that brought down Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor. For this, we’re…"Midway Is Better Than Pearl Harbor"
A Dog’s Journey is an emotional rerun of predecessor A Dog’s Purpose so please prepare yourselves accordingly with the right amount of Kleenex. A lot has changed since we last saw Bailey reunited with Ethan (Dennis Quaid) in A Dog’s Purpose. Ethan and Hannah (Marg Helgenberger) now have a granddaughter, Clarity June or CJ (Kathryn Prescott as an young woman). Hannah’s son, Henry, died in a car accident when Gloria (Betty Gilpin) was 8 months…"A Dog’s Journey Tugs At Emotions"

When Scott (Michael Ealy) and Annie (Meagan Good) decide to leave the city for Napa Valley, they’re getting more than they bargained for. They find their dream home in the form of Foxglove even if Bambi killer Charlie Peck (Dennis Quaid) owns it. Scott, perhaps seeing something that Annie doesn’t, decides that the asking…"The Intruder is Thrilling, Predictable"
Kin may mix together so many themes throughout the film while remaining a throwback to the 1980s sci-fi thrillers but with an indie film vibe. Eli (Myles Truitt) is an adopted teenager living with construction supervisor Hal Solinski (Dennis Quaid). With no mom in the picture, it’s up to Hal to enforce some rules onto his adoptive son. Unfortunately for Hal, Eli is the type who gets into trouble at school. While exploring an abandoned building straight…"Kin: 1980s-esque Sci-Fi Thriller With An Indie Vibe"
The Baker Twins, Jonathan Baker and Josh Baker, were on hand for a panel during Wizard World Chicago to discuss their upcoming sci-fi film, Kin. The duo, according to Jonathan, originally thought they would pursue a career in comic books. It’s this thought that made Wizard World Chicago the perfect place for their panel. The panel preceded a Saturday night advanced screening of Kin, opening in theaters this Friday. Jonathan said that they wanted to…"Wizard World: The Baker Twins talk Kin"
