“The Visit”

Sending the kids off to spend the weekend with the Grandparents will never seem quite the same again after seeing “The Visit”.

“A Walk in the Woods”

Robert Redford and Nick Nolte take a delightfully funny “Walk in the Woods,” and Nolte just might walk off with an Oscar nomination.

Some trips just aren’t worth leaving home. I’m referring to wasting gas and the price of admission just to see “Vacation”.

“Infinitely Polar Bear”

Zoe Saldana could write a book about life with her bipolar, manic depressive husband, Mark Ruffalo.

“Mr. Holmes”

It may come as a shock to learn that Sherlock Holmes may never have actually said, “elementary my dear Watson”.


The title “Train Wreck” for the hilarious sex comedy making a star out of Amy Schumer, refers to Schumer’s self-destructive love life.

“The Gallows”
