Rating: « out of ««««

Running Time: 86 minutes

The Dr. Seuss book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! has been a children’s mainstay on reading lists since its publication in 1957. For many, the iconic 1966 television version of the story, featuring the booming voice of Boris Karloff, will always be the perfect...

Rating: «« out of ««««

Running Time: 109 minutes

Taken on their own, war movies can be pretty traumatic and disturbing. This week, Overlord attempts to combine elements of a WWII picture with, oddly enough, a creature feature. For audiences, that means an extra helping of bloodshed between the battles.

The end result is a bit trashy and something of a mixed bag, but one that should entertain those primarily looking for simple horror thrills over serious war drama.

The story involves a U.S. airborne regiment on a mission behind enemy lines in France.

With Allied forces ready to storm the beaches on D-Day, the group are tasked with destroying an enemy radio tower in a village...

Running Time: 99 minutes

Most people, myself included, typically think of The Nutcracker simply as a famous ballet. However, the stage production is actually based on a 1812 short story by author E.T.A Hoffmann.

The new Disney film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms uses the written work as a loose inspiration to tell a new tale. In some ways, one might even think of it as a filmic sequel. It is a colorful picture and one that may appeal to small children, but doesn’t translate nearly as well for older members of the audience.

Clara (Mackenzie Foy) is a downcast youngster, upset over the death of her mother enough to take it out on her father (Matthew...

‘Johnny English Strikes Again’ misses the mark

Running Time: 88 minutes

It has been 15 years since British secret agent Johnny English (who was no doubt a parody of James Bond) first debuted on the big screen. Frankly, I can’t specifically remember much at all about the original film, but it was successful enough to spawn a 2011 sequel that fared equally well at the box office.

After a profitable run in other parts of the world, this week sees the release of Johnny English Strikes Again in North America.

When a mysterious computer hacker releases the names of every MI7 operative to the public, the U.K.’s prime minister (Emma Thompson) is forced to take very drastic measures. First, she must...
