REVIEW: ‘Knott’s Scary Farm’ is a scream with two all-new mazes, returning favorites, live entertainment

No one does Halloween like Knott’s Scary Farm, and that’s truer than ever in 2018. Back with a vengeance, the original theme park haunt event is jam-packed with monsters, mazes, and entertainment. On opening night we were invited to sample everything SoCal’s premier Halloween event entails, and we were thrilled with the results (and a little hoarse from screaming). Let’s break down what you can expect from a...

REVIEW: ‘RIP TOUR’ at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights is to die for!

Spending upwards of $300 is no joke. Whatever you’re paying for is going to have be something you’re really passionate about and as I learned this year, I’m pretty passionate about visiting Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood! On opening weekend, my brother and I dove in feet first to try the newly-updated RIP TOUR and I am very happy to say I felt like I got my money’s worth. Making the...

REVIEW: ‘SOLO’ soars on home release despite flying low at the box office

SOLO is a solid movie but a blockbuster franchise it did not launch. Still, it’s a great adventure flick and it’s flying into home release starting today. It’s an odd conundrum because the movie itself is pretty good and yet it didn’t really gain much traction with fans. It had a high-profile directorial change pretty late in the game which didn’t help the buzz and then remnant backlash to the...

REVIEW: Musical movie FREAKY FRIDAY brings heaping dose of Disney family fun in home release

FREAKY FRIDAY is a franchise that we never really knew was a franchise and now the book-turned-movie-turned-stage-musical-readapted-into-a-musical-tv-movie is going to be available for home release. The end result? Something that perhaps might enchant new audiences but otherwise is pretty standard for what you might expect from a Disney Channel Original Movie. I’m always down for a movie musical and the songs here on par...

REVIEW: Run amok with the new HOCUS POCUS 25th Anniversary Edition

For as long as I can remember, HOCUS POCUS has been a Halloween time classic for me and my family and yet always slightly disappointed because it never quite seems to get its due fair shake with a home release. In recent years, the film seems to have had a small bit of a rebirth, further cementing its cult-status and now on the event of its 25th Anniversary, you can bring home HOCUS POCUS 25th Anniversary latest Edition. Does it come...

REVIEW: CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is very sweet without being saccharine but does it satisfy?

Winnie the Pooh and crew are back in Disney’s CHRISTOPHER ROBIN. Is the new live-action sequel adaptation of the classic animated stories worth the wait? Well, that’s a sort of sticky question to answer. While I didn’t walk out of the advance screening feeling that I’d wasted my time, I didn’t leave exuberant and giddy, either. There’s a good movie in CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, it just didn’t quite...

REVIEW: Float like a butterfly, sting like ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

It seems odd to follow up AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, perhaps the dreariest non-DC superhero film of all time, with ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, an action packed comedy full of fast laughs, sight gags, and Paul Rudd facial expressions. I could do with less dreariness myself, so ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is a welcome change – mostly because it takes place before (and maybe during?) the events of INFINITY WAR. This has been a big year for Marvel....
