Starting out, you instantly love Tom, played by Segel, and Violet, played ...

'The Raven': 4.5 out of 5 stars

Being a lover of all things Edgar Allan Poe, I adored this movie. Each of his short stories that were used throughout the movie as murder scenes were incredibly accurate and eerily real. Seeing his writings come to life in such gory and horrific ways were just as Poe, if he were somehow able to see this movie, probably would have wanted them to be portrayed on the big screen. Right from the beginning, you ...

"Modern Family" - 5 out of 5 stars

The setting was beautiful, out of a romantic film that Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) would have loved, but would make the more stern Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) would have scream. The wedding had all white accessories, with the ring bearers and flower girls twirling around innocently. One special girl believed it would be good to show her appreciation by unleashing one word so foul (its four letters and rhymes with suck) that her two daddies baulked ...
