Alfred Hitchcock: The Ultimate Collection   The Birds Blu-ray Review

Alfred Hitchcock is arguably one of the best directors of all time.  Known as the "Master of Suspense" he helped to innovate psychological thriller films and influence many of the directors working today.  His "personal view" approach to camera work has been copied countless times over as it seems to create a more inti...

There are people who selflessly put their lives on the line for others all the time and our civil service workers can be counted among this group.  Police officers and firefighters put themselves in harms way without much thought to the danger that could befall them.  They are unsung heroes who don't get as much credit as they deserve.&nb...

There is a reason they say the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year and everyone sings songs about it.  It's a time when people tend to be more generous and forgiving and a spirit of peace and goodwill abounds.  That is until you walk into your local mall or superstore.  The Holidays have become so commercialized that it ...

Everyone should have a few good friends they can count on and keep for life and many people meet that group in their college years.  There is something about being in our late teens/early twenties with a new found freedom that makes us want to go out and do stupid things with others, which helps us form a bond with the people we are close to a...

Most little boys and some little girls dream of being a superhero.  Fighting crime with special powers, doing good for humanity, and taking down the bad guys has a certain allure.  It's part of the reason comic books are so popular.  But every so often a regular person decides to take on the challenge, generally with disastrous resul...

In 1981, a musical by Henry Krieger and Tom Eyen called Dreamgirls hit Broadway.  Based on the 1960's R&B acts trying and somewhat succeeding to make it in show business, it was nominated for 13 Tony awards, ultimately winning 6 plus two Grammys as well.  In 2006, Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast – 2017 live-acti...

Almost anyone who travels fears a plane crash at some point in their lives.  But what happens when it is in a small plane in a remote area of the mountains with no flight plan submitted so no one knows you are missing?  And what happens when the tail of the plane with the homing beacon landed on a different part of the mountain? And what ... Read More

It's been almost 30 years since A Fish Called Wanda was in movie theaters.
