For the last ten years, Marvel Studios has been entertaining us with tales of superheroes and Gods.  In the first half of 2018 alone we were treated to blockbusters The Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War and as we hit the halfway point of the year they are once again delighting us with their next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Ant...

Why is it movies about heists always make it seem so easy as if anyone could rob a bank or armored car?  It promotes a false sense of hope as well thought out plans seem to go off without a hitch (well not always but you know what I mean).  It's not surprising then that four College kids decided, planned and executed a heist to steal ...

Twenty-five years ago we were taken to an Island and transported back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth.  Jurassic Park was an immediate box office hit which spawned two sequels.  In 2015 the series got a reboot when Jurassic World came to theaters and once again was a big hit.  Naturally the success of the film made it impo...

The year was 1960 and the "rat pack"…Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc. starred in Ocean's 11 about a group of guys who attempt to rob five Las Vegas Casinos in one night.  Forty-one years later the film got a reboot (titled Ocean's Eleven –not 11) and starred Brad Pitt (Mr. & Mrs. Smith) and Geo...

Survival...Perseverance…Strength.  How much can we as human beings handle when pushed to our limits?  How strong is our will to live?  For Tami Oldham (Shailene Woodley; Divergent Series)  those questions would be answered in one of the most terrifying events as she struggled to live at sea after a category four hurricane...

The Star Wars Saga was meant to be a series of nine films chronicling the rebel alliance as they try to defeat the Empire.   Since 1977, we have been watching as Luke, Leia and Han have been fighting evil and saving the day (or at least trying to).  In 2016, we got even more than we expected when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story filled i...

We've all been there.  The summer of our teenage years that has a profound impact on the rest of our lives.  The time that we have that great epiphany that takes us one step closer to the adult we are destined to become.  Occasionally a wise and learned adult helps us navigate this transition and generally, there is some challenge we...

RBG may sound like a company name or an abbreviation for a drug.  However, it is, in fact, the initials for one of the most influential women in the United States. Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsberg is pretty much a household name in this country who made a name for herself as a champion of gender equality issues. ... Read More
