Some would say Phineas T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman; Logan) was a dreamer. Others would say he was a businessman. Yet, some would argue he was both and some would say he scammed people.  The truth is probably a little of each but there is no denying he was one of the greatest showmen on Earth.  He gained wealth entertaining people but not...

"Boston Strong" - the phrase has come to symbolize a feeling of hope and community surrounding a horrible tragedy and a horrific act of terrorism on American soil. The 2013 event shone a spotlight on the City of Boston and the Boston Athletic Association and has sparked two major motion pictures. It also prompted director Jon Dunham (Spir... Read More

In April of 2013, the landscape of Boston and the marathon were changed forever. A simple act of terrorism rocked the city and the Boston Athletic Association to its very core and kept the world waiting with bated breath as the drama unfolded. On that day at 2:49 pm, two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line of the race killing three people,... Read More

Queen Victoria (Judi Dench; Skyfall) was known for being cantankerous and mean especially as she aged so it's interesting that later in her life she found an unlikely friendship in a poor young man from India.  Their relationship became a thorn in the side of the British Empire and her household staff but she obviously didn't care and as the Q...

There are many people who believe there are aliens out there in the universe and some who think they live amongst us.  There are also people who believe there is a secret government agency covering up the existence of aliens.  Nineteen ninety-seven's comedy and subsequent sequels take a humorous look at the idea that both aliens and a...

If you were a kid of the 80's and 90's, you most likely watched Full House every week.   The half-hour comedy centered on the Tanner family lead by their Patriarch, Danny Tanner (Bob Saget; America's Funniest Videos).  After his wife's passing, Danny's brother in law, Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos; ...

As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated, "It takes a village to raise a child" and it certainly seems that way in Reese Witherspoon's (Walk the Line) latest romantic comedy, Home Again.  While the concept is only one part of the plot, it seems to be a fairly significant part and one of the reasons three young men are...

The Washington Post was pretty much a local paper until it blew the roof off the White House when it reported on the Watergate scandal in 1973.  However, it also made a name for itself as an investigative journalistic newspaper a few years earlier when it followed up on a New York Times story about the Vietnam War and published ...

Imagine being a nine or ten-year-old boy who is bullied at school and who is so afraid of his father that he lets a good man get fired for a mistake he made.  For Alan Parrish (Robin Williams; Mrs. Doubtfire) this is his reality one day in 1969.  As he contemplates running away from home, his fate is decided by another turn of events...

Ever wanted to pull off the perfect heist?  Ever have the opportunity and think you could plan a way to steal millions of dollars? What if that plan included breaking someone out of prison for less than 12 hours and sneaking them back in before the prison guards noticed they were gone?  For Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum; Magic Mike) that is...
