Claire Foy is certainly not a new face on the scene but with Netflix's hit series, The Crown, she has become a much more recognizable one. Her portrayal as Queen Elizabeth II has received much acclaim, and she even earned a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama, as well as Screen Actors Guild Award...

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...

It's no secret that Walt Disney had a passion for flying.  He had his own private jets and tried to incorporate flying into his many of his animated films. Of course, this enthusiasm naturally lent itself to telling the story of J. M. Barrie's classic character, Peter Pan.  As a boy living in Neverland and refusing to grow up, Pet... Read More

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...

It is hard to believe that our love affair with dinosaurs was satisfied twenty-five years ago when Jurassic Park "roared" into movie theaters worldwide.  The film became a phenomenon and sparked the imagination of scientists everywhere.  Imagine being able to create dinosaurs from their own fossilized DNA.  The fi...

Why are we so fascinated by war?  Time after time movies depicts historical battles with dramatic flair and an increasing level of blood and violence.  If you were to Google movies about World War II I'm sure there will a plethora of films listed and probably the same for the Revolutionary and Civil wars.  Once such film was 2000's T...

The world of espionage is a never-ending game of cat and mouse.  Countries spying on each other in an attempt to find out their dirty little secrets.  Agents all over the world working with and against each other simply to get the upper hand.  While most of us live in ignorant bliss and think these dealings only happen in the movies,...

"There's a glitch in The Matrix".  Anyone who was over the age of ten in 1999 should know what that statement means.  The film, directed by the Wachowski Brothers - now Sisters- changed the face of action movies forever in one two hour block of time.  The highly stylized look of The Matrix has been talked about and studied ...
