A death pool is when a group of people will get together and bet on who will die first. This concept was made extremely famous and notable in the 2016 movie Deadpool where bar patrons would bet on which of them would die first.  Whoever wins gets the cash.  Now imagine that concept among a group of friends who choose to bet on which celeb...

Disney animation has had a long and storied past.  From the original classics like Cinderella and Bambi to the newest film, Moana, Disney has produced exceptional movies with soundtracks that touch our lives.  For many years, there seemed to be a lull in Disney films but all that changed in 1989 with&nbs...

A Ronin is described as a wandering samurai in feudal Japan who had no lord or master.  They frequently became mercenaries who killed others for money or who did jobs for hire that other people wouldn't consider attempting.  In 1998, Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) starred in a film called Ronin, however, there were no traditional Samurai in...

There are always "nanny horror stories" in the news.  Babysitters who abuse their charges, steal things, etc. and in 1992 movies took it to another level with the story of a nanny our for revenge in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle starring Rebecca De Mornay (Risky Business).  Twenty-five years later we have another tale...

Lucifer: The Complete Second Season   Lucifer DVD Review
(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  08/22/2017 9:01 AM EDT
The fallen angel who oversees hell is depicted in many forms and with many different names. There is Satan, Beelzebub, the Devil and Lucifer to name a few. The latter has become synonymous with an American police procedural television show starring Tom Ellis (Buffalo Soldiers) and Lauren German (A Walk to Remember). As the cast and crew gear up for...

Going on vacation is something almost everyone anticipates looking forward to doing.  Some choose to head to Europe, some stay closer to home and many choose tropical locations in South America.  Even though some countries have a travel ban or are considered to be dangerous for tourists, many don't care and head to these exotic locations ...

Have you ever had a sworn enemy that you suddenly discover you have to work with on a project?  What if you had to risk your own life protecting that person?  Would you do it?  What would it take to motivate you to do it?  Would you be able to do it without wanting to kill them yourself?  What if it was for the greater good...

Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) has a certain charming quality about him. Whether he is playing a drug dealer in the 1970's or he is romancing a beautiful woman and melting women's' hearts everywhere, he always seems to come across a little bit like a used car salesman to me – but not in a bad way. He is smooth and likable and has a ... Read More

As a parent, what would you do to keep your child safe? Would you lock them in a tower like Rapunzel? For Pauline (Anika Noni Rose; Dreamgirls), it seems that is the only solution but was her decision the right one? For many years, it seemed so until one day everything changed.Maddy (Amandla Stenberg; The Hunger Games) isn't your normal eighteen-ye... Read More
