There are few great love stories in the world. When it comes to movies most romantic stories barely register on our radar. It is not an easy thing to create dialogue that doesn't come off stale or melodramatic. Such is not the case of the classic Shakespearean story of Romeo & Juliet. There are few who could say that they do not know the story.... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  10/27/2010 8:31 PM EDT
The Robocop movie, when originally released was quite successful in the theaters. It did well enough that it went on to spawn two sequels. On the surface the film comes off as your standard action film; a tough as nails hero against seemingly impossible odds. What some viewers may not notice right off that bat is the subtle message about the overwh... Read More
