In 1991, a movie called Point Break hit theaters and starred Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing) and Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon).  It was a surfer's/stoner's dream and has a cult-like following.  In 2015,  someone at Warner Brothers Entertainment thought it would be a good idea to remake the film but using all ex...

Few spectacles of screen transcend generations with as much cultural reverberations as Star Wars. To revel in its current incarnation is to return to its roots as an experimental space opera, crafted in the mind of a man who would come to be both revered and despised for following his calling.Spanning the gamut of nearly four decades from the belov...
